Previously, the Groove integration was restricted to connecting to their ticketing system.
This update allows you to sync your content from GrooveHQ, so you can deliver your existing Groove hosted content via elevio, and all that comes with it.
To take advantage of this, head to the integrations page and click on the Groove logo, add in your subdomain and support inbox address and hit save. Too easy!
While the team are powering away at a few major items that are just around the corner, there was still plenty to do to keep things moving with the rollout of V4.
So, this update caters mostly to updates and bugfixes, it's pretty dull and boring to be honest. But for a good number of you, these updates will make life just that little bit easier. As always, keep sending through any issues you find so we can patch them moving forward.
We'll reveal all the big stuff soon... real soon.

We're super excited to announce the immediate release of version 4.
Well, the whole thing. This is a complete rebuild from the ground up, months of work has gone into this, and there's a decision behind every little thing.
But here's a few key things to note:
The new elevio is designed to deliver content in the most streamlined way possible, while staying out of the users' way.
It's a balance of being clean and beautiful, without stealing the show. Hundreds of revisions have got us to where we are now, along with heavy real world testing. We know your users will love it.
In the previous version, the searching was a very simple (aka "dumb") filter. This new release features powerful, deep, weighted search, so the right content is surfaced with minimal effort.
While you've always been able to show 'related articles' to a user, with our new analytics backend we're able to present ever evolving smart suggestions to your users based on what people have been looking at in the past. Think of it like a built in concierge.
This new release tracks what is going on within elevio, so you can make data driven decisions. Over time as we're able to analyze the data we'll be providing you suggestions on what you need to know, and what needs fixing not only in your documentation, but in your product. With the goal of removing all the hurdles to your customers' success.
This only scratches the surface. And now that we're rolling out this new release, we've got a solid base to build on.
Expect a lot from us.
When you're ready to make the move, follow the instructions on the version switch page below, and you're good to go!
To help you with managing the keywords for any given page, now we show you which articles will appear as suggested articles to the user when they view elevio on your site.
This makes it super easy to get a preview of what the effects of your changes will have.
Here's an example:
A new module has been added to the arsenal, the aptly named "Trigger Module".
This now module is a quick way to trigger another widget you have installed on your site to open, common uses for this are opening up a third party chat window, currently this module supports the following tasks:
Open Chatlio chat window
Open Intercom chat window
Open LiveChatInc chat window
Open Olark chat window
Open Smooch.io chat window
Open SnapEngage chat window
Open UserEngage chat window
Open Zopim chat window

This one's been on the back burner for a long time, but yesterday we finally pulled the trigger to move our entire infrastructure to Amazon AWS.
This move brings with it higher stability with fail overs, no down-time rolling deployments, load balancing, and redundancy.
While we made the move, access to the dashboard was halted so we could migrate everything across, but there was no downtime at all for the embeddable on any sites, we made sure that would stay operational throughout as priority number one.
Automatically link between content within the embeddable if one article links to another (for synced content)
Added keywords icon for articles, so you can now see from the articles management screen what keywords any article has
