Upstream Events — Week of 11/16
Every week on Monday we send out an email to the Upstream user-base with upcoming events.
We’ve decided to also make a blog post out of it so others can see what is coming up. Below is the email.
We have an action pack week with tons of Events and Office Hours. We also have a big new release with the ability to have split screen with guest speakers. You’ll be able to see both the host and the guest speaker at the same time. There are three new options — picture in picture, horizontal and vertical. We also added the ability to choose your audio output and go audio-only for your matching if your video quality isn’t faring well. Make sure to update to the latest App Store version (#306 if you look at your settings at the bottom of the screen).
As I mentioned last week, we are getting too big to use my personal email to send the Events email every Monday. We have begun using an email provider. I’ll include the below request for the next few weeks.
A quick request: to ensure that you receive these event emails, please add firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org to your Contacts list. If this email landed in your Gmail Promotions tab, drag it to the Primary tab (on mobile, select Change Label via the three dots on the top right). Thank you!
