71 new integrations across 10 apps, including Microsoft Teams, Paddle, Attio, ConvertKit, Google Contacts, Google Drive, HubSpot, Pipedrive, Quickbooks Online, Webflow and Zoom

As usual, we shipped many new integrations this past month, including highly requested apps like Microsoft Teams and ConvertKit. We also launched a whole bunch of core product improvements over the past weeks, and I wanted to highlight a couple of them:

Firstly, the ability to merge/rejoin Paths. We've been hearing so often from customers that they wanted to continue adding steps to the “common path” after one or more conditional steps. We made it straightforward to do so, and it’s even possible to chain multiple Paths after each other for your more complex playbooks. It has already been a game changer for our own automation needs! Learn how to use them here.

You can now continue adding steps (or even new Paths) after a Paths block

Second, we made tons of improvements around automated file uploads and downloads across apps. One of my favorite recent improvements is that you can now magically export a Google Doc/Sheet/Slide to another file format (like PDF or DOCX) without the need for an explicit ‘Export’ step.

You simply pick the desired format directly within the integration that you’re using, for example in the attachment field of an email (see gif below). Paired together with our revamped ‘Copy template & replace {{placeholders}}’ automation (which now supports replacing images!), this enables a whole spectrum of use cases. Learn more here.

Exporting a Google Doc/Sheet/Slide to another file format like PDF is now very easy in Relay
