August 2021 — v1.118 Improved Permissions

Create, configure, and set granular permissions with roles.

As teams scale and grow, there's often a need to control who can see and change what. We just shipped the first version of our permissions refactor: the ability to create, configure, and assign roles to anyone on your team. In Quill, go to Settings → [Team] → Members to start creating and configuring roles!
