View meetings in your Inbox by week

Glance at your week in meetings and easily prepare by setting agendas. Morning meetings are now displayed at the top of your list and afternoon meetings at the bottom (similar to calendar scheduling apps).

The new date picker allows you to easily jump to another week with the new calendar dropdown. Snap to current week allows you to get back to this week in one click.


Apologies to all the fans of the old Slack logo, unfortunately it has now been updated in Hugo to reflect Slack’s brand refresh (we’re sad too).

Open for beta testing

Real-time Collaboration

Multiple teammates can join the same meeting note and collaborate together, similar to the experience in Google Docs. We are now ready to enable for teams that are interested in being part of our phase 2 public beta. Please email josh@hugo.team to request access and be sure to share your feedback!

Bug fixes

  • More helpful error modals - if an error is being triggered by a 3rd party integration, we will notify you of the responsible app and point you to a support page
  • Fixed a bug that broke the emoji picker when creating agenda/note templates
  • Fixed a bug where some tooltips would not hide for Safari users
  • Fixed a bug where hyperlinks would not open in a new tab when clicked

Slack updates

You can now receive notifications in Slack if you are mentioned in an agenda or note comment

Team Archive is now Team Notes (finally!)

Open for beta testing

Inbox Rules

We have introduced a new feature to help you keep your Inbox clean and reduce irrelevant notifications. You can now build your own rules to hide meetings from your Inbox. Even better, notifications for those meetings will also be muted! This should provide a very extensible solution for you to take control over your Inbox, building rules based on the following triggers

  • Meeting type - if the event is all-day or recurring
  • Meeting title - if a meeting has a particular title
  • Attendance status - if you mark a meeting as accepted/rejected/maybe
  • Attendee count - number of people attending a meeting
  • Attendee email - email addresses of meeting attendees
  • Attendee type - if the attendees are internal or external

This feature has replaced an older one: auto-archive/auto-ignore recurring meetings. For those who use this feature, we have created Inbox rules for these meetings in your account. You can edit/delete them here as needed.

Benefits to rules vs auto-archive/delete

  • Recurring meetings are no longer a constraint, you can build rules for any type of meeting
  • Rules are at the user-level, so you can build rules to hide meetings from your Hugo Inbox without impacting other teammates

Agenda Diffs

When updates are made to an existing agenda, those changes will now be displayed to other teammates attending the meeting. When text is added/removed from the agenda relative to the previous version, Hugo will highlight those changes in the email notification

Revamped Support Center

We have increased our investment in support documentation for everyone. Visit support.hugo.team for everything from best practices when onboarding your team through to troubleshooting an integration setup. More documentation is scheduled each week, so if there is something missing that you would like to see please share your feedback here.

  • Enhancements to app caching so that it is now harder for your browser to store an outdated version of Hugo (which causes a lot of annoying conflict errors)
  • Fixed a bug related to hyperlink syntax
  • Fixed a bug that caused @mention chips to display incorrectly in note comments
  • Fixed a bug that prevented search terms from matching against the last name of a contact
  • Fixed a bug that prevented teams with >100 slack channels from seeing all of their channels in Hugo
  • Fixed a bug that incorrectly rendered note lists after they were saved

Security enhancements

  • Your Data has been encrypted, when in transit, since day one. This means that when notes are sent from your device to Hugo, the content is protected against malicious interception.
  • Now your data is encrypted when at rest too. Meaning that even if our security is breached, bad actors will not be able to decipher personally identifiable information, along with the notes and associated data entered during the course using Hugo.

Performance improvements for 3rd-party integrations

  • When taking note actions such as creating a Jira ticket, syncing a note to Salesforce or assigning a task in Asana, we have made the following enhancements
  • If your account has a high volume of data and a third party is slow to return results (such as searching for a Jira project or Trello card), Hugo will notify you when search results are returned, or if no results are returned.
  • We have worked on speeding up the performance of searching for results from a 3rd party integration.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug where some note formatting was displayed differently after saving
  • Fixed a bug where hyperlinks were not able to be applied to text in a note
  • Fixed a bug where the Clear formatting button was not working properly
