Summer 2016 Newsletter


Welcome to the Summer 2016 newsletter!

We have been busy little bees all Spring and are happy to tell you about our latest news.  We will share with you the latest on team collaboration in Octopus, new custom notifications and even more.



Follow us on LinkedIn

Whether it is to follow the company or our discussions, you are invited to join us on LinkedIn. Above all, you are invited to participate in our exchanges about different subjects and give us your feedback, share ideas and work with us to improve Octopus.

All discussions related to Octopus and its use are welcome in this group. Feel free to start specific discussions in your field of business (private, education, health) or to your service (IT, Biomedical, Building maintenance, Human Resources, Supply chain, etc.).
For technical support on the product, we invite you to communicate with the support team directly. Consult the Technical support page to find out the different ways available to communicate with them. 


For a third year in a row, Octopus is proud to participate in the 48 hour ride!

The event that will take place from September 16 to 18 2016 in Montreal at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve helps raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation.

Your support will allow children whose health is seriously threatened to achieve their greatest wish. The magic of a wish allows the child to face his illness through a daily struggle.

You can make an online donation or write a message of encouragement to the team on the Octopus team's page. All donations are welcome, regardless of the amount. A receipt will be issued for donations of 20.00$ or more.

Thank you for your encouragement!




In order to assist you in optimizing the flow of your requests, the ability to assign a task to another team is coming soon.

Your feedback is important!

We have received feedbacks about the importance of an SR being accessible to the collaborating team. This improvement will be part of the feature before the official launch of the solution.

Custom notifications

It is now possible to receive personalized notifications based on an Octopus list. 

Two situations can trigger the notifications from a list: 

  • A new element was added to the list. 
  • A value from the list has been modified.

This notification is based on the columns present in the list.

For more details, see the Custom notifications Wiki page.
