Hello and welcome to 2019! At MangoApps, we’ve spent the past few weeks reflecting on everything we were able to accomplish last year. Our team worked really hard in 2018 to innovate, adapt, and make MangoApps the best collaboration and communication program available. We made great strides last year and loved all of the feedback we received from our customers. Thanks to their input were able to create all kinds of outstanding new features and upgrades. In the spirit of the new year, we wanted to look back over our best accomplishments of 2018, but it ended up being too long for just one post! We’re excited to dedicate two posts to the progress of last year. Here is part one of the top 50 MangoApps features from 2018.
