We are excited to announce the release of two new features: private pages and page-level sharing permissions. These features will give you precise control over who can edit and view your pages.

Saga is designed for seamless collaboration. By default, your workspace content is shared with all members. However, sometimes certain content needs to be private or only shared with select team members. These new features provide the flexibility to manage your content as needed.

Private Pages


You can set your pages to private by clicking on the Share button in the top right corner and selecting Private access from the dropdown. Only you will be able to open and view the content of your private pages.

Learn more about private pages in this guide.

Page Sharing Permissions


We are releasing sharing permissions for your pages. You can customize the permissions for each workspace user and select between Admin, Editor, Viewer, and No Access.

Learn more about sharing permissions.

How We Designed This

From the very beginning of Saga, our focus has been on the speed and simplicity of the app while connecting all the different parts of your knowledge.

We've completely revamped Saga as part of an 8-month-long project to enhance collaboration and sharing. This is an exciting milestone in our goal to build the knowledge workspace of the future, powered by AI.

In this update we are announcing Saga available in 6 languages, including localization of our website and guides in 🇧🇷 Brazilian 🇵🇹 Portuguese. We've also updated ⚡ Saga AI to use GPT-4o – the fastest and smartest large language model available on the market.

We also quietly upgraded Saga to a new workspace architecture over the last few weeks which brings up to 10x faster loading times. This new architecture will very soon unlock much awaited features such as private pages and sharing pages with guests.

Read below for the full list of improvements and fixes.

🌐 Translations

Software that we use every day should be accessible in the languages that we speak. We're excited to announce that Saga is now available in six languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Brazilian Portuguese.

In addition to the app, the onboarding for new users and the prompts that we use in Saga AI are also localized.

How to change your language preferences:

  • Navigate to Settings
  • Scroll down to Language
  • Choose your preferred language from the dropdown menu

Our website and guides are also fully translated in Brazilian Portuguese and available at: https://saga.so/pt-br

⚡ GPT-4o

Saga AI now uses GPT-4o, which is twice as fast and much smarter than the previous model we used. GPT-4o, developed by OpenAI, is generally the best model on the market right now when it comes to reasoning. We've also released a series of improvements – responses from Saga AI should be generally faster and more reliable. Try it out yourself to see the difference.

How to use Saga AI

You can use Saga AI by highlighting any text and then clicking on the ⚡ button or by pressing  Cmd/Ctrl + J on macOS/Windows respectively.

We have a full guide of how to use Saga AI and how to customize it for your needs.

🏯 New architecture

We quietly upgraded Saga to a new architecture over the last few weeks. This marks an exciting new beginning for Saga.

Our goal is to unlock more granular control over sharing and collaboration while keeping the app as fast as it is — and even make it faster.

Expect long-requested features such as private pages, sharing pages with guests, as well as version history to be released soon.

What this change means now is that even large workspaces will load almost instantly. A workspace with thousands of pages should load in less than a second. The pages and tasks tables load also much faster.

📈 Other improvements and fixes


  • New priority filter in the tasks table lets you filter tasks by priority.
  • Dates in tasks now show the year if the date is not the current year.
  • Tasks now have the search icon displayed in the top right corner.
  • Fixed public pages that didn't open if they contained tasks in the page.
  • Fixed the tasks button in the sidebar that was not visible when users are offline.


  • Performance improvement in the pages and tasks tables — much faster loading in large workspaces.
  • Improved pasting of list items from and to Google Docs, Gmail, and other major note-taking and document editing apps.
  • Headings in callouts are styled better and they can vertically be aligned with the emoji icon of the callout block.
  • Better experience on mobile. We now prevent pull to refresh, so that you don't accidentally refresh the app while scrolling. Menus on mobile are also positioned and styled better.
  • Improved search filter in pages, collections, tasks table. Search now returns correct results when special characters are used.
  • Fixed an issue that added special characters at the end of color highlighted text on Windows.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the editor to stop working when deleting lists inside a callout.
  • Fixed scrolling down to a user mention when a mention is clicked on from a notification.
  • Fixed page mentions that wouldn't update when copy pasted from one page to another.
  • Fixed opening pages and tasks side-by-side that didn't work when users are offline.
  • Fixed the autocomplete menu that did not scroll down when using the keyboard arrow keys.
  • Fixed horizontal scrolling that appeared in the editor on mobile.

Saga AI

  • More reliable answers. You should see better responses when using Saga AI.
  • Improved AI response formatting when two or more users collaborate on a page or a task where content from Saga AI is generated.
  • Fixed an issue where AI returns chunks, not the whole output.
  • Fixed an issue when AI stopped generating when there was an "&" in the response.
  • Fixed an issue where autocomplete didn't return results in the Saga AI commands menu.

File and image uploads

  • Fixed the download button in file blocks that didn't download files when clicked.
  • Fixed an issue with opening attached files that did not always open when accessed from different devices.

Import and export

  • Improved markdown import. Now you can upload folders with markdown files. A new message will show which files have been uploaded and if any files were not supported.
  • Fixed an issue where content inside block quotes would not be imported when importing markdown files with quotes.

More than 30,000 of you have used Saga AI to speed up your work since we launched last April. Thanks to your feedback, we've made great improvement over the past months.

Saga AI is now an even more powerful artificial intelligence assistant, directly inside your notes, docs, and tasks — so you have all the context and stop copy/pasting information across apps.

Improved performance

We now use faster and more reliable models. Responses are more relevant, both when editing existing content and generating new one inside your pages.

Create formatted content: Headings, lists, callouts, and more

Saga AI now understands formatting, so you don't have to do it yourself. Explain precisely in your prompt what you expect and Saga will provide you with the finished document that can include headings, lists, callouts, quotes, and even tables.

For example you can generate new content with the following prompts:

  • Give me 5 types of sushi to order in Japan in a list.
  • Explain quantum theory in 3 paragraphs and add a summary heading above each.

... or select existing one and ask the AI to rewrite it:

  • Rewrite this interview into a customer story with headings on: A) challenge, B) solution. Insert quotes.
  • Extract the most important points in a bullet list.

This is a major time saver for the many of you using Saga AI to draft blog articles, emails, product briefs, internal knowledge base, or any other docs.

Create tables with AI

Saga AI can create, fill in, and edit tables, enabling you to 10x your output with higher volume of data. More structured work with user research, extracting insights or data analysis are just a prompt away.

You can use similar prompts inside Saga AI to create and edit tables:

  • Tell me the pain points of Google Docs users in a table, with a description and level of importance.
  • Аdd 3 more benefits and sort the table by the level of importance.

Tip: Once you create a table with AI, select it and run a command to format it, sort it, add more columns or rows.

Save and reuse your prompts

Hit the star button to save your prompts and commands, so that you can reuse them in a click. You can also customize which commands you see in Settings > Saga AI.

Many ways to work faster and smarter! See the full guide on prompting for more advice.

Customize the AI palette

Next to creating your own prompts you can now reorder or hide them and see only the ones relevant to you. Head to Settings > Saga AI to reorder your prompts and AI commands.

AI history

As you ask Saga AI to improve its responses, it's useful to navigate back and forth between different answers. You can navigate between responses in Saga AI and insert the best one you want inside the editor.

Even more features

You can copy the prompt or the response, stop generation with the esc button, and re-run any prompts.

Our goal is to make the AI work for you, so that you obtain exactly what you need in record time.

New shortcut

Ready to try it? Type Cmd + J (on macOS) or Ctrl + J (on Windows) to use Saga AI. This works both when writing inside the editor and when selecting text in order to rewrite it with AI.

PS: Saga AI is free for now and will be part of the standard plan starting with free monthly quota from next month.

We've improved Saga and Saga AI a lot over the last few months for even more delightful experience. Our focus is to make the fastest and simplest app for your notes, docs, and tasks, so you can focus on doing real work.  

Improved tasks

A lot of collaborative work happens in tasks. We've significantly enhanced tasks and the aggregated task manager in Saga.

Now you can set task priority, due date, and view more metadata such as created and completed date. Due dates are colored automatically in red or green if the due date is in the past or today.

A breadcrumb is visible on top of each task for easier navigation. We've also improved the task context menu that allows you to open a task side by side.  

The Tasks table is now more customizable, with filters and sort options that are automatically saved. A new search input also helps you filter tasks by keyword.

More powerful editor

The editor is where you spend the most time, so we've made it a delightful experience. Headings, lists, text, as well as special blocks like callout have much better spacing and margins.

We've added new styling options for highlight and text color.

Nested bulleted lists have improved styling, for better visual hierarchy.

Attaching files

You can now attach files directly into your pages and tasks, with a simple drag and drop or by inserting a file block from the autocomplete menu.

Fresh new look & feel

Saga's minimalistic look is key to help you focus. We've added more space, shadows, and pleasant colors, as well as improved dark theme contrast and colors.

The sidebar is also enhanced with a dropdown to create a new page, task, or collection, in addition to quick links to navigate across the app.

Speed and performance

Speed is one of our main principles. We fixed a few important issues that affected loading time, workspace speed, and stability when working with large workspaces and using Saga AI.

Improvements and fixes

  • Autocomplete menu now autocompletes tasks, quotes, code, and dates.
  • Improved pasting and handling of tables.
  • Loom videos can be embedded inside pages.
  • Much faster loading time when having multiple workspaces or when extensively using Saga AI.
  • New dropdown to create a new page, task, or collection, in addition to quick links to navigate across the app.
  • New undo button in pages and tasks that will undo the last changes in the editor.
  • No frequent reloading after going offline or switching wifi. The message "Connection was lost" is now happily gone!
  • Selecting and deleting a table inside the editor now asks for confirmation before being deleted.
  • The table of contents has increased spacing between headings for improved readibility.
  • The code block now supports plain text.
  • Workspace export now includes images in the export folder.

Saga AI

We have some exciting news: Saga AI is now available in beta!

With Saga AI, you can easily create new content, brainstorm ideas, translate, check grammar, and rewrite text in just a few clicks. Access the power of ChatGPT directly in your workspace to make your day-to-day work more efficient.

See how it works in this video (1 min):

How Does it Work?

Access Saga AI in two ways:

  • Type @ or /  in the editor and click on Ask AI.
  • Select any text and click on Saga AI for more commands.

What Can You Do with Saga AI?

Here are 4 ways to make your day-to-day more efficient:

1. Get a first draft of your email, blog post, or cover letter.

2. Summarize and extract insights from your text.

3. Translate, change tone, or fix grammar.

4. Ask complex questions and augment your knowledge.

Learn more about use cases, prompting, and FAQs in our guides.

What's Next?

For the upcoming weeks, Saga AI will remain free to use. After that, it will be incorporated into our Standard plan, which offers 2,000 AI generated words for each workspace user.

We're a small team developing Saga. We hope you enjoy Saga AI and if you like it, feel free to spread the word around you or share one of our Tweets or posts on LinkedIn.

We're already working on the next version — tell us what you think and would like to see next by replying to this email or on Discord!

As part of this December release, we've got some early presents for you: collapsible lists, one of the most upvoted feature requests, and an integration with Linear to help product teams track and solve issues directly in Saga. We've also expanded search in Saga to help you find results from across your tool stack — and work more efficiently.

Psst: Here's a short survey to help us improve Saga for you. Big thanks to all of you who have already filled it out!

Collapsible Lists

You can now keep your pages organized by using collapsible lists. Collapse and expand any bulleted list to hide or show nested items.

To collapse a list, hover over the bullet point of the item. When you do, the bulleted point will turn into triangle ▼. Click on the triangle to collapse the list. The bullet point will be now replaced by a right-pointing triangle ▶. Then, just click on the right-pointing triangle ▶ to expand it.

Learn more about collapsible lists.

Linear Integration

The integration with Linear is now live to help product, software, and development teams collaborate on issue tracking directly from their work environment.

You can mention an issue inside pages and tasks by inserting a Linear block or by simply pasting a Linear link in the editor. Search in Saga also includes results from your issue board. Check the next section for more details.

We're particularly excited about this because we actually use Linear internally, so this integration enables us to keep planning docs, feature requirements, and user feedback well knitted with our issue board.

Learn more about the Linear integration.

Search Across Your Tools

To make your day-to-day work more efficient, you can now search across Google Drive and Linear directly from the main search bar in Saga. This nicely complements the ability to edit your Google Drive files directly in Saga, which we released in September. Saga is now an even better all-in-one tool for connecting your knowledge.

This is a unique feature compared to alternative software tools for docs and notes, and one we're looking to expand. What other tools should we integrate next? Let us know in the feedback board!

Improvements to the Google Drive Integration

Apart from displaying Google Drive files in the search menu, we've also added a new block in the autocomplete menu that will help you insert Google Drive files faster.

Similar to the Linear integration, pasting a Google Drive link inside Saga will suggest you to convert the link to an inline Google Drive mention. Hover mentions with your cursor to see a preview of your files similar to how Saga page links and autolinks are previewed.

Learn more about the Google Drive integration.

Fixes and Improvements

Desktop app

  • You can now switch between workspaces in the desktop app with a shortcut (⌘ + 1, 2, 3 on macOS and Ctrl + 1, 2, 3 on Windows).
  • Added a new page shortcut. Press ⌘/Ctrl + N to create a new page.
  • Added tooltips to to the navigation arrows. You can go back with ⌘/Ctrl + [ and go forward with ⌘/Ctrl + ].
  • Fixed an issue where page links will open in a new window in the app.
  • Fixed back/forward arrows being displayed on the right side of the app.
  • Fixed opening links from notifications. Now links will open in the app instead of in the browser.


  • You can now add break lines in text blocks, lists, quotes, and callouts. Press Shift + Enter when inside a block to add a break line.
  • Collections in the collection dropdown menu are now sorted by created date (newest on top). We also display the emoji icon in the dropdown if a collection has one.
  • Fixed an issue that would not update a page title when text is pasted inside the title.
  • Fixed an issue that would make the app unresponsive when moving or deleting text from a page when the search results are displayed to the side.
  • Fixed an issue that would make the app unresponsive when selecting all content of a page or a task and then deleting it.


  • Tasks now open in full width instead of side by side. You can still open them side by side by using Shift + Click.
  • Added a Copy Link button in the Share menu, so that links to pages can be copied and shared faster.
  • Collections table context menu now includes option to add and remove collections from pinned items.
  • The search panel on the right side of the app can be resized.
  • Results in the search panel, references panel, and autocomplete menu are now sorted by most recent edited pages or tasks by default.

What's Next?

We're planning to tackle some big tasks next year that include more integrations, page-level permissions, version history, offline mode, and mobile apps. We want to keep Saga great for personal use and make it even more productive for collaborating with friends and colleagues.

We wish you happy holidays and a wonderful start of the new year!

As your to-do lists are likely getting longer these days, we're back this month with a lot of improvements to help you get more done faster with Saga. This includes easier navigation, enhanced editor and task management, and a new feedback board.

We took time to fasten the overall performance, improve the app's stability, and prepare for more extensive features ahead.

Navigating back and forth in the desktop app

This has been one of the most requested features since we launched the desktop app in July. You can now go back and forth in Saga by using the arrow icons in the top left corner. You can also use the keyboard shortcuts if that's easier for you:

  • Cmd + [  and Cmd + ] on macOS
  • Ctrl + [ and Ctrl + ] on Windows

Enhanced editor & dates

It's now easier and faster to add dates across your content — one step further to offload your busy brain. You can write @today or @next Monday, enter a specific date, or now also type @Date to pick from the calendar in one click.

It's now also possible to copy a link to a specific block in a page. Click on the draggable element on the left side of a link and then select "Copy Link". Saga will automatically scroll to the position of this block when you click on that block link.

We've also pushed more than two dozen fixes and improvements to the page editor that bring more stability and speed, improved indentation, copy and paste, drag and drop, and text selection.

More improvements to tasks

As tasks have already been adopted by many of you, we've added a due date option to help you better plan your days and weeks. There is also a new context menu in tasks that will help you easily open a task to the side or in full width.

We've also improved the aggregated table and added additional space to display titles. We are still improving the experience of this feature and experimenting with the way how tasks are opened (side by side or as a full page).

New feedback widget

Most new features and improvements come from your requests and feedback — so thank you!

To streamline things, we've implemented a feedback board where sharing your feedback is even easier. You can access it while logged in to your Saga account and you will be notified when there are updates to your requests.

We are hiring

Lastly, we're looking for a founding engineer to join the team. So if that's you or if you know someone really excited about the future of knowledge management, we're looking forward to hearing from you!

Today, we’re introducing Saga’s integration with Google Drive. You can now mention files directly in Saga, open them side-by-side, or search for them in the search menu. This is our first step toward helping you connect workflows and information between different tools effortlessly.

We're also releasing improvements to the newly released task management, an option to open pages in full width, new keyboard shortcuts, new turn into menu and more. Scroll down for the full details.

Work with Google Drive files in Saga

If you have a Google account for personal use or work, you can now open, search, and mention files directly in Saga. Head to Settings > Integrations > Google Drive to enable the Google Drive integration.

Learn more in our guides.

Mentioning files in pages

Type @ or / to open the autocomplete menu. You can now autocomplete files from your Google Drive. Hit Enter to create a mention to that file inside a page.

Open Google Drive files side by side or in a full page

Clicking on a file mentioned inside a page will open it in full width directly in Saga. You can also hold Shift, then click on the file to open it side by side. You can always go back to your previous page in Saga or open the file in a new tab in your browser.

Search for your files from the search menu

You can now search for files and open them directly from the search menu in Saga. Click on any of the files to open them.

Access rights

This integration is linked to your Google account and works across all workspaces you are part of. Once enabled, you can mention and search for your files in all your workspaces.

Only you can search through your Google Drive files. Also, if you mention a Google Drive file inside a page, only you and the people who have permission to view or edit the file will be able to open it.

Turn into menu

Now, the turn into menu is triggered when you click on the handlebar on the left side of a block. This helps you quickly change the block type. For example, you can change a block from text to a heading in just two clicks.

Search results

Now, search results are displayed in a side pane on the right side of the screen and don’t interfere with the References panel inside a page. We’ve also changed this to improve readability when opening two pages side by side.

Workspace icon color

You can now customize the color of your workspace icon.

Improvements to the newly released Tasks

  • Templates can be now applied to tasks.
  • You can edit a task title after creating it — no need to open the task to edit its title.
  • Tasks now open side by side when you click on them.You can create a new task easily by clicking on the + button below an existing task.
  • You can also create a new task by typing Shift + Enter while editing an existing task.
  • You can now filter tasks in the Tasks view by assignee.
  • A new column in the Tasks view displays where a task has been referenced.
  • There is a new option to select text and convert it to a task from the turn-into menu.
  • The status of tasks (Done / Not done) is visible in the Search modal.

Keyboard shortcuts

  • Cmd + S on macOS or Ctrl + S on Windows closes and opens the left sidebar
  • Cmd + Shift + K on macOS or Ctrl + Shift + K on Windows will create a new page from text selection

Page links and autolinks look and feel

We made some changes to how autolinks and page links are displayed. Autolinks now have a dashed underline, while page links have a solid underline and display the page icon or emoji. There is also a new option to remove the page icon from all page links.

Pages in full width

We’ve implemented a new page setting to open pages in full width.

July 16, 2022

Task Management

Many of you requested an easier way to integrate notes and tasks in one place and a centralized view of tasks across pages.

This was also a need emerging in our team. As we were creating a lot of checklists — from gathering feedback to big and small ideas for improvements — we started to lose track of them.

In the same way, as autolinking helps you connect the dots with less effort, the tasks manager helps you easily keep an overview of your tasks. Now, you will find them all in one central space. And because we don't want to disturb your habits, the former checklists will remain in place.

Two weeks ago, we started this as a small experiment, and after great feedback from many of you on Discord and Slack, we're excited to release this to everyone.

Notes and tasks in one place

This new feature makes integrating tasks within your notes and docs easy. You can create tasks across pages, assign them to your colleagues, and manage them from one place. You don't have to switch between different notes and project management apps.

How it works

  • To create a task, type @ or / followed by a title and then click on Create. Alternatively, select any text or block in a page and turn it into a task by using the Turn into menu.
  • Clicking on a task will open it side by side. Now you can add more details, add an assignee, or insert text, lists, or images. In this regard, tasks behave very similarly to pages. You can edit their content, mention them, and see where they are referenced across your workspace.
  • Tasks are independent of the page they were created in. You can mention the same task in multiple pages. You can even mention tasks inside other tasks.
  • Click on the Tasks tab in the sidebar to see an aggregated view of all tasks across your workspace.

What's next?

We look forward to your feedback on Discord or Slack or over email to improve tasks for you and your team! Also, stay tuned for more updates about integrations and extensions very soon.

Today, we're launching a new way to help you share your amazing work with the world! You can now easily publish individual Saga pages to the public web for anyone to see.

You can also directly access Saga on your desktop with the newly-available apps for macOS and Windows. We've also worked on many new usability and performance updates to make Saga even better — including a shiny new way to link pages.

Publish Pages to the Web With One Click

From the very beginning, we made workspaces in Saga shareable. So you can easily publish your whole workspaces for anyone you'd like to share knowledge with — be it wikis, a learning resource, or any other working document.

We're making this even more accessible with more control for sharing individual pages, which will help you publicize your content far and wide. This means you can keep your workspace private and publish only one or several pages for the world to see!

To publish a single page, click on the Share button in the top right corner. Learn more about Page Sharing.

Desktop Apps for Extra Convenience

As one of our most requested features, we're excited to release desktop apps for macOS and Windows. You can now have a dedicated desktop icon for Saga, making it easier to access from anywhere while enabling you to focus more once you're in.

Download Saga for macOS and Windows.

Link Pages With the @ Menu

Autolinking, Saga's signature feature, enables you to discover connections you haven't even thought about. Now, you can also decide to refer to specific pages when writing your content — and in that case, manually insert links to pages.

To add a Page Link, type @ to open the autocomplete menu, then select the page you would like to link. Like autolinks, page links have a preview when you hover over them. It's also easy to convert an autolink to a page link. Learn more about Page Links.

What's New in Beta?

We're working on two exciting features — aggregated tasks view and a Google Drive integration. We are testing this with individual users and teams, and we'd love to hear your thoughts! Join our communities on Discord and Slack to help us shape this together.

Task Aggregation (Beta)

With task aggregation, you can integrate your tasks within your notes and docs. For example, you can create tasks across different pages in Saga, assign them to your colleagues, and manage all of them from one place.

Google Drive Integration (Beta)

As part of our effort to organize and link work across different tools, we've developed an integration with Google Drive. With this, you'll be able to mention and link your Google Drive files inside pages, search your Drive directly from the app, and open any file within Saga in full screen or side by side.

Learn more about the Google Drive Integration in Saga.

Other Fixes and Improvements

We've made a series of improvements as part of a major usability update that we'll be rolling out in the following weeks:

  • Newly improved sidebar — The Pages and Collections tabs now open full width inside the app.
  • Advanced search with AND / OR — You can use multiple terms in the search menu by including AND or OR in your search query. Learn more.
  • Auto Mode Theme — We've added an extra Appearance setting that detects and launches Saga in the theme of your OS.
  • Folder / Tag switcher in Collections — If you have collections with sub-collections, you can now show or hide all pages that are part of those subcollections. Learn more.
  • Export workspace as JSON — New option to export your whole workspace in the JSON format.
  • Autolinks in the right sidebar now don't show a page preview on hover.
  • 'We removed automatic addition of closing brackets when typing ',",(,[,{.

Collaboration in Saga

Today, we're introducing collaboration in Saga. You can now invite, collaborate, and stay in sync with your teammates, colleagues, and friends — to share and organize your knowledge. Collaboration is free while we are still in beta and will always be free for up to 3 editors. We're also introducing our pricing plans, including a free plan for personal use and a future paid tier for teams with more than 3 editors in a workspace.

Fostering collaboration in Saga has been our priority from the beginning. In a remote-first world, our mission is to help individuals and teams learn from each other and get things done faster. In addition, collaboration multiplies the usefulness of our most unique feature, autolinking, and makes knowledge discovery even more valuable.

Here's what else you'll see in the app:

Real-Time Editing

Collaboration in Saga happens in real-time. You can see changes instantly to always stay in sync. Working together feels natural, and you can work with as many people as you want in the same workspace.

Mentioning Team Members

You can now mention team members inside your pages and use this to assign people to tasks or notify them about important updates.

See Where Others Are

We are introducing a new way to discover what your team is up to. Team members in the same workspace can view publicly shared documents their colleagues are editing. Open the Search bar in the app to see what your colleagues are working on and when it’s good for you to jump in.


It's now easy to receive notifications about important updates in your workspace. For Example, you can see notifications about who joined your workspace or if anyone mentioned you.

User Permissions

Invite other members to your workspace as owners, editors, or viewers only.

What's Next?

Collaboration is only the first step toward making teamwork more efficient in Saga. We'll continue improving the application and make it more valuable for teams by improving notifications and implementing comments. We're also committed to working on integrating other apps in Saga and helping you connect the dots.

We hope you'll check out the collaborative version of Saga, and if you do, let us know what you think. If you have any feature requests, we'd love to hear them! Feel free to share with us on Twitter or the Saga Discord and Slack servers.

5 New Blocks

Today we are releasing five new blocks to help you organize and make sense of your knowledge even better. You can now structure your content in tables, add dates to your tasks and pages, highlight important paragraphs with a callout or separate it with a divider.

In addition, we've added a new math equations block and a bunch of improvements, including a spellchecker setting, the ability to mention a collection inside a page, and a way to sign in with a Google account.

View feature demos also on Twitter!

🏓  Tables

Organize your knowledge in the format you need. Tables in Saga are flexible, and you can add simple text as well as headings, lists, images, dates, live blocks, and any other type of supported content. Type @table in the editor to get started.

⚡ Improvements

This week we are releasing a bunch of exciting features to help you improve your personal and work-related workflows. With Page Templates, you can start a meeting, daily note, or project plan from a pre-defined template in one click. 

We’re also releasing two new block types – embeds and link previews – to help you get more context around your work. Link previews now show up automatically when pasting a website URL to provide a catchy preview of the page with images and additional text. With embeds, you can quickly add videos and more than 10 types of online content directly into your Saga pages for your teammates to discover. Scroll down for more details and the full list of services that are supported.

🔲  Start Faster with Templates

Meeting notes, specs, plans, or even daily notes often contain the same structure. It’s now easier and faster to start from your own templates or use any of the predefined ones we’ve added to the templates gallery.

To create a template or explore the templates gallery, hover over the New Page button in the left sidebar, click on the window icon and then select Explore Templates

You can turn any existing page into a template and pre-define its collections and page icon.

Learn more about how to use templates in our Help Center.

🖼  Beautiful Links With More Context

With Link Previews, you can turn any website link into a beautiful-looking block inside your pages. This provides a richer context to your note and makes it easier to scan through.

Simply paste a website URL in the editor and click on Add Preview from the dropdown menu. Saga will automatically pull additional information from that website including logo, image, title, subtitle, and add it to the page for you.

Learn more about Link Previews.

🎥  Embed Videos

Add videos to your pages and watch them directly there. You can resize them and even watch them side by side with another page opened at the same time.

To add a video embed, simply paste a video link inside the editor and click on Add Embed from the drop-down menu. Supported platforms include YouTube, Vimeo, and DailyMotion. We will be adding more supported services in the future.

Learn more about how to use video embeds.

🖥️  Bring Content From Other Apps

We are supporting embeds from the following applications: Figma, Spotify, SoundCloud, Codepen, Codesandbox, Replit, GIPHY, Prezi Video, and TED.com.

We've rebuilt large parts of Saga, completely revamped the text editor to improve performance, and added exciting new features such as live blocks, a dark theme, side by side mode, a quick edit mode, text highlighting, and more.

You can view all the feature demos also on Twitter!

🔗  Live Blocks

Live Blocks help you keep your content up to date across different pages in a workspace.  

Select any block and click on it to create a live block of it in another page. 

When you change the initial source, all live blocks created from it will change as well. This is particularly useful when summarizing content from multiple pages or when copying important content from one page to another. Live blocks are a great way to minimize duplicate content and to keep relevant information across your workspace up-to-date.

You can create live blocks in four different ways:

  • Select any block and click on the link button in the hovering toolbar. 

  • When you copy content from one page and paste it in another, Saga will suggest pasting the content as text or to create a Live Block from the pasted content.

  • Drag and drop any reference from the Reference Panel to a page to create a live block.

  • You can also create a live block of a whole page by using the autocomplete menu.

Once a live block is created, all changes will be synced in real-time. You can even create multiple live blocks from the same source block. When you do this, you’ll see a number indicator next to the initial block from which you can navigate to every live block created from it.

🌑  Dark Theme

One of the most requested features has arrived! You can turn the Dark theme on and off from the menu next to your workspace title.

✏️  Quick Edit Mode

Have you ever wanted to quickly edit a page without opening it? Simply hover over a page link and press the pen icon to quickly edit the page. When you’re done, press the X button or Esc to close quick edit mode.

✌️  Work on Two Pages Side by Side

Saga now supports opening two pages right next to each other. To open two pages side by side, simply:

  • click on the Open Side by side button, or
  • hold Shift while clicking on a page link.

🦊  Emoji Icons

We've added a small styling improvement that will add a bit more uniqueness to your workspace. You can now add an emoji icon to your pages and collections. Open any page and click on the icon button above the page title to select an emoji.

🟨  Text Highlighting

Select any text and click on the color picker in the hovering toolbar to highlight the selected text.

📄  Turn Any Text Selection Into a Page

Now you can select any text in the editor and turn that into a new page. Click on the Turn into option in the hovering toolbar and select Page.

➡️  Move Selected Text to a Page

After selecting text, now you can also move it to another page.
