Since we first started GitBook in 2014, we’ve helped thousands of teams document their knowledge and create amazing public docs for their users. It’s always been our goal to be your go-to platform for creating and collaborating on amazing documentation. Now we’re taking that even further, with ways to help you to bring all your technical knowledge into one place.

Public documentation has always been at the heart of GitBook — and still is! But recently we’ve been using our experience in that area to improve how teams handle internal information, too. The features and integrations we’re releasing today expand on that, with tools built specifically to help technical teams to document, improve, discover and publish internal knowledge.

One thing that hasn’t changed very much since 2014, however, is our brand 👀 So we thought this huge launch was the perfect place to spruce things up a little. Our design team has been hard at work on this, and we hope you love it as much as we do.

There’s a lot more to talk about, so lets dive in.

An all new design

The first thing you’ll notice when you open GitBook today is a new look and feel. Our design and engineering teams worked closely to refresh our brand — and then reflect it in user interface to make it feel cleaner and more modern.

The new sidebar puts useful tools — including our new features — at your fingertips, with new icons and interface elements making it easier to find what you need fast. While we refreshed the UI, the teams worked hard to improve consistency across the app. They also fixed some visual and improved performance after you first load a space. Which means you’ll likely notice things are faster and more consistent across the board.

New integrations to capture knowledge

Alongside a streamlined design, we’re also shipping two new integrations today that make it easier than ever for you and your team to add useful and up-to-date information to your knowledge base.

Firstly, we’ve improved our Slack integration with new beta features we think you’ll love. Summon our Slack bot in a message thread and it’ll extract the essential information and summarize it in your knowledge base, so you and your team can find and use it later.

Plus, it’s trained on your docs. So you can ask technical questions right in Slack and get answers summarized from your organizations documentation in seconds.

We’re also launching a new VS Code integration in alpha. With it, you can create documentation while you code — using your voice. All you need to do is narrate a quick guide while you work. GitBook will combine your actions and voiceover into documentation — with embedded code blocks — right in your knowledge base. And just like in Slack, you can also access useful docs right in VS Code, just by asking a question.

Introducing snippets

These integrations make it easier than ever for everyone to add their expertise to your knowledge base. GitBook AI takes the unstructured information from those Slack threads or VS Code tutorials, extracts the important parts, then creates a snippet — a structured page that’s easy to read and digest.

GitBook will automatically add and index these snippets in your knowledge base, so your whole team can find and reference them easily. And when you ask GitBook AI a question related to the snippet, it’ll provide you with the most up-to-date information that you captured, alongside any other relevant data from the rest of your knowledge base.

Snippets are still in beta, but we think they’re going to be super powerful when it comes to filling gaps in your knowledge base. Especially when it comes to capturing knowledge that might otherwise have been lost because of complicated or time-consuming documentation workflows.

Get smart content insights

The final part of this release is a big improvement to our insights. And just like the other features we’ve talked about above, it’s all about helping you maintain and improve your documentation so it’s as useful and up-to-date as possible.

Insights now live on their own page that you can access right from the sidebar. There, you can instantly identify pages or sections that feature contradictory information, or duplicated content. So you can find outdated pages that need your attention, and quickly add updated knowledge.

This new Insights page is also a great place to check on the performance of your public content. You can quickly see user ratings for each page, so you can focus on improving the pages that aren’t getting great feedback. And with search insights, you can see what people are looking for the most.

We have more on our roadmap

We’re so excited to finally share these updates with you — our teams have been working hard on them for a while now.

But we have so much more to come! From plans for new integrations that help you bring in knowledge from more third-party apps, to improvements to our beta features. Stay tuned — we’re actively working on these things right now.

For now, enjoy using the new features — we can’t wait to hear what you think!
