πŸ“£ #GregTeam comin’ at ya with a new #GregUpdate! πŸ“£

Meet the new Tips & Guides:

πŸ“š Learn all about your plant: we’ve got propagation tips, whether it’s safe for pets, its fave pot type and all sorts of other info

🧠 Smart tips from Greg to help catch issues before they show up. Get a heads up if your plant is in the right pot, what to expect as the seasons change, and more!

Just like all your plants, spring has sprung and Greg is growing! The #GregTeam is working hard on even more upgrades that are coming in the next few weeks.

Check the Apple App Store for your new update now, and coming to Android next week!
Cant wait to see what everyone thinks of the new guides!!! Good and bad of course ☺️.

Where are my question answerers?

Cc @KikiGoldblatt @sarahsalith @Gordo @kscape @AwesomePlants @Shaubplantshack @vvvelo @jcPlantProper
@sarahsalith did you see the new community tag πŸ‘€gonna try and make it recurring
Yes please! And you will most DEFINITELY see me answering questions for #TechTeamTuesday! I’m tech savvy and very helpful! Can’t wait! πŸ€—πŸͺ΄πŸ’•
@RJG yes- I saw them. I'm still poking around. (:
All my plants cause a lot of crashing so sometimes I have to put the phone down and walk away for a bit. 🀣
Can’t wait until I can open links in the app!!! πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€
@RJG so far so good except for editing a comment which I know will be worked out. Community tag woohoo.
@RJG it'd be cool to see more than one of the communities, though.
@sarahsalith lol and let it cool off? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@sarahsalith yah we need to get the communities more accessible than just scrolling for sure. Good idea!!
@RJG I'M the one who has to COOL off! I go to do something and CRASH! I take a breath, pull it back up, water a plant and CRASH! 🀣 I should change my username to @crashdummy
So excited to test them out!!!
yes please let us know @BJoyce !!
@Megan we can stop answering all the questions now and just tell people to go to their Greg guides !
@RJG Still looking through it, but loving it so far. Nice to have all the info in Greg now (I used to cheat on Greg and use other apps for more info lol). I did see a typo. Will provide more feedback once I finish looking through it all.
@AwesomePlants Fixed! Thanks for the heads up πŸ”
@AwesomePlants were not using the other apps anymore πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
@RJG this is exciting!
@Sassylimey android next week!
@MeganO πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€
Loving the new features! Especially seeing if a plant is safe for my gremlins. Definitely joining #TechTeamTuesday to follow too πŸ‘€
Check this out @BoozyBillsBabe @Curry
Can't wait #gregupdate and @RJG, thank you all on the #gregteam πŸ’ž
@babyfiretiger13 have you noticed our new guides? They may help even more w your new #FiddleLeafFig
@RJG I did not see the new community tag! 😲
@RJG loving the guides!
Well it's brand new @Shaubplantshack πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #TechTeamTuesday
So, @RJG - @jcPlantProper and I were chatting the other day- we think it would be a great addition to the Greg app if we could get notification for our plants that we accidentally left outside ... you know, like an alarm to go off before the plant gets burned up! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

AND! I while y'all are working on the anti-burn alarm and the "Yo it rained" button and #SmellAPlant idea - think that Greg should add a little tracking device like a tile (but you can call them a Leaf) and when I'm looking all over for the plant I'm supposed to water, I can ping it, like I do when I need to find a kiddo's device! πŸ˜†
@sarahsalith I think Janai did a #GregFeedback about this but these are all good ideas!!
@RJG I hope you know I'm mostly joking about my personal problems of losing plants and forgetting them outside. 🀣
@sarahsalith sure! But we've legit talked about having something like "leaf" but that's a ways down the roadπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ maybe not to ring for you to find it but definitely to scan so you don't have to find it in your oasis
@RJG AND Greg swag. I need a T-shirt and a ball cap (not a truckers cap) and Greg gift cards for my people. OH! And a way to get another mug when my family finally breaks mine. It's always my favorite mug that hits the ground. πŸ˜‰ I'm such a fan!
@sarahsalith yesss haha there’s so much potential this app has. Some things more priority than others according to the masses πŸ˜‚ but Greg merch is such a good way to advertise too! Can you imagine, plant tags with our plant names saying β€œGreg saved my plant” or SOMETHING like that. πŸ˜‚
YES!!! @jcPlantProper I love that!! A bumper sticker that says οΏΌthat with a QR code to scan that takes them to the Greg app! I'm a geek, I scanned the bumper stickers when I see the QR codes. So many of them are RickrollsοΏΌοΏΌ.
@sarahsalith hehe yesss
@RJG yes I did!! Everything looks so great and I’m sure will be helpful for all of us 😊
Since the updates are rolling out, may I suggest something? #GregFeedback

What about a β€œhistory of activity” or an option for us to view our activity history? I know we have the notification bell page, but that only notifies you when someone interacts with your post, comment, etc.

Having a β€œhistory of activity” would more-so show your actual, live activity. For example, being able to go back to the post you made, instead of having to scroll on the homepage, looking for your post.

Another example; being able to go back to a post you have previously commented on, instead of having to either look for the post on the home page, or hope that someone interacts with your comment, to be able to go back to the post.

The more I comment and help people with questions they have, the more complicated it is to keep track of who exactly needs help and needs an answer to their question.
#GregTeam @Kiersten @RJG

Thanks for all that you do for us plant addicts! πŸ€—πŸͺ΄πŸ’•
@kscape being able to better navigate community posts, both your own and others, is definitely on our road map.

We're hoping these #TechTeamTuesday posts will help us communicate more clearly what's we are working on week to week AND to hear from y'all like this and let us know what you think can be better to continue to make Greg the best plant app it can be!
@babyfiretiger13 so glad to hear it!
@RJG yes! I’m totes in to help improve the experience for both the devs and the user :) Greg is already perfect in my eyes, but I know it will get better from here! #GregGang4Life πŸ’•
@kscape we are so glad to have you!!
All over it.
*patiently waiting for the android version next week* πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
Ok, I love the new tagging! I was at work this morning and just got the update
So excited!!!
Yay, great facelift!πŸ‘Œ This is awesome! Loving the whole new look and everything so far! Still checking it out!!
2w ago
Exciting ✨
So so amazing, Kiersten! Love you and the #gregteam! These guides are TO DIE FOR!!!!!!
Please make it so you can share plant schedules with people or users! Super helpful if you’re going out of town and need someone to water your plants.
@Dashka this is definitely on our roadmap!! It's something I'm extremely excited for!
I love the newest release! πŸ’―πŸ’―β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ’•πŸ’•
@kscape Glad you are here.I can do a few things well… tech things isn’t one of them.
? so this isn't available to android??
@kris10nicolee it will be next week! All the same functionality πŸ™‚
Love the new update. Especially the timeline and being able to add notes. πŸ‘
This is so exciting!! Loving these new features! πŸ€—πŸ€—
Loving the new guides and tips!
Great update! I had one of my aglaonema too close to a window and now moved it away! Hopefully it will start growing again!πŸͺ΄β£οΈ
@sarahsalith πŸ˜‚
Question: how do you add a plant to the plant graveyard?
And/or is a there a way to β€œrenew” the card if you bought a sub? 🫒 shhh that was supposed to be secret.
@Vinxy2 I've gotten "replacement" plants before. At first, I was cheating and just replacing the whole plant and pretending that it was the same one on Greg. Then I started to add a new plant and it was just 2.0οΏΌ so I know it's a replacement.
@sarahsalith OMG love all these. I need the outside to let me know it’s going to drop below 60!
And the tile: where did I leave mine phone while picking up my watering can!😜🀣
@sarahsalith I think Bros w/hoes has a sticker like that. They do β€œplant stories”
@sarahsalith lol. I guess I will start doing that. I’m not ready to confess how many I’ve done.
@Vinxy2 hey- all the plants we've killed gives us the knowledge that we have today! It's the circle of life. I can tell you 1,000 things NOT to do for a SOP or an Alocasia or a stupid money tree.
@sarahsalith lol. Love it. I could use alocasia help. Overall they look ok except the stems are always bent over.
It looks really awesome, but where can I find it? I have the latest update of the app
@KikiGoldblatt how did you access those pages?
@Jeroen You’ll have to scroll down. They’ll be beneath the Ask An Expert and About Me sections, respectively
@Jeroen I had to go to the App Store and usage the app manually
