Meet ONLYOFFICE 9.5 with modernized editors, reports in CRM, secure authentication and many other perks

Hello everyone!

The new version of ONLYOFFICE is out. Big updates cover editing suite, portal management, CRM, Projects and Talk modules, and multiple back-end capabilities.

Document Editors with the next-level interface

Version 5.0 of ONLYOFFICE editing suite comes along. It has a completely new tabbed interface and a number of exciting new features. Watch a brief video tour now:

Improved authentication security

Two-step verification. In third-party apps menu we added two-step verification platforms, Clickatell and SMSC.

Single Sign-On. The feature allows signing on via AD FS among other third-party identity services like Shibboleth and OneLogin. Single Sign-On is now provided with customizable button.

CRM with reports and new currency settings

CRM module now features Reports section that automates productivity assessment, either with employee-specific reports or general summaries:

In the new version users can also set up a default trade currency and define the currency exchange rates to manually maintain the correctness of the conversions.

Smarter Projects module

Welcome a handful of improvements here, namely:

  • Use bulk actions: move, complete and remove group of selected tasks, remove multiple milestones at once;
  • Set group access rights in private projects;
  • Personally select a start page of the module;
  • Hide documents, tasks and milestones of paused projects from common lists;
  • Allow creating new projects for all portal users;
  • Experience optimized navigation throughout the module.


Group access rights in private projects

The new Talk

We slightly redesigned the chat module:

Additionally, the new chat allows you to delete the uploaded files in the dialogues to clear the disk storage.

Optimized portal management

If a user is blocked, their items can be easily reassigned or removed. Control over tasks, projects, contacts and documents can be moved to other users. Documents can be also deleted, as well as mailboxes and emails.


Dutch is now available as a new portal language. We also considerably improved translations in Turkish, Vietnamese, Italian, Chinese, Polish and Ukrainian. Read more about portal language settings here.

We encourage our user community to openly participate in the translation of ONLYOFFICE. Recently, we posted a story about Simone, who helped us translate ONLYOFFICE into Italian.

If you have any questions, please leave your comments below this post. Your feedback is very appreciated!

  • Just updated the community server to 9.5 and Documents is on 5.0.3 but i don't see the new interface for the editors... am I missing something?

  • Will you consider to make a desktop version of Chat/Talk? We have tried to integrate with Talk with third-party XMPP clients, but file transfer/sharing is not supported.

    • Hello! Unfortunately, we are not planning a desktop version of Talk, at least currently. Regarding your third-party integration, our support team might help you. Please write an email to describe the problem and attach a screenshot of chat integration settings. Good luck!

  • At what point will community edition receive this update? I usually like to first test new major releases in lab before applying update to production server.

    • Hi Kris!
      We are releasing Enterprise Edition by the end of October, as I mentioned in one of the previous comments. When the release is out, we will point out what features are available in Community Edition.
      For now, you can try 9.5 in cloud if you want a test :)
