It has certainly been an unexpected six months since the start of 2020. Back on January 1st, when we all celebrated the start of the new year, none of us expected the lockdown and global pandemic that would follow, nor the events in the USA that would galvanise Black Lives Matter around the world.
In amongst all of this, in early June we reached the milestone of six million users worldwide, after hitting five million last November. We also saw our best-ever month for active users in May, driven both by the natural growth of Overleaf we’ve seen each year since we started back in 2012, and also the accelerated move to online collaborative tools in the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic which has swept across the globe in a few short months.

As much of the world continues in lockdown, we wanted to update you all on what we’re doing to help you work from home during the global Coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the free account upgrade we announced last month, we’ve started to host a series of webinars on a range of topics. You can find out more about both of these initiatives in this post.

In response to the ongoing developments around the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 pandemic, Overleaf is committed to helping everyone continue to collaborate and work as needed from a remote environment.
As a remote team ourselves, we know how important it is to be able to collaborate effectively, and to assist with this we’re providing free upgrades to Overleaf Professional Accounts for the next two months.

Earlier this month we hit a number of significant milestones at Overleaf that we’d like to share with you all 😊

In 2016, CERN was looking to adopt a single, collaborative authoring tool to provide to their researchers. They conducted a year-long trial of three platforms, with Overleaf (https://www.overleaf.com) emerging as the best fit.
