With the April release we are rolling out several new features as a preview and are looking forward to your feedback. The newsfeed has been redesigned, and now includes the ability to watch videos and like posts directly in the feed, and it offers more options for displaying images. All of this that will make user interactions more engaging and meaningful. On top, users can now translate news on demand. The new Notification Center keeps things organized. You can now recover deleted content and we are also expanding our integrations with a new plugin for SAP Fiori and an integration for files from Office 365.
It’s probably no coincidence that while a reported 87% of today’s workforce still typically receives company information via an intranet (in addition to email or in-person), it’s that exact same number who say that they’re unengaged with their jobs.

For many companies and internal communication professionals, their employee communication project is the first time they will have created a digital and real-time communication channel that targets all employees, many of whom have never before been targeted by an internal IT project. So the big question is: How is it done? How did DHL, Brink’s and Audi manage their projects, and what’s the secret to their success?
This year starts with a great app update that brings integrations for Office 365 along with more new features that support larger and distributed organizations. The re-confirmation of terms and conditions works much easier now and we also added improvements for a better user experience. And everyone who is still hungry for more can check out the preview package with brand new trial features.
