It's been more than two years since TradeWinds Islands Resorts launched TW Way, their employee relationship platform with Staffbase. Since then, the largest full-service destination resort in Florida has seen a marked increase in employee happiness and engagement.
For our May update, we’ve focused on a fundamental revamp of user onboarding and user management. In addition, we have rolled out two features that have already proven themselves in beta testing: Spaces and the sharing of articles in social networks, both of which are now available to all customers in optimized form. The new chat archive and several improvements to existing functions complete this release. If you want to learn more about all the new functions, read our Release Notes in the Support Portal.
Staffbase is starting the 2018 app year with a huge update that brings many helpful improvements: with Spaces you can delegate content management for your sites or departments, new features in Forms allow you to move more processes into the app, and you can now combine SSO login with other login methods. Additionally, two popular features—chat and video uploading—both received numerous refinements.

With that thought in mind, we've gone back to the drawing board and come up with 18 new ideas for making improvements in this crucial area. 18 is no small number, so, in the interest of speeding things up (see point #11), let's get down to business.
October brings a totally loaded, jam-packed update for your employee app. Here's just a glimpse at some of the engaging new features: notification badges for unread news posts and chat messages; printing on demand of selected news posts; onboarding for users without email; our very first chat bot; and the SAML connector plugin. These new elements, along with many additional improvements for existing functionality, make this a real heavyweight update, and it comes just in time for iOS 11.
