We are pleased to announce today the release of our new v10.5 platform. It adds a host of exciting new features that enable our users to collaborate and work together around internal projects and manage external communities easier and faster than ever.
The first thing you will notice is our improved activity feed. It is no longer just a simple list of individual messages. We have now brought together related messages as a conversation stream. We have also redesigned the quickpost feature so now you can contribute quickly and easily without ever leaving the home page.
Another exciting feature we have introduced in this update is folders. By bringing a familiar and practical way of classifying shared things to your communities, it is now easy to keep things organized.
We have also introduced a new way of managing videos. You can now upload and share videos and not have to worry about the format and video size. You also don’t have to worry about plugins, video readers and so on…. the video is available in your post with its own reader.
When it comes to sharing resources, we have also added two new capabilities. You can now decide if people in your network can download a copy of your attachment or they should only view it as ‘read-only’. And we have also added a ‘Download All’ link so you no longer have to download attachments one by one.
Searching on blueKiwi is now even more powerful. The autosuggestions are now almost instantaneous and are displayed as you type. The suggestions now also include posts and conversations – making the search results comprehensive. And we have also created a search field inside your groups or communities so you can limit the search to just their content and conversations.
Other Improvements and Updates
We have also been busy improving other things as well. For instance, we have extended moderation privileges to our space administrators so they can manage objectionable content in their communities.
We have also introduced an event calendar. The Events tab has been completely redesigned to take into account this new format. We also took advantage of this new feature to redesign how you accept or turn down invitations. You can also download the list of events you are attending and synchronize it with other calendars on your computer, smart phones or other hand-held devices.
Googledocs can now become part of your conversation. Just post a link to your public google doc and everybody in the community can can work on it and have a conversation all in the same place.
We also have an interactive time-line as well, so when you are looking for things, you can also see when the conversations were taking place. And interactive graphics are now also part of your quick poll and survey features.
We redesigned the bookmarklet in order to ensure the greatest compatibility with the browsers you use.
Administrators will love our new application feature management function. Now they can select a list of people and personalize their profile, application and what kind of posts they can make without having to change each person’s profile individually.
Another big feature of this release is our newest member of the bK Connectivity Module. We would like to introduce bk Connect DMS. This connector allows you to work with documents in over 40 market-leading document management systems such as Open Text, Microsoft SharePoint, and Documentum. We will be posting something about it shortly, so stay tuned.
