The IGLOO Software team is pleased to announce our latest release has successfully been deployed. All communities are back online.
Here are some of the highlights from our latest release
The blogs page now features the ability to create an article before delving into a channel. After selecting "Add Article" from a drop down menu you will select which channel to post your article in. When viewing a blog article, additional author information is now available below a post, this feature offers you the ability to view their profile and other articles. When the author of a post comments on their post, those comments will appear highlighted, this only applies to blogs.
The broadcast feature is now available for all items such as; documents, forums, calendar, wiki articles and blogs.
When broadcasting you are now provided an editor to make adjustments to your broadcast message.
When viewing an event in the calendar application or using the calendar widget, you can select Export to have the event downloaded as an ICS file. This file can then be imported or opened with a compatible calendar application which supports ICS files such as Microsoft Outlook.
When a member comments on an item they will now have 7 min to edit their comment for the purpose of correcting mistakes. After this time they will no longer be able to edit. Members with full write permissions on a blog, wiki, forum or document will be able to delete any comment made on the item.
Reserve functionality of documents has changed, when viewing a document in which you have write permissions or higher the option to reserve a document will present itself after downloading the document. The reserve option is also available by accessing the action drop down for the document.
Group Spaces now allow for the addition of pages. This will enable administrators to expand the content of group spaces like they can with community pages.
Members will now be notified in the user bar of pending connections with other members for the community they are viewing.
When selecting your unread messages from the user bar, the messages area will now pop out of the user bar and display your eight most recent messages.
Sub navigation can be enabled for any root level page, this navigation menu will appear directly below the main navigation bar. This sub navigation will show any child pages of the root page it's being enabled on.
When hovering the mouse over an image or document the time stamp will display a preview button, selecting this will provide a preview of the item on screen without taking you to the files location.
Application specific search areas in the wiki and calendar applications have been removed. The use of the community wide search will now be used for queries for the wiki and calendar application. The custom searches are done by clicking the drop down to the right of your search term and selecting the area you would like to search (wiki, calendar, blogs etc.). Related labels for your search term will be displayed at the bottom of your results, these are the top labels based on the top 100 search results. The darker labels indicate the labels relevancy to your search term.
The calendar widget now has four layout options (standard, compact, large grid and small grid). The recent activity and recent comments widgets now display when applicable the group space which an item is from.
Version comparisons are now available for the wiki application. When viewing an article, selecting last change will display the current version with the previous version using colour coding to differentiate the changes. Comments made on a wiki article now appear below the article.
