Jive SharePoint Connector is now available!  This Jive SharePoint Connector can only be used with Jive 5.0.1 and 5.0.2, and is not an upgrade from the Jive SharePoint Connector 1.6 plugin.  SPC 5.0 has the same features as Jive SharePoint Connector 1.6.

SharePoint Connector

04.19.12   Overview of Changes

  • Configure a time threshold to restrict older SharePoint documents from showing up in activity, recent content, and email notification when they are first streamed.
  • Customize a socialized place when SharePoint Server is down or not available.
  • Socialize sites without socializing their sub-sites.
  • SharePoint server time-outs are now handled gracefully so that Jive users don't have to wait when requesting assets.

Pursuant to standard software development practices and consistent with prior communications, Jive's policy for maintenance releases is to solely include fixes to issues identified since the prior release.  To ensure smooth upgrades, new product features are purposely not introduced in the quarterly maintenance releases.


Furthermore, new features introduced in the latest version of Jive are not backported to previous versions by default.  The rationale is the same as with maintenance releases; we aim to provide stability first and foremost and not force changes upon our customer base.

Please follow the Jive Release Schedule for the latest timing on upcoming releases.

02.29.2012- Updated releases for Jive 4.5 and Jive 5.0.

02.29.2012- Updated releases for Jive 4.5 and Jive 5.0.

Following the EOL of Jive 4.0, the original SBS Mobile application will soon be removed from iTunes.  You may wish to update the mobile permissions for your community to ensure that your current users aren't impacted while concurrently removing the link to iTunes from profile pages.  For example, current users could be added to a permission group with mobile access while excluding the rest of the community members.

Jive 4.5.6+ communities licensed with the mobile module can utilize the cross-platform HTML5 mobile web application and/or recently released native iPhone application.  Details can be found in the The specified item was not found. group.


Jive is committed more than ever to the mobile enablement of our public and private communities.  By making this move, we both eliminate confusion over which app is the latest in the App Store and can focus on delivering the best possible next-generation mobile experience. 

If you have any questions related to your current Jive deployment and how this announcement may impact you please contact Jive Training and Support Resources or your account manager.


Thank you,
