Following up on the release of Jive 7, substantial optimizations have now been made for internal communities as well.
Jive has finally improved the quality of their translations within Activity Streams and the Inbox. This was necessary because the translations were sometimes very confusing and unnatural.
Jive also recognized that more and more customers are moving to Jive Cloud and have concerns about security. This prompted Jive to make encryption at rest available.
In addition,Jive has now optimized the performance of Producteev, which was introduced as beta in the Fall 2013 Release to replace traditional tasks. Producteev now provides task filtering (“active and completed” & “Tasks I’m following”) as well as many more new features and enhancements.
