We have a fantastic customer advisory group that has over the last year+ helped to us at Jive to understand a set of use cases around working with 'partners' – broadly defined here as anyone beyond your employee base who you want to partner with in a more private context. Basically, this is for all the relationships and work that fall in the space between your employee network and a fully open public community, and you could think of it as restricting access to the broader community (and global content or people browsing). We've formed this group to share use cases and help us prioritize our development efforts. The first major deliverable of this partnership has been a solution for easy ad hoc collaboration with anyone, entirely in private: External Groups.
For the next phase of work, we are exploring a number of use cases. If one or more of these is important to your business and you'd like to help shape Jive's future product direction in this area, please apply to join the advisory group (details below).
Note: for feedback on the alread-released External Groups feature, you can always ask share ideas and ask questions here in the Jive Interactive Intranet group.
