Summary

 

Jive currently supports Internet Explorer 9 & 10 within all Jive platforms, including Jive Custom and Jive Cloud.

While both Internet Explorer 9 and 10 will still be able to access Jive after the 2017.1 Cloud upgrade, any issues identified within these browsers will not be fixed or resolved unless it also occurs on Internet Explorer 11 as well. This includes any issues that render the interface non-functional for any users on those browsers. 2017.1's GA date is targeted for Q3 of this year, though customers will be upgraded throughout the latter half of 2017. Further communication on 2017.1 dates will be forthcoming within the next month.

At this time, this policy does not affect Jive Custom users.

Why EOL IE9/10?

 

Both Internet Explorer 9 & 10 were released over 4 years ago and is not able to take advantage of many functionalities and features in a modern web application. For Jive, this limitation is particularly highlighted when using modern JavaScript.

 

Supporting Internet Explorer 9 & 10 over the past few years required our developers to create complex workarounds or making conscious decisions *not* to utilize features that modern browsers support. This prevented us from truly optimizing Jive to create the best experience possible for our users.

 

Finally, Internet Explorer 9 & 10 usage exposes Jive and our users to security risks. Microsoft removed support for Internet Explorer 9 & 10 in January 2016 and has acknowledged that they do not plan on addressing any security issues identified within those browsers.

 

Recommendations & Next Steps

 

Jive Cloud will not lock Internet Explorer 9 or 10 users out of the system, but the 2017 release was not tested nor optimized for those browsers. Moving forward, many critical parts of the application may be non-functional if users are on these versions of IE.

 

It is recommended that users plan on upgrading to Internet Explorer 11.

Hi Everyone,

 

I'd like to personally invite you to a great webinar we're going to have next week with ADP: 'Transformative Results Through Internal & External Engagement".

We are always looking to innovate on our cloud features and provide the highest quality to our customers. With this in mind, we recently addressed some issues in our cloud translation service. We were able to provide these updates to our customers without interruption of the service or your community. This document outlines the improvements made.

 

Improved translation performance

We've improved the way we request translations for content from each provider. The previous version of the service had the potential to send a translation request per individual sentence, which in turn caused the translation providers to throttle connections originating from Jive as well as overall decreased translation service throughput. With the new service changes, it's possible to translation a large piece of content in a single request to a provider.  This makes the overall translation experience faster and more efficient, saving time and reducing the number of errors encountered.

 

Enhanced security with the latest APIs

The Lionbridge connector now leverages the latest Lionbridge API. This ensures we are up-to-date with their latest version and adheres to their best security and support processes.

 

Microsoft Bing Deprecated

Microsoft recently deprecated their Bing translation engine (as part of their overall DataMarket deactivation) and recommended that users switch to the Azure Cognitive Services Translation offering. We are therefore pleased to introduce Azure as the replacement Microsoft translation engine. Microsoft warns on their site that existing Datamarket subscriptions will be deactivated as of April 30, so any customer currently using Bing as their translation provider will need to obtain a subscription key from Microsoft and switch their configured engine in Jive to Azure. Here are the instructions as follows...

 

1. Generate a key for Microsoft Azure Announcements: Action Required before April 30, 2017 - Microsoft Translator Moves to Azure – Customer Feedback & Ideas f…

2. Go to Admin Console > Settings > Content Translation Service in Jive and select "Microsoft (Azure)" as your provider:

3. Paste the subscription key into the form field provider and hit Save

 

If you need any assistance on this approach, please ask here or contact Jive support.

 

Language Variants

Any language variants supported by a translation provider will now be returned and shown in the languages dropdown. Previously, we were inadvertently removing "duplicate" languages despite differences in locale (e.g., Simplified Chinese vs. Traditional Chinese).

Refined user experience

We are now honoring when a user has specified a locale in the browser. When a user has set their locale, we will use this as the default locale when translating content. This will be released with the April maintenance release.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to comment here. If you encounter any issues with translations, please file a case with support.
