As you may know SmarterPath has changed and improved in recent years. New functionalities have been implemented in order to meet the needs of even more use cases. For example, usability in a new redesign.
In order to be able to offer even more benefits of SmarterPath, at the end of 2016 Pokeshot decided to develop SmarterPath also for other platforms. In spring 2017 we started with the implementation for Microsoft Office365, which will be completed by Q4/2017. Another platform after the Microsoft Office365 implementation is already planned.
SmarterPath, as well as for Jive, is offered as a SaaS product and will be developed continuously for all platforms in parallel. That means the following benefits for our existing customers:

We wanted to announce a change to the following unsupported community plugins that have been maintained thus far by Ryan Rutan
As we continue to build out core functionality, we are reevaluating the existing unsupported plugins. We are changing the way these are handled, no longer publishing them as plugins and instead we are happy to work with you to evaluate how similar capability might be reproduced through add-ons as part of your upgrade. In some cases we are considering them for productization and the team is reviewing them now. Anyone who is already using them today should contact their sales rep and the upgrade of these plugins will be assessed as part of your migration process. In the meantime the product team is assessing which of these capabilities could be productized and officially supported in the future.
We've posted FAQ: Unsupported Community Plugins in Jive 7 to address some common questions, and Ryan Rutan has also posted a blog about it in The specified item was not found. . If you would like any other information, please let us know.
