Jive for Outlook

Version 38

    Overview

     

    Jive for Outlook gives email a social life. By bringing the social business power of Jive directly into Microsoft Outlook, we make it possible to collaborate in a new way, without ever leaving Outlook.

     

    This new release replaces the older version of Jive for Outlook. Please upgrade to this new version for continued support.

     

    With Jive for Outlook you can:

    • See activity streams and social profiles, and create threaded discussions and status updates.
    • Turn email threads and document attachments into collaborative posts in Jive.
    • Reply to comments, and include @mentions of people, places, and information.
    • Like, share, and more without having to leave Outlook
    • Get an instant social snapshots of the people you collaborate with.
    • Search across Jive & Outlook to find emails, appointments, attachments, documents and discussions from one, quick search.

    ... and do it all from Outlook.

    New for Jive for Outlook v3

    The new Jive for Outlook v3 for Jive Cloud: Our continued investment in integration across the Microsoft suite comes to fruition with a set of updates geared toward more seamless interaction and increased productivity across systems and workflows. We spend a lot of time in Outlook, so each iteration of Jive for Outlook has furthered our goal of bringing as much work, collaboration and content from Jive into your Outlook as possible. The new release of Jive for Outlook takes that goal several steps further by enabling you to take action on content directly from Outlook, and breaking the reliance on email notifications as a main driver of content.

     

    Structured Outcomes in Outlook

    Just as in Jive for Office, we've brought structured outcomes to content and comments in Outlook. Now you can easily turn talk into action, as well as see any outcomes already set on content.

    Streams in Outlook

    Up until now, if you wanted to take advantage of Jive for Outlook you relied on existing email notifications sent from your Jive community. With the additions of Streams in Outlook, you can now see content from all of your streams--Inbox, Connections and custom streams--without having to set email notifications. You can still use email notifications for the most critical content you want to see in your email, but a quick click to the Streams pane will show you the content in all your streams.

    You can see a count of unread Inbox items in the Jive toolbar, and click on the button to view the streams. Then further refine by Read items or All items, select the Stream you want to view, and filter by content type, person, or both.

    Convert to a private discussion

    We've long been able take an email and convert it do a discussion within a Place in your Jive community. Now you can take that email and convert it to a private discussion--shared either with your entire Jive community or with specific people--to make sure you reach exactly the audience you wish to reach.

     

    The create menu has been consolidated: Create Discussion now allows creation of a discussion in a place as well as a private discussion, and Convert to Discussion does the same. You can now also change the title of the discussion before you post it.

    Jive for Outlook v2.1 brings with it many enhancements, including:

    • Threaded discussions - now, just like in the web interface, you'll be easily able to tell when a comment is in reply to another comment through the threaded styling. Also, clicking on the (in response to <user>) link will highlight the comment that it is in response to.
    • Current comment indicator - got multiple replies? Clicking on an email will highlight the corresponding comment in the preview. Never lose your focus again! See the arrow next to the second comment in the screenshot above? This 'current comment' indicator will persist even after the highlight fades
    • New comment indicator - not sure which is the newest comment in an ongoing discussion? New comment indicators (as shown on the third and fourth comments above) show you which comments follow the one you are currently looking at
    • LIKE!! - one of my personal pet peeve was having to go into the web interface to Like something. Now I can do this directly from Outlook!
    • Helpful/Correct Answers - now if you post a discussion, you can mark a comment as the correct or helpful answer directly from Outlook. You can also see which comments were marked as correct/helpful, and clicking on the user name next to Correct/Helpful answer by will highlight that comment in the discussion.
    • Stop email notifications - don't want to get notified about a particular piece of content in a specific stream, click the Gear icon and then Stop future notifications, and you will remove notifications from the Inbox as well as the current stream from which you got the notification. Note that this only removes the notifications from the inbox and the current stream, so if you're following content in multiple streams you will still get notifications from other streams.
    • View shared content - now you can see not just the notification of the share, but by clicking on View shared item you can see the actual shared content in the preview.
    • Download file - if the notification you received is for an uploaded file, you can now download that file directly from the preview
    • Contact Manager- if the person identified in the Social Bar is not the correct person, or there is no match, you can now search for and select the right person yourself.
    • View count - see how many people have viewed the content
    • External participant indicator - see the external visibility indicators on all externally visible content or collaborators
    • Visibility indicators - see who can see the content, or with whom the Direct Message is being shared
    • Preview on sent items - now just like in the Inbox, you can see the entire discussion or document in the Sent folder as well
    • Citrix support - we now fully support deployment in a Citrix shared workspace environment
    • Myriad of performance and stability improvements
