So I have been working on Jive for over a year now and I have tons of fun little factoids to share with any interested person on what little tweaks could go a long way in improving the usability and actual business process that the user is trying to solve. Now I am sure you are thinking we all have great ideas but Jive doesn't have the capacity to listen to us all, and I am sure that this is correct but, I also argue that user feedback is the quickest way to improve your product which is designed ultimately with them in mind and eventually for them. So the two pieces that I want to address and please feel free to add yours in the comments! are:

 

Make the overview bar links customizable... (changeable)

Options people could include instead for example: (more specifics)
  • Weekly Discussions
  • Newsletters
  • Featured Photos
  • Videos

 

A nice add on to this would be the multiple homepage version where the different top level links would take you to new wigetized homepages so you could really dazzle the end user and partition the various engagements you are trying to include them in (ideation/discussion/blog etc..).

 

Create bookmarks at the group level

 

Our old collaboration platforms most used group feature was bookmarks. People love to send links around of interesting material (usually by email). Huge quick win!

 

I know that you must get a million feature requests a day but all I ask is that you consider and maybe even respond with the fact your already doing it!

 

Thoughts? PS I got an error when trying to post.... please don't give up the fight on getting rid of the bugs!!!
