Available in November, the Jive Fall cloud release provides compelling new functionality to help companies achieve significant business advantages:
Strengthen ability for companies to bridge silos that exist within the enterprise. The Fall cloud release further extends Jive's leadership as one of the only communication and collaboration hubs in the industry that empowers companies and their employees, partners and customers to work better together, whether the business operates in a pure cloud, on-premise or hybrid infrastructure. New integrations include:
New Jive Connector for Google Docs (Beta). Jive has extended its integration with Google to encompass Google Docs. In addition to the popular Jive Connector for Gmail and Jive Connector for Google Drive, users can experience Google Docs directly within the Jive platform. Multiple editors can work simultaneously on the same document and sync comments - within Jive or via Google Drive. Additionally, a Google Doc can be created within Jive, eliminating the need to download a document or navigate to an external system.
Jive Connector for Outlook Online. Marking the first milestone in Jive's integration with Microsoft Office 365 announced last month, Jive has rolled out the Jive Connector for Outlook Online™. This new connector brings relevant Jive content and conversations into Outlook email threads for seamless reference, and allows people to directly reply from the device and operating system of their choice. Additionally, email content from Outlook can be integrated into discussions in Jive to bring together the right people and information regardless of source.
Enhanced mobile apps for both iOS and Android. The Jive iOS app now offers a new design that provides an easier way to consume content and pictures. The iOS app also has better support for custom single sign-on implementations and offers better handling of long comment threads. In addition, the Jive Android app now features announcement viewing and the ability for people to follow the content, people and places most important to them.
Evolution of Tiles. Jive has added more tiles to the solution, allowing customers to transition away from widgets and embrace ever-improving tiles + pages capabilities. New tiles include the "Ask a Question" tile, which is a simple way for employees to find answers to their questions, whether it be HR, help desks, or any other part of an organization. Start typing a question and it will reveal similar questions that have been asked before, which makes it easier and faster for employees to find the answers.
