We get a lot of great feedback about how Convo helps you be more efficient, get real work done with your team, and keep in sync with the pace of your organization. Over the past year we have packed in a lot of powerful features to make Convo useful for you, but along the way the interface also became more cluttered and complex than it needed to be.
We have recently released a set of navigation and interface updates to help reduce unnecessary clutter and make Convo as beautiful as it is powerful. Here is a quick look at the new stuff to look out for in the new Convo –
Simple and clean profiles and groups
User profiles and group pages now expose even more useful data in the right panel.
Along with details about someone’s designation, department and contact information, profile pages now also show top tags and top groups for each member in your network. There is also a counter for each member’s total posts and discussions.
Group pages include counters for total posts and discussions as well as the group’s top tags and most active members. In addition, the group page gives you a handy list of references, milestones and task lists shared with each group.
The navigation panel on the left keeps your chat contacts accessible at all times. Now its easier check who is online and jump into a conversation at any time. Your list of groups is also available on all group and News Feed views which makes it a breeze to jump across groups. Remember that you can always type in a user or group name in the search box above the News Feed to quickly get to the information you are looking for.
At the top of your search results, we already show you tags related to your query and suggestions to improve your results. Now the right panel also provides a full advanced search form that makes it easier and faster to find exactly what you’re looking for.
Easier than ever to Convo with your team
This release includes a bunch of improvements that make it easier for you to invite others and that help your coworkers get in and get started faster. An invite box is always available on the right panel of your News Feed and when you start typing an email address we auto-complete it for you with @yourcompany.com.
Switch networks from your account menu
For those of you collaborating on multiple networks, you can now switch between them by clicking your user image at the top right of the application and selecting a network to jump to.
We’re excited to share the new Convo with you. You can access it on any browser and on the Convo Desktop app. We would love to hear what you think, so leave a comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
