2018 has been the year of improving productivity in workplaces and Convo has been at the top of its game. Earlier this year we promised to add new features to the platform so you can achieve your work goals faster, and we delivered on that promise.
As we reach Q4, let’s take a quick look back on all the good things that came to the Convo platform this year.
Geo Tagged Posts
Convo introduced Geo tagging of posts to help connect the non-desk workforce with the workers in offices. It enabled them to share their location with their teammates, whether they were logged in from mobile or web, with just a click. The feature helps managers keep track of their teams and makes reporting easier for field workers.
Customized User Profiles
User profiles on a work platform are great icebreakers, giving groups an easy way to initiate conversations and help teammates get to know each other. They are also a good way to exchange contact information like phone numbers, addresses, etc., in case someone needs to reach out to a teammate when they’re not available in the office.
Convo’s custom user profiles were added to give users a more personalized view of their Convo networks. Network admins are allowed to create as many custom fields as required to fit each company’s individual culture and needs.
Advanced Group Settings
Groups have always been an integral part of the Convo platform. They help keep conversations organized and give you a central place to capture team or project discussions. To give you more power over the content being shared in groups, advanced group settings were also introduced in Convo.
Group admins now have the ability to restrict users from leaving groups and allow only specific members to create posts. Restricting post creation for other members means, they will not be able to create, edit or tag the the group in already created posts. This preserves the integrity of the information shared and allows only select users to make changes.
Advanced Network Settings
Along with advanced group settings, Convo introduced the ability for network admins to restrict group creation. This allows admins to control the number of groups being created on the network and helps keep track of information a lot easier.
The platform also now supports sending out SMS notifications across the network, enabling admins to send important messages and alerts to people within the network.
Default Notifications and Trending Topics
It’s important to stay on top of all activity happening on your network. Recognizing this, Convo introduced two new features to make activity tracking easier for everyone. The default notification settings made it mandatory for users to get notified about select activity preferences set by the network admins.
The trending hashtags, on the other hand, allow users to see what are the most popular posts on the network, and making them easier to obtain.
