Convo offers users with a lot of flexibility when it comes to managing the data shared on their networks. Network admins are able to monitor all content, define company policies, create custom user profiles, manage users and define their privileges on the network.
With this release, Convo offers more privileges to the network admins to make management easier and improve overall productivity of their teams.
Groups provide a dedicated space for having team specific discussions or managing projects you are working on. However, in some cases this leads to a number of outdated and unnecessary groups which the network admins have to identify and keep track of individually. Currently on Convo, all users except guest users can create groups.
With the new release, network admins on Convo get the ability to restrict group creation for all users and allow only select members to create groups. These members could be managers, executives, team leads or regular users.
By default, everyone who becomes a member will be able to create groups. So this new change will not disrupt the current flow in which existing networks operate. In order to restrict group creation for users, network admins will have to go to the manage groups section.
By enabling the checkbox for ‘Allow only selected users to create groups’, they can disable group creation for all users except those selected by them. If no users are selected, only admins will be able to create groups on the network.
Restricted group creation will help network admins manage groups effectively by making it easier for them to keep track of the number of groups created and the activity happening in them. It will also increase team productivity by providing a lesser number of groups to keep track of.
SMS notifications are an integral part of staying connected with peers and getting alerts or reminders about different activity that’s happening around. They come in handy when communicating urgent information with people in remote areas or sending out updates to people on the go.
Now on Convo, admins can also use SMS notifications to send out information and alerts to all users on their networks at any time. They can do this by going to ‘SMS Notification’ section in the network settings. Admins will have the choice to add network name as a signature at the bottom with the SMS. The characters of network name will be subtracted by the total character limit of the SMS.
This provides a quick way to deliver textual information. The SMS notifications will be allowed to carry URLS and text, but currently will not be supporting any attachments.
