Today, we are very excited to announce 9 major feature releases that are going to help you get more done in less time with the groups of people around you. These feature releases support many of the problems that we all face when it comes to getting things done with the multiple groups of people we interact with on a regular basis. Think departments, committees, partners, clients and the many other groups that help you get things done.
These feature releases are also a result from listening to you. Through the first 2 years of Social HubSite inception, we’ve documented problems faced by many of the early adopters. What we realized is that the Social HubSite platform has done an excellent job at helping people publish and share content with their community, however it was missing something to keep community members engaged. This missing element was how Social HubSite, or any community-based platforms for that matter, lacked integrations that support operational initiatives to force members back into the system. Think project management, message replies by email, task management and more.
With these new feature releases, your Social HubSite will now serve as one location to get more done in less time cutting out the need to manage multiple web applications.
So without further ado, here’s what new…
- Assign/manage tasks
- Create to-do lists
- Create messages to specific members
- Easily add members to projects
- Create and manage milestones
- Organize tasks through a drag and drop interface
- Share files
- Project calendar
- Manage user permissions
- and much more!
Reply back to activity posts, private messages, forum posts and more directly with your email. Your replies will be stored on your Social HubSite in the appropriate place so you can reference them all in one place.
A New and Improved Inbox
Your Social HubSite inbox now gives you the ability to create labels and organize messages, attach multiple files and filetypes, and format messages more easily using a new message editor. Private messages are now automatically saved as drafts as you write them, assuring that you don’t lose any messages based on lost internet connections, etc.
Enhanced Site Search
Finding what you need just got much faster. The search functionality now gives members the ability to quickly find people, activity posts, blog posts, documents, events and a multitude of other post types.
Infinite Scrolling for Activity Posts
You now have the ability to scroll through all of your activity posts without having to refresh the page. This is a small, yet critical feature when it comes to speeding up the way you work.
Enhanced Photo Sharing
You can now easily post multiple photos and add comments to your activity posts. The photo viewer also makes it easy for members to like, comment and sort through multiple photos at once.
Edit Activity Posts
Posts can be edited right from within your post stream with a click of a button.
This optional feature gives you the ability to reward members for their participation through badges and automatic notifications. You can create a reward system based on actions, points and much more. Ultimately this feature encourages members to take action help you achieve your mission through your Social HubSite.
Do More with Forms
A major upgrade to Social HubSite’s form integration now allows you to easily create and embed forms within pages. Form add-ons now include the ability to create new members (perfect for clubs/associations), take payments (e.g. through payment gateways such as Stripe.com, PayPal, Authorize.net and more), automate marketing (e.g. through services such as Zapier.com, MailChimp, etc.), run surveys and much more.
On top of the new features, we have our team standing by to help you make sure your Social HubSite is setup and running properly. We look forward to helping you!
