We began this year with a commitment: to deliver transformative updates that would redefine your LiveTiles experience. The first step was our June Release, which came packed with groundbreaking features designed to take your digital workplace to the next level.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our second major update. Its goal? To simplify administrative tasks, optimize system management, and propel your enterprise-level operations to new heights.
So, let’s explore our latest innovation—The LiveTiles Operations Center.
What is the LiveTiles Operations Center?
Designed with administrative efficiency in mind, this centralized hub is engineered to streamline your administrative process. Say goodbye to juggling multiple LiveTiles products, each with their own configurations. We now offer a single ‘pane of glass’, allowing you to manage everything from one central location.
The Operations Center places all your management tools under one roof. Now, let’s take a deep dive into some of its key features:
Navigation Studio for SharePoint
As always, user experience is at the forefront of our innovation. We’ve replaced our previous JSON setup with a Navigation Studio that streamlines the admin experience. The Navigation Studio offers an intuitive Matrix Navigation and Mega-Menu configuration interface that’s easy for everyone to use.
The Navigation Studio enables sophisticated targeting by letting you personalize your navigation menus based on your specific audience. Its multi-tenant configuration allows you to effortlessly manage settings for distinct user groups within your organization. Our new translation feature simplifies the task of catering to a diverse and multilingual workforce.
When launching new products or updates, having a single source of truth to navigate complexities is key. That’s why we’ve centralized all technical documentation in the Operations Center. Whether you’re starting from scratch or improving current setups, our detailed guidebook is your go-to manual for implementing all LiveTiles solutions with maximum efficiency.
One place for all your web parts
An orderly intranet is crucial to any enterprise. As the Reach Web Parts family grows, we’ve simplified the process of maintaining an organized and efficient intranet. Now, you can download pre-built “.sppkg” web part packages directly from the Operations Center, helping you keep everything in one place.
The web parts cover everything from news feeds to employee directories and more specialized features, allowing you to customize your intranet. Our easy-to-follow guides simplify their integration, ensuring functionality and user-friendliness without the need for extensive coding.
