Early this year, we set an ambitious goal: to speed up our innovation and deliver three major product updates to you. Now, we’re ready to roll out the first of these exciting updates.  

On our mission to enhance your work experience, we’ve tapped into the power of AI and focused on improving the user experience across our Intranet, Reach, and Directory solutions. Our objective? To revitalize your day-to-day operations and elevate internal communications like never before.  

Today is a big day for us, and hopefully for you too. We’re excited to present these updates and offer a detailed guide. In this post, we’ll discuss how these improvements support our dedication to providing the best features for a smooth digital workplace experience.

Let’s dive in and explore what’s new:

VIVA Connections Cards for SharePoint and Teams

At LiveTiles, we’re proud to be a strategic partner of Microsoft, and our main goal is to help businesses get the most out of their investment in Microsoft technologies. We do this by adding extra features and capabilities to create a more engaging and comprehensive digital workplace experience.

Presenting our latest innovation – the new VIVA Connections Cards for SharePoint and Teams. We’ve designed this integration to work smoothly with Microsoft, creating an ‘everywhere experience’ that not only boosts user engagement but also cuts down on the need to flip between different apps.

Let’s take a closer look at these new VIVA cards:  

  • News Card: Integrates Reach’s news and announcements directly into the Microsoft VIVA Dashboard, keeping users updated with the most relevant information.
  • Events Card: Displays all important events happening across the organization in an easy-to-follow timeline, ensuring users never miss out on important meetings or events.
  • Weather Card: Provides real-time weather conditions, helping users plan their day effectively.
  • People Search Card: Acts as a directory on the go, making it easy to find the right person at the right time within the organization.
  • Office Locations Card: Provides details about all your offices, enhancing inter-office communication and making remote work more efficient.

Cognitive Page Translation for your Intranet

In our quest to make digital workplaces more inclusive and accessible, we’ve introduced a new feature – Cognitive Page Translation. This feature, powered by Azure Machine Translation, allows users to translate all text content on a page automatically.

Users can easily choose their preferred language from a dropdown menu. Once selected, the page content will be instantly translated. This feature removes language barriers, ensuring that all employees, regardless of their native language, can access and understand the content on your intranet.

This not only enhances the user experience but also fosters a more inclusive and diverse digital workplace. Whether you have a multilingual workforce or operate across different regions, the Cognitive Page Translation feature ensures that everyone is on the same page.

New Navigation Builder for SharePoint

This new feature replaces the previous JSON setup, offering an intuitive Matrix Navigation and Mega-Menu configuration interface that’s easy to use for everyone. Watch this video to learn how it works:

The Mega-Menu Builder brings along fantastic UI support for audience targeting, multi-tenant configurations, and translations. This means you can now effortlessly personalize your navigation menus based on your specific audience, seamlessly manage multiple tenant configurations, and provide translations to accommodate your diverse and multilingual workforce.

Additionally, we’ve updated the navigation designer making it easier than ever to design and navigate your digital workplace.

With these enhancements, you can create a more efficient and user-friendly digital environment that caters to the unique needs of your organization. You can dive into more details in our technical documentation here.
