With the new release, you will experience that Colibo is loading faster in both workgroups, news feed, and your department. As soon as the pages are loaded the first time (which may take a bit longer than usual), they will be a lot faster. In some areas, the performance has been optimized with over 100%, which we hope is noticeable for the users.
As a lot of you know we have been working a lot with performance. The growth of Colibo requires a certain standard, which is why this release has primarily been focused on performance. We are working towards the feeling of an application rather than a website when using Colibo, which means that users won't experience load time when navigating the intranet.
This will hopefully be more and more noticeable after every release. This new release is the first step towards it.
More opportunities for posts and news
As the sender of posts and news in Colibo, you will experience more opportunities, which makes it easier in your daily life. Now it is possible to target posts and news to both individual users, groups, departments or a mix of the above.
You will be able to create a post or news article wherever you are in the intranet. The default recipient will be either the group or department you are located in, but from there it's possible to add more recipients or move the default recipients. This means that you can target the recipients just as you like, and it doesn't matter where on the intranet you are standing, which makes it a lot easier for the sender of the information.
Furthermore, both news and posts contain text editing fields, which makes it easier to work with the visuals of the text.
Upload and play videos directly in Colibo
In the new release, it's possible to attach a video to your post or news article directly from your phone or computer, just as it is still possible to embed a video from e.g. Youtube or Vimeo.
This means that it's not necessary for the recipient to download the video to watch it. Videos can be streamed directly in the feed.
Further more you will experience a design upgrade primarily in the feed, news, posts, and groups. Some of the icons will look different and the visual elements in the posts will be improved as well.
- 'Show in feed' - We are working on a future solution; a new 'notifikation concept'.
- Home button can't be clicked to reload the page anymore (Single Page Applikation), will return in a future release.
- The ability to favorite a news article has been removed.
- The ability to print a news article has been removed.
- The ability to post a feed item on behalf of another user has been removed.
