Build your own Search Experiences using Valo Modern and discover your organization
Living in a flat information architecture has a lot of benefits but can add challenges in terms or findability of the content. In this release, we are introducing components that will allow our partners and customers to build a fully customizable search center, directly in their Modern Intranet! We are happy to release 2 new webparts that combined with our Search WebPart will allow you to build experiences using search boxes and refiners to slice and dice your SharePoint data!
One of the most requested feature for the last 2 years has been a corporate directory that enables users to search for colleagues and discover their organization. The wait is now over as we bring you People Directory, a fully customizable People Center where users can search for their colleagues by their name, phone numbers, departments, titles, etc.
Leverage your best brand ambassadors: your employees with Social Hub!
A very popular feature of our Classic offering has always been the Social Hub. This feature allows communicators and social media gurus to showcase their public activity feeds from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube & Slideshare, directly inside the intranet. The social media channels can be configured and added to any pages and sites of your intranets to further engage your employees!
Inform your employees with Important Messages
Sometimes, you want to broadcast a very important information to your employees and you want them to know about it right away. Important Messages feature is exactly made for this scenario and are available everywhere the user goes. Choose from 4 different types of messages (alert, warning, success and information) to ensure your users won’t miss the most important news.
And a ton more features and enhancements!
Releasing already 4 major features but wait… There is more! We added a new layout for our News component where you can display them in a more compact way, perfect to showcase all the news of a department or from a specific theme. Global navigation is enhanced to support better positioning of its items and we improved the My Tools columns management for users with a lot of personal links.
We also simplified the management of your intranet by introducing a full Configuration Manager WebPart where you will be able to add new intranets, new languages, change global settings, etc. On top of all those new features and improvements, we also squashed more than 125 bugs to improve the overall experience and bring new Modern features directly in our product!
