It’s time to announce another Valo Release, the award-winning Intranet solution for Office 365 and SharePoint: 1.14, Diamond Dust!
This time we have a completely new version of our famous Teamwork module, in addition to continuously improving the Publishing Intranet module.
Teamwork 2.0- bringing together your collaboration tools
Office 365 is a great collaboration platform, providing users many different tools for different needs. Project teams can use SharePoint, Yammer, OneDrive, Planner, Teams… But how to get an overview over all of your groups? And how to manage the team creation process, with templating, metadata tagging and approval?
New Valo Teamwork is a complete collaboration solution, bringing together all those separate collaboration tools, enabling a universal metadata model for all teams, and including a managed process for team room creation.
Valo Teamwork 2.0 also includes full support for customized Modern SharePoint Site templates. We support the Office Patterns and Practices templates. Meaning that you can choose from among the existing site templates created by the community, or work with your own templates.
We are super proud to announce that the new Teamwork is technically 100% done with SharePoint Framework!
New Valo Teamwork 2.0 is the glue between the different islands of collaboration in the Office 365 platform.

The Publishing Intranet & My Tools
Beside continuously improving the Publishing Intranet side of Valo, we have been able to also further improve the My Tools feature based on the great customer feedback we’ve received. My Tools enables administrators to manage a list of links to company tools and applications, and end users to pick up their favorites from among that list. End users can also add their personal links, which makes this a complete link management tool.
Arigato! Better language support than ever
Valo is now installable out-of-the-box in 17 languages in total. New languages are Japanese, Polish, and Romanian.
