Feature Updates: May 2014
Check out Socialcast’s newest feature additions for the month of May*:
1. Set Profile Photo Using HD Webcam
A few months ago we introduced a feature that allows new members of a community to create their profile photo using their webcam using a Chrome or Firefox browser. We decided to enhance that functionality by utilizing the Chrome browser’s High Definition feature of the webcam to produce a more detailed photo. A user’s profile photo captured from their HD webcam in Chrome can now have a maximum resolution of 720px by 720px. Full resolution photos can be viewed by clicking on the thumbnail photo on a user’s profile page.
2. New Share Form For Profile Pages
Communicating with people from profile pages just got a lot easier! Starting in May, there will be a share form on all profile pages. Clicking the Update, Question, Thanks, or Idea tab will automatically add an @mention of the person’s profile you’re viewing. NOTE: Any comments made on a user’s profile page will be visible to anyone who follows you or your @mentioned colleague.
3. Join Button Added to Challenge Announcements
We have made improvements to our ideation tool to make it more accessible. Once a new Challenge is created and an announcement is made in the stream, we added a ‘Join’ button as part of the announcement so community members can easily participate in new Challenges.
*Please note that On-Premise clients will receive these features in a future release.
