This week's release:
Global | Employee Communications | Added option for assigning blog contributors
We've added a third option in the list of default permissions that can be assigned to everyone on a blog. Now, blogs have three options: everyone can blog, only those specified can blog, or everyone can blog but posts need approval.
This will allow clients to give everyone in their organization the ability to participate in writing blog content whilst retaining control of when the content gets published. Admins can still keep a schedule of when they have content going live, but they do not need to do all of the blog authoring on their own.
Global | Employee Communications | Blog counter pop-up improvement
Recently we released a status popup on a published blog to show the status of any alerts being sent out, typically when there is an announcement marked to go out on a blog.
This week, we have made a small but important improvement by adding a tooltip with further explanation for email alerts as well as a link to a Success Portal article on the bottom to direct a client to information about allowing emails through with IP and Domain settings.
This will help clients further understand the status of their alerts going out on blogs, as well as give them actions to take if it doesn't seem that something is working correctly.
