New tools to bring the power of community to everyone at work

by Ujjwal Singh

At Workplace Transform North America, we're announcing some new and updated features. Discover how we’re building a future of work that works for everyone.

As the world begins to move on from the pandemic, there’s an enormous opportunity to build a new future of work.

But doing so means doing more than providing better technology for the people who’ve always had it. It will mean providing technology to the many millions of workers left behind by traditional IT. It will mean connecting the unconnected - especially frontline, deskless and email-less employees - to their colleagues and leaders for the first time.

Announcing new product features at Transform North America

There’s a long way to go on that journey. But as we continue to build tools that help employees make those connections, we’re one step closer to bringing the power of community to everyone at work. And at Workplace Transform North America, we announced some of the new features that will help us get there.

Missed the updates? Workplace Transform may be over for another year but that doesn’t mean you can’t relive the experience. Access the full event on-demand now right here or check out the new features in the video below.

Updates to Live video

A fine-tuned Q&A experience

Connect leaders and employees in meaningful two-way conversations when you go Live, through a highly engaging Q&A experience.

New comments and question filters make sure your hosts don’t miss any questions and everyone can follow the conversation. Net result? All your employees feel seen and heard.

Video chapters

Not everyone can tune in for the Q&A, and others will no doubt want to watch again. We’re introducing machine learning technology to automatically add Video Chapters to your Live and pre-recorded videos.

This helps people signpost video content when they share it and enables viewers to jump to the sections of the video they’re most interested in.

You can also duplicate a prior incident to send the same message if there’s a ‘next time.’ And admins will be able to track message responses via mobile. Learn how right here.
