To start June well, new features were added to your Viadesk platform last night. Microsoft 365 users now get even more out of the integration with Viadesk. Furthermore, this update makes it easier to find and add images to news articles. Would you like to know what exactly has changed? Then keep on reading!
Create Teamsites in Viadesk
Microsoft 365 users are probably familiar with Teamsites. These are the handy groups in which documents can be shared. As of today, it is possible to create these groups directly within Viadesk. To create a Teamsite in Viadesk, go to the corresponding Sharepoint group. Under 'Add' click 'Teamsite'. On the screen that appears you will see a big button with 'Create Teamsite'. Click on it and you're done!
Find and use images easily
Finding the right images to complement a text can be tricky. Fortunately, this is now easier when you edit a news article in Viadesk. On the right side of the screen you will find the new option to add images. Within Viadesk this option gives you direct access to Pexels, an online database with thousands of beautiful pictures. All for free!
