News statistics, graphs, chat improvements, and more!
February is the shortest month of the year. Yet there is so many things to celebrate: Valentine's Day, Super Bowl, the start of the Lunar New Year celebrations, and of course our new Viadesk update!
To connect you even better in your daily work routine, new features were added to your Viadesk platform last night. Would you like to know what exactly has changed? Then keep on reading!
News statistics and data visualization
Data is beautiful – it can inspire and bring out the best in people. We therefore present a new News Statistics screen. You can find it by going to the dropdown next to the "News" menu item and selecting the "News statistics" item. The news editing team can now visualize the number of new articles, likes and comments (replies) in an insightful graph that gives a quick overview of your engagement performance.
In addition, a list view has been added for every news article. It shows Views, Replies, Likes, and Dislikes. This information can be interpreted easily and be used for a variety of purposes, such as for reports.
Improved Chat Functions
Direct communication, like a chat between colleagues, is key to a healthy organization. We therefore improved our chat functions regarding chat speed, an improved view on small screen android phones as well as adding a time stamp to your individual messages in the chat history. For even more engagement and to simply stay in contact.
