Our new features and improvements – 4.28 release summary

We released Invotra 4.28 on Wednesday 13th March 2019.

In this release we have worked to improve the user experience for all of our users, making it easier for all to find and view the content they need. Additionally publishing teams will have a clearer and simpler view of any changes they make. We also included tasks to fix bugs and make operational improvements.

Spelling suggestions added to search

Search update to offer users a suggested spelling when no result is found

Spelling suggestions have now been added to search, which will appear and provide alternative suggestions for a keyword, to avoid a search returning no results.

Preview option for the IPE

Preview option for site section publishers to view changes before publication

We have added a preview option for the IPE to quickly show what the edited page, or site section would look like when saved to save editors and webmasters time in building and making changes to their intranet content.

Attachments for group comments

Attachment added to a comment in a group

Users replying to a group post or poll with comments now have option to add attachments to their comments. This was previously only available in the initial group post or poll.

Engagement reports expanded

Additional activity statistics aded to our engagement statistic page for administrators

We have added data to our engagement reports page to allow administrators to see new users created and accessed in a month, those who accessed the site on 4 or more days or 3 or less days. These counts will be available to monitor how active users are.

Removed obsolete and redundant widgets from the IPE.

Widget option page for content creation

We have improved the experience for webmasters and publishing teams configuring their content pages by removing any obsolete or redundant widgets.

UI updates to the look and feel of the product

Standardised card styles shown on the message wall homepage

We have standardised areas that display content and actions (card styles) across the Invotra product to ensure content is easy to scan for relevant and actionable information.

Deployment maintenance screen on all pages

Down for maintenance screen applied to all pages in the 4.28 release

During deployments a maintenance screen will now be shown on all pages instead of only on the homepage, to improve communication for all users.
