Massive Update / KP 3.5

by Thomas Moreau

If there is one feature you should notice, it is undoubtedly the one related to spaces and the noteworthy release of what we call smart tabs.
Besides the usual tabs available by default, space administrators can create smart tabs that will display content meeting specific criteria: tag-based filters, content of a specific format, embedded Web pages … A set of tabs to reorganize and valorize shared information within a space.

New spaces. New uses.

If there is one feature you should notice, it is undoubtedly the one related to spaces and the noteworthy release of what we call smart tabs.
Besides the usual tabs available by default, space administrators can create smart tabs that will display content meeting specific criteria: tag-based filters, content of a specific format, embedded Web pages … A set of tabs to reorganize and valorize shared information within a space.
To understand how they work and what new perspectives these tabs offer in terms of content structuring, we recommend you have a look at following video.

Uploading and editing files. Locally or in the cloud.

The top bar now distinguishes file uploading from any other content sharing option. Uploading a file is as easy as 1,2,3. Just drag & drop your file from any folder or from your desktop. But what is really outstanding is that KP now integrates Cloud services: DropBox, Google Drive and SkyDrive. Log in to your favorite service, select the file you want to share, and voila.

Furthermore, Knowledge Plaza also allows content editing using Microsoft Office for all usual editable files, generating a new version of the shared source each time you save it.

Integration with Google Drive goes deeper. You can now

  • upload a file from Google Drive,
  • save a file from KP to Google Drive,
  • edit a file stored in KP using Google Drive,
  • export a file from Google Drive to KP.

If you would like to activate this integration, ping us at support@knowledgeplaza.net or via Sphere where you can also come and test it!

Collections enriched with galleries.

Collections – these knowledge capsules allowing contributors to assemble text blocks and references to shared sources – now gets a new kind of block: file galleries. Just create your block, drag & drop your files (pictures, documents, etc.), rename their description, and save. Then let others enjoy browsing shared files in a distinctive viewer.
