Announcing the IBM Connections 4.0 Plug-ins for Notes

View Comments
I'm pleased to announce that we have just released the latest IBM Connections 4.0 plug-ins for Notes.  Unlike previous releases, we've now combined all of the Notes plug-ins into a single install.

Here's a highlight of some of the new and enhanced features:

  • NEW: attach a file to a status update
  • NEW: like / unlike a status update
  • NEW: Activity stream integration allows to monitor updates for all Connections services
  • NEW: search by people and communities
  • NEW: Lock/unlock files
  • NEW: Connections 4.0 style UI (improved formatting and layout, enlarged images, additional content including like and comment counts).
  • View status updates for your colleagues, communities or organization (support for "Discover" view).
  • View your board or someone else's board.
  • NEW:  Microblogging within a community
  • NEW:  Post a file as attachment along with posting a Status Update.
  • Support for Linux desktops

I believe that these plug-ins are extremely important in helping drive the adoption of the IBM Social Business platform.  A lot of customers have been re-iterating how powerful these plug-ins are since they bring the power of social to the end user, instead of forcing the user to learn a new interface and collaborate in a different context.

If you haven't seen the plug-in in action yet, I'll be posting a demo movie later. For now, here's a screenshot that I took last year and will be sharing more later this week:

You can download the plug-ins from our App Catalog as usual here.
