IBM Connections Cloud November 2015 Release is Now Live !

View Comments
It's a new month, so we have a new monthly release of our IBM Connections Cloud platform now available! This release focuses on improvements to files and our mobile capabilities. 

To start off, if you are using the Mac file sync plug-in, you now have more visibility to understand the status of sync for each file directly from the Mac Finder:

On the mobile side, we've now made it easier to respond and participate in polls & surveys created in Communities:

This will require a mobile app update which will be in the app stores soon!  

The other component that got many upgrades is IBM Docs. First off, the maximum number of co-editors in a co-editing session increased from 10 to 20. Of course, you can still share a file with as many editors as you want. Check out the updates to the different editors:

  • In co-editing, you can hover over an editor's underlined changes to display his or her name. 
  • Orphan and widow control in paragraph breaks, accessed from the Format > Paragraph Properties menu.
