New IBM Connections Desktop Plug-Ins for Mac and Windows

View Comments
Today, we've released our monthly update to the IBM Connections Mac and Windows desktop plug-ins. I'll cover some of the updates here and will start with Mac since that's what I use.

In this release, the context menu in Finder has been updated to streamline access to the IBM Connections actions. Now, when you right click on a synced file, you can see when it was last synced, share with individuals or groups, lock/unlock, modify metadata and more. Here's a snapshot of how it looks. 

For those of you in Windows, we have improved the experience when saving files directly to IBM Connections from Microsoft Office. From the Save As menu within Microsoft Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel) it'll be a lot easier to pick where specifically you want to store files (e.g. in what Folder, what Community, etc). See the screenshot below. And don't forget, when editing files, you can have round trip editing of files with IBM Docs when you are online or Microsoft Office when you are offline.

Windows 10 support has also been officially added. For those that like to live on the edge and have enabled preview features, you get some new stuff too. I'll leave that as an exercise for you to find it.

To get the plugins, go to Downloads and Setup in cloud, or if you are using on-premises, you can get the Windows plugin from our catalog here and the Mac plugin from here.
