This page gives an overview of the functionality that comes with Quaive. This is at the same time the roadmap for future versions of the Plone Intranet Community Edition.
Quaive 1.2 – Mars
Quaive 1.2 Mars is the current release which is used on customer projects right now. This page describes the features contained in this release.
Beautifully designed internal communication. Get the latest news of your company in a magazine like style. Fully managed from within the intranet and always catching attention.
9 in 10 managers have used outdated slides in their presentation. Never again! Collect and download the latest slides maintained by the responsible departments.
Bookmark anything that is of interest to you and it will be on your dashboard. No longer interesting? Remove the bookmark. The app gives you the full overview.
Registration numbers, sector codes, archive tags – you name it. Whatever you use in your organisation, the Taxonomy Browser shows content according to your taxonomy.
Projects and Milestones
The Project and Milestone content features of Quaive makes it easy to plan and track your working results step by step.
Changes are now saved automatically as you work. One less thing to worry about.
Splash Pages on Login
You want to communicate something important to your users? Point to a new training programme? Use Splash pages that show only once on login.
PDF Versions for all content available
All content in Quaive has generated previews. Now all content also has a PDF version readily available as soon as it is uploaded.
Content can be versioned. Do you want to keep a state for later reference? Make sure you can revert in case of error? Just click to create a version.
Email-In directly into workspaces
With the digital workplace, we aim to reduce the amount of email. But you will still get a lot of it. Just forward it to your workspace and continue work there.
Projects and Milestones
Do you want to model an ad-hoc process in your team? Do you need to track a long running project which does not fit into any of the predefined company processes? Then cases are perhaps too strict for your situation. Projects and Milestones allows you to shape your workspace with your own milestones and lets you place tasks where they fit. You need more milestones? Just add them. You have a delay? Move your milestone duration. You want to see if you’re on time? Just look at the metro map!
ICS calendar export to Outlook
Don’t maintain events twice. Just subscribe to your intranet calendars in your Outlook or Apple calendar to stay up to date.
Support for external apps
An intranet does many things, but not everything. Connect external tools easily on the apps overview to have it all at one glance.
LDAP and Active Directory Support
Connect your intranet to your companies user directory, be it LDAP or Active Directory. Use data from there and supply with more information locally.
Fully Synced Users and GroupsQuaive can fully synchronize users and groups to become nearly fully independent of a central directory for speed.
Massive Speed improvements and optimisations
We have implemented speed improvements in all sections of quaive and optimized for quick page loads. Modern UI techniques are used to only load what really needs to change. And difficult tasks are dispatched to a background queue for delayed processing. The code has been thoroughly checked to remove inefficient calls and prevent the transfer of unnecessarily large files. Improved batching ensures that only the data which a user can see and interact with is transferred.
Automatic downscaling for small bandwidth connections
Where people are working in remote locations, download speed can still be an issue. Be it faulty connections, slow mobile speed or working on a train in Germany – not everyone always has a quick connection. Quaive has a way to detect a user’s current bandwidth and can automatically scale the UI down to low fidelity – scaling up again when the connection improves.
If many people work together, one can’t know everything. Sometimes you just need to be able to trace what happened with a piece of content. Audit log lets you do that.
Import / Export Support by Data Migration
Quaive comes with a dedicated migration queue that allows you to move your structured content in. The only thing left to do is to get an export of your old data and to find out what should go where in Quaive.
Optimised search, boosting results by age
Intranet content has a tendency to stick around long after it is useful and relevant. Quaive search can boost results – and by default it boosts recent content which leads to a much improved search experience.
Enhanced user management
Manage all your users within quaive. Even the ones coming from an exernal user directory like LDAP or Active Directory.
