, it used to be free, but a few months ago (in July) went to a fee based only business model – can it survive and thrive? crashed and burned and had a ton of great features for small businesses who want to collaborate and communicate easily.
It’s sure trying with an update to its system:
“In our second major enhancement since we became a subscription service this past July, we continue a tradition,” said Karen Leavitt, vice president of marketing at “We’re adding a number of great new features – many of which can be traced back to customer suggestions. With the addition of a rich text editor, users can create announcements that include pictures, tables and colorful fonts. This new feature enables the creation of customized announcements and newsletters, two important ingredients in improved group collaboration and communication.”
The new home page customization options give users an additional way to tailor their intranet to individual needs, putting information of interest right at users’ fingertips for enhanced productivity. Users can now customize the layout of their home page, post important messages and images right on their site’s home page, and customize the content tabs at the top of their intranet.
Additional enhancements were made to the task manager application to make it easier to accomplish team goals and manage projects. In addition to the improved printable view, users can now track tasks by project and customize the project list so that when a task is delegated, a task owner can be assigned. Task action items can also be organized into categories – like meetings, phone calls, and goals – to make it simpler to figure out which ones to tackle first.
Enhancements to group scheduling functionality enables users to schedule events for a select group of members, building off the groups and permissions functionality that the company introduced nearly a year ago.
