Q3 2019 Enhancements & Features:

Topic Area Enhancements
Home page
  • You can now copy home pages, to use as a starting point for building other pages. A 'Copy' option has been added for this within the Home page edit menu.
Groups
  • You can now pin up to 48 groups as favorites, raised from the maximum of 10 earlier.
Widget
  • The Event widget will now provide a Monthly view layout option for improved visualization of events.
Content Translation
  • Users will now be shown a notification popup in Jam documents, regarding available translations to other languages.
    More details->
    • If you are using SAP Jam in one language and you open a document in another language, and if the same document also has a translation version in your chosen language, you receive a notification allowing a switch to that language version.
      For example-> When a Chinese user sees a link to an article in English, if a Chinese version of the article exists, the popup message will enable the user to switch to the Chinese version
Microsoft Sharepoint integration Several improvements have been introduced in the scope of Sharepoint integration -
  • The integration of Microsoft SharePoint Online with SAP Jam now enables group-level users to collaborate on the same documents.
    For instance, when one team works in Microsoft Teams and wants to share their content in SAP Jam. This also significantly reduces the effort for the administrators.
  • Administrators and group administrators can rename repositories on group level, to help users find relevant content under the expected name of the content management system, instead of under a repository generically named 'documents'. This also makes it easier for group admins to add the content folders.
  • The feed update shows the same use name as the name in the document view, which is the user name in Microsoft SharePoint. This also applies to both Box and Google Drive
Mobile
  • The Usage report now includes a new column which shows the last mobile app access time for the end user.
  • Jam admins can now disable Calendar Sync for the mobile app at a company level. Two new settings (for Android and iOS) for this have been added under Jam Admin Console -> Mobile section.
