The newest release of 4th Office shows off a few of our most requested features. You have spoken and we hear you loud and clear! Highlighting the new release is a our new chat, improvements to document editing, and slight changes to the left-hand menu.
While the updates may appear small there is a lot going on under the hood. Starting with the left-hand menu you’ll notice that My Desk is expanded by default giving you easy access to the features you use most. You’ll also notice a new addition - Chats.
In our attempt to revolutionize the way your business communicates we realized chat will play an important role. Chat provides a perfect form of instant communication that also ensures that your Feed is free from clutter.
You can easily navigate to our new chat via the left-hand menu. Alternatively, if a colleague initializes the chat with you then their avatar will appear in the lower right hand corner. Just click the picture and there is no need to leave your current work space.
No longer do documents have to be the first item in a discussion to be editable. Everyone is a winner at 4th Office – whether you wish to edit the first document or the very last document of a discussion. Just pay close attention to the automatically generated comments when someone edits a document, this could potentially make previous comments in the discussion irrelevant.
Stay tuned for more new features!
