Citrix Integration
We've improved our Citrix integration. We now better support a single sign-on setup. Please contact us if you need more information.

Groups Feature Toggle
You can now choose which features you want to enable in the Groups Widget and Groups App. If you don't wan't to use teams or group conversations, you can disable these features.

Microsoft office 365 Groups or Microsoft Teams (or both?)
In the Groups Settings tab of the Groups Widget you can now choose whether you want to see the Microsoft office 365 Groups or Microsoft Teams or both.

We've made an adjustment so that these Teams are now shown in the Groups and Teams Widget again. Before this change a Team was also a group and had the group capabilities, such as Conversations, Calendar and People. This is for these 'Team only' teams no longer the case. As a result you will see less features in the widget

Permissions on widgets
We've extended our permission model to now include widgets as well. This way you can show/hide a widget for certain security groups. This as an improvement when you apply multiple audiences

The search results of the knowledgebase now display a portion of the found text, to give you a better context of why this result is shown. Also, when opening a search result, all questions are opened containing your search query so you no longer have to poke around to see which question contains your desired answer.

Custom link and widget colors
In the CMS you can now choose the colors inline links will have, for example the links in news articles or links in the knowledgebase. It is also possible to change the color of widget titles.

We now enable you to track user ids, check out this article to learn more. Note that we apply an one way encryption algorithm, to obfuscate the semantic part of the username. In simple terms. It is not possible identify the actual person based on this information. We do keep the domain part of the userID in tact, so if you have multiple domains (e.g. and you can see a distinction between them..

Show the time in the Greetings Widget
If you want to see the time as well in the greetings widget, you can add a custom property named showTime and with the value true for the Greetings Widget in the CMS. The widget will show and update the time.
