Plek update: Flexible group collaboration and continuous learning
We are releasing an updated version of Plek today between 4 and 5 PM. This time, we're introducing a few new options for flexible group collaboration. We're also making the onboarding available in the app. Besides, with our new learning module, everyone can keep on learning on Plek - even after the onboarding period.
Flexible group collaboration
A Plek group can be open, private or secret. After the release, you will see some extra options when creating or editing groups.
A group admin of an open group will be able to allow non-members to publish posts or comments in the group.
Additionally, we're introducing the collaboration option. It can be enabled for all three types of groups, and it allows all group members (and not only the group admin) to edit group pages and documents. This way you can easily work on content together, creating a sort of wiki.
Existing groups on Plek will remain unchanged. If you'd like to use the aforementioned options, please edit your group's privacy settings.
Onboarding in the app
After the release, the welcoming screens we show new Plek users upon their first login will become available in the Plek app.
Please note: due to the Christmas break (also at Apple!), the updated Plek app will become available in January 2019.
Never stop learning
Obviously, employees need to keep learning in order to keep up - also after their onboarding period. That's why we're releasing a new learning module for Plek. It's an interactive variant of the information pages. Users can, for example, comment on lessons, rate lessons or save them for later.
Manage your information pages
After the release, the owner of an information page can edit the page. This means that the owner is no longer merely the point of contact for questions or remarks about the content: they're also the page admin. A content manager or admin can assign a page owner in the page settings. The owner doesn't have to be a content manager or admin themselves.
Last but not least, we made a small improvement for the information pages: after the release you'll be able to drag & drop sub pages to reorder them - just like main pages.
