Auto-Save FunctionalityThere is no character limitation in Communote and so even longer information snippets can be managed there. For example many users write short meeting protocols right into their project microblog. Especially for such use cases the new auto-save functionality was designed. It makes sure that problems with your internet connection or a problem with the browser does not lead to a loss of important information: the text is saved in the background and is restored automatically.
IP Range FilterUsing this new functionality you can restrict access to your Communote to certain IP ranges. With the IP range filter you can control your company’s information flow even better.
Confluence IntegrationWhile Communote hosts the dynamic flow of information, wikis are very good in the joint creation and editing of documents. Our new Confluence plugin connects both worlds: you can show and create Communote postings right into Confluence wiki pages. An example use case is a project wiki with wiki sites for every sub-project (for static information like team members and tasks) including current micro-postings from Communote.
Other new functionality

Microblogging is a great tool for knowledge-intensive work environments. This is the case for academic research and education. One of our customers, the chair for Management Information Systems of Chemnitz University, was featured with a posting about educational microblogging on the well-known Touchbase-Blog last week.
The research group will attend the Educamp in Ilmenau (Germany) at the weekend and discuss innovative concepts for education. This is a great chance to discuss microblogging with them and get the latest news on their microblogging experiences.
