IBM Connections Cloud enhancements for October 2016

Tags :

IBM has released what's new for IBM Connections Cloud for October 2016. Here is some of the updates.

SmartCloud Notes web and IBM Verse

Unsupported browser warning message

We plan to enable a new warning message, October 2016.  When someone is using an unsupported browser to access IBM SmartCloud Notes web or IBM Verse, a warning message will be displayed at the top of the browser as soon as the unsupported version is detected.  The message will say, "It looks like your browser might not give you the best experience.Click here for a list of supported browsers."  Users will be able to close the warning message to get it out of the way.  The unsupported browser warning message could be displayed before the user interface fully loads.  It will display each time the user loads or reloads the page, and it will display in tear-off windows.

On or after November 19, 2016, there will be an additional impact to someone using an unsupported version of Microsoft Internet Explorer (earlier than IE11) in particular with SmartCloud Notes web.  Users with browsers earlier than Internet Explorer 11 will see the new unsupported browser warning message and SmartCloud Notes web will not work.  Users will notice they can no longer access SmartCloud Notes web from the navbar.  We strongly encourage you to upgrade end users with unsupported versions of Internet Explorer to avoid any interruption of mail for those users, and to upgrade all end users to the supported browsers for Connections Cloud, for the best experience.

IBM Connections Cloud Inform App

The IBM Connections Cloud Inform app (available now)

The IBM Connections Cloud Inform (IBM Inform) is a free app, for  Apple® iOS and for Android™ mobile devices, which provides the real time status of the IBM Connections Cloud service. The app is available for IBM Connections Cloud clients, targeted to Administrators and Help desk personnel in all three IBM Connections Cloud geographies. The app provides information at the individual service component level (i.e. Verse, Meetings, Traveler, etc.) and will send push notifications from IBM as status changes.
