    Zyncro Mail: add an email manager to your corporate Zyncro 

    Estimated reading time + video: 4 minutes

    At Zyncro we understand that email is not only one of the top corporate communication tools, but also one of the most time-consuming tasks each day. That’s why we’ve found a way to optimize email use and make it much easier to manage within a social environment.

    The ZyncroApp adds an email manager to your corporate Zyncro and allows each user to view their inbox and respond (send, reply, forward, mark as spam and delete emails) quickly and easily, without having to sign out of the Enterprise Social Network.

    Thanks to ZyncroMail, your email will be integrated into your work environment and all your corporate knowledge and information will be accessible from the same place.

    How do I start using ZyncroMail?

    To begin, your company administrator must enable the ZyncroApp from the Admin Panel. All users will then have the option of activating it by going to the right-hand menu on their Profile, where they will see the option to configure ZyncroMail.

    Increase interaction within your Enterprise Social Network by recommending users, groups, departments and companies 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    One of the most interesting benefits of an Enterprise Social Network is the access it provides to corporate knowledge and to the people you share interests, tasks and projects with. This amplifies shared knowledge improving the team management and productivity of groups and avoiding any duplication of work efforts.

    From today with this ZyncroApp you will be able to recommend users, groups, departments or the companies that you consider the most interesting to any of your contacts, thereby achieving greater interaction among all the members of your community, and thus getting more followers for the most relevant content.

    You can make a recommendation from different sections of the platform:

    • From your contact list, inside your profile section in Zyncro, you can also do it within the user’s profile that you want to recommend. For this, you must follow the user. Suggestionsfromusers1
    • From within the group, just for open groups in which you are a member.
    • From the list of companies or departments, or even from the very same page of the company or department, just if you are a member or a follower. Suggestionsfromusers2

    The recommendation will arrive through a private message to all the contacts you select.

    Drive unified communication in your company through Zyncro’s integration with Lync 

    Lync is Microsoft’s unified communications technology for enterprises. The system provides users with instant messaging and voice and video calls, all in one place, improving people’s connectivity and boosting productivity in organisations.

    Lync integration with Zyncro will make your teams communication more effective and cut costs.

    One of the core requirements of effective team collaboration is knowing which of your colleagues are working, connected and available. This is particularly essential for relocated organisations or companies with teams operating in different time zones.

    Following this integration, you will be able to see which people in your company are connected at all times—using both your Enterprise Social Network’s wall and your people directory—and start a conversation, a call or an online meeting with whoever you want from there.

    How does Zyncro’s integration with Lync work?

    To use this integration, you need to have Lync installed on the devices with which users access their corporate Zyncro. To set it up, the organisation’s administrator has to enable this ZyncroApp in the Admin Panel.

    Next, users have to configure it using their Zyncro corporate profile > Contact information. They can do this by entering their Lync username and selecting the “I have Lync client installed” checkbox.

    Improve your organisation’s decision-making with a smart data analysis system brought to you by Zyncro and BiyCloud 

    Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

    Despite the vast volumes of data that organisations have, few are yet able to extract knowledge from this information. This creates the need for advanced business intelligence tools that will let them capitalise on the power of their data when taking decisions.

    That’s why we’ve been working to integrate with BiyCloud Social Smart technology. If you want to find out what it’s all about and how it works, keep reading and we’ll tell you 😉

    BiyCloud Social Smart: A flexible, adaptable and mobile social dashboard

    By integrating BiyCloud Social Smart technology (based on QlikView technology) into Zyncro you can analyse the key indicators of social interactions occurring within an Enterprise Social Network and transform them into knowledge your company can use. 

    You’ll find out who the most active people are, who brings content to the network, what type of information is the most significant, how your employees relate to each other, what they talk about and which departments and groups record the highest level of activity.

    Key benefits of BiyCloud Social Smart:

    1. Adaptability: This integration provides companies with a flexible dashboard that users can configure, customise and adapt to their specific analytical needs, without having to constantly depend on the IT department.
    2. Multi-organisational: You can look up the figures of more than one organisation at the same time, viewing all their data from a single site, so that your comparisons and analyses are more comprehensive.
    3. Mobility: In addition, all the data are accessible from any mobile device.

    Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

    At Zyncro we are convinced that an Enterprise Social Network has to adapt itself to the business and the organization. With this new ZyncroApp, we offer a tool for making quick and easy tasks such as adding new employees, replicating the structure of the organization, attributing rights according to the position of the employee, creating working groups, etc.

    How to use the “Bulk User Management” ZyncroApp

    Once the ZyncroApp is activated by the administrator of the network, the button «”Import from CSV”» will automatically appear in the “User Management” section of the administration panel.

    This functionality allows you to fulfill the following operations:

    • Create or delete users
    • Add or remove users from the group
    • Add or remove users from a department
    • Add or remove users from an enterprise
    • Create groups
    • Create departments
    • Create enterprises

    Favorites 2.0 – Your Most Used Zyncro Entries Are Just a Click Away 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    As we make greater use of the Zyncro platform, we accumulate countless work groups, departments, files, contacts and messages. Thus, we run the risk of losing sight of the elements we use the most in our everyday work, the ones we access most frequently or the ones that are the most necessary to remember, either at a punctual point in time or over a given period of time.

    Therefore, we are convinced that by providing the possibility to personalize the entries will expedite access to tools and improve productivity.

    With this ZyncroApp you will be able to mark the people, groups, departments, messages or files that you frequently use, or are the most relevant, to later gain access to in a rapid manner from the top menu of your Zyncro. 

    Favorites 2.0 is the tool that allows you to have your most used entries in your Zyncro Enterprise with just a click of the mouse.

    Discover Who In Your Enterprise Social Network Has Seen Your Profile 

    Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

    Thanks to this new Zyncro feature, you will be able to check out who has viewed your profile within your Enterprise Social Network and on what day they viewed it. With this ZyncroApp you will have a new tool to know what information of which you share in your network is the most useful or interesting to other members.   

    Check out who has visited your profile, at what moment, and pull out the conclusions of what content you shared that generated interest, or what influence the messages you publish have in the number of visits you receive.  

    To use this application, the administrator must first enable it from the Admin Panel> ZyncroApps.

    Once the app is enabled, you can already start using it. Just access to your profile section in Zyncro and see who has seen your profile recently by browsing the displayed list that will show you all the visitors chronologically, starting with the most recent visitor first. You will see which users have recently viewed your profile, both if they are inside your organization or even if they are from another company, the latter only if they also have this ZyncroApp enabled.

    In addition, from this very section you will have the ability to directly access the profiles of those who have seen or visited your own profile. You can do this by clicking on their user name or on the ‘View Profile’ button that you will find directly on the right side.

Having an accessible organization chart that reflects the organization by your company’s departments, the individuals who form part of the company and their functions will help employees to always be clear in who is in charge of what and who they can turn to for each appropriate subject.  

    At Zyncro, we are conscientious of the importance of this information to be available to your organization, up to date and easily accessible to all members in your Enterprise Social Network. Thus we present to you today the ZyncroApp Organization Chart. Keep reading and we will tell you how it works 😉

    Zyncro Tags – Sort Your Organization’s Knowledge in a Collaborative Way by using Tags 

    Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

    The ZyncroApp Tags will allow you to structure the knowledge of your organization collaboratively, this is thanks to the tags that the members of your Enterprise Social Network may add to each message they post. With Tags you will be able to find in your Enterprise Social Network relative information of topics that interest you more quickly, detect trends or subject matter within your organization and review the conversation that is generated around them in any given moment.  

    Adding a tag to any message is as simple as typing the “#” symbol, and then the word will serve as a tag within the same message, you can also select and activate the “tags” section in your Zyncro and include the terms that you want to use as tags. Furthermore, by making use of this section, the system will provide tag suggestions, previously used in your Enterprise Social Network, that match the text being typed.

    ZyncroApp Tags

    The tags that the members of your organization use, in time will form a tag cloud that will be displayed in the right sidebar of your Zyncro, and you will be able to classify them into families according to their theme or type.

    In addition, users can subscribe to tags or families that interest them, and so each message labeled with the term to which they have subscribed will be displayed in their Activity Stream (Home section) and, if desired, they will receive a notification that a new message has been posted (options: “Follow” and “Follow and notify”).
