    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.

    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.

    Zyncro releases app in HootSuite App Directory allowing you to manage internal network alongside external networks 

    Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

    As new Product Marketing Director, I’d like to present to you the result of the collaboration between two leading international companies committed to innovation and social media, each from their own perspective. You already know Zyncro, but have you met HootSuite?

    HootSuite is a social media management system for businesses and organizations to collaboratively execute campaigns across multiple social networks. Its web-based dashboard is ideal for managing all your social networks from a single place. It doesn’t matter if they are your personal profiles or your company’s profiles: HootSuite lets you read, post and schedule messages while monitoring everything said about you in different platforms. With more than 6 million users across six continents, HootSuite processes 3 million messages each day.

    In their own words, “HootSuite helps teams to reach their audiences and analyze campaigns through multiple social networks like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ Pages from a secure web-based dashboard.”

    HootSuite has an App Directory that features a collection of apps and tools users can add to their dashboard for a customized experience. In addition to managing campaigns on networks like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Google+, users can also manage campaigns and content on other social channels such as Instagram, YouTube, Tumblr and Flickr, among many others.

    Now you can integrate your Enterprise Social Network Zyncro in HootSuite and make it even more social. Go to the HootSuite App Directory, install the Zyncro app and connect your account today.

    How do I start?

    It’s quick and easy to get setup. If you have a HootSuite account, log in and install the Zyncro app. If you do not have a HootSuite account, sign up here. Once installed, enter your Zyncro username and password, as if you were logging in on your Zyncro portal page. From that moment on, you can follow your feeds, comment or delete messages, view user profiles, or even schedule the posting of a message to your wall. All this can be done from the same dashboard where you control your personal LinkedIn page, the company’s Facebook page, or while you monitor Twitter feeds.

    The HootSuite interface, based on a column-viewing system, provides a great feature if you’re a Zyncro fan. You can view content from several feeds simultaneously: personal feed, corporate feed or the stream from specific groups or departments you follow or belong to. In a single click, HootSuite provides you with a new way of viewing and interacting with Zyncro!

    And if that weren’t enough, the best thing about this collaboration between HootSuite and Zyncro is that there is no extra cost!

    If you are already a HootSuite user, add the Zyncro app to your dashboard. And if you don’t currently have a HootSuite account, sign up and start to enjoy yet another way to work with Zyncro.

    Joan Villalta is Product Marketing Director at Zyncro. He has been working in IT since 1988, where he has intensively participated in both sales and product design in innovative companies like NTRglobal, Panda Software or more recently, Addfleet.

    Unpack your company’s knowledge in your Enterprise Social Network: Dropbox now integrates in Zyncro! 

    Estimated reading time + video: 6 minutes

    We’ve taken a new step towards making the platform even better: Zyncro offers you integrated access to Dropbox. This new integration joins the Google Drive integration as a tool for managing files. Soon we will announce new applications that will make Zyncro, if it is not already, the central management plaform for all your organization’s knowledge.

    How does the Dropbox integration in Zyncro work?

    The Dropbox integration ZyncroApp must be enabled by the organization’s administrator in the ZyncroApps section in the Admininstration Panel.

    As a user, you need to access the right menu in your Profile > Dropbox Integration.

    Once there, it will ask you to connect your Dropbox account with Zyncro. If you click ok, you will access a new window in Dropbox where you need to:

    • First, enter your Dropbox user data
    • Second, accept the connection between Dropbox and Zyncro

    Once you have accepted the connection, you’ll receive a notification mail in the email account associated with Dropbox and the integration will be complete. You can then start to use Dropbox in your Enterprise Social Network.

    Linking a work group to Dropbox

    To link a work group to Dropbox, you need to go to the Files & Groups > Create New Group section, and in the new tab, accept the link with your Dropbox account.


    Managing Dropbox files from Zyncro

    Within a work group in Zyncro linked to Dropbox, you need to select Manage Files. A window will open where you can select the files and folders you want to link with Dropbox. Once selected, click Accept and the files will be synchronized with your Dropbox account.

    Uploading files to Dropbox from Zyncro

    To upload files to Dropbox, you need to click Upload File and then select the files you want to upload. The file will be uploaded to the work group in Zyncro and to your Dropbox account also. When you upload files directly to your Dropbox account, they will be also synchronized with the Zyncro group; to sync them, you need to exit and then access the group again.

    Deleting files in Zyncro

    You can delete the files in the work group in Zyncro but they will continue to be accessible in your Dropbox account. However, if you delete them in your Dropbox account, they will also be deleted in the Zyncro group.

    Creating folders from Zyncro

    To create a new folder, click New Folder and enter the name and description. This new folder and the files you add to it will be synchronized with your Dropbox account.

    Changing file names in Dropbox

    You cannot change the names of files associated with a Dropbox account from Zyncro. However, in Dropbox –in a folder synchronized with a Zyncro work group– if you change the file name, this change will also be reflected in Zyncro.

    We’ll leave you with a presentation video in which you can see how this integration works more interactively.

    Start to enjoy the new Dropbox integration! Connect your accounts and share files!

     If you need more information, write to us at sales (@) zyncro.com or call us on +34 93 187 03 22 and we’ll tell you all about it.

    Optimized direct access to key groups for your company: Featured Groups 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes


    We’re proud to present new ZyncroApp: Featured Groups.

    Much is spoken about infoxication or information overload these days: from the moment we wake up until we go to bed, we are constantly bombarded with information. As Joan Alvares said in his post, Surviving the infoxication: I read so much that I don’t have time to think about what I read, and less still apply it to my business. To avoid this excess of information. Are we infoxicated in our own companies too? Well yes, it’s something inevitable but it can be improved. At Zyncro as we see things, as within Zyncro a great number of work groups can be created, part of the information that should reach you may get lost along the way. In fact, I’m sure there are some groups that no member of the organization should lose sight of.

    Our Enterprise Social Network offers more and more tools for classifying and optimzing information. On this occasion, the new Featured Groups ZyncroApp will enable the organization administrator to…

    create a list of the groups that are important and that should be accessible directly for all organization members

    …and improve productivity regarding information access.

    How do the Featured Groups work?

    The organization administration must enable it in the Administration Panel > ZyncroApps > tured Groups > Configure, then select the groups, up to a maximum of 15 to create a direct access for the rest of the organization’s members (who will see them provided they are members of the group). Once the definitive list is configured, they can be sorted as appropriate for the company.

    From now on, all members of your organization can see Featured Groups and a description of each one to the right of the wall, and although only 5 are shown by default, you can always expand the list by clicking “Show more”.

    What are you waiting for to select your Featured Groups and activate the ZyncroApp? I’m sure all members of your organization will thank you for being a little less infoxicated. Try it now! 😉

    Google Drive: Your Google documents now in Zyncro 

    Estimated reading time: 7 minutes

    Zyncro and Google are more united than ever with a new integration: files stored online with Google Drive will be available directly in specific groups in your Zyncro.

    Thanks to new integrations, Zyncro is becoming the only platform you need, saving time as you no longer have to open several tools to stay up-to-date with everything happening inside and outside your company’s walls. With this idea, we are proud to present the third ZyncroApp that completes the Zyncro-Google integration trilogy: Google Drive. A few weeks ago we launched our integration with Gmail and for almost a year now the Google Calendar ZyncroApp has been available.

    Proper document management is a key issue for optimizing resources in any company. Organizations that have made the step towards the 2.0 world probably use different online document systems for their files. There are several platforms that enable document management and probably more than one are used in the company, but wouldn’t it be more efficient to be able to access all those systems in a single platform?? Zyncro is the solution.

    Zyncro lets you access your online documents, even those that are not hosted on the platform, from your Enterprise Social Network in a single click: from now on, you can create new Google Drive work groups that enable you to manage, edit and share your files quickly and effectively.

    This integration with Google Drive is the first step towards Zyncro integration with online file management systems, other leading systems are soon to follow…


    How does Google Drive in Zyncro work?

    To start using this integration, you just have to follow these simple steps: like the other ZyncroApps, your organization’s administrator needs to enable it in the ZyncroApps section of the Administration Panel. This integration is available for Business accounts.

    Next, access the right menu of your Profile > Google Drive Integration. A screen will appear to “Connect with Google Drive”.

    After clicking this connection option, follow these steps:

    • Enter your username (or Gmail address) and password and click on ‘Enable access’ for Zyncro to your Google account. Once you’ve entered your Google details the first time, the registration screen won’t appear again.
    • If you have several Google accounts, all of them will appear, so you’ll have to select the account you wish to connect. Remember you don’t have to connect Zyncro with Google Calendar, Gmail and Google Drive using the same account.
    Create a group linked to Google Drive

    From now on, the groups you create can store files found on your computer or Google Drive documents. The groups linked to Google Drive are differentiated from ordinary ones, as they will have the Google icon on the group list.

    To create a group linked to Google Drive (with access to those documents you choose), when creating a new group you need to mark the “Group linked with Google Drive” checkbox.

    To link your Google Drive files with this new group, go to the Files section and click Manage Files. There you can see all your Google Drive documents and select and unselect those that you want to be linked to the Zyncro group.

    From now on, all documents that are uploaded from Google Drive in the folders linked to Zyncro will automatically appear in your Enterprise Social Network.

    • Regarding permissions for documents and/or folders, they are the same as those defined in Google Drive; for that reason, remember that to open a document, you need to have permissions to view it in Google Drive. If you don’t, you can ask the document owner for permissions directly from Google.
    • You’ll be up-to-date with any changes in the files stored on Google Drive as each time a document is created or changed, a message will appear on your wall in the same way as with other files in your Zyncro.
    • What’s more, you can use theGoogle Drive synchronizer and Zyncro integration to store and synchronize all the files on your computer with your applications on the cloud.
    • Now in search results, there is a new tab, GDrive, that shows you the search results for Google Drive files synchronized with Zyncro that you have permissions for.

    Start to enjoy Google Drive in your Zyncro. Google is zyncronized! What about you? Try it now! :-)
