    Zyncro is symbiotic 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    Source: via Pam on Pinterest

    When I studied natural science when I was kid, they explained the different type of relationships that occurred in the natural world. I remember they talked about parasitism, commensalism and symbiosis. Parasitism is a relationship in which one organism benefits while the other is harmed. In commensalism, one benefits and the other doesn’t, but the second isn’t affected by the relationship either. Symbiosis is a win-win state, where both organisms benefit from the relationship.

    The examples were rather interesting, the crocodile who opened its jaws so that some birds could clean the remains of its meal. There was an unwritten agreement: I’ll clean your teeth, you give me food and don’t eat me; if you eat me, go try to find another dentist!

    I saw how that among different species there were also affective symbiotic relationships… Is it love? Perhaps… If not, tell the two beings in the photo, or can’t you see that mutual wellbeing in those faces?

    Over time, I read that some sources call the three forms of relationship “symbiosis”, and the win-win relationship, more specifically mutualism. It doesn’t matter to me. I’ve kept to the first interpretation of the symbiotic system as one that provides benefits to both organisms when I say that Zyncro is a symbiotic application.

    I came to that conclusion after analyzing and understanding Zyncro.

    Its concept to add applications via ZyncroApps enables you to benefit from other systems and those other systems benefit from a greater number of users who, encouraged by Zyncro, decide to try these new applications.

    It’s neither efficient or intelligent to try to do what others do well, but it does make sense to take advantage of their specialization to build an application that provides greater value for all.

    Just look at the long list of own functions found in Zyncro, we could also say it is…

    A manager for projects, workflows, email, events, calendars, surveys, online meetings, public microblogging, an open social network for contacts and another for professional contacts, an external noticeboard, a translator, an online viewer, a note manager, access analytics, viewer for different contents… in short, a synchronizer, and in a not-too-distant future, a great many more functions… Developing? No, symbiosing… (yes, I’ve just coined that word)

    New ZyncroApp: Your organization’s statistics as graphics 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    Organizing, controlling and planning what happens daily in an organization is the main function of new business management systems. Nowadays, companies produce a vast quantity of data that is stored often without knowing exactly what to do with it all. For this reason, it is essential to have systems that classify that data, especially as graphs (infographics, statistics, etc.) that help us to understand our company, both inside and out.

    What are the most active work groups in your company? How many messages are posted each day? From yesterday, you can measure and get information on the actions performed in your Enterprise Social Network with the new ZyncroApp: Organization Statistics, a small BI tool available for all accounts, even free ones, that tackles the Zyncro Data Warehouse to offer organization administrators data in graph, infographic and statistic form within the Administration Panel that can help them analyze the usage of your Enterprise Social Network in your company over the last three months.

    What data can you get in the Organization Statistics?
    Analytics
    • Number of daily logins versus the total number of users

    • Number of files uploaded

    • Number of messages posted

    • Level of participation in groups, expressed as a percentage of the total number of groups (the number of messages posted in each of the groups in your organization is taken)

    Infographics
    • Total number of users. How many have logged in during the last week and how many of those have actually participated with a comment

    • Total number of “Likes” and statistics on the number of users who give them

     

    • How users relate to each other and their participation in groups

    If you use analytics to optimize your web… well what are you waiting for to do the same in your Enterprise Social Network?! Activate the Organization Statistics ZyncroApp!! 😉

    Join Zyncro! Now online meetings in Zyncro with join.me 

    Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

    Online meetings have become all important in the communication processes in any organization.

    Among the several applications that enable these connections, one that is gaining momentum on the business front is join.me, a conferencing tool that is easy, intuitive and secure, letting you share screens, files and voice.

    Now Zyncro integrates with join.me to offer an online meeting system linked to your data in your Enterprise Social Network.

    How are Zyncro and join.me integrated?

    This new ZyncroApp in beta fase*, available for Business accounts, can be found like all the other ZyncroApps in the Administration Panel, where administrators must enable it so that users can start to hold online meetings.

    Once enabled, you can conference call any of your contacts from two spaces:

    1. Where the name of one of the members of your organization appears on the Zyncro microblogging wall, either on the Home or in one of the groups.
    2. From the person’s Profile, on the “Actions for the person” section.

    In both cases, the contact you have invited will receive a private message on their wall to start the conference call, which contains the link that they must click. What’s more, once you send the invitation, you must download and run the Java applet that opens automatically on your computer to hold the online meeting. Remember, without this application you can’t start your online meeting!

    You can hold a web conference in join.me with both your internal contacts and your external contacts.

    No need to leave the office for your meetings! Share your screen with join.me from Zyncro and increase your personal productivity!

    *Currently compatible with Windows OS.

    Access your Gmail account from Zyncro. This ZyncroApp allows you to receive immediate notification of new mails and directly access your inbox. Zyncro and Gmail unite to make your job easier 😉

    Do you use a Zyncro business account? Do you have Gmail? Would you like to be able to receive notifications in Zyncro when you have new emails? This integration is made for you: You can now zyncronize your Gmail account on your Zyncro Enterprise Social Network.

    Google is becoming more and more integrated with Zyncro. For almost a year the Google Calendar ZyncroApp has been available, and now integration with Gmail is possible. This is only the beginning of a happy friendship.

    As with other ZyncroApps, in order to start using the application, first of all the Administrator of your organization must enable it in the ZyncroApps section on the Administration Panel.

    Once this is done, access the right menu of your Profile > Gmail Integration and the ‘Connect to Gmail’ screen will appear.

    After clicking on this connection option, follow the steps below:

    1. Enter your username (or Gmail address) and password and click on ‘Enable access‘ by Zyncro to your Google account. Once you’ve introduced your Google details the first time, the registration screen won’t appear again
    2. If you have several Google accounts, all of them will appear, so you’ll have to select the account you wish to connect
    3. Now, the Gmail icon with the number of unread emails will now appear in the top right-hand side of your Enterprise Social Network.
    4. Also, you can set from Profile > Integration with Gmail how often you want Zyncro to check if you have new emails: 1, 2, 3 or 5 minutes.

     

    Control your emails with just one click with the new Zyncro integration: Zycronize your Gmail now!

    Zyncro Developers’ Challenge: The first Zyncro international contest for developers! 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    A new deadline for the Zyncro Developers Challenge! Now you can submit your proposals until August 31!!

    Build a new generation of business apps with Zyncro: develop your app and join the Zyncro Market. Sell your solution to Zyncro customers and be in with a chance to win great prizes!

    Today we’re proud to present our first contest for developers, the Zyncro Developers’ Challenge, in which we give developers around the world the chance to develop new ZyncroApps and integrations that enhance Zyncro use for all users of our enterprise social network across the world.

    Love the idea but unsure of where to start? Don’t worry, we’ll try to give you some inspiration :)

    To start off, why not check out the integrations that have been done in Zyncro and see which ideas we have already developed? Just check out the section in our web, ZyncroApps Integrations, and on our Zyncro Blog, you’ll also find related articles. It’s that easy! However, it doesn’t necessarily have to be one of these… the sky’s the limit! In fact, as you can already see in the terms and conditions of our contest, one of the aspects we value most is creativity. In other words, we’re looking for apps that ooze the Zyncro philosophy, promoting values like participation, collaboration, learning, professional ethics, business productivity, teamwork and communication. What’s more, they should be intuitive, like the Zyncro interface, and combine functionality with design, originality and innovation.

    Want some examples? These are some of the apps we have already developed:

    • SharePoint: Zyncro has developed a connector to add a social layer to SharePoint, letting users see and interact with the Zyncro activity stream without having to leave the SharePoint platform.
    • Google Calendar (personal and corporate): Integration to zyncronize” your Google Calendar, within your corporate Zyncro.
    During development you’re not on your own, as throughout the contest, there will be a number of international webinars where we will explain more details about the Zyncro API and ZyncroApps and their integration. In these webinars, you’ll be able to clarify any doubts you may have regarding the viability of your idea and learn more about Zyncro. We’ll be happy to answer your questions!

    And is there a prize at the end of it? Of course! We will be giving out a total of almost €10,000 cash in prizes:.

    • First prize: €5,000
    • Second prize: €3,000
    • Third prize: €1,500

    What’s more, all apps, whether they win or not, that the jury consider to be original and innovative will be released, together with the award-winning entries, on the Zyncro Market, establishing a commercial agreement with the developers beforehand. A contest always means that there are winners and others who don’t win, but at Zyncro, we don’t want any innovative app to go unnoticed, so so don’t miss out this chance to develop your own app for Zyncro!

    What are the key dates for the Zyncro Developers’ Challenge?

    • May 16: Registration for the Zyncro Developers’ Challenge starts
    • May 23: Access to the Zyncro development environment (Sandbox)
    • May 30: First Technical Webinar: More about Zyncro API, ZyncroApps and integrations (questions)

    Oh, and don’t forget to read the terms and conditions before participating; it’s an important part. What’s more, you must follows the development rules defined on the Zyncro Developers Portal :)

    Develop new characteristics, integrate Zyncro with classic software tools or create new accesses from other platforms and your app could become part of the Zyncro Market. Send us your proposals!

    May the force be with you, my friend! 😉

    Communication without language barriers with the new ZyncroApp: Zyncro Translator 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    Multilingual communication without language barriers is now possible in Zyncro with the new ZyncroApp: Zyncro Translator.

    From last Friday, Zyncro now offers all its users a new ZyncroApp: Zyncro Translator in beta phase for a limited time.

    This ZyncroApp has been developed by one of our expert partners in Microsoft technology and social technology with Zyncro: IndustryLabs. Thanks to them, language is no longer an obstacle to communication within Zyncro.

    Zyncro Translator lets you translate messages and comments on your wall in a simple click. Powered by the Bing (Microsoft) translation engine, it detects the messages that are not in the same language as your Zyncro and lets you translate them using a “Translate” button located beside each message. It’s that simple!

    The Bing translator lets you translate messges between 38 different languages!

    To activate it, your organization administrator needs to go to the Administration Panel > ZyncroApps and enable the translation app: Zyncro Translator.

    Once enabled, users will see the “Translate” button beside those messages that have not been written in the language they have configured in their Zyncro.

    Now users can understand the contents of the messages written in languages they don’t speak.

    The world is a little bit smaller for Zyncro and there are no language barriers in any organization…

    Both multinationals and SMEs that deal with international issues through their Zyncro now have a new tool to interact with their contacts securely, socially and now in multiple languages.

    The operation of this ZyncroApp is really simple and unobtrusive, as you can see in the following example.

    Remember that this Translate button will only appear on those messages that are written in a language different to the one you have configured in your Zyncro!

    Original message (Zyncro configured in Spanish, original message in English)

    Translated message (Zyncro configured in Spanish, message translated to Spanish)

    Try out Zyncro Translator (beta) now and remove those language barriers with colleagues in your organization in other countries, with your partners or customers within your Enterprise Social Network.

    Yes, you can!

    Zyncro Features: addZyngs 

    Estimated reading time: 4 minutes

    What is addZyngs?

    addZyngs is a ZyncroApp that lets you add messages, images, links or even insert web pages in the main menus of your corporate Zyncro interface.

    With addZyngs, you can create your own banners, corporate messages, notifications, offers… that will be visible to all members of your organization.

    addZyngs configuration

    To start to configure addZyngs, the organization’s administrator must go to the Administration Panel > ZyncroApps > addZyngs > Enable, and once the ZyncroApp is enabled, click on Configure. Within the configuration options, you can add content in:

    • Sidebar: Adds a new section on the right panel in Zyncro where you can post pictures, text or links. How would you like to be able to easily access all the main links you use? Or want to add a banner?
    • Header: Adds a messages shown at the top of the Zyncro web page. This can be used to post a corporate message for the whole organization. So everyone will know what’s going on in the company. It can be plain text, an image or you can include links and HTML code.
    • Section: Adds a new clickable section within the Zyncro main menu, beside the Profile section. You can either load an external web page within Zyncro or create your own content. Ideal for integrating the corporate web page or blog!

    How do I add external images?

    If you want the space you added to contain an image, click on the image icon in the addZyngs configuration section.

    In the window that pops up, enter the address (URL) of the external image you want to add and press OK. The image is automatically inserted in the desired location (sidebar, header, or section).

    If you insert an image in the sidebar, there is a maximum width for the size: 250 pixels. If the photo exceeds this size, it will be cropped, so best reduce its size or edit it beforehand so that it appears in the way you want.

     

    How do I embed a video or HTML code?

    At any time, you can change between the visual editor and the HTML editor directly by clicking the last button in the toolbar in the addZyngs configuration window.

    Once this option is activated, in the textbox for the HTML code, you can enter a section of HTML code to personalize you space.

    One of the great features of this is you can embed a video that is hosted on YouTube, Vimeo or other such services, either in the header or in the new section you add to the main menu.

     

    Encrust a video with addZyngs

     

    YouTube or Vimeo gives you a HTML code to embed videos in any web page. The only thing you have to do is copy this code, paste it in the HTML editor window and save the changes.

    You can do this, for example, to post a institutional video or an important message so that the entire organization will see it as soon as possible.

    With addZyngs, you can take the initiative and customize Zyncro, adding contents that let you personalize your enterprise social network as far as possible.

    Discover the many other ZyncroApps and get the most out of your Enterprise Social Network!
