Jive introduces connectors for Microsoft Office 365
Yesterday, Clara Liang announced the launch of the new Jive Connections for Office 365 on the Jive Community Blog:
- The Jive Connector for Outlook Online brings relevant Jive content and conversations into Outlook email threads for easy reference. People can now upload attachments, create and reply to discussions in Jive and view personal streams within both the cloud and Windows desktop versions of Outlook. With the integration of Jive’s structured outcomes feature, people can also reply in line or mark comments for action to drive business outcomes.
- The Jive Connector for Office Online eliminates the hurdles of working on Office documents, spreadsheets and presentations regardless of where they live. You can now co-author these files in cloud and Windows desktop versions of Office. With the addition of Jive’s popular impact metrics feature, people can also analyze the reach and sentiment of documents in Office 365.
- The Jive Connector for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business enables people to quickly and easily access and work off documents stored in either location. The newest integration with SharePoint Online syncs news and activity streams between SharePoint and Jive and easily delivers activity from both systems to mobile devices.
However, if you’ll be looking to deploy the Office 365 integration, your best bet would be to attend the upcoming ‘Jive + Office 354: Moving to the cloud just got easier’ webinar featuring John Schneider and Nick Hill that takes place on October 7 at 10am PST/1pm EST. You can register here.
