i-lign 8.6 release announcement

By Rachel | February 11, 2019

We’re pleased to confirm the release of i-lign 8.6. Hosted customers will be upgraded during the evening of Sunday 17 February, pending final testing.

As you know, i-lign 8.6 focuses on improving our support for organisation wide collaboration. i-lign 8.6 updates our conversation feature significantly and adds the ability to hashtag conversations. This work is intended to help people network across your organisation by engaging in conversations in i-lign and using hashtags to make connections.

As always, please get in contact if you have any questions or comments.

Conversations and hashtags

The Conversations tab on the Home page is the main place to carry out networking activities. It has much more of a social media feel than our current tab. As well as being able to read conversations, people can create or subscribe to hashtags and search for conversations which might interest them. They can also start new conversations from the speech bubble icon on the top level tool bar. For more information see this Conversations tab navigation tutorial.

The Conversations Side Panels in other parts of i-lign have also had a makeover. In 8.6 it’s easier to add new conversations and read / reply to existing ones from the side panels.

Home page help

You can access help information relating to the Home page and Top Level Navigation Bar from the Home page in 8.6.

Concepts renamed to Business Cases

Concepts have been renamed to Business Cases in 8.6 to reflect the language most commonly used in organisations.
