Speakap Roadmap

We’re constantly adding new features and improving your experience, to make your employee communications even better.

Upcoming features

Do Not Disturb

We all want to unwind every now and then. And even though it’s super easy and useful to always have a direct line of contact with your employees, the employees themselves may like to enjoy their weekends and holidays without the 'ping' of a push notification (and, by the way, you should also take a break sometimes!).

To allow this, we will add a Do Not Disturb mode, which will make sure users won’t be interrupted by Speakap at all during these times, while not losing those important updates to check once you’re back at work.

Private messages 2.0

What would be better than seeing a confirmation that your colleague has received your message? Maybe when you see she’s already typing her response? Say no more, we got this!

Statistics

See how, when and why your employees use the platform with this statistics dashboard. Collect relevant data and adjust your content strategy so that you can always reach the right employees at the right time.

Polls

Want to survey your employees to find out how your workforce feels about a particular issue? Thinking about planning an office party, but are not sure about the most desirable activity? Or maybe you want to run some employee pulse surveys. With this new feature, you will be able to quickly ask your employees a question and collect their answers in a simple way.

Scheduled publication

Remember that content strategy we talked about earlier? Well, how nice would it be if, with all the new statistics and insights now available, you could plan and schedule when a specific piece of content will be published?

Search 2.0

Looking for that one colleague with specific expertise? Or that one update containing an important piece of information? With this feature advancement, it will be possible and easy to find everything and everybody within your network.

Enterprise 2.0

Another upgrade to one of the more important sections of the Speakap platform. This time, we will introduce some requested improvements to our enterprise model, which will make the configuration and management of your network even easier.

Released features

Alternative registration methods

What if you don’t have access to the email address of your employees? Or, if you do, but you’re not allowed to use them from a legal perspective? To use Speakap within your organisation, we will make it possible to invite users without using an email address.

Custom Terms & Conditions and Privacy Statement

GDPR… who doesn’t love it? Well, we secretly do, and we think you should be in control of the agreements you make with your employees. To facilitate this, we will allow you to set and communicate your own Terms & Conditions and Privacy Statement for the use of the Speakap platform with your employees. Super fun, right?!

File Management

We understand that it's important for you to keep all your documents, guidelines and playbooks in one place. We have some good news: file management is available in Speakap. We are also working hard on extra options and improvements to make it even easier for you.

Click on 'Files' in the left-hand menu to go to the list of files. You will then see a list of recently uploaded files, all the files on your network, and any files in groups that you are a member of.

Mentions

It is possible to add a user to a message or update by typing @firstname or @surname. You can then choose a name from the list that appears.

The person you named in your update will receive a notification; as a result, he or she can quickly participate in the discussion or reply to a question.

Embeds

If you place a link to a website or video in Speakap, you will see a preview in Speakap and your fellow users will immediately be able to see what it is you want to share.

Online status

From now on, it will be easy to see (on the panel next to your timeline) which members of your network are online. We have three statuses available 

Online: the user has a tab with Speakap open in the foreground and is active, for instance by moving the mouse or using the keyboard

Inactive: the user has a tab open with Speakap but the tab is not in the foreground

Offline: the user does not have a Speakap tab open

External users

It is possible to work together safely by providing external users access to your Speakap platform but limiting their access to the group or groups of which they are a member. As a result, the external user will not have access to business sensitive information that is shared with the entire network, but is able to communicate effectively with the right people in your organisation.

Speakap Enterprise

With the new Enterprise settings, a network administrator is able to easily create their own business units, departments and groups.

Revamped iOS App

The Speakap iOS app has been given a major redesign. Not only has the look and feel of the app been updated, but we've also added loads of new features and improvements under the hood.

Rich text editor for news

We've noticed there is a need for the ability to style and format news. This update makes it possible to edit your news items, just like you're used to from a text editor. The new editor will have the following options:

  • Option for headings (H1, H2, H3)

  • Bold texts

  • Italic texts

  • Underlined texts

  • Unordered lists

  • Ordered lists

  • Add links

  • Add images

Edit updates & news items

A common feature request is to change updates and news items after they are posted. This update makes that possible for the users who have certain rights.

Visual & functional updates for the timeline

This update added the option to filter and mark updates within the network timeline, improving the way content is retrieved. Another improvement is the way shared images are shown. You can also now preview a full image without having to download it to your device.

Improved group management & group widgets

This update makes it possible for the network administrator to manage all the groups within the network. That includes adding widgets to group timelines. This way, you're able to set widgets for each group or just disable them.

Events

This update makes it possible for users to create and plan events. The event editor has the following options:

  • Title

  • Date and time (single date or a range of dates)

  • Location

  • Invite members of the network

  • Cover image

  • Event description (rich text)

  • Attachments
