- Why Speakap?
Some groups are more important than others. We get that. So we will allow you to configure which groups will send you a push notification the second something new is posted on it’s timeline, and which don’t.
Never miss another Event because you can set a reminder notification that will alert you shortly before the Event starts. Or long before… it’s up to you with these completely configurable Event reminders. Set a default that applies to every Event, or custom reminders per Event.
GDPR, ISO & FLSA. The abbreviations your employees need, but also deserve. Let’s make sure that next to being compliant with the first two, Speakap is also compliant with the third.
Sometimes one of your employees didn’t receive (or lost) their invitation to the platform. Or onboarding is simply not going as smoothly as you would like it to go. In that case, you might want to resend an invitation.. or a whole group of invitations. This improvement will make it possible to quickly manage your open invitations for the entire network, or specific groups.
How often do my employees use the platform? What is the best time to send that one important news item for maximum impact? How is the onboarding going? All sorts of questions we want to help you answer with this new statistics module in Speakap.
Ever wanted your colleague’s opinion about something? Or planned a night out with the team, but were not sure which day or restaurant would be the best option? This new feature will allow you to quickly create a poll, share it with your colleagues and gather their input so you’re sure you’re making the right decision!
Sometimes something happens that you want all your employees to be aware of. So in those cases, you might want to pin an update to the top of the timeline, making it visible for everyone who visits the platform.
Multiple Themes helps companies with several brands and/or locations personalize the employee experience and differentiate their platform for their employees, enabling them to work in an environment that feels familiar and trustworthy to them.

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, holidays or vacations without the 'ping' of a push notification (and, by the way, you should also tale 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, while not losing those important updates to check once you’re back at work.
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 organization, we will make it possible to invite users without using an email address.
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 and Conditions and Privacy Statement for the use of the Speakap platform with your employees. Super fun, right?!
This update makes it possible for users to create and plan events. The event editor has the following options:
Date and time (single date or a range of dates)
Invite members of the network
Event description (Rich text)
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.
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.
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.
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
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 organization.
With the new Enterprise settings, a network administrator is able to easily create their own business units, departments and groups.
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.

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)
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.
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.
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.
