The enterprise messaging system DeskAlerts has today confirmed that it has rolled out its latest release to all of its users. The new release for the month of July is officially known as version 188.8.131.52.
With the latest update our customers will notice a number of changes and advancements, with several of the service’s most popular functions getting upgrades and overhauls. While changes and service improvements span all corners of the desktop alert software, the most noticeable advancements have been focused on a trio of key areas. They include changes to skins, improved widget functionality and modifications to the wallpaper module.
The first of the trio of notable steps forward with the new version of the desktop alert platform is the Skins functionality. This personalization option gives corporate users of DeskAlerts a quicker and easier way of obtaining a bespoke skin for their user interface. The Skins function is one of the most frequently requested capabilities and will now be delivered in just one working day with version 184.108.40.206.
A custom skin is ideal for larger businesses, those submitting large numbers of corporate communications, firms keen to establish a clear brand and those DeskAlerts subscribers with a large employee base. The branded skins are designed and created by a specialist team at DeskAlerts, giving professional results in just 24 hours.
Roman Toporkov, Lead Developer at DeskAlerts, added, "Custom branded skins add a real level of professionalism to corporate communications. In our latest alert software release we were keen to give our customers the option to personalize their DeskAlerts experience without any lengthy delays. With our new one working day lead time, these goals have both been met."
The second set of changes bundled with release 220.127.116.11 are centered on widgets, with improved widget functionality, better performance and increased overall stability. The improvements to the how Widgets work offer remarkable changes to the user experience and come less than a month after the leading desktop alerts software first rolled our widgets on its platform.
The changes to the widgets functionality under version 18.104.22.168 are effective immediately. Users will notice from logging in that they now have greater power over how their widgets are ordered. DeskAlerts users can also now add new widgets to their own dashboards, which means the most frequently used and useful tools will be closer at hand. An impetuous behind this change is to help users streamline their corporate communication channels and make the process of sending an alert quicker, easier and more convenient.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts said, "We always strive to assist organizations choosing DeskAlerts to manage their employee and corporate communication channels in a manner that is comfortable to them. We believe that users get more out of the experience when software is adapted to them, rather than the traditional approach of expecting the user to mould their own behaviors to the rigid structure of their chosen solution. Making our Widgets more flexible for users, and giving users more of a choice about how, where and what they use widgets for is crucial to increased productivity and time saving. Since we introduced Widgets as a feature last month, they have proved to be incredibly popular so we’re looking forwards to feedback from our clients on these latest modifications."
The third and final major development encapsulated within the latest July release is to be found in the ever popular corporate wallpaper module. With version 22.214.171.124, DeskAlerts clients will now find support for multiple displays. Wallpaper messaging with DeskAlerts presents an interesting and impactful way for those in charge of corporate communications to deliver key notifications as desktop wallpaper. The wallpapers can be rotated, with multiple screens running in a cycle to convey complex messages or communicate a wider range of topics than is possible on one wallpaper alone.
Employees using multiple screens – as is often necessary in creative roles such as programming, marketing and design – can see the sequence of wallpapers across their monitor set up.
Anton Vdovin, Project Manager at DeskAlerts said, "Corporate wallpapers and corporate screensavers can be very effective channels of communication. Multiple display support was long overdue so we’re delighted that this has been rectified and is now supported by DeskAlerts."
