Employees are set to enjoy up-to-the-minute internal communications thanks to a software update to the DeskAlerts RSS newsfeeds module. While in the past DeskAlerts users have been limited to public, non-secure RSS feeds, the new update allows them to access authentication restricted feeds at their fingertips. From headlines, videos and blogs to corporate software such as SharePoint and Exchange, the DeskAlerts RSS newsfeed offers users all-encompassing access to all the latest digital developments.
Users now have the freedom to receive desktop updates from any RSS enabled source. As well as the ability to choose their own informants, administrators can also ensure that employees receive corporate news and other information originating from internal or external entries.
Anton Vdovin, DeskAlerts Project Manager said, “RSS feeds are a fantastic way for employees to receive real-time information in a matter of seconds. As DeskAlerts is engineered to enhance productivity and internal communications we identified an RSS update as the next big project for the in-house team of software developers. Now, users enjoy the freedom to subscribe to RSS newsfeeds that require authentication, as well as the usual public feed. This will significantly boost the efficiency of employees and ensure that they don’t miss out on any important news, updates or announcements.”
Team work is a critical element of fostering productive workforces. Yet when communications aren’t properly streamlined productivity can soon be compromised. It’s essential for teams to stay up-to-date with developments at all times and with the DeskAlerts RSS newsfeeds update, workplaces can do just this.
Short for ‘Really Simple Syndication,” RSS feeds allow users to receive real-time updates when selected websites add new content. The web pages are designed to be read by computers and relay content to readers without compromising on quality or readability. For workplaces wanting to boost productivity and cut down on wasted time, the DeskAlerts RSS newsfeeds module upgrade is a serious benefit. Rather than spend time individually visiting each website to seek out new information, DeskAlerts users can get the lowdown straight from their personal interface.
One of the key benefits of the upgrade is the capability of DeskAlerts to support RSS feeds that require authentication. This means that users can now integrate SharePoint based corporate portals into the DeskAlerts RSS newsfeeds function.
“The ability to support SharePoint based corporate portals gives DeskAlerts a serious edge over the competition and offers users more flexibility and functionality than ever before,” adds Vdovin.
Designed to help employees share, collaborate and discover, Microsoft’s ultra-intuitive SharePoint software has emerged as a must have tool for any forward thinking workplace. Launched in 2001, SharePoint is now a one billion dollar business for Microsoft and is used by companies across the globe. According to the software giant, 78% of Fortune 500 companies are SharePoint users, with prestigious groups such as the Associated Press relying on the technology to streamline their operations.
Vdovin said, “SharePoint has quickly become one of the most valuable tools a contemporary workforce can employ. It allows employees to engage with their peers, share ideas and completely reimagine the way they work as a team. We have a huge amount of respect for Microsoft’s software and we’re incredibly excited to be able to announce that DeskAlerts now supports the integration of SharePoint based corporate portals. It’s a huge step forward for our service and offers users even more expediency than ever before.”
All RSS entries are delivered as prominent desktop alerts or as a scrolling desktop ticker. This ensures that employees receive immediate notifications without compromising productivity. By default, all new RSS entries are checked every five minutes. Administrators and employs then enjoy the complete peace of mind that they’re guaranteed to receive all the latest updates, as they happen.
Taking advantage of the brand new DeskAlerts RSS newsfeeds module update is easy. Users simply enter the RSS feed link into their Control Panel RSS section, confirm the new details and enjoy real-time updates direct to their corporate portal. It’s quick, easy and ensures that administrators and employees can stay in-the-loop at all times.
