ThoughtFarmer 4.5. In the Cloud.

CloudsThoughtFarmer 4.5 marks the release of ThoughtFarmer Cloud Edition, a fully hosted version of our social intranet software. Read the Cloud release announcement or view Cloud pricing.

Cloud Edition

ThoughtFarmer is now available as a service, priced at $10/user/month or less. We handle the infrastructure, upgrades, back-ups, and so on — it’s hassle-free. As an additional bonus, it’s architected so you can migrate to the Self-Hosted Edition at any time if your business requirements change in the future.

Expertise locator

Expertise fields can be defined for employee profiles, such as Languages Spoken, Certifications, or Special Skills. Each area of expertise turns into a tag, so you can quickly search and filter on employees who, for example, speak French, or know PhotoShop, or have their Realtor license.

Export to Word

In addition to the existing Word Import feature, any ThoughtFarmer page can now be exported to Word.

Improved Calendars

Add events in a single click; drag and drop events; improved display of multi-day events; specify color-coded Event Type; new Week View and Day View in addition to default Month View.

Recommended Tags

External Users

Provide limited access to partners, vendors and contractors without provisioning an Active Directory account.
