ThoughtFarmer 8.1 Satsuma: A Refreshingly Engaging Intranet

At ThoughtFarmer, we help you grow employee engagement—by creating a vibrant intranet that everyone loves being a part of. ThoughtFarmer 8.1 Satsuma builds on the engagement and flexibility offered in ThoughtFarmer 8 Citrus to bring you a host of rich tools that help employees take charge of their own productivity and engagement.

To help your employees feel valued, we introduced a new shout-out feature. This collaborative feature encourages a culture of recognition at your organization by empowering staff to recognize one another for outstanding contributions.

Video is a powerful and versatile tool for sharing information with employees. Our new video embed functionality allows you to tell your company’s stories and connect employees emotionally with videos hosted on right your intranet.

Finding information is the most important function of an intranet. New search infrastructure offers best bets, “did you mean” recommendations, find as your type, and fuzzy search. These new tools make it easier for your employees to find and access the resources they need to do their jobs. Plus, you can now also embed Google Docs and Google Drives into your intranet.

Give employees tools that are unique to your business. Custom cards and developer tools speed up the time for customizations and integrations making your intranet a true reflection of your organization.

Centralize your organization’s Google Drive files

Make your intranet the central hub for collaboration. Our Google Drive integration organizes your company’s Google Docs and Google Drive files into one central location. Users can view the file on the page, and if the file owner has granted permission, they can click on the file title to open it in Google Drive and make changes to it.

Improved Desktop Connector

Having to download additional applications can sometime cause a bottleneck with IT. That’s why we’ve developed a replacement for the existing Desktop Connector application that is no longer dependent on Adobe Flash or Adobe AIR, making the connector 100% native to ThoughtFarmer.

Synchronize group pages with security profiles

The intranet is home to all kinds of content, some of which is confidential. This is why we’ve made it easy to build out a security model that fits your team structure. With one easy click, you can create security groups based on group membership for pages and sections.
