ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha: Focus on What’s Most Important In Your Organization

ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha shines a spotlight on the most important information inside your intranet — so your employees are always up-to-date and coming back for more. In-browser notifications, personalized newsletters, beautiful new homepage layouts, and simple-yet-powerful calendars make it easy for employees to stay organized and productive. ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha is truly the easiest way to a vibrant intranet.

In-Browser Notifications

With our new notification features, important updates and changes now find you.

We’ve provided a convenient way for employees to stay up-to-date on what’s important with in-browser notifications. ThoughtFarmer watches for changes that are relevant to your employees, and notifies them individually when content is added or edited.

Notifications appear in ThoughtFarmer’s app bar and, optionally, on the desktop, so you can check them at your convenience or see them in real-time. Each employee can control his or her notification settings, so employees receive the quantity and type of notifications that work best for them. The in-browser notifications are especially convenient for employees who can’t receive notifications via email, such as some retail or manufacturing employees who don’t have corporate email addresses.

Improved Email Notifications

Notifications via email are better than ever in ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha. A distinct visual hierarchy in the redesigned, HTML-based emails makes for easy reading. And now you can add comments via email — just send a reply to any comment notification. ThoughtFarmer automatically processes the email and posts a comment on your behalf to the appropriate page. email_notifications_big

Content Following

Content following works in tandem with notifications, so you can keep up-to-date on what’s important and filter out what’s not. Follow blogs, pages, calendars, and more to get notified when content is added, edited, or commented on. Need to update your peer about an important change? You can also push notifications to co-workers by flagging a page for them.

Personalized Daily and Weekly Newsletters

Lots happens on a busy social intranet, but with our new email newsletters feature, you won’t miss a thing. Personalized daily email catch-ups summarize information employees may have missed into a convenient end-of-day email. Once a week, your intranet will auto-generate a personalized email newsletter for each employee that highlights the most popular intranet content they may have missed.

Visually Engaging Home Pages

ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha introduces big, bold, and beautiful homepage layouts that put your internal communications front and centre. New carousel and Pinterest-style (think “Pintranet”) layouts make your content look amazing — so users are more likely to engage with it. Use the new layouts solo or combine both for a homepage that reflects your organization’s style.

Shared Calendars

Create a centralized place for all your important office events that you can view at a glance. From the organization level down to the team level, shared calendars let you keep people in the loop about holidays, staff meetings, project timelines, and more.

TC-1-Calendar

Calendars are flexible, so you can customize event types to match your business needs. Multi-calendar views allow you to pull in events from other relevant calendars. Recurring events make scheduling weekly and monthly meetings a breeze. ThoughtFarmer is your new source of truth for company events.

ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha Extras:

Little intranet features make a big difference in user experience. We fine-tuned ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha by adding:

  • A sleek new App Bar: The redesigned app bar is flatter, more modern, and includes our new notification features.
  • “Preferred First Name” concept: Some Active Directories use legal names while employees are known by a preferred name. Is Robert known as Bob? Problem solved in Matcha.
  • Tussenvoegsel support: Dutch users can now search the employee directory more efficiently. ThoughtFarmer 7.0 Matcha accounts for the “van” and “de” in names like “Dick van Dyke” and “Greg de Vries”.
