Announcing Several New Features

Today we're announcing several new features to the site.

The goal of ConnectElements.com has always been to bring people together for collaboration in the simplest way possible. There are no 'business silos' where an administrator at a business has to manage a corporate system. With ConnectElements.com, users have the power to form groups and start projects themselves, as we call it, in a flash!

The social business benefits from a reduced cost of business, faster resolution turnaround, an increase in customer satisfaction and an increase in repeat customers.

Here are the highlights of today's upgrade:

Streamlined Invitations

When you have a project or group and then invite others to join in, those users receive an email and are asked to either accept or decline the invitation. If the user is brand new to ConnectElements.com then the process is now streamlined so that when the user accepts, the user is asked to continue on to the group or project that they are invited to. Previously the user had to go through several clicks. This new approach gives the user a chance to get to your project or group quicker.

Importing Invitations

When you invite users, you can now import a whole list of users. You will need to know the user's first name, last name and email address.

Redesigned Pages

Users will find that we've also redesigned the profile pages. The goal of the redesign was to increase the visibility of the Activity Stream. We've done that by shifting the pictures around and moving the activity stream up higher on the page.

The documents module has also been improved to make looking through the documents much easier.

Photo Albums

This update also includes a new photos module for each profile. This is a fun way to upload batches of photos and share them in a group or project. Photos are organized into familiar albums.

Developer API

Finally, we're introducing a new API so that users can login through 3rd-party software. Developers can get in touch with us to learn more.
