All the latest Workplace product announcements and feature releases.
Hybrid working isn’t going anywhere so it’s never been more important for businesses to ensure their employees still feel connected even from afar. That’s why Workplace is excited to announce a number of brand new features that will help companies get more connected through events and broadcasts — no matter where their people are working from. Plus we’ve enhanced profile frames and shift cover functionality. Read on for more detail!Creating more engaging events
Creating more engaging events
Our new events solution is now available to bring your entire organization together for key moments and updates. As part of the improved events experience, you’ll be able to choose whether to broadcast your virtual event directly to Workplace, send invites out by group or set up an external link.
Whether you're planning your broadcast in advance via a virtual event, or going live in the moment, you'll also benefit from the simplified Live Producer user interface which lets you create high-quality live events for up to 100,000 people directly from your computer and see all your events in one place.
During the event, broadcasters can also get audience feedback with live reactions. When the event is finished, your organization will be able to get richer insights into how people engaged with the videos, including drop-off graphs showing how many times different parts of a video were watched during a broadcast or on demand.

Shift coverage made easier
It’s now easier to see all shift covers in one place. We’ve added filters so you can check the shift covers you need to approve and see all shifts for your team. In addition, everyone will be able to find available shifts to cover and view the shifts they’re already covering. People can now also add a description when requesting a shift cover. This allows them to give everyone helpful information about why they need their shift covered.
