The massive Release 1.5 Halogen allows you to post jobs internally and have recurring events inside your event calendar. You can also now choose between already existing Candela and brand-new LUX layout, which is loved by Valo Classic users.
September 2018 we introduced the very first Intranet built 100 % on top of modern SharePoint, Valo Modern, which has matured a lot within the + 1 year. Now, with Release 1.5 Halogen, it is better than ever!
Valo Intranet Release 1.5 Halogen brings Jobs postings, recurring events and much more
In this release of Valo Intranet, the theme is all about functionality. Some of the most popular features from our classic intranet offering can now be found inside the wonderful Modern world of SharePoint, including the most popular Valo Intranet User Interface LUX!
In the previous Release, 1.4 Fluo, we added e.g. instant news delivery and Yammer commenting to our Intranet in-a-box. From this release on, you will find the following new features wrapped into Valo Intranet:
- LUX user interface – the most popular UI from Valo Classic Intranet with a modern touch
- Job postings functionality to share your job postings inside, and directly to your organization
- recurring events – to make your event scheduling easy also inside the intranet
- simplified user experience in Polls
- visual query builder
- enhancing the end-user experience with on-site translation powered by Google Translate
Better than ever – LUX UI
The customers have loved the LUX user interface in the Valo Intranet for classic SharePoint. Now we introduce the better and refreshed version of LUX with some new elements like tabbed news and events in our Valo Modern.
Share Job Postings inside your intranet and ask opinions from your workers with Polls feature
Growing within your organization is now easy with the release of Job Postings functionality! Adding an open position, browsing all positions per location or type and even applying to them is all possible through Valo. Thanks to its simple-to-use interface all managers will simply love it!
Building custom surveys are already supported with the help of Microsoft Forms inside Valo Intranet, but some of the simpler scenarios felt still too complex. Polls feature is now in Modern SharePoint, supporting anonymous voting, inline results display and even rotating polls! It’s never been easier to get to the pulse of your organization!
Create recurring events outside calendar software
We know, events can be recurring. Calendar softwares like Outlook is supporting those, why wouldn’t SharePoint support something similar?
As Modern SharePoint is still left out with recurring events, we step in to close this gap and now you can create recurring events! From this release on, you can use enhanced events creation panel to create all types of recurring events. You will also be able to use the Events Data Source to display them (and all of their occurrences!).
Visual query builder in Search Data Source and on-page translation option
Taking in all the customer feedback we understood that Search is a critical aspect of a successful intranet. Not only Valo provided a great experience to build and customize search-based experiences, but it provided all the extensibility to make it shine.
As a SharePoint professional, it was considered common knowledge to be able to create and understand search queries to deliver those high-value scenarios. But what about the other users like communications people who just want to get their job done without understanding those functions? How can we help the user to build a search query in a simplified and visual way?
