New: Add multiple Personas to Spaces
Add multiple Personas to a Space so you can further automate Space enrollment for new or existing users. This is a quick and easy way to ensure the right people have access to the right information.
Wondering what Personas are? In Axero, you can create unique lists of people. (Imagine: remote IT employees, colleagues approaching a 10 year anniversary, teams located in the NY office—anything you want!) You can use Personas to send targeted communications to and automatically enroll them in specific Spaces.
New: Send reminder notifications for Required Reading content
If you have important content that requires action, Axero’s Required Reading tool does the job. Users receive notifications about important content, which then prompts them to confirm they read it after opening the content. Participation results are automatically stored and tracked—so you know who’s read it and who still needs to.
If you’re waiting on people to confirm they read a piece of content, you can now send reminder notifications. These notifications appear as emails and browser alerts, and give you a quick way to ensure items are acted on.
New: Unique viewer column for Top Content CSV
Understand what’s working and what needs improvements with content engagement. With the newly added Unique View in the Top Content CSV, you can now compare total views and the unique views for content. All information is easily downloadable in a CSV file so you can track engagement and the effectiveness of your content.

Ebook: How to strenghten your internal communications strategy
The Cure to What Ails Internal Communications
Communication is a top workplace challenge. According to IBM, 72% of employees do not fully understand their company’s strategy. This not only leads to turnover, confusion, and weakened productivity, but also wasted money for organizations—$4,200 per employee per year, according to SHRM.
That’s why it’s important to review how effective your communications strategy is and where you can improve it. When a communications strategy works, your workforce is aligned and engaged.
This ebook will help you:
- How to empower a more committed and better-performing workforce.
- How to make sure everyone is working toward the right goals, and make leadership more effective.
- How to evaluate your current internal communication strategy, and some tips to improve it.
Axero How-tos and Tips
We have many exciting how-to’s and tips to share with you to help your team make the most of Axero:
How to set up the Axero Search widget
Search widgets allow you to put a search bar anywhere on your intranet pages—even if it’s desktop or mobile. Whether it’s a standard search bar, an employee lookup bar, or you want to limit visibility based on roles, here’s how to set up different kinds of search experiences.
Have a private Space in your intranet that you want visible to other users? Change the hierarchy of your Spaces with the Manage Spaces panel. This option allows you to change a Space to the Top Level Community, or you can make it a subspace to keep relevant information together and organized. Explore all of your options!
A consistent voice from leadership increases engagement and morale. The Axero Ghostwriting feature allows you to publish content on behalf of someone else. This is a great option to keep a steady presence from higher-ups, or individuals who need additional support with sending communications to teams. Create content for specific spaces or the Top Level Community—all while author history is automatically tracked inside Axero.
