Every month Axero sends the latest Communifire updates, tips and tricks in a newsletter called The Monthly Review. Here’s what was new in December 2019. Sign up to receive The Monthly Review here.
What’s New in Communifire
This month we added Search Analytics for spaces. You can review what’s going on in different spaces and, based on the divisions in your intranet, understand what’s serving your people the most. What keywords are people searching for? What are your most popular tags? What content gets the most clicks? What gaps do we need to fill in?
We also added four new REST APIs so you can take customization to the next level––learn more about what’s new.
I also want to take the time to thank you. On behalf of the entire Axero team, we wish you a happy holiday and a prosperous new year! We are grateful to work with you and be part of the amazing things you do every day. Here’s to another year of exceeding goals and making things happen—together.
– Tim Eisenhauer, President, Axero
