What’s New in Communifire
We hope you’re having a wonderful end to your summer—because fall is right around the corner! The Axero team is working hard to deliver new features and updates that matter most to you. We’re excited to announce a brand-new ghostwriting feature and a major Outlook calendar sync update!
First, let me share more details about the ghostwriting tool. Many customers request a way for users to post content on behalf of someone else. Imagine a CEO who wants her assistant to post blogs on her behalf. This tool makes sure your top-down communication—and all internal communications—are as strong as possible. Learn more about ghostwriting features.
Second, the Axero team is equally excited to share our latest Outlook calendar sync update. We understand how meaningful Outlook integration is for our customers, because most use it every day. Add an event in Outlook and never think twice about your Communifire calendar, or vice versa, because everything is in sync. Imagine that. Explore the updated two-way sync.
These are just two of 20 other enhancements to improve how you work every day––discover what’s new here.
