Beekeeper Employee App Product Release Notes May 2018

This month, the Beekeeper product team is bringing you a wealth of new, exciting feature releases for Beekeeper’s employee app. Some of the primary highlights include a number of improvements to our secure messaging experience, and chatbot innovations for gamification. We also worked on some major software system architecture changes to accommodate the internal communication complexities at larger organizations.

Beekeeper Product Release Highlights

  • New Chat Inbox (Web): The new chat interface on the web app makes secure messaging even easier to use. Search secure messaging conversations by title (or participants if named in the title) and switch easily between your chat inbox and the archive folder. We also improved the responsiveness of the page so that it loads faster.

Calls can be made directly to colleagues within our employee app from your phone. This feature is available if the user has a phone number listed in their Beekeeper profile.
