Central Desktop, provider of cloud-based social collaboration platform for businesses, today announced the availability of new social features, including polling and enhanced presence detection.
Central Desktop's online collaboration platform allows users to share files, connect with colleagues and clients, and manage projects from a centralized, secure online location.
Central Desktop's new social features include the following:
- Polling – Allowing users to gather feedback from colleagues by attaching a poll to a new discussion. The poll creator can send an email notification to those taking the poll, make the poll anonymous or allow users to change their votes.
- Who's Online – Users can see who else is online on Central Desktop directly from their dashboards. When enabled, this feature displays the avatars of users who are online, along with the user's profile information.
- My Collaborators – This feature provides users with quick access to people they frequently collaborate with. The dashboard will display a user's top eight collaborators and link to a personalized contact list.
- Workspace Observers – A workspace observer is a user who needs access to the information in a workspace, but does not actively participate in the workspace. This permission level is ideal for executives or other users who only need limited access to certain workspaces.
"We feel it is incredibly important to stay in close contact with our customers and collaborate with them on which features to add to our solution," said Isaac Garcia, CEO and co-founder of Central Desktop. "The addition of these new features is a result of many conversations with our customers and reinforces our commitment to furthering Central Desktop's user-centric model. Our goal is to provide our users with the functionality they need to work smarter and faster."
