Here at Elium, we are animated by a daily mission of empowering organisations and professionals to make the most of available Knowledge. 

And for this, we are continuously improving the product, either with incremental changes or with super exciting innovations. 

In the last few months, we worked with our teams and partners on 4 MAJOR updates, focused on enabling:

  • 🌍 Knowledge that adapts – to the local languages used by global clients. 
  • 🚀 Knowledge that stays alive – helping platform administrators quickly transfer information ownership from one user to the other. 
  • 👩‍💻 Knowledge that is easy and engaging to create – making Knowledge sharing better for everyone using Elium.
  • 🤝 Collaborative Knowledge – enabling teams to enrich and improve Knowledge shared. 

Let’s discover all of these and a bit more!👇😁

1. Knowledge that adapts: Automatic Translation of content 🌍🇪🇸🇩🇪🇵🇹🇫🇷 

Many of our clients use Elium to share knowledge with teams from different countries in one central place. And that usually means communicating in more than just one language. Translating content can become a tedious and time-consuming process. Luckily, from now, we got you covered. 

👩‍💼 Contributors can now instantly translate the content they are working on starting from an automatically suggested machine translation. 

👩‍💻 Readers can automatically translate any content written in another language than the one they use on the platform. 

Both actions can be done with just a click of a button, as the auto-translate feature is automatic and machine-enabled. 

2. Knowledge that stays alive: Content Transfer when an employee leaves 📮 

Teams using Elium have reported how it is so much easier than before for everyone in the organisation to share their knowledge and insights. 

But there was a missing link and several important questions. 

  • What happened with the knowledge created by a team member once they decided to leave the organisation?
  • Will it still be kept alive if no one was around to update it?
  • Will people still use it? 
  • Will critical business content have to be recreated?

Luckily, here at Elium, we found a solution to this. When an employee leaves the organisation, he can assign one or several successors to take over their content and ensure it stays up to date.

If the departure is rushed, platform administrators can force a content transfer by choosing who will inherit this employee’s content. 😁 

3. Knowledge that is engaging to create: the New Elium Editor ✍️👩‍💻🚀  

Knowledge that is engaging to create: the New Elium Editor ✍️👩‍💻🚀In the past months, working with our community of clients and partners, we worked to improve the sharing experience in Elium, and revamp the editor. This resulted in several key improvements: 

✍️ Improved the UI. Making the content blocks and editing options more visible and ensuring that sharing new knowledge is fast and easy.

✍️ Added new content blocks. Such as the code block or the drawings one, enabling teams to share knowledge visually. 

✍️ Made everything simpler. We made it simple to capture new knowledge using tables, increased the visibility of Keyboards shortcuts and introduced the automatic numbering of your titles. 

✍️ Linked different pieces of knowledge together with ease.  It is easier and more visual to link the content you are working on with an improved version of the Story card functionality. 

4. Knowledge that is collaborative – introducing annotations📮 

In Elium, there are already several options for colleagues or partners to collaborate around shared knowledge. Users can comment, like or co-edit a Story, thus enriching the information shared. 

To take collaboration one step forward, we are introducing the annotations – an option which:

  • ✍️ allows every user to add in-line feedback to different sections of a Story (content)
  • ✍️ enables Story (content) creators to reply to these comments and resolve them when changes have been made 

And just like that, collaboration around knowledge is faster and easier. 

🧐 5. Knowledge that is easy to preview – preview story cards

To make knowledge discovery faster, we introduced Preview of Story Cards. This feature allows users to quickly preview the content of a Story, before opening it.

This is particularly useful when users browse stories on the homepage or in the Search query.

📈6. The Elium – Microsoft PowerBI Integration now available

Elium seamlessly integrates with several Microsoft applications: Sharepoint, OneDrive and Teams. And from now on Elium also integrates with PowerBi allowing you to measure the impact of knowledge sharing, directly in your preferred analytics environment.

📲 7. New Improvements to the Mobile Application for your teams

From now on, you can choose to customise the mobile app to resemble more your company’s branding. Give it a name that speaks to your team, use your corporate colours and just like that ensure that your team is excited to use it.
