Version 5 Webapp
We would like to remind you that there is a preview of our future update to the Webapp available now at http://appnext.bigtincan.com.
V5 of the Webapp brings all of the great capabilities of the latest mobile app to the web. As this is a major update for the Webapp, we wanted to let you know that we are delivering this update through a staged process.
This approach means that existing users will be able to continue using the current Webapp as they do today, with the option of viewing their content in the new Webapp as desired.
During this preview period we will be connecting with all admins to provide training and answer questions regarding the update. We think you and your users are going to love it, as this enhancement will help increase adoption and usage across the system. A few screenshots and access details are available by clicking on the link below – take a look and get a feel for what the new Webapp will be like.
The initial release of Webapp v5 will contain a full featured set for viewing and working with content – with additional capabilities like content creation and updated Admin structures being added over time. So for the initial preview, remember content creation and Admin will still occur in the existing Webapp.
We have also included a Feedback button on the new Webapp that will allow you to provide us direct input into the way the new Webapp works. We would love to hear what you think!
Thank you again for your commitment to the Bigtincan Hub platform and we hope you enjoy the new Webapp and v5.0.5 as much as we do useful content.
