HCL Connections 7.0

Planned for December 2020, HCL is delivering the new version of HCL Connections with some really great enhancements:

Tailored Experience

Save time and achieve better outcomes by building better Communities faster

  • Wizard
    • A step-by-step process takes users by the hand guiding them through the process of creating a Community
  • Templates
    • Whether you want to achieve a consistent look-and-feel across your organization’s Communities or you run repeatable projects that rely on bestpractices as part of every new project – Connections Community templates dramatically shorten the time to get productive
  • Highlights
    • A new Highlights experience that seamlessly integrates standard Connections apps with dynamic and configurable widgets

    • Messaging Extension

    • Send emails with links to Connections files rather than attaching a local file again and again
    • You have options
      • Share via link or as attachment if needed
      • Use the Outlook client integration on Mac and PC or in your browser
