Dynamic News Connections Webinar Recap

We recently hosted a webinar to introduce the freshly released News Connections. On top of that, two new exciting features were introduced, Use Cases and Placeholders. Here is a video recap for those who were not able to attend or want to watch the webinar again.

Visual Builder Beta Is Out!

We are happy to announce that the much-awaited Visual Builder is released as Beta. Join us and dive into the brand-new intranet building experience!

P.S. If you’re currently on Auto Upgrade, you will need to disable it first.

The Faces of ShortPoint

Meet Anton, Our Senior QA Engineer

Today we’d like to tell you about Anton, our Senior QA Engineer. Anton has been with ShortPoint since the beginning of 2020. He is a very smart, independent, and confident specialist, the first one to ask difficult questions, suggest improvements and pick on the UI/UX part. You can be sure that our releases would be properly checked and verified before going public. Anton is very cheerful, positive and just a great guy. He is from Kyiv, Ukraine, where he lives with his beautiful wife Sasha and adorable daughter Vika.

It’s hard to imagine, but Anton used to play video games, which was a real time-killer for him. Now, he spends his free time on self-education, being with his family, practicing some yoga and meditation, and reading a lot. Speaking of reading, he is a real fan of stories by Stephen King. If Anton could go back in time, he would choose 2019, as it was so far the best year in his life.

See you in July!

More exciting news are planned for July. Stay tuned! And if you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, please send us a note. We love to hear from you.

See you next month, ShortPoint hero!
