In the Igloo Community
All of the Igloo theory and strategy webinars are now available as self-paced, on-demand recordings as part of Igloo University. In this new format, our expanding webinar series is available to re-watch anytime and anywhere. With the launch, we've added the Change Management webinar will provide tips and tactics to successfully navigate the change experienced when launching or evolving a digital workplace.
A fantastic interactive discussion focusing on the lessons we've learned and the changes we've made during the WFH Revolution. Panelists Lisa Aimable and Hannah Cook chat engagement, strategy, social and even training as they guide us through their Digital Workplace Projects and spaces.
Find the recording here. As noted on the call, our next webinar will take place April 28, 2021, and will be themed around spring-cleaning your Digital Workplace - stay tuned for more information!
Brian McIlravey speaks to a topic that's elusive for many in our shift to remote work, how do we gather around the water cooler going forward? In our WFH culture, problems like burnout and isolation are on the rise - read more about how we strengthen the social connections that make us more productive and happy work, wherever it happens.
We've learned a lot about exponential growth this year, and it applies to governance theory too. Jim writes, "If your Igloo has a hundred people, and each of them creates one item a day, in a year you'll have over 25,000 pieces of content. It scales rapidly from there, and can make finding what you're looking for a challenge." Consider Jim's Archiving and Labels tips as part of your governance model.
We've overhauled the preview experience of documents (e.g., MS Word documents, pdf documents, etc.) to provide a more modern user-friendly interface. This includes a taller display window, an updated toolbar, and a better document search experience.

The Best Practices Center denotes considerations when deciding between archiving and deleting content. Remember, archived content is visible to users in the channel but prevents them from being edited, commented on, or returned as search results. The bonus content management option? Moving content into a depermissioned area of the Site Manager.
The first time I dropped a widget on the white gap in the page opened new possibilities for how I could build and configure. Ready to take that next step? Watch this quick video to see row classes in action, you might already have them in your site.
Like row classes, widget classes add more paints to an artist's pallet. In this short video, learn how using the class field in a widget can affect how the widget is styled. Try using row and widget classes together for new page layouts.
