Here's what you need to know about the June 2020 Product Release.
What's included in the June Product Release?
New option to Search Hub Content from Spoke
In this release, digital workplace users in a Spoke workspace can now search for content and view search results in a connecting Hub workspace without having to initiate their search from the Hub environment. This enhancement allows digital workplace users a more efficient way to acquire search results in a Hub environment from a Spoke.
Searching a Hub workspace from a Spoke workspace is executed through the Advanced Search page. For networked enterprise, there will be tabs labelled with the title of the workspaces. Spoke users can search from the Spoke workspace tab to conduct a search within the Spoke or switch to the Hub tab where a search will automatically occur utilizing the ‘Content Type’ and ‘Last Updated’ filters set in the proceeding Spoke search. If a user returns to the Spoke workspace, the filters from the previous Spoke search will be retained.
New Personalized Search History feature
Search is one of the most effective methods for locating information within the digital workplace. As part of this release, users now have the ability to view their search history in Advanced Search for a personalized search experience. This feature enhancement allows users to quickly and easily locate content and people within their digital workplace without having to re-enter their search. This can be especially helpful for searches that are conducted frequently.
Search History functionality is a new capability presented in the Advanced Search function. Upon initiating a search from the Advanced Search page, users will be presented with a personalized list of previous search queries that match the query presented. The Search history list includes up-to 10 most recent queries. As more characters are typed into the search query field, the list presented will become more refined.
Search Widget enhancement to filter by Space
Placing a Search Box widget on a Page or Space allows digital workplace users to quickly and easily locate people and content. As part of this release, the search widget configuration has been expanded to allow administrators to filter search results by Space. When utilizing the Search field, Spaces matching the specified search query will be presented. Users have the option to navigate to the Advanced Search Page with the corresponding search results and applicable filters. This enhancement provides administrators with the ability to configure Search to only search specific locations and content, creating a contextualized search experience for users of the workplace.
In this release, we’ve introduced the following accessibility enhancements across some features in the Control Panel:
- Color Contrast – Color contrasts was updated to meet WCAAG 2.0 requirements
- Revised Heading Elements – Updated syntax for selected sections and headers to enable accessibility devices (e.g. screen readers) to navigate through the page
- Contextual Links/Buttons – Accessibility devices such as screen readers rely on proper syntax for sections and headers to navigate through the page. Selected links and buttons were enabled with labels to uniquely identify them, so they have context without being able to see the whole page.
- Alt Tags & Aria Labels – Provides a description of an image for those who cannot see it
- Improved Keyboard Accessibility
