Connections has always been about empowering people, and our new Connections Cedar (v8) release delivers a redesign which dramatically improves the collaborative experience— making it easier than ever to navigate, quickly find what you need and share content.  

HCL Connections provides the structure to help teams come together more effectively, close information gaps, and drive efficiencies for teams working remotely or on-site. HCL Connections streamlines collaboration and delivers team content, news, conversations, and project tasks all in one place. Our latest release, Cedar, builds on this legacy by reimagining the user experience and improving the overall usability and efficiency for employees and teams.  

HCL Connections Cedar (v8) delivers these innovations and more:   

  • Improved usability — fewer clicks, intuitive experience: Connections now delivers an improved, intuitive navigation experience which helps achieve greater user adoption and efficiency. Left main navigation bar provides easy and consistent access to key Connections apps with configurable options to add additional apps. The “Important-To-Me” bar, now always on the right, speeds up access to commonly used resources like key people and Communities. 
  • Supercharged search and search results: A new centrally located search bar simplifies user interaction by enabling context sensitive focus and intuitive filtering, and changes context based on the specific Connections app you are using. Recent Searches and Quick-Results options help you to quickly locate content, Communities, and people. Simplified filtering ensures relevant results are always easy to find. 
  • Increased collaboration with universal upload & share: The new share buttons enable users to easily share the currently viewed page within Connections, Sametime or via other integrated chat tools. Share content with People or Communities while permissions are still enforced based on privacy selections. 

HCL Connections delivers on our continued commitment to enable a market-leading user experience for collaboration and employee engagement. Connections 8 will provide a pervasive sharing experience that lets you increase information velocity and help new ideas and best practices go viral. Upgrade your Connections experience now with our latest release and experience all the benefits Connections offers
