The Digital Workplace mobile app by Igloo gives your workforce instant access to the most important conversations, content, and expertise. And it allows organizations to maintain a high-performance corporate culture where employees are engaged, aligned and productive.
Find, review, and action information Connect employees to everything they need to keep work flowing. The app offers key functionality like push notifications, sharing, following, commenting, and liking.
Connect with colleagues With quick access to user profiles via search or the people directory tab, the app lets employees get in touch via email, phone, or chat.
Collaborate better — and faster Need to share project updates? Review content in draft? The app enables the quick actions that employees need to collaborate and be productive from anywhere.
Employees in healthcare, retail, and education often have limited access to traditional workstations, making it tough to communicate policies, procedures and corporate updates. The Digital Workplace mobile app lets you connect these employees to their digital workplace without an additional investment in computer hardware. Instead, they can simply use their personal or work mobile device.
Whether they’re at a conference, visiting customers, or attending offsite meetings, executives and sales teams are often out in the field – where you need them to be. With the Digital Workplace mobile app, they can tailor notifications and feeds to see only relevant updates – allowing them to manage their busy schedules and keep work moving without having to open their laptops.
Because remote workers aren’t physically in the office, they can often miss out on important information and social interaction. The Digital Workplace mobile app gives home-office employees a direct line into HQ – so they can virtually connect, collaborate, and contribute – while balancing their work and personal responsibilities.
The app opens automatically on My Feeds – a personalized feed of all the content and channels you’re subscribed to, so you have a single location for critical updates. When you click on an item in My Feeds, it opens in a view where you can read, comment, like, and share with other Igloo users – or open the content in the mobile browser.
The Notifications tab displays @mentions and broadcast messages directed to you. A badge count shows the total number of unread notifications, clearing each time you view one. Any notifications you bookmark for follow-up will show in the “Read Later” sub tab.
The in-app responsive web view provides an experience and functionality similar to a standard mobile browser. This view lets you navigate to digital workplace content such as specific channels, spaces, and pages without having to leave the app’s curated experience.
You can select a set of channels to access quickly without having to follow the entire channel. This is useful if you need access to a channel for updates, content, or resources, but not frequently enough to get notifications. When you’re viewing a channel in the Digital Workplace app, you can follow a channel, favorite a channel – or both.
The People tab is the mobile version of the Igloo people directory, giving you quick access to other members. Profiles are listed alphabetically, and you can search for specific people. This tab lets you see an individual’s recent activity, contact them, or view their full profile through the default mobile browser.
This feature displays all the digital workplace content you’ve got access to that’s been uploaded or edited, so you’re always aware of what’s happening.
Mark items in your feed or notifications tab for future follow-up by clicking on the Read Later icon.
This tab manages email notifications for desktop and mobile experiences, as well as push notifications for the mobile app.
Distribution is available through Microsoft Intune. Within MS Intune, administrators can enable access to the Digital Workplace app from both the Google Play Store for Android and iTunes Store for iOS, and even push the app out to managed devices.
The app uses the same authentication model as the web experience, supporting Igloo authentication, SAML, or LDAP. And with automatic session renewal, you don’t need to enter your credentials every time.
The following operating systems are officially supported when using the Igloo Digital Workplace app: iOS Version 10 and above and Android Version 7 (Nougat) and above.
