Multi-channel views

Create custom views into your content by pulling multiple sources into one widget, such as aggregating your blogs for a corporate news feed or creating a master calendar view of all events.


We've improved the following widgets with multi-channel viewing:

  • Recent Activity
  • Recent Comments
  • Recent Contributors
  • Forum Topics
  • Blog Articles
  • Calendar Events

Calendar improvements

Start sharing the agenda, meeting minutes and action items buried in your calendar, just by adding your Igloo calendar as an attendee to your Outlook or Google Calendar invitations.

And when you create an event Inside your Igloo calendar, you can control time zones, allow open RSVP and set reminders for attendees.

We've also built up the social tools around our calendars. Now you can add related links, labels and attachments to an event or series of recurring events.

Business Continuity Insurance

Igloo also expanded its data center operations in order to increase the number of options provided to customers for offsite backup and to ensure continuity of service in the event of a natural disaster. The facility is located in Vancouver, B.C. and is managed by Savvis, a premier managed hosting and co-location provider with data center locations around the world.

For all our customers, data is replicated at our primary data center. However, adding business continuity insurance (BCI) provides peace-of-mind knowing that your data is protected against a disaster (e.g. fire, flood), should one affect our primary hosting facility.

The BCI program is intended to minimize the impact on our customers and get systems up and running as quickly as possible with minimal disruption and data loss.


Business continuity insurance adds a safety layer of data replication, recovery and service for customers in the event of a disaster that affects our primary data center.

Disaster recovery
The disaster recovery site is located in Vancouver, B.C.

Data recovery
Igloo asynchronously replicates customer data (near-time) to the remote disaster recovery site.

How to get it

Business Continuity Insurance is available for $1 per user per month and can be added to your contract at any time.

Existing customers
Business Continuity Insurance is available for $1 per user per month. Contact your account manager for details.
