Verse 2.1.0 Is Now Available!
We are pleased to announce the release of HCL Verse 2.1.0 for general availability. In the past few months, we have been focusing on providing you a more user-friendly email platform which aims to boost your productivity at work.     Some of the new features of this release are:    Contact Photo from Domino NAB:     Now you can upload your contact photo (profile picture) to the Domino Directory through Verse. There are a few ways to do this:    (1) Upload a photo from a local drive   (2) Enter a URL to photo  (3) Take a picture using the photo booth in Verse and upload it!    If you already have a photo configured in the Domino directory, Verse can access the directory and display your contact photo.     A New Extension Point – Modify on Send    Extensibility is one of the focuses of our product. In this release, we deliver a new extension point which allows customers to modify the email body and subject before mail is sent. One of the major use cases is inserting a classified marking to mail subject and body. This feature helps users to flag and classify emails based on sensitivity of information.  This is particularly useful to public authority, government departments and large enterprises.    Verse-Sametime Integration with new Sametime web client    This improvement is not limited to Verse 2.1.0. With Sametime 11.5 FP1  (released in Feb 2021) you can now initiate chat and meetings with your co-workers using the new Sametime web client. We understand that it may take time for customers to upgrade to Verse 2.1.0, so this new experience is compatible with previous versions of Verse as well.  To enjoy this new feature, just install the latest FP of Sametime!  These are just some of the features of this release.  To see the full list, please refer to our Release Note.  To try out these new features for yourself, simply download the package from Flexnet.    For more Verse information visit:  HCL Verse Developer site can be found here HCL Verse Ideas Portal on Aha - Domino Product Team
