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.  
 
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.

HCL Verse v2.2.0
We are pleased to announce the release of HCL Verse v2.2.0 for general availability. In this release, we continue investing our effort in integration between Verse and Sametime and enhancing mail capabilities.    With the new features, you will be able to chat with your team members with one click from the mail view. Also, you no longer need to switch back and forth between browsers and installed PWA for accessing delegated mail files. Here are some features in the latest release: Sametime awareness icon of the sender in mail view With this feature, when you open an email, you will see the sender’s Sametime status just next to their name. If the sender is online, you can click on the icon and initiate a chat with them immediately. Try out this feature today and chat with your colleagues with ease.   Archive Enhancements In Verse 1.0.8 we introduced the ability to access archived mail files. In 2.2.0, you can now archive, or restore from the archive, single messages using Verse.   HCL Connections v6.5 and v7 support You don’t have to worry about the versioning support of Connections in Verse if you are using Connections Profiles and File Previewing in Verse. We support the latest versions of Connections now! Type Ahead List   Have you ever wanted to remove someone from your type-ahead list when you compose an email? The suggestion in your type-ahead list is based on your interaction with that person/email. We introduce a new preference that allows you to remove any person or email from that list based on your needs. Don’t worry, this action is reversible.
