On Deck: Chatter for SharePoint 1.6


Hi Everyone – sorry it’s been awhile between posts. March was a busy month which culminated in a new job working for Automotive Resources International (ARI). Don’t worry – I’ll still be bringing you new blog posts and updates to the solutions here – especially Chatter for SharePoint.

Planning and development of version 1.6 is well underway. While the final list of new features and fixes is still to be determined, I can share what is on the drawing board.

  • File upload to SalesForce
    You’ve asked for it (I pushed back, lol) but I finally relented. Included in version 1.6 will be the ability to upload files to SalesForce Chatter from the web part.
  • Share to Group Improvements
    Looking to improve the Share to Group functionality so it is closer to the native Chatter experience
  • Photo Sync
    This one is a big MAYBE. Thinking about adding a timer-job to (optionally) sync user photos from the User Profile Service to SalesForce Chatter.
  • Multiple Language Support
    This one is also in the MAYBE category. I started the work back in 1.4 but it never got finished due to other priorities. I know a lot of you have asked for it – I am trying to fit it in.

Probably will be a lot more added to that list before 1.6 is finalized. Not seeing a feature you need? Better let me know soon so I can consider it for inclusion in 1.6. Keep that feedback coming! Thanks.

  1. Having the ability to Share to a specific group would be really beneficial to us.
    Additionally having the ability to set a default group to the Share could be a bonus.
