New Features


Better navigation between Admin panel and frontend app

Intranet administrators often need to switch between using the frontend of an app and its corresponding Admin panel. We’ve now made that process 3x faster (we timed it) by adding a direct link that lets you switch between frontend and backend.


Design Customisation

Your intranet main menu can now be displayed as a side menu, ideal for those who are more accustomed to the layout of mobile apps. You can also expand the layout of your intranet to “full width”, which is great for users with large computer monitors.
