Welcome to our quarterly product roundup, where we look at the recent exciting updates and enhancements from Q3 releases in the Firstup platform. We’re thrilled to share new integrations and features that make your Creator Studio experience even more efficient, foster inclusivity, and enhance your employee engagement across your entire ecosystem. So, let’s dive in.

Bridging the gap with the Firstup Microsoft Teams App

One of the standout features from this quarter is the launch of the Firstup Microsoft Teams App. We know that context switching between applications can cost employees valuable time and productivity. To address this, we’ve introduced a highly anticipated integration that seamlessly connects your Firstup community with Microsoft Teams.

Tab Experience Bundled

This self-service integration allows you to bring your Firstup experiences directly into the Microsoft Teams environment, both on desktop and mobile. It’s the bridge your employees need to access companywide, department-specific, and personalized content where they spend most of their workday. This integration also provides immediate access to resources and productivity boosters like Shortcuts and digital assistant notifications.

But that’s not all! This integration also enables you to map specific Firstup Topics to corresponding Microsoft Teams channels, ensuring your communications automatically reach both places. We’re excited to see how this integration can revolutionize your team’s workflow.

Enhanced audience management, publishing flexibility, and inclusivity for your employee experience

Our focus for these new features was to make your Creator Studio experience even better by enhancing audience management and publishing flexibility. 

Freeform preferred pronouns 

We’ve taken a step toward fostering inclusivity by allowing employees to express their pronouns authentically in their profile settings.
