Our monthly roundup of all of the Workplace product announcements in the last month. And introducing access to Workplace without a company email address…

This month, we made a giant leap in connecting everyone! Now you no longer need an email address to access Workplace and we added greater visibility when collaborating with other companies.

These seemingly small features make a big impact for dispersed companies with employees on the go.

Connecting everyone just got easier

We've built Workplace to give everyone in your organisation a voice – not just people with a company email address.

That means from the corporate office, the shop floor, out in the field and everywhere in between.

We're making it even easier to connect coworkers. Admins can now create accounts for any employee, with or without an email address.

Say goodbye to flyers in break rooms and trickle-down communication – a connected workplace is now within reach.

You can now create Workplace accounts by providing an employee ID instead of an email address.

Workplace will generate unique access codes to distribute to any employees without an email address so they can access Workplace and create a custom username and password… no email address required.

Simply enable the feature from Admin Panel preferences and unlock Workplace for your everyone in your company. Learn more here.

Greater control of multi-company groups
