What's new in Workplace?
This month we are launching shift cover, a new post type that makes it easy for frontline workers to switch shifts and keep managers in the loop. We're also adding the option to subscribe to Knowledge Library categories, which will be available to everyone by the end of November.
In addition to our latest product updates, we're excited to announce new learning content on the Workplace Academy. We've launched two new live training courses and five new self-paced courses to help you get the most out of Workplace. Read on to find out more about these resources as well as the new culture carrier toolkit.
Shift cover made easy
We've made it easier than ever for frontline workers to find coverage and request to cover their colleagues' shifts in Workplace. Shift Cover posts provide an easy-to-use template for shift coverage requests, and ensure that frontline managers have visibility and final approval on requests made in their group. Any employee looking for Shift Cover requests can find them in the new Shifts tab in the group.
Watch the video below for a quick tutorial on Shift Cover. For step-by-step instructions on how to create a Shift Cover post, visit the Help Centre.
Get real-time updates on Knowledge Library
We've added the option to subscribe to any Knowledge Library categories or subcategories to receive regular updates on edits, comments and reactions. When editors make a change to Knowledge Library content, they can decide if an update is important enough to send out notifications to subscribers. The ability to subscribe to notifications will be available to everyone by the end of November.

The culture carrier toolkit
Culture carriers are people who embody your company's values and shape your shared culture. It could be anyone, from the boardroom to the shop floor who has the energy and influence to drive cultural change. This toolkit includes a guide to help you identify and empower your culture carriers, as well as a set of downloadable materials to help you recognise them publicly in an internal campaign.
