The activity stream is the central information and communication hub inside your XELOS system. Post new status updates (microblogging), comment on documents written by your colleagues and point out interesting articles to your entire team.
Users can comment on news-posts, tasks, documents, etc. in real-time. They can give feedback to colleagues, update people on a project’s progress and much more. Your colleagues then receive comments and feedback right away.
Inside the forum users can post new topics they wish to discuss and ask questions. This can be done in simple question-and-answer form or forums can be more elaborate, allowing for posting and voting on ideas, creating categories for different types of discussions, etc.
The chat feature is fundamental to the communication inside every Social Intranet. It offers an uncomplicated way to exchange ideas and opinions with individual colleagues or in group chats. It even allows the quick transfer of documents. You can chat directly with people if they are online or write and answer messages asynchronously.
Using the XELOS apps for iOS and Android, you can access your XELOS intranet from anywhere on your smartphone or tablet. XELOS allows you to stay up to date on all new developments and have access to your files and projects. Using the intelligent QR-scanner you can verify your mobile device and ensure secure access to the system.
Write announcements and communicate important news and notifications for everyone to see with the help of XELOS’s News app. Edit existing news with the help of the integrated WYSIWYG editor and publish the news when ready.

Through the included social features such as likes, mentions and notifications, users can quickly show their approval, share documents and mention interesting posts to their colleagues and receive immediate updates and feedback from other users.
The user directory is an essential feature in every business’s intranet. It is an online directory containing every user’s contact information, expertise and additional personal information. You can use it to quickly find “experts” with the right skillset for your new projects. The information in the system can be filled through existing systems such as Active Directory.
