User Syncing & Provisioning in Simpplr

Everest allows system admins to provision Google users directly in Simpplr. Additionally, Azure Active Directory now includes an option to map and sync attributes directly with attributes in Simpplr.



Native video:

Denali adds native video as a premium feature. This add-on provides a secure and reliable platform for video sharing. Videos can be added directly into feeds, posted with comments or attached to content. Videos no longer require third party hosting or sharing links and can all be easily managed within Simpplr. If you’re interested in native video, please reach out to your Simpplr customer success manager.

Smart notifications:

Denali improves Simpplr notifications by grouping similar in-app notifications together, reducing noise. With the introduction of browser notifications, and restructuring notification settings to allow on/off enablement for groups, Denali’s improved notifications allow you even greater control over your comms.   

Site members and followers:

With the introduction of site followers, site managers can now send important communications to only a site’s members, or its followers. If a user follows a site, they’ll get general updates and content access. If they become a site member, they’ll get all updates and full content access



Navigation enhancements:

With Cerro, users can enjoy a new sites index page and sites menu for a streamlined navigation experience.

Smart feed enhancements:

We have improved smart feed functionality to push more and better personalized content to your users. Cerro introduces three new posts: Must-read posts, Upcoming events posts, and People posts (for posts about people - birthdays, new hires and work anniversaries).

Google Drive integration:

The new and improved google drive integration lets users access their google drive files from both Shared drives and My Drive in Simpplr and the files from linked google drive folders can be searched directly in Simpplr. Moreover, the new google drive file tile is an easier way to access your recent and starred google drive files in Simpplr. As an improvement to all file storage integrations, you no longer have to enter the client ID and secret when connecting a file storage account.


Now alerts and must-reads can be broadcasted to users from multiple channels, like emails, SMS and in-app notifications as well. Get important information to your users as quickly as possible by composing alert messages, marking them must-read, and choosing the best channel(s) to reach your users.

Protected authors:

With Cerro, app managers can control who is publishing/editing on an authors' behalf, and both author and contributors of a piece of content receive notifications whenever changes are made.

Analytics enhancements:

With Cerro, our improved analytics come with a host of new capabilities: admins can now view benchmarks for important metrics and receive recommendations, and find content referral data from Simpplr emails. The overall experience has been improved as well: important metrics have clearer explanations, default range has been adjusted to Last 30 Days, and content views and engagements can now be compared side-by-side. Moreover, analytics tabs have been renamed and reorganized according to user feedback.

Google Calendar integration:

Display google calendar in the events on your dashboard.

ADA compliance:

Simpplr is actively working with an external vendor, and is committed to achieving ADA compliance.

Events enhancements:

It’s now easier to manage event attendees, get notified for updates, and understand time zone differences.


Governance for expertise has been improved. App Managers now can control who can create a new expertise, and a new interface for managing the expertise list has been added. From this interface, App Managers can view/search/add/edit/delete expertise.


Site content pages:

Content navigation has been significantly improved with the new content tab, combining pages, albums and events into a single list.
