Connecting everyone in your company just got a lot easier with the latest update from Workplace. Employees no longer need company email addresses to use the Workplace Premium version of Workplace by Facebook.
From the corporate office to the shop floor, Workplace is built to give everyone in your organisation a voice, not just people with a company email address.
Workplace are now making it even easier to connect coworkers. Admins can now create accounts for any employee, with our without an email address. Say goodbye to flyers in break rooms and trickle down communication, a connected workplace is now within reach.
This update came not long after their acquisition with Redkix - the email-friendly team messaging platform. It certainly looks like Workplace is taking the right steps in achieving their goal of complete connectivity.
Take a look at Bloomberg's interview with the VP of Workplace - Julien Codorniou, on 'an inside look at Workplace by Facebook'.
How does it work?
Workplace accounts can now be created by providing an employee ID instead of an email address. Once these accounts are created, Workplace will generate unique access codes to distribute to any employees without email so that they can access Workplace and create a custom username and password... no email required.
Just enable the feature from Admin Panel Preferences and unlock Workplace for your entire company.
What does this mean?
With this new update and their acquisition with Redkix, it proves that Workplace are maturing as a SaaS vendor and I'm looking forward to how far and fast the company will develop in the next few years.
