Zug, 27. September 2022, VNCtalk Version 4.0 adds extensive features for enterprise communication and collaboration.

VNCtalk is the top-notch enterprise real-time communication solution within the VNClagoon Enterprise Product Suite and contains chat, video and audio conferencing, screen sharing, voice messaging, file sharing, broadcasts, document collaboration and much more.

About 10 years ago, we very carefully selected best of breed open source platforms and software components as a starting point for our VNClagoon product stack and have been enhancing the underlying functionalities and technologies significantly since then – writing hundreds of thousands lines of code. The result is a seamlessly integrated suite of communication and collaboration products, with stable and secure backends as well as exceptionally adaptable frontend clients for all products, thus also VNCtalk. The VNClagoon suite allows the modularizing and repackaging of all products, adding any kind of dashboard or other UI and enabling a limitless scale out at the backend.

So, what’s new in VNCtalk version 4?

In VNCtalk 4.0 we implemented the following new features:

  1. New user role “Audience” in group chats
  2. Survey and Polling Tool
  3. Emoji reactions to messages
  4. Bulk delete your own messages and attachments from chat history after a predefined period
  5. Document Preview with ONLYOFFICE
  6. Copy images from chats to clipboard

For detailed information on VNCtalk Version 4.0, please also check our Release Notes. Take a look at the main features of the new version:

1. New User Role “Audience”:

In large group chats with many participants, e.g. in team or company group chats, the moderator might want to prevent some or all members from actively participating and to assign them “read only” permissions.

Therefore, additionally to the already existing two permission categories in group chats: “Participant” and “Moderator”, we have now added the new category “Audience”.

This allows the moderator of a group chat to decide which participants are active and which participants can follow the chat but are “muted”.

2. Yes? No? Maybe? Ask your team with the new Survey Module

Another great new feature is our VNCtalk Survey Module. Integrated directly in VNCtalk and accessible from chats, we’ve added the possibility to gather, review, evaluate and analyze chat participants’ views and opinions in a quick survey. Choose a title, select your question mode (e.g. text, check-box, dropdown), add your questions with a description. You can then publish your survey directly in the respective chat and the members of the chat can answer the survey with just a few clicks.

The visual representation of survey results will make it easier to identify trends, draw conclusions, and use the data and gathered information for your organization. To get a quick overview and visualize the results of your survey, the results are best represented in a chart or graph. The type of chart you should choose depends on the nature of your data. You can create anonymous surveys as well, which will show the results without names.

3. Emoji reactions to messages – give a “Thumbs Up” or a smile

We received various customer requests for a “quick-reaction” option and implemented the new emoji reaction with VNCtalk 4.0.

Now you can quickly engage in chats and react on messages with seven different emojis instead of typing a message. Just click on the emoji icon in the footer of any chat message and select the respective emoji. Of course you can also see who has responded in what way to messages.

4. Document Preview with ONLYOFFICE

Now you are able to open any document you’ve sent or received directly in VNCtalk with ONLYOFFICE document preview with a double click. You can comment and collaborate on documents. The comments are displayed with the user’s name next to the document. This makes it quick and easy to discuss adjustments or content in the document preview and collaborate on documents. You can also print the document and download the document directly from the preview.

5. Bulk delete your own messages & attachments

For more privacy and storage you can now remove chat history including files and messages automatically after a predefined period, e.g. 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days.

VNCtalk 4.0 Look & Feel:

In our brand new VNCtalk 4.0 video you can quickly get a first impression of the new features, UI and UX Changes:

Our Professional Services Engineer Jaydeep likes one VNCtalk 4.0 feature in particular.

A quote from him:

“I am very excited about the VNCtalk “Survey Tool”. It will help us to quickly gather the opinions of our team members. Especially in remote or hybrid teams, like here at VNC, this is extremely useful. I like the clear structure of the tool and the possibility to display the survey results in charts. Besides our project management tool VNCproject, VNCtalk is definitely the tool I use most often when collaborating with my team.”
