Make way for Release 4.9! Open the doors to better planning and staying on top of your content. Plan and manage your content flow and meetings, boost your branding, make your internal communication a safe haven with comment moderation, and much more.
Learn all about it below.
Optimize content scheduling and maximize reach with our new Editorial Calendar. The Editorial Calendar acts as a central planning board for editors to visualize content planning and easily identify and resolve scheduling conflicts. With a single click, editors have an overview of the content and can see who will receive it, which notification types are activated, and more! This way, your employees aren’t swamped with notifications and every content piece gets the attention it deserves.
Survey Result Filters
Find the exact data you’re looking for with survey result filters. Activate filters for your editors in the profile fields settings. Then they can narrow down and analyze the results of surveys in the Studio with one or more filters, getting the specific information they need, when they need it.
Survey Result Sharing
Share survey results with your employees in real time! After your employees submit their own surveys, give them the opportunity to see a quick overview of how others answered. They have the option to see averages and additional detailed breakdowns for each survey question. You can customize this setting individually for each survey. Help to increase your engagement and transparency for any kind of survey!
Improved Comment Moderation
We've continued tinkering with our new Comment Moderation flows. In addition to the hide and approve comment flows introduced in our last release, we now offer an improved remove function. When removing a comment, you can choose to keep other comments in the thread intact or permanently remove all comments in the thread. Similarly, there is now increased transparency regarding whether a comment was deleted by its author or the moderation team.
Customize the Quiz Calendar
Last release, we launched our new and improved Quiz Calendar to replace the Advent Calendar. Now you can make the Quiz Calendar an even more fun and festive experience with custom backgrounds. Have an image that perfectly suits the vibe you want to set around your quiz calendar? Now you can easily upload it in the settings and hype up excitement for your employees!
Customizing your app just got easier! Now you can upload custom icons for your desktop and mobile app menu directly from the Studio. Boost your brand while helping your employees feel right at home in the app with familiar logos and icons.
Google Calendar Widget
After a great response to the Google Drive widget, we're unveiling our next exciting Google widget for desktop — The Google Calendar widget! You can configure the widget so that your employees will see meetings from either a team calendar or their individual calendar in a convenient list view embedded on a page. Employees can open meetings in a new tab right from the widget!

The comments overview in the Studio has a brand new look! It’s now easier than ever to manage comments with clear status badges, user avatars, and infinite scrolling!
Update Reminders for Pages
Employee Experience Intranet
Stay on top of content with handy Update Reminders for Pages. Set each update reminder according to the needs of your content and ensure your employees always have the most current information at their fingertips.
- We’re introducing six new content languages: Maori, Spanish (Mexico), Arabic (Egypt), Somali, Tamil (India), and Filipino (Tagalog).
- With our new beta Comment Moderation feature, a placeholder will appear for comments deleted on news posts to show they were deleted by their author. Replies to the comment will remain visible so that important information isn’t lost and to increase transparency.
- Streamline your search settings: The searchability of profile fields now follows the same rules in the search of the Employee Directory and the general search.
- Additionally, the general search now follows the same visibility settings as the employee directory. This means only users with access to the Employee Directory will see the ‘Users’ tab when searching your app or intranet.
- Using the image gallery in News just got better! Now you can view all images in a specific gallery in full-screen mode, not just the ones in the teaser. If there are multiple galleries in a post, you’ll only see the images from the specific gallery you’re clicking or sliding through, not the images from all the galleries in the post.
- We no longer support the Internet Explorer browser. If your organization still uses Internet Explorer, Staffbase recommends trying the Microsoft Edge browser in compatibility mode.
Plugins and Widgets
- Embedding surveys from the Surveys plugin is now possible on news and pages using the Plugin widget.
