Update OpenLucius | Custom section names, group header, group archive and more

blog header image

Based on user feedback and own experience, we built new features and tuned existing ones. Here are the updates:

1. Choose your own section names

You can now choose a custom name for each section, you can even provide different names in different groups. Go to the group settings and choose your custom section names:


See your own section names:


2. Upload header image per group

You can now upload a header image in the group settings:

upload header

group header

3. Block and unblock users

User managers were already able to block users, but there wasn't a 'blocked users' list yet. That is now available including 'reactivate' function:

block user

reactive user

4. Archive groups

It's now possible to archive groups and of course also de-archive them:

archive group

You can find the archived groups via the drop down behind 'Groups' in the left sidebar:

groups archive

Unarchive a group If you click on the title of an archived group, you can access it just like an active group and uncheck 'Archive this group' in Group settings.

5. Linked stream items

All items in the activity stream are now linked to the corresponding content details page In example underneath, a message, files and icebreakers:
