Netvibes Premium Dashboard 1.2: New Features & Improvements

It’s been two months since we launched Netvibes Premium, our powerful analytics solution for brand managers and social media professionals, and we’re constantly listening to our users remarks and suggestions to make it an even better product.

This week we’ll launch new features and improvements for both our Premium and Basic dashboards.

Social Pack Improvements (for Premium)

We listened to your feedbacks and improved our charts to make them more readable in all situations, even with large scales and extended period of analysis. We also added a color picker which allows you to choose between five different colors for every social pack widget and add clarity to your dashboard.

Highlights on charts have also been improved: relevant legend is now highlighted when you move your mouse over a particular section of a chart. And vice versa.

On widgets with sources or authors, you can now go directly to the domain by simply clicking on the favicon on the left. You can also switch to a new view that lists all unique sources, with no limitation.

Facebook Improvements (for Basic & Premium)

But we also thought about our Basic users and upgraded our Facebook widget. The widget will now allow you to drag & follow any user name or page in your timeline to start following it in a new widget. Easy!

Another thing you can now do with the Facebook widget is collapse or expand it. To gain space on your Dashboard, you can choose to only show its description and expand it back to the full widget when you need to have access to the whole timeline. Perfect for users who need to monitor a lot of Facebook timelines.

Finally we’re happy to introduce our brand new Facebook Search widget. Easily parse through your Facebook content, unveil mentions and monitor brands or topics. Add it on your dashboard and try it right away!

As you can see, there are new things for everyone, both our Basic and Premium users. And if you want to discover our Premium solution with analytics features and see how it works, why not sign up for a free trial upgrade to Netvibes Premium today and try it out?

Roland Garros 2011: the Live Dashboard your boss don't want you to see

Like every year, at the same period, productivity in thousands of businesses in France will drop significantly. The reason? Roland Garros, one of the most prestigious Grand Slam tournaments where the best tennis players from around the world come to compete.

And like every year, you’ll be torn between watching the matches and make any progress in wrapping up this urgent report your boss wanted 48 hours ago.

Don’t try and deny it, we know.

And we know that during the competition, you’ll be constantly staring at dozens of web pages, searching for the latest results, while elusively trying to hide your lack of motivation behind an Excel spreadsheet.

Fortunately, Netvibes is here to help. To make sure you won’t miss a single bit of this sports event, while keeping your computer desktop clean and tidy, we’ve set up a live Dashboard that will cover everything you need to know: Twitter and social networks monitoring, press releases, player profiles, scores, videos and much more. And all this in real time of course.

The only thing we can’t provide is an alibi generator to help you explain your loss of productivity to your boss.

All in all, a great showcase of all the tools we provide with our Dashboards to allow you to “listen, learn and act” in real-time: SmartTagging, SmartFilters and our new Bookmarklet.

A step towards a greener Netvibes

EDIT : Your various feedback has been taken into account and we have decided to push a new transparent idle mode 🙂

After implementing SmartTagging and Real-Time Advanced Search, Netvibes continues to seek new ways of improving your daily Dashboard experience.

Constantly listening to your suggestions, we have implemented a couple of new features and polished the interface.

Idle Mode

To give our servers some rest and limit their energy consumption, we’ve implemented a new “Idle Mode”. After a while, if you’re not doing anything on your Dashboard, it will automatically switch to an idle mode, while remaining available as soon as you’re ready to get back to work.

Multi-Select
Following a regular request from our users, we’ve added a “Multi-Select” feature to our Dashboards. From now on, you won’t have to select all the relevant elements one by one. Simply check the “Multi-Select” box, select the appropriate time period and that’s it!

Interface Polishing
In addition to these new features, we’ve also provided our Dashboards with a few cosmetic improvements: a smaller Facebook “Like” button, Reader View enhancements, better placement for “action” and “views” buttons, and many other things. All in all, improvements aimed at making the interface more discreet while leaving more space for content.

Log in to Dashboard right now to discover all those new things. And as usual, feel free to send us your feedback.
