Microsoft Social Engagement 2016 Update 1.6


Microsoft Social Engagement 2016 Update 1.6 is ready and will be released in June 2016. This article describes the features, fixes, and other changes that are included in this update.

New features introduced in Microsoft Social Engagement 2016 Update 1.6

Update 1.6 introduces the following features:
  • Work more efficiently in streams and post lists
    Increase your productivity and work smoothly with posts. Streams and post lists now let you quickly skip to the next post as you review post details. Click the Previous/Next arrows to quickly move between posts. And Social Engagement now buffers all actions you apply to a post, saving you valuable time by queuing actions rather than having to complete every action before you can apply the next one.
  • Introducing smart data sets
    Customers now have the convenience of working with smart data sets—data sets that only display applicable filters. Smart data sets ensure that customers will always configure valid data sets. A notification will appear if you're using a filter that is not supported by an interaction area.
  • See the expected post volume for your filters in automation rules
    Ensure the volume of posts that your automation rule could potentially execute actions on is within your expectations. When you select the filters for your automation rule, you will now see the matching volume of posts based on actual historical data.
