Newired 22.1 New Release

Newired 22.1 New Release



The spring is coming and so is the new release: Newired 22.1

This is a first milestone on our release journey towards Newired 23 and it brings important features that the Enterprise customers were looking for:

  • Integrates the Enterprise Identity Management environments and supports Single Sign On;
  • Makes it possible to enforce step transition;
  • Playbook progress tracking.


1. Single Sign On

Customers have typically established processes and tools for Single Sign On (SSO) and Identity Management. Now, they do not need to create Newired users manually any longer. Creation of new users is automatic (i.e. a new employee gets Newired identity after a successful SSO login).

In addition, the shared identity management ensures the corporate wide password policies and single user activation/ deactivation procedures.

2. Enforce Step Transitions

When you define a “Product Tour” journey that guides the user through the application, you may find it mandatory to block the interaction with any item on the page, except the “Next” button, so that the user mostly just clicks “Next”, “Next”, “Next”. 

At the same time, for “Assist Me” type of journey, you may need the user to be filling some data on the page and only once the user has finished, he/she shall click “Next”. 



3. Playbooks

3.1 Playbook Progress
A feature that every Playbook user has been asking for – the system shall report how far am I with my onboarding checklist.

3.2 Export to Word

You may be using the Export to Word feature in order to let your testers know how Journeys are supposed to work, or you may be running through the formal approval of the content before it is published to the end users. 

In both cases, you may need to export the information on how the Playbooks are structured, so now the Playbooks are also exported to MS Word documents.

3.3 Playbooks – First Class Citizens
To highlight how important the Playbooks are for structuring the digital adoption content, they become now exposed in the Editor as primary entities as a 3rd tab in the sidebar.
