This month’s Admin user group was hosted by Slalom a US consultancy that has just created an office in London. Thanks Slalom for a great venue overlooking the Thames!

First we had Andy talking about Slalom. Slalom is a US based consultancy that has only recently moved over to the EU with their first office in London. First up was Matt with his Chatter talk. Have to say it was really interesting! How do you get analytics on who has viewed chatter groups or feeds and surface chatter analytics as a global VisualForce action, kinda neat.

Then we had Matt with his Chatter talk “I didn’t know chatter could do that”.

Have to say it was really interesting! How do you get analytics on who has viewed chatter groups or feeds? Then with the analytics you have gained how do you visualise that to all your users? via a global VisualForce action of course ๐Ÿ™‚ kinda neat. I’ve actually been working on a chatter project myself recently had have come up with similar limitations.

Matt also showed how to get your standard or lighting chatter feed to appear in SharePoint using Lightning Out. You can find out more about lightning out here!

Finally, we had a feedback session to find out from the members what was working and what wasn’t with the user group. What do members want to see and we gained some great insight. Great to see the 5min features are doing well ๐Ÿ™‚
