Salt Enterprise 10.1 Introduces Secure Broadcast Channels!

The Salt Enterprise 10.1 release includes a highly strategic new feature alongside some very important application improvements.

Secure Message Broadcasting is now available within the Salt Enterprise system. This will allow a select number of trusted individuals within organisations to transmit crucial information to large numbers of people. These messages can be labelled with a specific 'severity' level to highlight importance and need to react.

Improvements were also made across the iOS and Android clients, allowing more effective notification handling, as well as major bug fixes around message burning, guest invites, attachments fixes and functional group chat improvements.

Features

  • Secure Message Broadcasting is now available. Channels are defined within the Salt Enterprise Portal allowing "broadcasters" to communicate text, images, audio and video content to channel members.

Improvements

  • When leaving a group chat the last user to leave may only disband the group.

Bug Fixes
