What changes will I notice?
We now use the Microsoft Office document viewer to preview Word, Excel and Powerpoint files in the Document Library. PDF files continue to be previewed using the Google Docs Viewer.
The other large updates during this release were to our two new addons: ProudCity Kiosk and ProudCity Intranet. Keep an eye on our Blog during the next couple weeks for examples and videos of our two newest platforms. Let us know if you are interested in bringing an interactive Directory to your City Hall, or better project management to your city operations.
