What's New in Workplace? February 2023
All the latest Workplace product announcements and feature releases.
This month, we’re excited to share exciting new updates to groups, polls and more.Manage your Feed
Manage your Feed
Manage your Feed gives people more control over which posts to prioritize in their Feed. People can prioritize posts based on who they’re following, and which groups they prioritize.Export group members easily from the members list
Export group members easily from the members list
Everyone in a group can now export a list of group members directly from the members list view. Previously, this was only available to system admins from the Admin Panel. This list will be in XLSX format and will be downloaded immediately for groups with under 1,000 members. For groups with over 1,000 members, people will receive an email with a link to download the list.Improvements to Polls
Improvements to Polls
Polls in the post composer now have expanded capabilities and settings. When creating a poll, people can now set an end time, add images, export results, and reduce voting bias by shuffling options and hiding voter identity until voting ends (this is available only in the desktop web version of Workplace). Anyone can vote on any type of poll on mobile or desktop, including those with images and reduced voting bias enabled.

Use Knowledge Library People Sets
System admins can now choose to use People Sets when setting who can view a Knowledge Library category. This gives a greater degree of control and allows them to use existing sets that have already been created. This can be done on the desktop web version of Workplace only.

Change visibility of groups with over 5,000 people
Previously, it was not possible to change private groups to public when they had more than 5,000 members. We are giving more flexibility to group admins so they can now change any private groups to public from group settings, regardless of the group size.
