Today we are very excited to announce a new release for MadCap Pulse, the latest application designed by MadCap Software.

MadCap Pulse adds analytics & reporting, topic ratings and social collaboration — three components used separately or together — to provide insight into how users use and interact with your content. By leveraging these technologies, MadCap Pulse helps improve your content quality, reduce technical support calls, and enhance the end user experience.

  • Gain Insight into User Activity and Usage with Powerful Analytics & Reporting
  • Add Topic Ratings for Feedback on Content Quality and Helpfulness
  • Improve Customer Satisfaction, Foster Communication and Reduce Support Inquiries by Adding a Social Collaboration Layer to Your Published Documentation

This new release adds features and enhancements that make it easier than ever to gain insight into how users use, value and interact with your content.

New in this release:

Subscribe to Content and Topic Activities

Easily subscribe to content, including feeds, topics and more, all with a single click. You and your users can now be made aware of and view any comments and content updates immediately.

Comment Moderation

Ensure comments are relevant and appropriate by accepting or rejecting posts and user comments. All pending posts are emailed to moderators for approval prior to going live.

File Sharing with Groups and Topics

Share files with others in the community, using the Files app (located under Your Apps), or upload files (documents, videos, images and links) directly to topics in the comment stream.

Email Notifications on User Activity

Receive customized email notifications on user activity, such as when comments are added to topics or when a new group is created. Administrators and Employees can subscribe to topics, and get linked directly to the post/activities for review.

And much more.
