All the latest Workplace product announcements and feature releases.
This month, we’re excited to share updates to Draft For, filter search results, polls and more. Read on for more detail!Publish For without approval
Publish For without approval
This highly requested feature to Draft For is here. Post drafters can now publish posts as someone else without needing a review or approval from the post author. When published, the post will appear from the final author’s profile and the author will receive a notification that a post has been made on their behalf. A system admin needs to grant this additional permission under the Draft For section of the Admin Panel. Draft For is now also available on mobile Android devices.

Improvements to polls
We’ve made polls even better with new options to help you get the information you need. You can now do the following (on desktop only):
- Set a poll end time to automatically close the poll
- Add images to give additional context on poll choices
- Export results into an Excel spreadsheet
- Reduce voting bias by shuffling options and hiding who votes on each option until voting ends
Anyone can vote on any type of poll on mobile or desktop. Learn how to create a poll on Workplace.Attach files to event pages

Event organizers can now upload files, such as presentations and documents, to event pages to provide audiences with additional context on the topics that will be discussed during the event. Learn more about how to Organize virtual events that rock.Duplicating Knowledge Library category
Duplicating Knowledge Library category
We’ve made duplicating Knowledge Library categories and moving them easier by combining them into one step. When duplicating a Knowledge Library category, category editors can now choose where to save it, instead of duplicating it in place. You can duplicate any category or subcategory and save it as a subcategory under any existing category or subcategory, or as a new category of its own. Learn more about building and managing your Knowledge Library in the Knowledge Library Resource Hub.Filter search results on WorkChat
