This feature will effectively help your employees stay on top of company news and strengthen their knowledge and engagement in their job on-site or on the go.

Configure add to home screen

Tip for easy uploads of videos and images to your content library

Creating engaging communication calls for a dash of visuals like images and short videos to make it all more dynamic. If you took the pictures from your last company event on your phone anyway, why not make the upload to Actimo directly from your phone? 


  1. Create a message with the Upload module - remember you can direct all the contact from this message into a particular folder in your content library

  2. Go to the publish page and distribute the message to the people that need to be able to share content

  3. Add this message to your home screen to always have it available for uploading the good moments caught on camera
