Microsoft Social Engagement 2017 Update 1.9 is ready and will be released in October 2017. This article describes the fixes, and other changes that are included in this update.

New and updated features

Microsoft Social Engagement 2017 Update 1.9 introduces the following features:

User experience clean-up for Search Setup and Settings

Settings and Search Setup now follow common patterns in how you confirm the web forms. It's clearer where to change the name of a search topic category or a search topic in the second panel instead of the overview panel. Quota information is now shown in the first panel to make sure all users have immediate access to it on any device.

Post list improved to give easy access to post details

With the goal of simplifying how to open the details view of a post, we added a small header to each post that identifies the type of post it is and provides an Open control that you use to see post details. As before, you can't open the details view for posts listed in the threads section of post details—those posts don't show the Open control.

Post details improved to distinguish a child post from its parent post

Whenever you open a post that has a parent post, you can switch to that parent post by selecting the content. Based on feedback, and to further improve keyboard navigation, we now show headings for each section by using an expand/collapse control. When selected, it will expand or collapse that part of the post details view.

Twitter data use license requirements

Your use of Twitter data in the Microsoft Social Engagement product is subject to the Twitter Terms of Services (“ToS”). We recommend you review these terms carefully, as failure to observe these terms can result in a loss of access to Twitter data in Social Engagement. For your ease of reference, a link to the Twitter ToS is included in the footer of every page in the Social Engagement service.
