ThoughtFarmer Sample Screenshot

Accountants, engineers, managers — they all have different needs from the intranet. Intelligently personalize home page news and content according to each discrete audience at your organization.

Discussion Capture

Get the conversation started with dedicated discussion forums. Build a Q&A, an Idea Incubator or a Travel Forum. Get notified of new comments via e-mail, or just look for the “Unread” flag.

Optional Microsoft Exchange integration lets you manage distribution list membership within ThoughtFarmer or Exchange.

ThoughtFarmer Mobile

ThoughtFarmer's mobile web app is built for hurried, one-handed, goal-oriented operation. Find a colleague’s phone number; scan your intranet’s headlines; comment on a time-sensitive discussion.

Employee Directory

The Employee Directory makes it easy to browse, sort and filter people. Listings are easy to scan, and the data displayed is configurable by administrators, so you can choose to show the contact info most pertinent to your organization.

The left-hand filters panel lets you narrow down by department, location, project, tag, and more, progressively filtering down to the person you’re looking for.
