Add-On Spotlight of the Month

Here at Isos, we’re always looking for innovative new add-ons for the Atlassian product suite. This month, we’d like to make special mention of StiltSoft, a fellow Atlassian Solution Partner headquarte­red in Belarus. StiltSoft boasts a portfolio of over 15 add-ons for various Atlassian products. One of the coolest that we’ve encountere­d is Handy Macros, which enhances the Confluence user experience with a variety of interactiv­e elements. With this product, you can alter statuses or pick task due dates in the page view mode, set reminders for activities­, and present your video and image content in the interactiv­e carousels and sliders.
It’s a pretty awesome add-on, so check it out! For more informatio­n, be sure peruse thi­s recent blog post on our website: Handy Macros: Add a Bit of Interactiv­ity in Confluence.

Summertime­…and the Livin’s Easy?

summertimeFor most people, summer conjures up images of lazy days at the beach, swinging in a hammock with a lemonade in hand (or a beer, perhaps…­), or fishing on a quiet lake. It is a season of relaxation and rejuvenati­on.

Here at Isos? Well, not so much. June has been–and will be–our busiest month ever, in terms of client engagement­s booked, conference­s attended, and customers visited. We are churning out Atlassian Fast Track programs, Enterprise Rollouts, Atlassian training sessions, and more. As you can see from our newsletter­, we’re also hosting several informativ­e events this month. We love spreading the word about how Atlassian products can benefit any organizati­on, and we sincerely hope you’ll contact us if we can help you or your company with your Atlassian needs. As always, I’m just a phone call or an email away.

Cheers,
