Changes in Jive 9

Bulk content management
You can now make bulk changes to content items with the Bulk Manage Content feature. For more information on how to use this feature and what it offers, see Making bulk changes to content in places.
Jive Daily Hosted improvements
Jive Daily Hosted is now available for hosted and on-premise communities and compatible with Jive 9. For more information about changes to the app, see Release Notes – Jive Daily Hosted on Worx. For more information on how to use Jive Daily Hosted, see the Jive Daily Help.
Copy document
Documents now have a Copy Document action that creates a new piece of content from an existing document. It copies the title, body, and publishing information (place, category, tags) from the original document. Documents can be copied as a new document, discussion, or blog post. This is a great way to make templates for others to use.
For more on this feature, see Copying content.

Apps Market EOL
We are removing the ability for customers to download Apps via the Apps Market in Jive 9.0.0. Apps will continue to function and be available for download via the Add-ons page. No functionality will be lost. During the upgrade process all downloaded apps will be converted to Add-ons. The Apps menu item will still be displayed and Apps will continue to function should customers have dependencies on those Apps. For more information, see Apps market EOL in Jive 9 on Worx.
Deal Room add-on
We are deprecating the Deal Room add-on as of July 2017. Please use the Salesforce Chatter add-on to enrich your Jive Activity stream with content from Salesforce.
