1.6 - Pulse Linkbacks, Editor Fixes, Stream Card Improvements - 2020‑06‑25

June 25th, 2020

Last month we brought references to Pulse.

Pulse's References enable a new level of communication for leaders who need to connect existing chunks of knowledge that were previously shared. This not only helps them in writing in a much more comprehensive way but it also helps the end-reader absorbing context and consuming information in a more meaningful way.

References allow you to easily link other updates to your posts, which until now were impossible to see where a specific post was originally referenced.

We're excited to introduce linkbacks. Linkbacks allow you to keep track of what's being linked where.

Visualize Linkbacks

To see where a specific pulse has been mentioned, scroll down to the bottom of the update.
