When to use this plugin?

Your teams are working on cutting-edge and competitive subjects, and are required to keep a watchful eye on the web. Turn this technological or competitive market watch into a collective and collaborative process!

Instead of sending emails to share your readings, use JMag: the shared pages benefit all your teams. They are thus capitalized and searchable, as well as the conversations associated with these pages: enough to feed your internal innovation process by allowing all of your collaborators to contribute on different themes.

What does this plugin do?

The JMag plugin is a collaborative tool for market watch and intelligence research. It allows users to share articles, sites and more generally web pages that seem relevant to them during their web browsing. These pages are shared in spaces and classified into categories. Users can comment, like and re-share. JMag mainly consists of two components:

  • a collection / sharing system
  • and an application to consult and navigate the collected pages

Collecting and sharing pages

A page share includes a title, a description, a visual and the URL of the page in question. The plugin automatically pre-fills these fields from the RUL, and invites the sharing user to also post a first comment about this page.

This information is indexed by the search engine, thus making it possible to search for and find the shared pages.

JMag offers several ways to collect pages:

  • One-click sharing: directly from the page you want to share and thanks to the JMag extension available on Chrome , Firefox and Opera. Microsoft IE11 and Edge users have a Bookmarklet equivalent to add to their favorites.
  • Sharing through the activity feed: to share a link via its URL, as simply as sharing a micro-blogging in the activity wall.
  • Sharing through the read-it-later: from its reading list (module JReading). Indeed, before sharing in JMag, users can give themselves time to read in detail the content of a page by collecting in their personal reading list.

JMag consultation and navigation

To consult the shared pages, the JMag plugin provides a dedicated application. It can be used transversally or within a collaborative space. In a transversal way, the user has access to all the shared pages within all the spaces to which they are attached (provided the users have the correct access rights). Within a collaborative space, the user only sees the pages attached to this space.

This interface allows users to :

  • Filter to search for pages according to different criteria (text, author, categories, ...).
  • Show new pages (not yet viewed) or the ones added to the user's reading list.
  • Quickly mark a page as already seen by clicking on the cross at the top right of each card.
  • View the description and conversations associated with a page, and interact with likes and comments
  • Recommend a page to other members
  • Add a page to the user's reading list (to be read later)
  • Go directly to the content (via the associated URL)

Pages shared in the JMag can also be highlighted in a portal via a carousel or a list.

Mobile application

The JMag plugin is fully available in the mobileJMobile mobile application . It is one of the most relevant uses in mobility:

  • to view shared pages in JMag
  • to share from the user's mobile web browser or other mobile apps
