A Unified Hey! Inbox

Last mid-December 2017, the company announced a visual refresh to make the application easier to use. One of the first major changes centered on the simplification of the navigation bar. From 7 items on the menu, it was reduced to 4, namely: Home, Hey!, Activity, and Find. Under the Hey! menu, users will also find their Pings direct messages and Campfires chat rooms. And as previously, users can find their posts, comments, assignments, check-ins and @mentions there also.
