Publishing Tools

Create stunning Intranet content in seconds with a consistent and simple publishing process. No jargon to learn. No technical knowledge required.

Publishing is easy as 1, 2… (3 not even required)

An easy to learn, simple to use 2-step approach to publishing content ensures anybody with the right permissions can quickly share a news story, file, discussion, blog or photo with absolutely no training or technical know-how at all.

BBC-style news homepages

Easily feature any of your internal news stories on Oak’s highly visual homepages. Homepages can be automatically updated to show the latest news stories, complete with headlines, summaries and associated images, or controlled to show only those you want, from anywhere on your intranet.

Feature-rich content at your fingertips

Content creation is intuitive and fun, using an on-screen editor that shows you exactly how your content will look when it’s live, rather than forcing you through confusing wizards asking you to fill in nondescript boxes. Add pictures, videos, text and links directly into one of our perfectly laid out page templates and everyone will think you’re the next Leonardo Picasso!

Full ratings and comments across all content

You can choose to allow your users to rate and comment on any Oak content, giving you at-a-glance visibility of what’s hot as well as enabling our Search facility to return content based on its popularity. Comments can be automatically sent to content authors, enabling them to incorporate feedback for future revisions or action as appropriate for your organisation.

Stock imagery a plenty

Not only does Oak come with a pretty awesome Media Library but we also include thousands of royalty free stock photos for use within your own content. Simply search for what it is you are looking for, pick and modify the image to make it your own. Simple!

Include videos and pictures

Easily include photos or videos, within any Oak content, using the built-in Media Library application or create hyperlinks to anything available on your intranet or even the wider internet. Any image or video added using Media Library is displayed within its own special player and is fully compatible on all mobile devices.

embed videos in blogs


Got something to share – Oak includes an amazing blogging application that supports both personal and collaborative blogs. There is also a fantastic discovery tool that highlights all published blogs in case you missed something special.

Embedded videos

Any content you produce can include embedded video content from both Youtube and Vimeo. In addition, any video you upload (it can be any format) is automatically encoded by Oak and can be included within your content.

Oak Magazine

Oak learns about your interests and what’s important to you and proactively keeps you informed of any new content that might be relevant by creating an attractive personalised magazine (twice a day). Working like a news aggregator, it can show you news from both within and from outside the intranet (configurable by your admins), giving users an easy way to keep up to date with everything relevant to them.

Mandatory Read

Make sure nobody ever misses an important document again. By simply marking important content as Mandatory Read, which is then highlighted on each user’s homepage, you can automatically remind any group of users, department or even the entire organisation of important documents that must be read. Full audit trails are created for each Mandatory Read and, if required, users can also be stopped from logging into Oak until they have acknowledged reading an important document.
