Winter is already knocking on the door, but before that, autumn is saying goodbye with the major update of the Linchpin Intranet Suite (now available in the Atlassian Marketplace)! We have once again equipped our social intranet with a whole range of new, in some cases eagerly awaited features, including the ability to automatically create recurring events. Here you can find out what other features Linchpin Intranet Suite 5.8 and Linchpin Essentials 2.8 have to offer.
Today, we’re looking into the Linchpin crystal ball to see which new features will be added in a few weeks, when Linchpin Intranet Suite 5.7 and Essentials 2.7 are released.
If you don’t know what an intranet is, well, now is the time to find out! In short, it can be many things, but mainly, it’s a computer network internal to a company or organization. With Linchpin, you can extend it to do many other things. Which ones, you ask? Well, read this complete guide to find out!
Do you like standing in queues? No? Neither do we. For some types of corporate events – e.g. photos for the employee directory or pizza day in the canteen – it makes sense to divide the event into several time slots to avoid annoying waiting times. This is now very easy in Linchpin – thanks to the event time slots! Decide for yourself how many time slots you want to divide your event into, how many minutes a time slot consists of and how many of your colleagues are allowed to register per slot.
It’s been almost exactly half a year since the last update of the Linchpin Intranet Suite – version 5.4 – and we’ve followed suit: Linchpin Intranet Suite 5.6 is waiting in the wings (along with Linchpin Essentials 2.6)! In this blog article, we’ll give you an overview of the highlights: The free footer configuration, enhancements in terms of event planning, fixed sizes for teaser macros, and implementation of gender-neutral practices.
Our intranet received a brand new update – with version 5.4, Linchpin Intranet Suite introduces better support for screen readers, time slots for events, a customizable mobile menu and more. Downloadable now from the Atlassian Marketplace.
When you think of the traditional tools many of us use to get our work done – email, intranets and shared networks, video conferencing, etc. – my guess is these do not then simultaneously make you think of friendships with colleagues, sharing both the personal and professional gems of your lives. They most likely make you think, “these are the tools I use to get my work done”. There is a way out: The Linchpin Intranet Suite combines traditional work tools and social media tools.
Confluence is a great tool for knowledge sharing within your company, but as with everything that exists in the world, it’s not perfect. Some of the Space admin features are a bit clunky or missing, and it doesn’t exactly create pages that are very pleasing to the eye, which can mean that your prospective readers take one look at it and high-tail it right out of there. With Space Tools Pro and Karma, these problems are a thing of the past.
It’s October and the leaves are starting to fall. Things are changing, and the Linchpin Intranet Suite is no different: it now offers three functions that make the social intranet even more user-friendly and clear. These include new filter options in the people directory, scaled-down images for shorter loading times and a clearer timeline, and a further step towards greater accessibility. Find out what else you can look forward to in the blog article.
It’s almost the end of the year, and that means it’s time for New Year’s resolutions! If yours is to find a new tool to organize your team’s goals and objectives better, and you’re using Confluence Cloud, then look no further, Properties is the app you’re looking for!
