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.
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.
An intranet without event management? Unthinkable. Especially in a Confluence-based intranet. To help you organize (and participate in) events in your Linchpin intranet even better, we’re introducing a new feature in October: Timeslots for events! By the way, this feature was requested by some Linchpin users via Canny. This leads us to the question: Canny build it?! Yes, yes we can.
Be honest: How many different messengers or social media channels do you use every day for your communication? Even in companies, it is no longer uncommon to use several communication tools at once – after all, different teams have different requirements for such tools. But the more extensive the tool landscape, the more often there is chaos in communication and the more difficult it becomes to keep track of all company messages. Linchpin has addressed this problem by creating two shortcuts to Microsoft Teams that allow you to share Linchpin news in MS Teams and start chats in MS Teams from within Linchpin. We’ll show you how this works in this blog article.
Social relationships at work are crucial. We spend most of our waking hours at our place of work. It makes sense then that we should focus on developing social relationships at our de facto primary residence. Given that such relationships are conducive to well-being, a company that facilitates these relationships has an advantage over one that does not. Learn how to improve your workplace.
Linchpin is getting a price update. The price adjustment applies to most Linchpin apps and takes effect July 15, 2022. You’ll find everything you need to know within the blog post.
