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.
It’s showtime – clear the stage for Linchpin Intranet Suite 5.7! Our Linchpin team has been working, testing and fine-tuning for weeks and is now presenting the new update. Several of our users’ wishes have been implemented: From now on, you can set up automatic reminders for your events or put yourself on the waiting list. Also included: New picture galleries for news and events on Confluence pages, new people search functions, various newsletters, and much more… In our article, we give you an overview of the update package for the Linchpin intranet.
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.
Modern software is not only characterized by the fact that the technology is optimized or that new feature releases appear regularly. Rather, modern software also addresses the compliance requirements of companies, for example by enabling accessibility. In this regard, Confluence Data Center from Atlassian and our own social intranet, Linchpin Intranet Suite, are setting a good example and began removing accessibility barriers some time ago. We look together at the roadmaps of the two teams to find out which features will make the tools even more accessible in the future.
