Navigation menus are an important requirement for customers who use corporate intranets. However, the standard version of Confluence doesn’t offer many options that give you control over your navigation menus. This is where the Linchpin Navigation Menus app (previously called the Navigation Menu Editor) comes into play. It adds this much-needed functionality to Confluence, and along with the other central components of the Linchpin intranet suite, it extends Confluence to be a complete corporate intranet.
//SEIBERT/MEDIA has offices at several locations in Wiesbaden, the largest of them residing on the fifth floor of the Luisen Forum, a shopping center in the middle of the city. Around the building there is a wonderful roof terrace where you can relax, grill and look over Wiesbaden. We thought that the location would also be a good place to provide the surrounding pedestrian area with free Wi-Fi. Here at //SEIBERT/MEDIA we believe that people with access to more information will make better decisions and that such access ought to be free. Keeping this in mind, we have teamed up with Freifunk (“Free Radio”) Wiesbaden and installed a free Wi-Fi hotspot on our terrace for use in the surrounding pedestrian area.
After our offices in the Luisen Forum building and neighboring ESWE Tower in Wiesbaden had become a little crowded, we went on the search for new office space and found it in Adolfstrasse 16! Here we look at the unique design concept in the new office and what is next for our existing offices.
After installing an urban garden at the //SEIBERT/MEDIA office in June post, it’s now time to present the produce from the raised garden beds that now adorn the roof terrace. There were also many lessons to be learned from the first summer of urban gardening at //SEIBERT/MEDIA.
I have been using Google G Suite as an office environment for communication and collaboration for about six years. In the following post, I’ll describe a situation that should sound familiar; in this case a meeting with a mixed group of participants. Distributed meetings are one of Google G Suite’s strong suits. The software is not only good at planning and organizing meetings, but it’s also an effective tool for holding the actual meetings as well, even if you meet in person.
Now that the era of Hipchat and Stride is at an end, we can reflect upon our transition from these Atlassian solutions to Google Hangouts Chat for group chat and messaging in organizations.
South America, southern Africa and southern Germany: three souths! Karolin made the most of the extra 20 vacation days and bonus airfares we gave her to celebrate her 10 year milestone.
In this second of a two part blog post covering Google G Suite, we’ll take a closer look at Hangouts Meet, Jamboard, Groups for Business, administrative functions, Google Forms and Google Sites.
In April, Google revealed a new version of Gmail for the first time in several years. In addition to a better looking design as well as better functionality, it includes several new features, most of which come from Google’s inbox. Clearly something exciting is happening at Google.
A modern, collaborative social intranet to replace a classic, static intranet brings many changes with it but also presupposes a number of changes to ensure its success. One key aspect is transparency as actively fostered by Atlassian Confluence and Linchpin.
