The Linchpin intranet suite, based on Atlassian Confluence, represents a modern and extensively personalized user experience. However, this kind of personalization requires users to fill out their intranet profiles with all relevant information (e.g. location, language, team memberships, etc.). Our Linchpin development team will soon be releasing two exciting new features that will help you and your team to get new employees on board with the intranet quickly and efficiently.
The Linchpin Onboarding feature will help your intranet team to take users that are new to the social intranet by the hand and introduce them to the system, and ultimately the company, in a simple, seamless way. The most important objective here is to get new users to add all of the essential information at the beginning by filling out their entire user profile right away. After all, a complete profile is a key prerequisite for the personalization of news, apps and many other kinds of content and functions in the Linchpin suite. Furthermore, this information makes it easier for all employees to find their colleagues on the intranet and get in contact with them.
You can use the onboarding feature to provide a wizard requiring the user to fill out their profile with the necessary information and add a profile picture. This means that new employees no longer have to actively seek out their profile to add the information required. Instead, they are led through the process of setting up their profile step by step, the first time they log in. You can customize the names of the modules you require and any accompanying text fields that are shown during this onboarding and adapt these to suit your corporate language.
We are already planning to add further features to assist employees during their onboarding process. For example, suggestions for new channel subscriptions are in the pipeline, and our development team will work on implementing these and further ideas and use cases in the coming weeks and months.
The second feature that is coming soon is Linchpin Assistant. You can use this assistant to configure reminders that regularly remind users to fill out certain fields in their profile if they haven't done so already. Here you can create your own text for the notifications as well as customize and select the fields to be filled out. Moreover, you are also able to schedule the reminders, determining how often the notifications should be sent out.
