Being able to broadcast company news to employees is still one of the highest priority requirements that organizations place on an intranet. See how the most recent version of the Enterprise News Bundle app delivers more flexibility and personalization than ever before.
Not all employees from different departments, or external users in a Confluence-based extranet should land on the main dashboard. Wouldn’t a user want to see the most important information needed for their daily work by default when they log into Confluence?
Custom User Profile is a Confluence extension (app) which supplements the user profiles in Confluence with extensive useful information and options. Let’s take a closer look at two features: customized user lists with more flexibility, and dynamic links in user profiles.
App Center is a Confluence app and also a part of the social intranet suite developed by us – Linchpin – which allows users to access the applications, tools and resources they frequently need for their daily work from within Confluence – for example, time tracking, other Atlassian tools, online applications, websites and so on. Now, administrators can configure the visibility of all apps in the selection dialog.
B. Braun Melsungen AG with //SEIBERT/MEDIA developed and successfully launched an intranet based on Confluence for more than 50,000 employees: the B. Braun Knowledge Center BKC. This project was concluded with the implementation of our social intranet solution Linchpin.
What if it were possible to automatically populate Confluence user groups using profile information, particularly information provided by Custom User Profiles?
With our DUG – Dynamic User Groups add-on, we have implemented exactly this function. For example, when you create a group for a particular location, employees who have this location in their profile will be automatically added to the group.

Intranets are there to keep employees informed about current issues in a timely manner. But news is not just news. There are many different ways to tackle a news concept, depending on the size of the company, company culture, and capacity within the communications department.
It’s been a simple JIRA issue at first with the summary: “Optimize your own public profile”. Every email I write contains a simple footer with my phone number and a link to my English profile page. I realize, that the importance of the linked page is rising. That’s how the JIRA issue about optimizing this page was created: I wanted to put some effort in my profile optimization. That’s why I am creating this blog post as a public documentation and a point for you to comment on and help me get more ideas.
