App Center for Confluence: Controlling the visibility of apps for different user groups

App Center for Confluence

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.

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.

How to Optimize and own your own Profile on the Web and in Intranets

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.
