The professional administration of internal news is one of the most important must-haves for companies’ intranet solutions. The Enterprise News Bundle for Confluence enables this and makes it possible to show flexible, personalized news concepts for Confluence-based intranets. Version 1.4 delivers extensive improvements.
Many companies only take advantage of collaboration in an internal company wiki. But why shouldn’t these companies profit from the many advantages that centralized co-cooperation has to offer with their external contacts too? Being in constant contact with customers, partners, suppliers, and many others is a must in corporations today.
The beginning of the year is often a time when companies and teams plan their product development for the coming months. Project, product, and development managers gather to assess meetings, distribute resources, and commit to roadmaps. To facilitate this, Atlassian developed Portfolio for JIRA, which is now in version 2.2. The new release gives teams the ability to compare initial and current project timelines, select the best roadmap scenario, and determine their velocity.
The first //SEIBERT/MEDIA client to introduce a Linchpin intranet to their organization was MEYER WERFT GmbH & Co. KG. The German shipbuilding company, which has been in business since 1795, is renowned for its shipyard in Papenburg. For over 200 years, the experts at this family-run business have built numerous ships. To compete internationally, production technology had to be on the cutting edge. Today, MEYER WERFT has the most modern shipbuilding facilities in the world.
There are times when even agile teams can’t get around a certain level of planning. But, it can be quite challenging to balance daily tasks within a sprint along with the added pressure of a plan.
Since development teams organize their day-to-day operations in JIRA, Atlassian developed Portfolio for JIRA, which takes planning to a new level. The new plugin helps align product roadmaps with sprint planning, keep track of dependencies, manage team skills, and pose what-if questions.
For years, mobile internet use has been on the rise. In 2015, over half of all Google searches worldwide originated from mobile devices. Yet another milestone was reached in 2016, as smartphones surpassed other devices in terms of where internet is accessed.
The new Linchpin intranet app fits right into this type of smartphone usage. Though a mobile intranet isn’t a chat application, it should also have social and communication features to provide mobile users with an interactive experience for mobile users.
Confluence and JIRA interact with one another very closely. In one of our live webinars, my colleague, Jan Kuntscher, and I demonstrate JIRA integration in Confluence. Not only do we show standard features such as individual operations, configurable process lists, and JIRA task list creation within Confluence, we also provide some helpful tips for features that may be unfamiliar to you.
//SEIBERT/MEDIA’s Custom User Profile add-on allows users to expand their user profiles in Confluence with new fields and to personalize these fields for different user groups. Our development team has delivered Custom User Profile version 1.17, with practical new features, bug fixes, and improvements.
We are preparing to be at the first European Atlassian Summit this year in Barcelona, and we’ll be there in full-force! It’s looking like it will be the biggest event this year as it’s an Atlassian Summit and Atlas Camp rolled into one event. From May 1 to May 5 you can join us and many others at the Placa de la Universitat and the Fira Barcelona Gran Via to learn all about the software in the Atlassian ecosystem, network with like-minded people, and have a lot of fun.
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.
