Do you want your intranet to be understood and to be used intuitively by all your employees, even by technically inexperienced users ? A clear design, one that feels relevant, with a smooth start up and an intuitive user interface are important aspects. Linchpin achieves this and more by limiting the complexity of Confluence, adding opportunities for personalization across the board, extensive design options and seamless interaction between Linchpin apps – with easy-to-use administration functions and no fuss.
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.
Linchpin User Profiles is a key module of the Confluence-based social intranet suite, Linchpin that enables users to expand their Confluence user profiles. It also includes an internal expert search function, which is the focus of the latest version of Linchpin User Profiles. Here we will look at how this creates a more flexible and successful user experience when searching.
The Easy Events RSVP app has very successfully allowed many of our customers to manage their events directly in Confluence and in the Confluence-based Linchpin social intranet suite. Easy Events has been on the Atlassian Marketplace for five years now! In light of this anniversary, we will be giving the app a complete refresh and a new name: Linchpin Events. We’d like to let you know what we have in store and build a little excitement and anticipation around the upcoming release.
In addition to features such as editorial approvals, scheduled publishing, a wide range of design options and the ability to configure custom news feeds, Linchpin Enterprise News also has a flexible, user-friendly design to ensure creating and consuming news is effective, enjoyable and efficient. Our developers have optimized a variety of features and improved the design for better usability in Linchpin Enterprise News version 2.5.
Collaboration with partners is an important factor in the continuous development and improvement of our products. Here is a video interview with Brandon Huff from one such partner company, cPrime – a leading Atlassian expert. We talk about our software solution for the implementation of SAFe with Atlassian tools – Agile Hive – its potential from the viewpoint of a US partner, regional differences in scaling agile methods, the importance of comprehensive software integration, among other things.
In this post, we look at the prioritization process used by Atlassian to determine when a new feature will be released for which of its two deployment options – Data Center and Server. We consider the criteria used in the decision-making process to make the decisions more transparent and understandable for customers.
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.
