The //SEIBERT/MEDIA Custom User Profile add-on allows users to expand their user profiles in Confluence both to provide new fields and structure the information. Our development team has released Custom User Profile version 2.0, with a completely revised profile view.
After the free version of the Linchpin Theme Plugin came out on the Atlassian Marketplace a few weeks ago, our development team also released an enterprise edition. The Linchpin Theme Plugin allows you to customize Confluence without having to do any programming. You can tailor it specifically to your organization’s design, create a header and logo, custom footer and navigation menu, personalized buttons and other elements. What used to be a project in and of itself can now be done with considerably less effort. You can even switch between different themes as needed.
All of the standard plugin features are also included in the Enterprise add-on—and then then some.

IntraNET.Reloaded Berlin 2017 is over. Our empulse colleagues had a few exciting days at the event with diverse discussions, talks and presentations. Almost 400 attendees discussed the “webification of enterprise communication” and examined the topic in detail. We were able to present Linchpin and Linchpin Touch, developed by our partner //SEIBERT/MEDIA from Wiesbaden, with great success.
There’s a trend that’s moving away from being always on and always available. Some companies even go so far as to prohibit checking email on smartphones outside of working hours and on weekends.
Nowadays, there are more enterprise software providers coming out with mobile apps. Would this constant email accessibility bring on additional stress? And employees aren’t just getting email. They also have to deal with work-related questions that could come up at any time via push notifications.
I’d like to share a few of my own thoughts and experiences.
Unlike email, an intranet contains information that is valid for a longer time, as well as preserving context and providing options for both synchronous and asynchronous communication. These days, there are better tools than email for communication.
Right after the Atlassian Summit Europe has finished in Barcelona, we have a leading Atlassian employee as our guest in Wiesbaden: John Wetenhall. We have a lot planned – join us for a webinar on 9 May, arrange a private discussion on the 8 or 9 May, or drop in to the Rhein-Main Atlassian user group on the 9 May.
Last year, Facebook started offering a solution for organizations called, Facebook for Work. It then officially started development in October 2016, changing its name to Workplace by Facebook.
