When you think of the traditional tools many of us use to get our work done – email, intranets and shared networks, video conferencing, etc. – my guess is these do not then simultaneously make you think of friendships with colleagues, sharing both the personal and professional gems of your lives. They most likely make you think, “these are the tools I use to get my work done”. There is a way out: The Linchpin Intranet Suite combines traditional work tools and social media tools.
Modern software is not only characterized by the fact that the technology is optimized or that new feature releases appear regularly. Rather, modern software also addresses the compliance requirements of companies, for example by enabling accessibility.

Be honest: How many different messengers or social media channels do you use every day for your communication? Even in companies, it is no longer uncommon to use several communication tools at once – after all, different teams have different requirements for such tools. But the more extensive the tool landscape, the more often there is chaos in communication and the more difficult it becomes to keep track of all company messages. Linchpin has addressed this problem by creating two shortcuts to Microsoft Teams that allow you to share Linchpin news in MS Teams and start chats in MS Teams from within Linchpin. We’ll show you how this works in this blog article.
