A modern, collaborative social intranet to replace a classic, static intranet brings many changes with it but also presupposes a number of changes to ensure its success. One key aspect is transparency as actively fostered by Atlassian Confluence and Linchpin.
Traditionally, users are forced to use a VPN connection, which they first need to set up on their devices – something that is easy for technically experienced users but may present less-technical users with a challenge. Linchpin Mobile has the solution with its gateway service – this allows protected and secure connections to your intranet without a VPN.
We regularly see companies where a number of people are actively using Confluence. But the heads of corporate communications worry …
Until now, you could only customize how Confluence and Linchpin appeared in the browser; native mobile apps usually do not allow customized interfaces. With a custom Linchpin Mobile app, you can brand your mobile intranet and make it more comfortable for your employees to use it!
You can now enable mobile access to your Confluence intranet and take it to the next level. Linchpin Mobile means modern collaboration across devices.
What are our development teams currently working on? What’s new about our social intranet suite Linchpin and the Confluence extensions (apps) that we have developed? It’s time again to take a look backstage and read our latest work-in-progress update.
In this post, I want to give you some insights into what we have been working on around Confluence and our social intranet suite Linchpin: What new versions and products are starting development?

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.
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.
Linchpin is our Confluence-based social intranet solution. Our teams work continuously and intensively on the components of this suite. New features are added, existing features are expanded, and Linchpin will always meet the enterprise requirements of our customers. Here is our updated flyer – our visual elevator pitch!
