We’ve been hard at work consistently developing and updating Linchpin, our Confluence-based social intranet solution, ever since its original launch. Katja Weingärtner, solution owner for Linchpin joined Jimena Martini in an interview where she talked about what the Linchpin development teams have been working on lately.
Our teams develop the Linchpin Intranet Suite, a collection of Confluence apps that modernize your company’s intranet system. We’ve updated the navigation throughout the system and added a handy configuration dashboard to make it easier to set up Linchpin in your company.
The Linchpin intranet suite, based on Atlassian Confluence, represents a modern and extensively personalized user experience. Our Linchpin development team will soon be releasing two exciting new features that will help you and your team to get new employees on board with the intranet quickly and efficiently so that they can make the most of its features.
As a component of the Confluence-based social intranet suite Linchpin, Linchpin User Profiles adds numerous, useful functions and options to the native Confluence user profiles and is the foundation for the personalization capabilities of Linchpin intranets. Here, we’ll take a look at the most important new features of the latest version of Linchpin User Profiles.
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.
There are quite a few intranet systems that include native instant messenger solutions with integrated chat functions. At first glance, an all-in-one package like this might seem attractive. But looking a bit more closely, it might not be such a good idea.
The app Linchpin Theme allows you adapt the look of your Confluence instance, Confluence-based intranet and extranet systems, or individual areas with individual themes and customization options without the need for re-programming. Here’s an overview of the improvements and new features made in version 2.12 of Linchpin Theme.
The Linchpin User Profiles app expands native Confluence user profiles – contextually, visually and technically. Our development team has just released version 2.9 of Linchpin User Profiles including new export functions, visual improvements, performance enhancements, and other small changes.
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.
When a developer uses Google’s leading technology to create a personalized intranet – wouldn’t that be immediately superior to Atlassian’s relatively sluggish technology? You’d think so, but this was not the case! And our customers agree – Linchpin is still the central integration point for all of these new cloud services.
