Bring Linchpin News to Microsoft Teams
Wouldn't it be great to feed Linchpin News into "Microsoft Teams" channels?
New Layout Design for Blogpost
Currently, blog posts (news) do not automatically show the news teaser (image, video, quote) in the detailed blogpost view. This is a design in which the news teaser is automatically included. The blog post has a maximum width of 800px. Columns are still available within the 800px width. We are currently considering this as a new presentation form for blog posts. Please let us know your thoughts on this design. We are looking forward to your feedback.
Define user(group)s that are allowed to view and edit planned news in workflow spaces
As of the latest Release of Linchpin Enterprise News, there has been a change in the permissions for news in workflow spaces (and for good reasons, we won't roll that back ;) ). Now any planned news is only visible for the author and - in case there is an approval workflow - the editors. But not for other authors in said space. In many cases that's okay. But sometimes there's a group of authors who need to work together and see each other's news while those are not published yet. For those cases, there could be a configuration option per space. Similar to defining the editors for approval workflows, you would be able to define a group of authors who can view and edit each other's news within the workflow space.
As a user, I want to be notified when news are added to my subscribed spaces
Right now, a user will not get notified when a new blog post has been published in a subscribed space. This is only possible if the user watches the space blog using Confluence core functionality. Getting both (subscribed news in cover stories/news stream AND notifications) is therefore quite cumbersome. Many users are quite frustrated. So I suggest that a user can not only subscribe to spaces, but also decide on a space-by-space basis wether he wants to be notified if new posts are published.
Allow Microsoft Stream for video teaser
As a news creator, I want to be able to use a Microsoft Stream link to embed a video from that platform into a news teaser.
Embed external information into a Magazine
We would like to embed information from external websites (e.g. RSS Feeds or Other External News) into our magazines - so we don't have to reproduce all the content in Confluence.
Display image from URL
Instead of only be able to upload images, I want to be able to add an image URL (E.g. User profile picture or existing image on site)
do not include" option for cover stories.
Allow to have a "do not include" option for cover stories spaces and labels. This would allow to have one section with corporate news and one section with ALL OTHER news
Unsplash integration for news
As an editor, I would like have an unsplash.com integration for news teasers, just like it is already available for events.
