Upload background picture of LUP via Onboarding, PCA, Pings befüllen
It would be a nice addition if you could upload the background picture for your user profile somewhere via ping (ping type 'profile'?) (or maybe via onboarding (upload profile picture?)).
Ping - Translate content of ping type text
For the pings it is in general possible to create translations for text elements as far as title and descriptions are concerned, which is great. However, for the content of ping type 'text' , which is a text, too (and a very important one), there is no possibility to offer a translation, so that you are forced to give a ping text in two (or more?) languages. It would look so much more professional if we could get an option to translate this text, too.
Personalize pings modules
As an administrator, I want to be able to target a specific pings configuration to a user set which is selected by personalization based on their profile data.
Pings-Subscription for space categories or types
As an administrator, I want to be able to offer users a set of spaces for subscription in the Pings module. The list of available spaces should be based on space categories and/or space types, e.g. all collaboration spaces or all spaces from all communications departments.

Question & Answer Content Type
A question & answer content type would be really useful for asynchronous and persistent knowledge sharing. Many intranet and community platforms have this feature, so it makes sense for Linchpin to include something similar in order to compete and provide a comprehensive communications product. The format could be built off of Microblogs; we essentially just need threaded conversations which can have a reply selected as the accepted answer. Similar to what Jive did, the answer could be featured at the top of the post, preventing visitors from having to scroll the entire thread to discover the answer to a question that was posted. Ideally this would also have a Q&A 'Hub' similar to the other hubs in Linchpin, which would contain filters for things like status (Answered and Unanswered ), categories, labels, or "topics" (to follow suit with the Microblogs template), and a data range, for starters. Macros for this could include a Timeline macro just like the one for Microblogs, which could have settings for Space, Topics, etc.
Integrated advent calendar
A common use case for which there's currently no easy solution: an advent calendar for employees. A dedicated app could provide a framework that you only have to fill with some custom content. Or maybe there are other ideas, of what an "Advent calendar app" should look like? Please let us know if you would find it useful and what your wishlist for the functionality would be!
Emojis wherever you create Content
Not every Linchpin will be able to handle Emojis at all - the database it's running on has to meet certain criteria. But if it does - why not embellish your Content with Emojis? React with Emojis in your comments on news, use them in the microblog, basically wherever you want people to interact with each other. Emojis are common in so many apps, people are used to using them. Would you activate that feature in your Linchpin?
Users can create their own intranet start page with widgets
User would like to be able to personalize their intranet start page better. In addition to predefined widgets and information about the organization, a selection of widgets for personalizing the start page would be nice.
2fa authentication for Linchpin Mobile
To make login into Linchpin Mobile more secure, a second factor would be useful when logging in or for inital registration of a new mobile device for an existing user account. For example, through integration via an Authenticator app and a one-time password (OTP).
