Onboarding in stages and with content
As a new user, I want to be onboarded not only for profile and news, but I also want to get information and insights that are specifically targeted at me and are an integral part of my experience. I also want to be taken through stages, like on my first day the basics, in my second week or on my second day organisational charts and so on.
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).
Personalized "Today Section" for the homepage
Possibly this is already realizable by native macros partially: I would like to have a section on the homepage, where a user will have a personalized welcome (Hi Jan!) today's weather at the location today's menu at the local cantina today's events ... Anybody also thought about something like this?
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.
Tool for Converting Pages <-> Blogs
A tool for converting a Page to a Blog, and vice versa, would be incredibly useful for users who accidentally create content as the wrong type, and don't want to lose traction or engagement such as comments, likes, views, incoming links, etc. This option would ideally appear in the ellipses (...) menu when viewing the published content. It would create a complete conversion, not a duplicate of the content which requires the original to be deleted. It would also maintain the engagement such as Likes and Comments. Since the Create button defaults a Page in Confluence, that is what our users are most often creating. However, with the introduction of Linchpin News, we're experiencing growing pains in supporting users trying to shift habits in order to have their important updates appear in the News Streams. Currently there's no great tool that does this on the Atlassian Marketplace so I think Seibert has a good opportunity to create something that loops in nicely with news and potentially BPC. The one app that was specifically focused on this is not compatible with Data Center and was also quite buggy.
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?)).
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?
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.
Local Image Library for news and events
Enhanced Watching / Notification options
As long as Atlassian won't provide a better experience here, it would be nice to have some options and settings in advance to what is there today. Just some thoughts: user setting to select if you want to be notified by mail & notification center or just NC daily summary eMail for favourite spaces (nobody needs the full summary) unwatch all in the personal list: after a while it would take ages to clear the list 1 by 1 improve watching for attachments
