When there are many news from many different sources in your intranet, some users might feel overwhelmed. That's where personalization can help. Our LINCHPIN plugins Enterprise News Bundle and Custom User Profiles work hand in hand to deliver those news to your users they are really interested in: Depending on certain profile fields, they can be presented news from different spaces. This gives you the ability to tailor the content to every single user's needs.
Step 1: Choose profile fields for personalization
In order to do this you first have to choose, which profile fields are relevant. You can select up to three profile fields which will be used to define those personalizations in the following steps.
Step 2: Create news sections and channels
Now you'll create a new news section. You can name it any way you want. Ideally you'll choose a descriptive name that hints on the purpose of the respective news section. In this example the news section's name is "Global", as we plan to deliver different news to users according to their "Location" profile field.
Within a news section you can define as many news channels as you need. The example to the left uses two channels: News from space "EN" will be delivered to users with "en*" in their location profile field, news from space "DN" to users with "de*".
You can use wildcards and logical operators for more complex filtering arguments. Please refer to the page Useful admin information for more information.
