Default subscriptions are useful for new users. New users won't have any personal subscriptions at the start of their Intranet usage. Default subscriptions allow to get started with the Intranet right away.
Also, the macros look better when they are not empty - default subscriptions allow for a better first picture of your Intranet.
Navigate to Confluence administration → Linchpin Enterprise News → Personal news subscriptions → Default subscriptions.
Switch to the Default subscriptions tab.
Click on the +Add space(s) button.
Enter a space within the available text field. Repeat for as many spaces as you wish.
Finally, click on the Save button. You're done!
Obligatory subscriptions can not be removed by a normal user.
Therefore the name - obligatory. A user will always see news from spaces rendered as obligatory.
Obligatory subscriptions are a great way to combine two use cases into one.
Most often, a typical dashboard consists of two news macros - the
Cover Stories macro and the
Personal News Feed macro. The
Cover Stories often contain obligatory corporate news and are identical for every employee. The
Personal News Feed macro on the other hand gives each user the freedom to select news sources they personally find interesting.
Obligatory subscriptions make it possible to combine both personal and corporate, obligatory news into one macro. You could, for example, set the
Cover Stories macro to display the user's individual subscriptions, but with help of obligatory subscriptions, also include corporate news which will be displayed to every user, no matter their personal news configuration.
Navigate to Confluence administration → Linchpin → Enterprise News → Personal news subscriptions → Obligatory subscriptions.
Obligatory space subscriptions tab, you can define which spaces contain news which should be obligatory.
Enter spaces which contain obligatory news into the input field(s).
Personalization allows you to display obligatory and default news users, based on their profile data (for example: their department).
This solution makes it possible that
User A and
User B receive totally different obligatory/default news.
Navigate to either
Confluence administration → Linchpin → Enterprise News → Personal news subscriptions → Default subscriptions → Personalization
Confluence administration → Linchpin → Enterprise News → Personal news subscriptions → Obligatory subscriptions → Personalization,
based on what kind of subscriptions you want to personalize.
Select up to three profile field attributes which should be used for personalization.
Be aware that all selected profile fields will have to match the settings you made.
Click on the Save button.
Now, switch to the Default subscriptions / Obligatory subscriptions tab.
Enter the profile field values which should be used for personalization.
In the GIF below we selected the attributes Branch and Department to personalize our news. In this case, we need to enter both a branch (here: Frankfurt) and a department (here: IT). All users who match these criteria (are working within the IT department in Frankfurt) will receive news from the configured space(s).
Click on the Save button.
