"A story worth mentioning" release

Released on 2021-03-25 (Web client 2.10, app 2.10 - iOS & Android)



Picture this: You just published a news article about the current state of a major project and you urgently need feedback from different colleagues. How do you reach them all?

Please, make your own life easier and just mention all project-relevant coworkers in the news article, a post or a comment. Simply enter their names (@name*) and hit enter. Et voilà! Now they all received a notification about being mentioned, can access your article with only one click and they know for sure that their attention is needed.


Feel inspired by this story? Then make your own! This release features a brand new function: stories. You might know this fun little post format from social media platforms. Grab your phone, snap a quick picture, add a funny caption (or don't, your choice) and share it with everyone in your workspace!

Inbox & Pings

Someone published a story, a post or a news article? Don't worry, Linchpin will let you know. Your colleagues are discussing your story in a post and share pictures of their dogs? That's right, you're absolutely following that post to be notified about every update.

Other updates:

  • We improved the layout of comments and reactions.
  • The "thumbs down" reaction was replaced with a "sad" reaction.
  • The bug which allowed deleted posts to be viewed via access through notifications is no longer with us.
  • We fixed some minor bugs related to the comment editor.

"Reactions... everywhere!" release

Released on 2021-03-04 (Web client, app 2.9 - iOS & Android)

Introducing: Reactions for Mobile.

Now that the feature has been available for the web version for some time, we are finally releasing Reactions for the mobile app as well.
We've also improved the view for Reactions on the web. #infinitescroll

However, we have even more to offer in this release: Create a new post, write an article or organize an event quickly with the
global "Create" buttonThis feature is available for web and the mobile app!

We have also improved the reloading of comments on all devices.

Improvement release

Released on 2021-02-11 (Web client, app 2.8 - iOS & Android)

We have worked on many improvements so working with Linchpin Cloud is more fun and easier than before.

"Many pennies make a dollar" release

Released on 2021-01-21 (Web client, app 2.7 - iOS & Android)

Sometimes, or even often, it's the little things that make our product better. We've been working on a lot of these little things for this release, so that Linchpin Cloud already feels more and more balanced and easier to use - on your mobile app as well as on the desktop-application.

Infinite Scroll

Just to mention one thing: Infinite scroll for the news overview, the posts hub and the user directory simplify the use of the app and desktop version.

What else?

We have improved and changed many small minor UI and usability issues. 

"Happy New Year" release 

Released on 2021-01-07 (Web client 2.6, app 2.6 - iOS & Android)

Over the New Year we have been busy with many seemingly small improvements that help to make Linchpin easier and more consistent to use.


Reading time: Based on the estimated reading time, which will be displayed for news from now on, the time needed to consume information can be estimated better.


  • We've changed the mobile rendering of posts to align with the other hubs. No more gray background and full surface main posts. It's now even easier to follow conversations with comments and replies.
  • Find "Posts" within the Confluence Cloud navigation bar (if app is installed)
  • Posts on mobile have the same UI as on web


  • We've redesigned the Welcome-UI, so it's easier to see if there are any new workspaces you can join
  • Less whitespace when using a large screen
  • We also fixed some minor display issues and inconsistencies both in the app and on desktop.

"Hey, what's up" release

Released on 2020-11-03 (Web client 2.4, app 2.4.2 - iOS & Android)

Sometimes you just want to share a successful project with your colleagues or make them aware that there is cake in the kitchen.

Both things are actually too small to write a news article about, but in a chat message they would get lost.

Or think about how you could make your colleagues aware that you want to sell your bike.

Our answer to this: Posts.


Interacting means participating

With "Posts" for Linchpin Cloud you can now be a part of your intranet even more easily. Start conversations with colleagues, share information about your current project and respond to news from your colleagues.

Domain based access

Inviting colleagues to Linchpin Cloud works much easier than before.
Simply add your company's email domain and your colleagues can work with you in Linchpin Cloud without having to invite them individually.


Mobile app opens automatically

By clicking on a link that leads to Linchpin Cloud, your smartphone will now automatically open the app (if you already have it installed).

More responsiveness

We have improved the responsiveness of Linchpin Cloud for smaller screens.

"Hi, my name is" release 

Released on 2020-08-27 (Web client 2.3, app 2.3 - iOS & Android)

What is an intranet without my colleagues?! And simply the name together with a small profile picture is usually not enough to get to know my colleagues any better.

So who is the new employee from the marketing department? Is there someone who can give me some advice on how to use the new software? What is the best way to contact the colleague who is working at a different location?

We intend to make these and many more functions available based on user profiles. And we have taken the very first step in this direction with this release:


  • Click on a user to open his profile

  • Change your own display name to choose how you want to be mentioned within the Intranet

  • Find colleagues using the search function

Additionally, administrators now have the option to hide the feature preview. This allows you to easily test Linchpin Cloud with your colleagues without being distracted by any views that do not yet contain real data.


  • The browser tab now displays the matching page title
