You will find this page useful if you are using Linchpin as your intranet solution with one or more of the following Confluence apps:
- App Center
- Enterprise News Bundle
- Linchpin Theme Plugin
- Navigation Menu Editor
- Linchpin Touch
- Custom User Profile
Early October, the new Linchpin Manager app will appear on the Marketplace.
The Manager is your new control center, bringing together all of the important information about your Linchpin Intranet (the status of your Linchpin apps, licenses, links, etc.)
One major change that will affect you, is the secondary function of the Manager. It ensures that the other Linchpin apps can exchange data with each other, and collects all of the important Linchpin functions that were previously distributed in the individual apps, e.g. personalization settings, or custom Linchpin app styles via the Linchpin Theme.
Personalized app recommendations, mandatory apps for users (App Center)
- Personalized Cover Stories, News Feeds for users (ENB)
Personalized navigation elements for users (NME)
The Linchpin Manager was terminated in version 1.6 (Linchpin Intranet Suite 3.3). We integrated its functions and child apps (Translations, Pings und Onboarding) directly into the Linchpin Intranet Suite.
The Linchpin Manager app is only visible in the administration area of Confluence. At that time, new versions of the apps mentioned above will be available in the Marketplace. When you update one of the apps, personalization features within the app will be initially disabled.
