Headline News and Announcements

Creative Social Intranet Features

News and Announcements can be shared and made visible on the intranet dashboard with their headlines. Both are permission-based and are displayed in different locations on the intranet. News can be created with inbuilt HTML editors, and images, external links, and HTML can be added. Employees can like, comment and subscribe to news articles.

News channel and structure

Creative Social Intranet provides a mechanism for users to easily subscribe to the news they want to see, as well as being presented with default news articles when published.

i) Permissions

System administrators can easily edit the authorization of any particular news article to ensure that only certain departments or users can view the article. There exists a default news channel which can also be described as a master news channel as it allows all users to view the news article.

ii) Notifications

The idea of notifications is used throughout Creative Social Intranet when attention should be drawn to new or modified information within the portal. There are two forms of notifications:

  • Making users aware that a new article has been created and their attention is needed
  • A new article has been created but the user must validate the article before it can be published

The notification will be received by email or pop-up, according to the user’s inclination.

iii) Configuration

The configuration allows you to define how many news items are displayed on your intranet home page. It is also possible to define how big the news images should be.

iv) Blogs, tags, and comments

Where appropriate the interface can present the news channel as an intuitive blog and it includes features such as tagging, commenting, related news, and auto-generation of blogs for each month.

v) News archive

When a news item has expired or the list of published news grows the display limit it will be placed into the news archive. This fully searchable archiving system turns old news into an important source of knowledge for future and existing employees.
