We have long foreseen the issue with an amazing SharePoint intranet landing page.
The page takes a long time to create, especially if one has done so for mobile and tablet use.
The information displayed on the page is dynamic and those data sources took forever to be located, data cleansed and filtered for display. The images were hand picked and updated by marketing to give the page depth and a personal feel.
And be it in the office or working from home, the intranet is a place of solace; a location where everyone goes to collaborate effectively, gain valuable information and be more productive.
However, away from a desktop or large screen, this landing page is almost always impossible to access.
Here are some potential issues faced with an Intranet Landing page.
- External Access - Intranets may not be exposed to the outside world, and therefore impossible to access via a mobile phone;
- Authentication – While in the office, authentication may be setup and passthrough – away from the office authentication is probably not. This leads to constant annoying popups;
- Mobility – If a site has not been designed for mobile, it will basically not work for mobile and the entire experience will be impossible; and
- Push vs Pull – An intranet does not update you when something is new. You will need to go to the intranet to see new items
All of these issues are resolved in one magnificent email. We create a scheduled email that is based on all the information critical to your business, Information that you need know on a daily basis and push this to your users.
They get the wonderful experience of seeing everything in one place and being able to react and plan accordingly.
Your SharePoint has never been more mobile, more interactive and more adopted as a platform for collaboration ever.
