✅ Pre-Launch Checklist

A basic guide for admins getting Blink ready for their organization

Updated over a week ago

This list contains everything you need to do before launching Blink to your organization!

🎨 Create your Teams & add content to the Hub & Feed

Blink is built on the foundation of Teams, which define what each user sees in the Feed and what they have access to in the Hub.

  • Create your Teams based on your organizational structure - keep it high level for now, you can always add more teams in the future

  • Organise your Hub by adding Sections and Folders

  • Begin adding Files, Pages, Shortcuts, and Quick Links to your Hub

  • Decide what post categories you'd like to have and start adding posts to the Feed

💡 Helpful Hint

Create your Team Structure first! This ensures all the content is shared with the right audience from day one and you can automate team memberships!

⬆️ Import your Users

Once your Teams are created, you're ready to import your users individually, via bulk import (CSV or Excel file), or SCIM (e.g. Active Directory).

  • Click on the Users tab in the Blink admin Portal and head to Import Users, then follow the import guide.

  • Choose an authentication method (OTP, SAML, o365, GSuite, or Password)

  • Choose an onboarding process: Email and/or SMS invites, or QR Code

  • Assign admin privileges (Org Administrator, Team Administrator, Content Moderator, Basic User)

💡 Helpful Hint

Add the Teams to the user import template to automate team memberships on import!

📲 Pre-Launch Communications Campaign

Build hype with a great communications campaign to Generate excitement, anticipation, and improve adoption.

  • Select and train your Blink Champions

  • Distribute digital and analogue launch awareness campaigns

  • Define your launch data and launch event

  • Organise SWAG (banners, pens, lanyards, stickers, etc.)

💡 Helpful Hint

Be open and honest with your workforce. Tell them the pain points Blink will solve for them and how it’s going to improve their work lives!
