Welcome to Blink
This article will walk you through an explanation of the app and its main features for a new user who has signed up to Blink!
The feed opens up two-way communication in the workplace. It's a space for your company to keep you in the loop with what's going on and share important information, and your space to join the conversation. Sharing your ideas and observations from the frontline.
When you post to the Feed, you can photos, videos, documents, and links to websites. It is one of the easiest ways to share information, and ultimately allows for great communication between you and your managers!
Chats in Blink should be a familiar experience for anyone who has used another chat app on their phone. You can have as many chats as you like with other users from your organization and can message freely whenever you would like. There are two options to choose from in how to talk to others, Group chats and Direct chats.
You can have direct chats with just one other person or you can set up group chats with as many other people as you wish.
If you click on the plus button next to the reply area you can explore Blink Super Powers and have fun in your chats.
Whether your team are sat across the office from you or on the other side of the world, Directory makes finding and connecting with colleagues from around the organization easier than ever.
The directory is broken up into three parts, contacts, directory, and teams.
- The Directory tab contains every single person in your organization.
- The Contacts tab will show every colleague that you've had a direct conversation with on Blink. When you mark a contact as a favourite, they will appear at the top of this view.
- The Teams tab shows all teams that you are a member of. Being part of the correct teams is of utmost importance as this is how things are shared with you in Hub and the Feed.
Click on a user in the Directory to see their profile and start chats with them.
Here information that may relate to your day to day life can be posted and stored for access whenever. This is impacted by your team access if you are missing something let someone know!
On the Hub, there may be some quick links posted at the top which take you to an internal Blink document, or an external website. There is a lot of information that can be added to the Hub, you could have forms, documents, shortcuts (to external sites), micro-apps, and any other file! This can then be organised into folders which is where the teams come in as the folders can be assigned to the specific teams. There may also be an option to relay feedback to us, or someone in your team, by using the Micro-app for Submit Feedback. This may not have been enabled in your organisation so if you are missing the Submit Feedback app don't worry. It can also be reached on the settings page! If you have any ideas feel free to send them our way!
