What are the different types of Categories?

  Categories in Blink are customizable so that they better match the content being posted by your organization. Having custom categories also makes it easier for users to find the information they need, as they filter their Feed. Please contact the team at hello@joinblink.com  to create your own categories.


A standard text update where you can say anything you like. Attaching an image embeds it inline, attaching any other file type makes it available for preview or download.


A poll with up to four options that you can use anyway you like. Once posted, both you and your audience will get one chance to vote and you'll all see the live results coming in!

  1. Create your Poll
  2. Send
  3. Mark Poll as finished and view your results


A special post that will be pinned to the top of everyone's feed and requires acknowledgment to dismiss. Use this for business continuity messaging or for peace of mind and audit purposes.

Recipients have to acknowledge these messages, whilst the sender can see who has acknowledged and who is still to acknowledge them.

  1. Create a post
  2. View Acknowledgments to see who has/hasn't seen your post.

This is an example of the types of posts you could find on your feed.


A post type for the more important internal communications that require greater exposure within your organization.

Featuring a feed post will not only add to its prominence within the feed but will also ensure the post reappears in users feeds during the given time period. By reappearing multiple times, Blink ensures your post is seen by the rest of your organization.

  1. Create a post
  2. Use post settings to feature your post
  3. Click Post
  4. Your featured post is sent


Want to post something in the future? Use Scheduled posts to create feed cards and we will send them for you so there is no need to remember to click send.

  1. Create a post
  2. Use the post settings to schedule a post for a set time in the future. You can also decide a time and date for the post to expire.
  3. Once you have scheduled a post you can view all upcoming posts from the Feed.
