Linchpin Hack

Check out our Linchpin Hack for menu personalization below. Please note the following Linchpin Hack is currently only available in German 🇩🇪. The menu personalization functionality is available only if you installed the Linchpin Intranet Suite.

What is this feature?

You can configure any menu items to appear only in those spaces that have one or more configured space categories.

These menu items are displayed only in the corresponding spaces.


What criteria apply to the visibility of the menu?



Is the Menu visible?

If personalization + space apply


If personalization applies, but the space does not apply

3If personalization + space do not apply(error)
4If personalization does not apply, but the space does(tick)

How does an example look like?

To get this result, you should apply the criteria of the tabel from above accordingly. Also mind the profile information and the space tools!

In this example, the menu structure looks like this:

Please note:

If you don't add any text into the space category, it will be automatically filled with the correct one!

If you don't add any text into the personalization fields (i.e. Branch, Country, Department in this example), then it's visible to all!

Don't forget to add the space category in your space tools!

To do so, click on your space then on Space tools, select Overview and add the label in the "Categories" within the Space details tab!
