You can create notices which will be displayed to users when they login to your instance.

Prior to Linchpin Intranet Suite 3.4, Linchpin Pings was called Linchpin Assistant.

What are notices

Notices are great reminders. A notice can be displayed once or regularly (for example on a daily basis). When a user visits the dashboard and a new notice is available, it will be displayed as a pop-up window.

Notices can remind users to subscribe to news or fill out their profiles!
