We were faced with the problem almost every company has.. That of making sure that information sharing across the organization is maximized in a bid to improve overall efficiency & educate our employees. To help do this, we started quickly put together a Company Intranet using some great extensions like Kunena, Docman, Phoca Gallery & of course Joomla content ( We Plan to upgrade this to Flexi Content later)
One of the Major issues, which you must have already guessed ... Was that the intranet was in place for over 6 Months.. but the activity was limited to a few individuals.. But even then no one else was looking at the posted info.. So effectively.. there was no information sharing .. file sharing.. Nothing.. Nada
After taking some offline sessions, we realized that though we were promoting the intranet heavily, there was no way for the people to know when new content was added..
Who would believe that the Solution had been staring at us, sitting in our own Downloads Area at Techjoomla for months !.. So in came J!MailAlerts..
We set it up with plugins for Kunena, Phoca Gallery, Docman & Joomla content & also threw in a new custom made plugin called most active users which calculated most active users across the extensions we were using.
We are now using this on our Intranet for almost a month now & we love the results.. Read on to see actual usage statistics & see how an alert email looks when there is content available from all the plugins..
