Ichicraft Boards: Your Digital Workplace
by ichicraft b.v.
A personal digital workplace for Viva Connections, SharePoint and Teams.
Ichicraft Boards allows users to personalize their digital workplace in SharePoint or Microsoft Teams. It offers the user a canvas that can be filled with configurable widgets (blocks) that clearly display up-to-date and personalized information. This increases the productivity and involvement of employees in the organization.
- Personalization: Whether you’re using Microsoft Teams or SharePoint Online, Ichicraft Boards helps your users get access to just the right information themselves.
- Improved engagement: By showing information that’s relevant and up-to-date, users will return frequently to catch up, improving the overall engagement with your organization.
- Guided onboarding: First-time users are guided through the most important features of the product. Configure widget bundles to offer users an easy way to get started with a pre-configured set of widgets.
- Clear overview: By showing small blocks of condensed information, we make sure users get a clear overview of what’s important to them.
- Seamless integration: Ichicraft Widgets integrates seamlessly with both SharePoint Online and Microsoft Teams. Put the Board on your existing homepage, add it as a personal app to Teams, or do both.
- Effortless installation: Installing Ichicraft Boards is easy, just follow the steps in our installation wizard and get up and running in no time.
- Make it fit: No two companies are the same. That’s why Ichicraft Boards is configurable to make it exactly fit your needs.
- Extend: Take Ichicraft Boards one step further by adding custom widgets you built yourself, allowing users to interact with your line-of-business software!
- Quick Launch: The Quick Launch button offers users a simple handle to open the widget board from anywhere within the intranet without leaving the page they’re viewing.
