Noodle Features In Depth

Employee Profiles

Employee profile pages offer a glimpse into what individuals within a company have been working on and what they have on the horizon in the coming days and weeks. Employees can review their colleagues’ profiles to see the history of the content they’ve created, along with more personal information, which is accessible through status updates and personal photos.

Customize your profile page to reflect your personal aesthetic and professional reputation. You can select your own profile picture, add links to your social media accounts, and include a brief biography. Profile pages serve as a great place to keep to-do lists and post family photos, as well. Your page should give colleagues a good idea about who you are both inside and outside of the office. Noodle also gives you the option to download a shortcut that stores your password for faster access.

Activity Feeds

Activity feeds promote engagement from within Noodle. Users are able to see personalized views of their feeds—singling out the work of specific colleagues or reviewing certain types of content first—with the ability to filter content and have the newest updates routed directly to their email inboxes.

Keep your activity feed updated by sharing real-time information with status updates. Your colleagues will see your status update and then scroll down to “like” or comment on the items in their feeds. Examples of typical items in a feed might include meeting updates and links to documents that have been newly created or edited. New content will display under the “What’s New” icon.

Instant Messenger

Noodle has developed a smarter, faster way for employees to communicate. The social intranet’s built-in instant messenger application provides a way for employees to chat and collaborate on all types of projects. It notifies users when they have new messages through a blinking light on the web browser.

In addition to chatting with colleagues through Noodle’s instant messenger, you can also share photos and videos. Built-in video conferencing makes it possible to launch video conferences with multiple colleagues. You can shortlist the contacts you communicate with most frequently, as well. The app keeps an archive of all chat logs for future reference.

Document Sharing

The ability to securely share documents is a key component to any intranet. Noodle has focused on providing its users with a seamless way to share and collaborate on documents. Not only do users have the ability to create an unlimited number of folders for any type of file or document, but they can also utilize advanced tools that require colleagues to “check-in” or “check-out” documents online.

You can set up a workflow to manage your documents. The workflow you create will automatically move, archive, or delete certain documents based on the timeline you selected. Documents can be shared individually or in bulk, with the ability to track which users have viewed each document and which, if any, have made modifications or edits.

Easy to Use with Intuitive Features

2016-04-27

Our organization has now evaluated many document management, corporate social networking, internal portal and content management systems.

Pros

Robust and Easy to Use Features Easily Deployed and Managed Modest System Requirements Ability to Install on Multiple Platforms w/ multiple database software options Does not require a high amount of user training Intuitive User Interface Easily Customized Look and Feel Easy to apply our company branding

Cons

There is no out of the box MS Office Integration. However, after speaking with sales and their technical teams we were able to determine a solution that would be included in a future release for integration with MS Office 2013.

One of the Most Economical Intranet Options Available with Great Support

2016-02-18

One of the greatest strengths of Noodle is the permission levels available per user/group.

Pros

- Customer Support: The team at Noodle is quick to help out with support requests and issues - Permissions: The ability to have multiple permission levels per user or per group

Cons

- Lacks mobile responsiveness and isn't meant for mobile use quite yet - Scroll windows can sometimes cause confusion when adding members to groups or permissions

Noodle helped to bring back life to an old outdated intranet site.

2018-01-18

Pros

The interface allows you to easily build pages and has a drag and drop feature that most people are familiar with.

Cons

It would be nice if Noodle would allow you to connect to an external database or use an API widget in order to use existing custom built applications/import data. There are some features that are incorporated in the site (while useful) that are not intuitive to the end users that cannot be disabled.

Positive experience!

2018-08-29

It's also an extra level of security & visibility on documents such as policies and procedures that need to be kept off of our public site but still easy to access.

Pros

It went up so fast and is incredibly easy to populate with content.

Cons

Sometimes certain things have a mind of their own... the home screen skews percentages of columns depending on what section I put in it... but I can't seem to figure out why... I also don't like that if I lock down editing for an area, users can't 'like' anything there... makes the like button sort of useless.

A Great Cost Effective Solution with lots of Customization

2019-06-04

Such better bang for the buck than other options (which is not really an intranet anyhow) I spent alot of time researching various intranet options - and Noodle was the winner, and i'm happy with that choice. For instance it costs a bit more than something like Basecamp, but the functionality far surpasses it.

Pros

-Great customization - I really liked that I can control the look of everything, and what my users see -Granular administrative control - I really needed to have precise control of what different users could see - Noodle really works well this way -Competitive price points for businesses on a lighter budget for an intranet -Embeddable code capabilities in certain posts - helps to display unique content and certain web apps, this was another thing that was important to me

Cons

-Takes a bit of a learning curve to learn - certain UX elements could use bits of refinement

Up and Running in No Time

2017-04-19

Maintenance is easy as long as you have a good map in place for your content. We have delegated responsibility for content to section contributors thereby avoiding the need for extra resource to maintain the intranet.

Pros

Easy to use, low cost, high ROI, outstanding support, flexible, robust, secure and safe.

Cons

Less flexible in design to some of the high end product.

Simple, Easy, Generic

2018-01-10

For smaller structure, this is good but I am not sure how it would work out on a big playing field.

Pros

If you are not a tech guru, it is okay because the simplicity is nice and capable for those who struggle. Tech support was great as well.

Cons

I would love for this to have Office available right from the get-go. The mobile version can be hit or miss.

This platform has given our Team a place to collaborate (formally and informally), share information, disseminate news/updates within the team, and share documents/files. The great thing is, it is future proof for us and can grow with us and adapt to our evolving needs.

Pros

Customer and tech support. The features of the platform.

Cons

Can be a bit tricky getting some of the functionality working properly, but that is due to user skill level. Any issues, we contact the support team and they help us get it sorted.

Very generic

2017-09-07

It's a more fun way for employees to interact than just via email.

Pros

The email notifications are handy too.

Cons

It looks very generic and unprofessional. You have to delete your cookies for profile updates to take place. The chat box doesn't have emojis, spell check, or allow you to have the chat up while navigating Noodle. It's just ok, overall.

Noodle Intranet

2016-02-18

Very good app, customer service is very responsive. Noodle is a all-in-one intranet package for small and large companies alike. Our account manager/trainer walked us through every aspect of the demo process and go-live. When we have questions, we get quick responses and or he fixes our problems. So far this has been the most economical and best fit solution we have come across. Our company has really benefited from our Noodle site.

Pros

Very easy to use. Has all of the basic needs for a intranet site.

Cons

Does not integrate with outlook/exchange calendars very well.

A great alternative if you want to build your inatrnet

2019-02-19

Pros

Noodle is very well made. Its easy to apply forums, interact with others inside the organization, and you're able to customize your own page just how you want.

Cons

The issues I found were similar to SharePoint and Wordpress in that you are almost limited with how you create your work, but nothing is impossible. Another issue I found was the pricing. If you have Office 365 license you could just use SharePoint. But Noddle is a good alternative if you're wanting to work around all that.
