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

Keeping an eye out for ease of use and rich but simple feature set that met our requirements.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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. Messaging needs a little improvement, but I believe will come with time.

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.
