Just about every intranet homepage has some form of “quick links”. On many intranets the list is labelled exactly as that. On other homepages these links are referred to differently. But they always play the same role.
These lists of links are important. They offer direct access to deeper sections of the intranet and to other enterprise applications and websites. Quick links are often a task-based complement to more news-heavy homepages.
So we’ve compiled six different examples of intranet homepage quick links, all from entries in DWG’s My Beautiful Intranet 2014 competition. I hope this helps intranet and digital workplace managers explore what’s possible and what’s popular, and make key design decisions.
