Frequently asked questions about Intranets

An intranet is a private network used by an organization to securely share information and resources internally among employees only. Essentially, it’s a central place where you can store and share anything, from employee handbooks to product documentation, confidential information and more.

A solution like Softr allows you to create your own intranet, without code. This means that you’re not only able to customise the look and feel of your intranet but also create dedicated pages and folders, set permissions for everyone in your team (who can see, edit and comment on what), and more.

If you’re interested in providing your employees with a secure, efficient platform to share their work, safely access their important documents and work as a team, you should absolutely consider building an intranet for your business.

Security is one of the key benefits of intranet portals. In essence, it allows businesses to control the information that is shared and accessed, and to make sure that confidential information doesn’t get leaked outside of the organization.

Softr provides cream of the crop security features, which you can learn more about in our security page.

Anyone can use an intranet, as long as they’ve been granted access by the owner (usually the admin/owner). Intranet portals are used by a variety of organizations for a variety of benefits: Some startups implement an intranet for improved collaborations and smoother processes, while large corporations favour it for security reasons.

Using Softr, you are able to build an intranet with the following features: Secured login, Server-side authentication powered by AWS, custom permissions, integration with other tools (chat, productivity analytics, and more), Multiplatform (iOs, Android), and more.
