Note: Instructions below apply to Version 12.0. For Version 12.5 and up, please click Assets tab, and click + button next to Sites.
To remove the side menu, go to your In/Out board dept site > toolbox > Widgets|Page Layout option, look for the Department Navigation widget displaying on either the left or right column. Click the delete icon to remove the menu from this dept site.
Next, add the employee Status Updates widget. This can allow you select specific departments or All departments on the intranet.
You can make customizations to your widget as you see fit. Above, there are some suggestions as to what you may possibly want to display.
Here you can see the Status Update widget displayed on the department page you created:
As an additional step, you can add a link to this application from the top navigation menu to make it easy for anyone to view. Should the employee want to update their status, they can do so by either going to their profile or going to this new department site and clicking "Add Status".
