Enhance Chat with Workspaces
A distracting 'time stealer'
Chat is perfect when you want a casual conversation or require another user’s immediate attention. They’re not so welcome when they interrupt you, but you’re compelled to respond anyway
In contrast, conversations in workspaces are asynchronous and convenient; any ideas, issues, answers, and decisions, remain contained within a threaded discussion. You'll also find responses are more considered, as there’s no time pressure to reply.
Controlling shared files
Sharing files by chat is convenient but lacks version control. This often results in different variations of the same document becoming distributed, which can quickly cause chaos.
The solution is to upload your shared files and folders into a centrally managed workspace that automatically locks documents while editing. This retains version control and guarantees that everyone’s accessing the latest information available to them.
Attempting to keep remote teams accountable to deadlines, tasks and priorities using chat alone often ends up in convoluted discussion, with those involved trying to 'pass the buck'.
Workspaces provide transparency, to view activity and monitor team engagement. Knowing what needs to be completed, by whom and when, keeps everyone in the loop and gets the job done.
