In this astonishing world where almost all humans in the world are connected by a device in their pocket (or wearable) there are some great tools available. In the modern day there are so many good tools to improve team communication that I wonder how I ever used to manage before the year 2000. One here at Search & Be Found that we use daily is called Slack. Able to be used on all devices you will wonder how you got on before using it too.
Organize your team conversations in open channels. Make a channel for a project, a topic, a team, or anything—everyone has a transparent view of all that’s going on. For sensitive information, create private channels and invite a few team members
Send messages directly to another person or to a small group of people for more focused conversations.
Take a conversation from typing to face-to-face by starting a Slack voice or video call in any Channel or Direct Message. From there, you're one click away from sharing your screen, so everyone can follow along.
Drag, drop, and share your files.
Not just your messages, but all your files, images, PDFs, documents, and spreadsheets can be dropped right into Slack and shared with anyone you want. Add comments, star for later reference, and it’s all completely searchable.
If you use any services like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box, just paste the link and that document is immediately in sync and searchable too.
