It’s a no-brainer – workplace organization i.e, keeping everyone in your company organized – is crucial. Lack of workplace organization can lead to negative consequences. Some of the effects may include forgotten appointments, unmet deadlines, lack of task priorities. Additionally, searching for misplaced information can cause individuals to lose track of time and not complete important work tasks. Moreover, workplace organization keeps all team members on the same page.
How OneDesk’s collaboration inbox facilitates workplace organization
OneDesk’s collaboration inbox is designed to facilitate workplace organization. With it, your team members can collaborate in real-time, and always be on the same page.
The collaboration inbox consists of a status bar that sits at the left of the interface and is always visible no matter where you are in the application. The status bar can be expanded to display an “outlook-like” sidebar with panels for each category of your collaboration.
