Your first experience with any new software can be intimidating. Then, add an entire team to that experience and it can suddenly become quite daunting.
We understand the challenges of getting everyone onboard with something new. So, here are some tips to help you get the most out of your team’s new collaboration space.
- During implementation, leverage how your team already works together.
Don’t get overwhelmed. Caboh offers a variety of features to support the way your team naturally works together. You can slowly integrate your team’s work habits into Caboh by focusing on one feature at a time. It helps to start with a feature that is familiar and directly impacts daily workflow.
For example, if your team relies heavily on chat for daily communication, implement just this feature until everyone is onboard.
- Encourage your team to take advantage of integrations.
For example, everyone can easily connect Drop Box to their Caboh file system in order to quickly gain access to all their important documents.
- Create and join groups to make sharing with others easier.
Groups are important and versatile because they can represent departments, projects, teams, or clubs. Caboh uses custom sharing to personalize each user experience, and as a shortcut, you can select a group name to quickly share with all the members of that group.
- Replace internal email communication with Caboh’s threaded discussions.
Discussions are a great way to collaborate! Upload, share, and discuss anything (like a file, video, picture, or link) with groups or individuals.
Help your team avoid time-consuming email reply threads, which make it impossible to keep up with ongoing conversations.
Hint: Anyone on your team who still relies on email to communicate won’t be left out. Email notifications and digests help you stay on top of any Caboh activity (like a new discussion).
- Upload the company website or blog RSS to your Caboh Dashboard.
This customization displays company news and updates for everyone with little effort. Once your blog or website is integrated with Caboh, it will update automatically and no one will have to leave Caboh to find the information they need.
