Things you're missing out if you still haven't tried cloud collaboration
Time are changing and technology is developing as fast. Even before the pandemic, people have already created and had been using tools that are designed to improve collaboration process.
1. Easily accessible since it's a web-based app – Yes, you read that right. You can access the app itself through the web without having to download the app itself. This is the main difference between a web-based app and a cloud-based app. Even on the go, even on a mobile phone, you can participate on a project.
2. Permission levels – Let's face it, for a work you've spent hours on, you just won't let anybody to edit it. With cloud-collaboration tools, you can set who can edit, who can view and who's not allowed until the work is done.
3. Versioning track – Next problem with collaboration is knowing whether your work has been edited, or knowing if it's the latest version after all the edits. With cloud-collaboration, you can easily track the changes through versioning and you can even have identified who's the last person to touch the file. It also makes it easier in case the latest update on the file gets rejected, you can sync it back to the previous version with no problem at all.
4. Real-time communications, less emails – You know emails work, as well as the pros and cons of it. So it would be agreeable to say that there is a delay when we communicate via email. With cloud-collaboration, you can use message boards, comments and real-time chat to communicate faster with everyone involved. You can even send a private message to a specific person if you need clarification when not everyone needs to be asked.
5. Single sign on (SSO) – With this line of work, it's normal to use multiple applications which means multiple passwords that can drive just about anyone crazy. Cloud-collaboration offers SSO which means your username and password will allow you to access everything that is accessible for your logins, saving time for password resets.
There's more to discuss but these are the most impactful ones. Cloud-collaboration is designed to make things easier, after all. Do visit our website at https://cloud9-
