5 Easy and Productive Ways To Move From Email To Office Chat

Imagine entering a visually stimulating and vibrant office space with passionate, motivated and dedicated employees. But instead of laptops or workstations, these employees are still made to work on – typewriters.

For many office workers, this is close to reality.

For them, a typical work day starts off by ineffectively checking their emails first thing in the morning. Instead of focusing on the most important tasks at hand, most employees end up tangled in multiple email threads, spams, auto replies, etc. during what should be their most productive hours of the day. Much like looking for a needle in a haystack, the massive hunt for meaningful communication in emails is now a mundane and unproductive activity.

Today, with the rising number of smartphone users, business communication has changed quite rapidly in recent years. Employees can now be much more productive and creative outside of their email inboxes. With this as our top priority, we designed Office Chat to incorporate the best of both group chats and secure private chats with high accessibility and secure admin controls.

If you are thinking about switching from email to Office Chat to make your team more productive, here are a few tips to help your team make the transition:


1. Email To A Single Recipient:

With Office Chat you can communicate with your colleagues in one-on-one private chats with ease. Office Chat messages are short and instant.

If you wish to connect with a colleague on Office Chat, simply click on their profile and start messaging them. You can connect with them on your smartphones, desktop and web browser on your Office Chat network. It is a much better way to communicate with colleagues, as you know when they are online and you can get updates in real time.

2. Email To Multiple Recipients:

Want to start a conversation with multiple colleagues? With Office Chat, you can create adhoc groups and add colleagues to ensure that messages are sent to all the concerned members at once. Each message you send to a coworker via Office Chat contains an indicator that acknowledges the delivery of the message. The read receipt feature ensures that the messages have actually been read by all the members. Also, in hyper real-time mode, your messages can be viewed character by character.

3. Email On A Topic To A Targeted Audience:

If you wish to have a discussion with your teammates or department, Office Chat Groups (created based on Teams, Departments, Projects, etc.) will help you share relevant information within the group. Everyone within the group will have a transparent and real time view of all that’s going on. Adding new members and removing members from a group is simple. Also, accessing Office Chat on the go using smartphones and the desktop app keeps your team updated.

4. Email A Document Or File Attachment:

There’s no doubt that social networks have changed the way we communicate. Videos, images, GIFs, memes, emojis and more are now a new way of expressing and sharing information effectively.

Office Chat not only gives you the option to send text messages, but you can also share documents, videos, and more. Upload files (any size up to 2GB) into any conversation. Sharing images, videos, audio and GIFs is as easy as selecting the appropriate icon.Office Chat Rich Media Files


5. Forward An Email Message Or Attachment

Collaboration via feedback is one of the most important pillars of today’s business communication. Most often forwarding messages and attachments to bosses or colleagues is often a step to obtain feedback or approval.

With Office Chat, you can simply drag and drop attachments and files. With over 100 Gb of files storage and features to search chat history and even file contents, you can easily share relevant files and attachments with your direct reports, colleagues and senior staff.
