If you’re one the many millions of people that work from home or telecommuting on a regular basis, no doubt you already enjoy a few benefits from doing so. This includes more flexible scheduling, less money needed for gas or commuting and other little things, such as listening to your preferred music while you work or just being able to axe a few of the normal office distractions.
That said, as you’re still spending your time and working with others not in your location, it can be helpful to have a tool to stay in regular contact with, sharing a variety of content keeping everyone aligned and moving forward. Here’s 10 benefits you can get when doing so with an Odysen solution.
- 1. Invite only who’s involved. This could be for a specific project or others that you regularly work with.
- 2. Organize topics or projects with intuitive folders. Create sub-folders as the project expands with options to see content integrated from all respective sub-folders.
- 3. Share projects with the Actions application. Assign owners to different actions, add an appropriate priority for each, add a due date if needed and change the status as the action gets complete. The status could be Unassigned, Assigned, In Progress, Pending, Completed or Verified. A few basic options to get the gist of what’s happening with a project.
- 4. Share commonly used websites in a centralized place. Add them to compliment other topics or projects, see an integrated view in the All folder.
