Maybe you’ve already reached the point where you communicate and collaborate via Confluence, Linchpin intranet, Jira, as well as with Hangouts Chat and other Google G Suite tools. However, you know all too well, there’s always that one person that hits “reply to all.” Maybe someone received a customer email, has attached their comments/questions, and has now forwarded it to 3 or 4 people? At first glance, it doesn’t seem that dramatic, right? Over time, however, it can snowball into a chaotic series of replies, forwards, and quoted emails.
Companies want flexibility, they want their software to respond more quickly to changes in their requirements, and, of course, they want cost savings. They don’t want to worry about when, how, and why their services work – they just want them to work, every time. Unfortunately, when it comes to choosing a modern cloud-based office suite, many companies don’t look at the big picture. Many who used MS Office in the past transitioned into Microsoft’s cloud suite Office 365 without evaluating it any further – or considering alternatives. If you take a closer look at the available cloud based office solutions, you’ll come up with some interesting and valuable findings. When considering which cloud based office solution is best for you and your team, it’s a good idea to rethink things, to specify what your requirements are, and then to identify objective weaknesses in your current office solution. There are viable alternatives to Office 365: most notably Google G Suite.
Many companies stress the importance of maintaining a certain degree of uniform formality in how they use email to communicate with the outside world. It’s impossible to establish such universal standards across hundreds or even thousands of employees in an organization if they don’t have any options to control outgoing emails centrally.
Thankfully there are solutions such as Exclaimer, which offers professional, centrally controlled email signatures for G Suite with Gmail as well as other platforms. At a Google Cloud breakfast in Wiesbaden, representatives from Exclaimer gave us a tutorial presentation.
After releasing Inbox in May 2015, the free supplement to Google’s primary email service, Gmail, was taken offline in April 2019. Luckily, many of the popular features found in Inbox have been integrated into Gmail, so users can still enjoy the increased productivity promoted by many of Inbox’s helpful functions. In this article, we’ll consider several Inbox features and look at how we can recreate them in Gmail.
Among other things, the social intranet suite Linchpin enhances Confluence by offering users the opportunity to receive personalized company news in a visually appealing format.

We were delighted to have the opportunity to interview Nick Muldoon and Teagan Harbridge from Easy Agile about two very useful Jira apps, as well as the GDPR and other very topical issues in the technology sector.
You probably already know about Gmail, but are you aware of Google’s new Inbox by Gmail? Inbox is Google’s modern mail service and it’s what Gmail should have become long ago.

Email continues to be the main medium for digital communication in many companies, and at the same time is one of the biggest time wasters and productivity killers. Email is fast, convenient, and normal – and is often abused to a greater degree than any other digital communications technology.
One of the biggest problems is that email communication is frequently ‘unofficial’, as the contents are not centrally documented, transparent, and available to the entire organization. This does not mean that I want to condemn email as a whole – there are good and bad emails.
We have collected 99 reasons, that speak for the implementation of HipChat in your team and in your organization – all very compact and nearly all within the length of a tweet of 140 characters.
A few days ago, I had to put up with Winfried Felser calling me a “fake.” It was meant as a joke because I had told Winfried that some of my tweets are automatically generated from a blog and our public microblog. In a way, he is right. I really did up my Twitter game in October or November last year – first via Buffer and now Hootsuite. It’s been working really well so far. And I’ve always answered and responded personally and will continue to do so.
