Dashboard with Strategies, Norms, Roles & Success Measures
Every team needs structure and focus. Use the Remote Teams Online Dashboard to define your strategies, create norms, establish team roles and set the success measures that will keep you on track. Use the dashboard for your regular “team huddles” to ensure everyone is always up to speed and on board.
Project Workspaces with Task Lists, Priority Tracking & Status
Many teams don’t need advanced project management software – in fact, they’d be encumbered by it. They need easy-to-use task tracking that allows for focus on the details without losing track of the big picture. The Kanban Team Collaboration workspace provides just that, and it’s simple to get your team up and running instantly.
Affinity Maps for Organizing Ideas
All teams have ideas. Great teams translate ideas into action. The Affinity Mapping app gives your team a simple way to “post” ideas on a virtual wall, group them into themes and distill the best themes into something meaningful. Create process maps, track hot topics and more.
Brainstorming for Collecting and Prioritizing Ideas
Brainstorming is a fundamental process for most teams. The Brainstorm Process app provides a structured approach for creating brainstorming norms, setting prioritization criteria and defining categories for ideas. Quickly generate ideas, build on others’ ideas using interactive comments, prioritize the best and view and download results.
Project Management with Multi-Project Roll-up Dashboard
Many teams want advanced project management features. The Project Management & Roll-up Dashboard includes more traditional project management tools. Build out a Gantt chart with tasks and sub-tasks, assign users, track the percentage complete of specific tasks and projects, and get notifications around due dates and overdue tasks. View multiple projects in a single Multi-Project Roll-up Dashboard.
Data & Documents from Google Drive, SharePoint and More
Most teams have data and documents scattered across many applications, share drives and hard drives. The Remote Teams Command Center helps integrate everything into a single place, so your SharePoint files like PowerPoint and Excel are easily accessed alongside Google Drive files. Connectors to other applications like JIRA provide seamless access to data and tools already used by your team, so you don’t need to reinvent the wheel.
Use with Zoom, Webex & other Web & Video Conferencing
Most teams already use real-time video conferencing tools for individual meetings and large group virtual summit events. But many of these tools don’t have a consistent “environment” that provides a real “home” for your team. Continue using whatever live communication tools you want, and use the Remote Teams Command Center to organize and coordinate your ongoing work.
Great software? Yes. But we give you something as important: Deep knowledge about what makes teams tick, with expert guidance to create your winning team.
