Introducing Discussions

You know the funny part about getting work done with the team? The actual collaboration part happens virtually everywhere — in online and offline meetings, through email, in Slack, and even the document itself.

Teams are social! They need to talk if they want to get their best work done. And while Slack is amazing for real-time communication, it’s not exactly the best at storing highly-relevant threads and referring back to them from the source of work.

The communication was scattered all over the place. But wouldn’t it make sense to keep the work-specific conversations to .. well… the place where you actually manage the work?

That’s why Rindle just added this critical feature to the project automation platform: Discussions.

Effortlessly communicate with team members on your boards

With Discussions, you’ll be able to communicate and collaborate with your team directly in the board you’re working in.

All you have to do is click on the Discussions view from the board and click “Create New Discussion”.

Type in your mind-blowing thoughts, ideas, directions, you name it.

From there, you can format your discussion, and publish the discussion where your team can respond, comment, and well, discuss!

Got a critical discussion that everyone needs to quickly see? Just pin it to the top of the discussion list.

Get feedback on drafts and final versions

Discussions enable teams to upload and collaborate on virtually any kind of draft or final version. This is especially helpful if you don’t want to put the feedback or comments in the task itself.

To keep tasks free of this kind of collaboration in the comments section, just create a discussion instead! Name it after the draft for review with a version number or date. Then invite your team to leave their comments and add their thoughts / critiques.

Store training and vital process information

Discussions are more than just commenting back and forth. You can also use them to communicate information about a process or even store vital training information.

Since discussions provide formatting options like an article, you can easily outline a process or workflow you want the team to take. You can even store information regarding how you want team members to use the board.

Create a discussion to store editorial guidelines, marketing personas, content or interview templates, OKRs, and so much more.

Collaborate on client projects

Providing context or getting feedback on a major client deliverable just got a lot more organized. Instead of scrolling endlessly in chat for that one comment or piece of feedback you need on the document, just simply create a discussion on it in Rindle.

Get feedback on SOWs, important documents, and other deliverables in a discussion. If you use Rindle to manage clients, then you can even invite them to the board and use discussions as a way to communicate and collaborate.
