Boost communication in Google Drive Workflow with Collavate Post features

Introducing Collavate Post

Collavate is proud to announce the release of our integrated Post feature that companies and organizations can utilize for team and project discussion purposes.

Collavate is an approval workflow application for Google Drive. You can initiate workflows from your Google Docs or Drive’s user interface.  Collavate facilitates teamwork and, now, with our Post feature we take teamwork and collaboration to another level!

Effective communication is vital to carrying out successful projects, publishing, and meeting end goals.  With Collavate Post, users can have active discussions, share ideas, and further collaborate as never before.

Post allows users to instantly log on and catch up with his/her team and colleagues by checking the activity that has taken place on the post page while they were away. Collavate Post keeps all users in the loop while allowing room for brainstorming and reaching consensus decisions.

Users of the domain can share thoughts by posting on the dashboard or by process files directly from the Post page.
