When you have an idea that you want to get down in black and white but don’t want to waste time opening up a separate app to jot it down, save time and create a Note right from your Email Inbox. Notes are all online, are cross-platform, and as dynamic as you and your team. Notes can be used for anything from your weekly to-do list or your book club’s reading list, to workflows for large projects or managing your team’s tasks. Teams of all sizes can create, edit, and have a side-bar conversation thanks to an integrated chat within the Note.
Your Note updates in real time as changes and inputs are made to it and pops to the top of your Inbox––notifying you of changes in an unobtrusive way to keep you on your flow. All of this happens right from within your Inbox, so you can eliminate the use of multiple apps or long emails threads. Just seamless productivity in a unified workspace.
To begin harnessing the power of this incredible tool, start your online Note by selecting the Compose icon at the bottom of your Inbox. Select ‘Create Note’ and add participants by selecting the people icon in the top right corner. Now you can begin to create, customize, add images, video, save and share files, and more without leaving your Inbox.
Your best laid plans are safe and secure. Only share Notes with those that need to be involved and be instantly notified of any changes or additions. When someone writes you in the sidebar chat or adds content to the Note, it automatically pops to the top of your feed in your Inbox.
Once you’ve created your Note, add participants and select their usage permissions (Can View, Can Edit, Private) by selecting the on the top right corner of your workspace, and voila! Everyone is in the loop!
Notes can be shared with everyone––even non-Spike users. No need to log-in, install, or create an account––it’s the online Notes app of your dreams. Sharing Notes makes sure everyone stays on the same page – pun intended.
Sharing Notes online, especially from the comfort of your Inbox, means your team is always aligned when it’s most convenient for them thanks to instant updates backed by the convenience of asynchronous communication. It’s perfect for teams of all sizes, and allows everyone to collaborate––even non-Spike users. By sharing Notes right from your Inbox, you cut out the middle-man of third-party collaboration apps, saving space on your device, and keeping your workflow consistent because there’s no need to open up separate windows or tabs. It’s unified to save you time.
Another meeting means precious minutes spent, and important minutes that need to be taken. Meeting minutes taken with Notes help you and your team (and anyone that was not able to attend) go over important points discussed in the meeting to help you and your team reach your goals. Can’t remember what that manager said about that report? No problem. Refer to the minutes you’ve taken.
Got a two hour lecture on the human genome, or a study group with multiple members and need a place to share everything? Easy––create a Note to be shared with your classmates––even if they don’t use Spike. Using a Note for educational purposes makes the process seamless and collaborative because different team members can take down information, add comments or questions, and view all of it instantly and brainstorm on the spot. You can even share files and additional study materials right into the Note, saving space on your device. How’s that for team work?
