FAQ about Team Chat and Messaging
- Advanced search function
When things get busy, it is ridiculously easy to miss pings and messages from co-workers. A good team chat and messaging app (like RingCentral) should have an advanced search function to help you find buried documents, links, and past conversations without turning the task into a time-consuming ordeal.
Moreover, you should be able to search not only by keywords but by date ranges, contacts, groups, file types, other filters, and even settings. Not every communication app has that option—but RingCentral does! In addition, RingCentral also allows users to pin and bookmark comments for easier access to information and files. You want to sweat your current on-premises PBX for a few more years, but you also need video meetings and team messaging tools for some users in your company.
- Seamless integration
A team messaging app should seamlessly integrate with the other communications tools you are using, such as your cloud phone system and video conferencing service. The RingCentral app unified messaging, enterprise telephony, and rich video conferencing in a single app experience.
Furthermore, the RingCentral app leverages the breadth and depth of our integration library, allowing users to embed third-party applications in the team messaging experience with RingCentral Add-Ins.
- Collaboration features
Team messaging apps have evolved to become an excellent means for keeping track of business to-dos. RingCentral, for instance, allows users to create tasks in any conversation, be it for direct or group messaging.
You can also reply directly to the task so that when you click it, you can open up and view all replies corresponding to it. This prevents relevant comments from being buried by other messages in the chat room.
You should also look for a messaging platform that allows users to share files, documents, links, images, and videos. This can save you the time and trouble of opening a new browser and digging through files sent through email or online storage drives.
- Presence status
Online, offline, in a meeting, on a phone call, or busy with a rush task? Your presence status in the messaging app can help team members make better decisions about who to contact and when to do so.
Juggling multiple conversations and meetings can be a challenge, and it’s only a matter of time before you’ll find yourself drowning in messages. When you have the option to create customizable personal folders, things can be more manageable.
You can put direct and group conversations into folders and categorize them according to priority, project deadlines, or any criteria you want. Clicking on the folders will reveal (and hide) conversations, allowing for a more organized dashboard.
- Emojis and GIFs
When you hear the term business communications, you probably associate it with professionalism. But even in the most formal of workplaces, casual conversations also exist! For those moments, emojis and GIFs are a great way to add a bit of fun to your messages.
You can use them to send a response to a significant achievement, a funny joke, a friendly banter, or a minor announcement. You can also send a thumbs up as an acknowledgment of a message.
