When your coworkers are at different locations and you’re not able to see them face to face most of the time, you’ll need to find the best ways to communicate in different situations. For example, you may need to use instant messaging or call software to connect with colleagues for emergency matters. For cases that are not that much of an emergency or require longer periods of thoughtful communication (such as project communication), emails or forum-type comments may be the best choice. Anyways, you’ll be able to use most communication programs as long as you have its required network connections, so there is almost no excuse for employees to not communicate efficiently.
The comments function in Ragic is the easiest way to communicate with your colleagues for work. As this function exists on any record on Ragic, any user in your database with the access rights to the record will be able to comment to have a discussion on the record or a task. For example, if the record is a project meeting, users may comment to request to reschedule it. In addition, you may attach images or files in the comments section, and anyone with access to the record will be able to access and use the uploaded data too.
With emails being one of the primary tools for professional communication, using it with Ragic can also be an essential communication method. Ragic’s email function allows users to send different kinds of customized emails and keep track of the communication within each record. For instance, if you would like the send information of selected fields in a record, you may customize the parameters in the email template and then send the record out directly from Ragic. After the email is sent, you are then able to manage the email conversation within Ragic; the email replies will be displayed in each record, and you can continue the conversation directly from there. On a side note, there is no limitations to who you can send the emails to, as long as the recipient has a valid email address. This means that rather than only the users within your database, you can actually email anyone from Ragic.
Whenever your entries consist of addresses, Ragic’s mapping tools can be a helpful tool as it provides a visual representation of the locations regarding all the addresses on your sheet.
On your records, you may have noticed that the address field values’ colors are blue with a clickable option rather than the usual black text. This is because the addresses in Ragic are integrated with Google Maps, and click on that type of field will direct you to the location on the mapping tool on your computer browser or on your phones. If you are a salesperson traveling to different places, this function will make your lives much easier when you’re trying to find places as you won’t have to copy and paste or memorize addresses and enter them on your selected mapping application. Ragic makes that process more efficient and straightforward.
If you are the manager that wants to see where all your sales staff will be on a certain day, you can successfully do so with an address mapping report. Let’s say on your sheet, you have a list of all the upcoming sales visits from all the members of your team with all the addresses noted. To see all the locations of the visits on a certain date on a map, simply filter your records by the selected date and publish a mapping report. Now on the integrated Google Map, all the visiting locations will be pointed out clearly. As a manager, this tool will help you to have an idea of the locations of all your team members.
To conclude, Ragic can basically serve as a communication platform with all the data and documents needed for an organization. So no matter where you and your colleagues are, you can always stay connected to each other with your Ragic database. And with all the convenience provided in the database application, there are not many valid excuses for the inability of communication.
