You can message with colleagues not only in chat rooms and channels. In ELMA365 you can discuss files, tasks, app items directly on the object page in the so-called associated activity stream. Important comments will not be lost in personal chats, all information is shown on the object's page and is always available for users. In addition, in the associated activity stream, you can share files and @mention colleagues.
Task activity stream
You can ask all your questions regarding the task right in the task activity stream.
You can write in the activity stream of any task, located in My Tasks, Assisting, Assigned by me sections. This feature is available to the author, executors, approvers, and participants of the task. Messages are shown in the associated activity stream of the tasks as well as in the #Activity stream of each user participating in the conversation.
Please note that the associated activity stream of a task looks differently, depending on the section:
- My tasks, Assisting
- Assigned by me
File activity stream
To open the file activity stream, open the file preview page and in the upper right corner click on the icon. In the side panel, you will see the file activity stream. Use @mentions to draw a colleague's attention to your comment.
Messages that you and your colleagues leave in the file activity stream are also shown in the #Activity stream of all the participants of the conversation.
App item activity stream
You can work with the app item activity stream in a pretty similar manner as with the activity stream of a task or a file. To write a message, open a workspace, select an app and then click on the app. On the page that opens, on the side panel, you will see the activity stream.
Leave a comment, and if necessary use @mentions.
