Many times, conversations within an organization are not documented or tracked, which can lead to inefficiencies, unnecessary meetings, and miscommunication. Conversations in which key information can be shared often happen in elevators, hallways, meetings, emails, and even messaging systems, and the outcomes are not tracked to be followed up on. Discussion forums can help organizations capture communication regarding specific topics, issues, gathering and formulating ideas and suggestions, and more.
The Archer Discussion Forum app-pack can help you manage informal interactive communication within your organization. You can start a discussion and allow other users to respond to the posted topic. You can also associate a record in Archer and assign specific users to participate in the discussion or allow everyone in your organization to participate. In addition, you can track the outcomes of discussions to ensure any actions are completed. Once a discussion is closed, you can choose to delete or archive it.
The Archer Discussion Forum app-pack enables organizations to:
Post messages for discussion (i.e. questions, opinions, solutions, or ideas)
Assign participants to a discussion
Implement action plans from discussions
Associate discussions to an Archer record
