“All your team discussions in one place, in the “All Conversations” section” of Team Zeus!”
Contrary to email, the main objective of Team Zeus is to facilitate team conversations, in order to enhance the level of cooperation and increase productivity between work colleagues.
Discussions on Team Zeus take place in different channels. For the sake of clarity and organisation, the application also automatically categorises users’ messages, so employees don’t have to waste their time managing their inbox – Team Zeus takes care of their admin for you!
We understand that team conversations usually take place within a group that is linked to a department or a common routine workflow shared by people from different departments, but the occasion may arise where people from different departments that are not part of the same group, need to speak together. Should this situation arise, a temporary conversation can be created, to which different groups or/and individual users can be added. These can be found in ‘Other Conversations’.
Some users may struggle to remember where a recent chat is located, and may not know whether the discussion was part of a group or was in ‘other conversations’; they may even not recall in which group it took place or the name of the conversation.
Fortunately, Team Zeus gives you the solution to track down your team discussions, with the ‘All Conversations’ section.
WHAT’S THE ‘ALL CONVERSATIONS’ SECTION?
The ‘All Conversations’ section combines together all the team conversations to which you have been added. Hence, messages from your groups or ‘other conversations’ can all be found in this location, removing the need for you to navigate through all your different channels, and allowing you to continue your conversation from where you let off.
Discussions in ‘All Conversations’ are organised in inverse chronological order, with the most recent chats displayed at the top. The date of the last message is also displayed next to each team conversations, enabling users to easily trace messages by dates.
Users can also narrow down their search for a conversation by applying different toggles, which are available under the ‘All’ drop-down menu at the top, and include the following:
1. Active conversations
By pressing the ‘Active conversations’ toggle, the application will only show team conversations that were active in the last 14 days. Consequently by using this button, users can view their most recent team discussions.
2. Archived conversations
By applying the ‘Archived Conversations’ toggle, users can reduce the scope of their search to view older messages in conversations that have been left inactive for more than 14 days. This can be handy if you know that the content you are looking for is not recent, and saves you from searching through the entire list of conversations.
If the message you are looking for contained important information, or if you remember that you had to mark it as read, you can apply the “Announcements” toggle. By selecting this option, you can filter conversations to only view announcements.
THE LIMIT OF THE ‘ALL CONVERSATIONS’ FUNCTIONALITY
The ‘All Conversations’ view lists all the conversations you’ve had, but doesn’t include one-to-one chats with one single user.
To access a private chat that you just had with one colleague, you can instead use the ‘Recently Viewed’ functionality, or type the name of your co-worker in the search bar and click on his/her profile to start chatting together.
As a result, the ‘All Conversations’ section will help you to find a conversation in no time, without having to remember its location, exact date or name. ‘All Conversations’ is incredibly handy when you have a memory lapse and don’t know where to look for a conversation
Next time you need to locate one of your team conversations, save yourself a considerable amount of time, and check the ‘All Conversations’ section!
