Do you ever question if the way you are communicating with someone is the most effective way you can relay your message? In business, we are bombarded with communications in the form of emails, meetings, calls, and more.
Now, with the emergence of messaging apps, new channels have surfaced that enable us to focus our work conversations into groups, topics, and threads. But with this increase in communication channels, we don’t always know which applications our colleagues prefer.
With Smartsheet, you can organize communications and continue to work in your preferred messaging app. Smartsheet connects seamlessly with some of your favorite messaging apps including Google’s Hangouts Chat, Slack, Skype for Business, Workplace by Facebook, Quip, and Microsoft Teams to centralize communication and help your team stay on track.
Discover some of the different ways you can use these messaging app integrations with Smartsheet to streamline communication and benefit your teams:
1) Direct Messages
Direct messages allow you to get all of your reminders, and @ mentions through the Smartsheet bot. Allowing you to stay in your preferred messaging application and keeping you in the loop and allowing you to take action on work when necessary. Direct messages can currently be sent to Slack, Workplace by Facebook, and Google’s Hangouts Chat (with Google Suite's account).
2) Channel Messages
Notifications can be sent to a group of people, where you are having a focused conversation on a specific topic. Alerts can also be sent out to these channels, allowing teams to stay in their app of choice, and have these communications be discoverable in easier ways. Utilize these channels messaging capabilities with our Slack integration.
3) In-app Messaging
Our integrations with Skype for Business and Google Hangouts allow for in-app messaging. This enables you to easily see if coworkers are online allowing for real-time communication. Chats are automatically added to comments to your sheet, so you can track these conversations in Smartsheet.
