If you go to work each day and collaborate solely with the same core group of people, you are pretty lucky. If you are like most of us, each project, task or event brings in different people from inside and outside your organization. Things can get hectic, but Samepage helps you organize how you interact with others.
You experience the power of Samepage.io once you use it with a larger group of people who work toward a common goal. The marketing team at Kerio uses Samepage with essentially three types of groups. Some projects are developed inside the marketing team itself and other people don't need to have access. For many other projects, we work closely with other groups inside Kerio, like development or sales. And finally, we then we work with external audiences like design agencies, freelancers, etc. Each group needs to have different access rights to Samepage.
Made popular largely by Facebook, the concept of inviting friends has now permeated through many online services. It's a key concept for Samepage, too. We call it Sharing and it gives you a way to invite people in your organization to your page and specify what they can and can't do with the page. But, not everybody needs to be part of the core team. You may want to invite an external designer or accountant or your customer to just one or two project pages. So, within the same Sharing dialog, you can send a link to your page to an external user you want to invite.
We also thought, wouldn't it be nice to solve the "This is the first I've heard of this" problem? Following pages or spaces lets you stay on top of things, or as we like to say "get on the same page." Most team projects are living, breathing things. It's pretty sweet to get email notifications as content evolves or matures. We built Samepage notifications to be social. We feel better about reading a user-generated comment "This is what I did and why" rather than a system-generated message "User X uploaded a new version of a file".
The Kerio marketing team has one large Samepage space called (you guessed it) "Marketing". Everybody in the team "favorites it". It works just like a Facebook 'Like', for every page you like, you'll get email notifications, and this user-driven social commentary then appears in your Samepage News Feed.
Sign up at Samepage.io, put up your team project or soccer practice schedule, and invite a few friends to work on it with you. And tell us what you think.
