Collaboration

Collaboration enables users to send text based messages to a group of people. This easy to deploy and configurable feature is available on
Android
and
iOS
smartphones. The security of collaboration messages is enhanced with GDPR and HIPAA compliance. Only an administrator can initiate Collaboration.
When you upgrade your app, or install a new version of the app on
Android
or
iOS
smartphones, you are automatically enrolled for collaboration, if your organization has configured the feature. When you tap hamburger menu icon
> Collaborate
in the menu, the list of collaborations that you are a part of displays in descending order of the creation date. Collaborations that have unread messages are displayed on the top of the list.
