Bringing the team together in a shared online workspace just for them
At Glip, we view the ideal team collaboration app as sort of a digital tree house, a shared, private workspace a team can create just for its own members and keep track of everything happening on a specific project.
When you set up a Glip team to manage a new project and invite all of the relevant team members into that private online workspace, you immediately have a home base to start making progress. Here are just some of the tools your Glip workspace offers.
Chat in real time
Effective team collaboration starts with quick and easy communication. With Glip’s real-time chat, you can share ideas with your team whenever and wherever they occur, including from your RingCentral mobile app, and everyone in your Glip team or conversation will see it immediately.

Let’s say you want to show your team a document you’ve just drafted for the project. Don’t waste your time (or theirs) with an email. Just drag and drop that file right into your Glip team’s conversation. Now everyone can see it, and Glip even lets them pin notes and suggestions to the draft for you.
As you add files of any kind to your Glip team’s conversation (documents, presentations, images, and MP3s), Glip will store them for you in your online workspace where you can easily find them anytime.

Start a video chat
Sometimes posting a chat message in your Glip communication stream is all you need to collaborate effectively with your team. You text a question, a teammate chats back the answer immediately, and you’re all set.
But other times you’ll want a deeper, more involved conversation with your team. No problem, you can start a team video chat with just one click in your Glip online workspace. You’ll get 500 minutes of video calling with the free version of Glip.
Share your screen
Even during a video meeting, sometimes it’s more powerful to show your team what you mean than just explaining it to them. For those times, Glip lets anyone on your video call share their screen with the team to make sure everyone is on the same page.

When your team is tackling a project in a shared Glip workspace, task management isn’t a separate tool your coworkers have to keep popping out of to check and update. Everyone can track their tasks (and update each other on their progress) right in Glip.
In fact, because task management is so seamlessly woven right into the RingCentral app, you can create a task right in your chat box as you’re typing a message. For example, you want to let the team know a package of vendor samples is due to your office on Tuesday. You set yourself a new task, “Show team samples,” that you’ll do as soon as the package comes in. Now you’ve got a task that Glip will remind you about, and everyone on the team knows to expect your presentation sometime Tuesday.
