Email is notoriously inefficient, producing tangled message threads, endless reply-alls, overflowing inboxes and unavoidable confusion. Jive’s Gmail integration stops the madness by letting you convert email strings to discussions in Jive. The conversation can be private (restricted to individuals of your choice) or public (held in Jive collaborative spaces) and can include attachments. You can also take part in existing discussions, comment on documents and blog posts, and more, all from Gmail. You have full access to Jive social functions like @mentioning, liking, sharing and more. And since the discussion is taking place in Jive, it’s fully searchable and reusable, so nothing gets lost.
Email generally provides little information on the person you’re communicating with, other than a bare-bones signature. Jive’s Gmail integration adds the missing social context, letting you view rich profiles of everyone you’re talking to.
