Having a team that works perfectly together is one of the most important aspects of any company. Teamwork goes beyond business, just look at all of the teams competing in the Olympic Games – they need to know how to work together. A manager, whether it be for a business or sports team, knows how to empower their athletes… err, workers.
If you’ve ever watched the TV series, The IT Crowd, you know we’ve gotta get that joke out of the way first:
“Team! Team, team, team, team, team. I even love saying the word ‘team‘” – Denholm Reynholm (Chris Morris), The IT Crowd.
Now that we have your attention, it’s time to think about how your team operates when it comes to data analytics. Are they a cohesive, well-oiled machine, or is everyone trying to keep their head above water? If it’s the latter (or even the former, really), then let’s explore how Vizlib Collaboration for Qlik Sense can turn your team into a powerhouse!
Team collaboration should be at the heart of any project. By having multiple members of the organisation contribute their data knowledge and findings, companies can build stronger data insights. With the right collaborative product, like Vizlib Teamwork for Qlik Sense, users can kick-off data discussions right in their dashboards, for seamless collaboration!
A collaborative effort that gives every member of the team a voice, from data scientists to data capturers, and beyond. Every member of a team is unique and will have a valuable opinion or finding about a given dataset. And each person on the team needs to be able to ask questions about interesting data points – the more integrated the collaboration solution, the faster the answers. And the better the volume and quality of your business insights!
Communication is the all-powerful key to team success. With Vizlib Collaboration, all users can easily communicate inside of their data dashboards in real-time. It’s easy for teams to answer questions in minutes, saving valuable time and improving decision making.
It’s not just about the simple questions, such as “What is this?” or “When is this project due?” – Vizlib Teamwork, part of Vizlib Collaboration, goes beyond conversations. Users can add additional context to comments with the use of threaded replies, comment categories, emojis, and images. You can even tag your colleagues directly in comments for instant collaboration, subscribe to relevant conversations on a daily or weekly basis to keep up-to-date, or even get in-app notifications when you’re mentioned in a comment.
Vizlib constantly improves upon Collaboration with new features. We are always finding ways to make it the most user-friendly and easy-to-use data communication tool. With the latest version of Vizlib Teamwork, we added a range of new functionality to the extension.
Users can now share and edit comments in Qlik Sense. We all make mistakes – silly typos or pasting incorrect links – and the editing feature helps to clean up comments. After all, it’s not productive to have a project littered with unnecessary comments that don’t relate to the data. With the sharing feature, users can share comments outside of Vizlib Teamwork to draw attention to insights inside of an app, making communication across various departments and apps more streamlined than before.
Your team will never miss out on a valuable discussion with the user of notifications and subscriptions. And if they’re not part of a discussion yet, they can use the handy search function to look for the conversation thread. This should save your team time by removing the need to manually sift through endless interactions to find the exact message they need.
