No matter what your area of expertise is, who you consult for, or what your role is on a project, there is almost always a need for a private conversation between a few of the participants. People working on a project generally have a role:
- The guy who’s the main collaborator with his feet on the ground
- The lady who signs the checks, but isn’t really involved in the day-to-day
- The boss who’s fragmented and should only be involved in the final review phase
- The peanut gallery that asks if "that should be blue…?"
In our old workspace, unless you kept the project participants fairly tight, it was difficult to keep things private without reverting back to email and losing the power of capturing all conversation/documents in one place. With the new Mavenlink workspace and private messaging, this is an issue of the past. You can now have all interested parties participating in the project, but be confident that you can include only the right audience on any message/attachment.
We were pretty sure this would be a big request and we were correct. We didn’t want to build it until enough people asked. Try it out and let us know what you think!
