What’s Coming in TeamLab?
TeamLab, through its forthcoming release, is introducing some useful new enhancements to its coud-based, project management application. To add to the release of the first smartphone app for iPhone and Android, TeamLab is introducing two new key features:
Management of Access rights: the new functionality will see users having the ability to control who sees what within the TeamLab portal. The ability to create ‘closed’ projects that are only accessible by its direct members is one of the updates to this part of the application’s functionality. In addition, individual access to other parts of the TeamLab portal, including, tasks, discussions, documents, and many others, that are contained within a closed project can also be set.
The new access rights management functionality is expected to hit users in the next two months.
Improved document handling: Centralized storage of project related documents and files is a key attraction of cloud based applications. The new functionality for the documents section of TeamLab will see a number of enhancements for its users, including:
Versioning for documents – when a document has been edited, a new version of the document will automatically be saved for the user. A new “Show all versions” button now lets the user see a history of all changes.
Document previews – The new preview function for documents means you don’t have to download a file into your TeamLab account. Instead you can see, print and even update documents through the web.
Enhancements for information sharing: the new release will include the ability to use direct links to both files and folders giving a really simple way to share information amongst the project team. In addition, documents and folders can be share directly from the ‘My Documents’ folder.
TeamLab has a strong contingent of Apple Mac and Linux clients and, with this in mind, intend to release TeamLab web-office, which allow these users to have the editing functionality when working in a browser that doesn’t have the Ascensio System Plug-in installed. The ability to launch the fully-featured OpenOffice, however, on the TeamLab portal will be offered to all Windows users.
As always, TeamLab are keen to receive feedback on their application and suggestions for futher improvements to funtionality. You can contribute on their Facebook page, twitter account or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
