Just about everyone has something to share. With Jam, they can actually do that. Jam has incredibly easy-to-use, video and screen capture for sharing how to, what works, and what's new. Jam's content contribution tools also includes a complete set of Enterprise 2.0 tools, including microblogging, blogs, wikis, social docs, polls, tasks, etc, that integrate with your company's private social network. Not only can your team get more done in fewer clicks, but since it's all integrated, everyone gets an automated notification when new content and updates are posted.
Video & Screen Recordings
With Jam, everyone can create, share and view videos. You can record a video with your webcam or mobile phone, record your screen, or upload a video or recording that already exists. Jam publishes a video preview and lets you playback inline, full screen or from your mobile device. Jam automatically formats your videos to be securely streamed to browsers and to mobile phones. Like any feed item, users can add comments and send it via direct message to others.
Explore in Jam and you'll discover relevant content across the organization. You can find high quality and popular content fast, by exploring the most viewed, most liked, and featured content. Explore is personalized based on the people and groups you follow.
In the organization, microblogging is a way for users to quickly communicate critical information to a broad audience and receive timely responses. You can post a question, share news, ideas, documents, and post status updates, for other people within your organization's network to review, reply, comment, or simply indicate they "like" your post. You can also add files, photos, links and tasks to your updates.
With Jam's Social Docs, it's easy to upload and share all types of files. Without downloading the document, your co-workers can view and comment inside most business documents including Microsoft Office files, .rtf, .csv, .pdf, as well as other file types. You can upload new versions and track comments. All content and comments are indexed for search and discovery.
Wikis are a great choice for publishing information. Jam's wiki supports multi-person editing, rich text formatting, tables, embedded images and video, and a complete revision history. When wiki pages change, everyone following the wiki receives an automatic notification.
While microblogging works for quick questions and status updates, sometimes a more structured conversation better suits your objectives. Jam Discussions are designed for a more structured exchange of ideas around a specific topic. Discussions are easily located and accessible through the left side navigation.
Polls are a simple way to "crowd source" or gather feedback from a range of people in your organization. As an integrated part of the social network, Jam polls have much higher rates of participation compared to email polls. Polls are typically made visible across groups or the entire company, allowing others to see when people vote and encourage them to vote as well.
Jam makes it easy for you to share links with your co-workers. When posting a link, Jam will generate a preview of the web page to appear in the activity feed.
To share photos in Jam, simply upload the file from your desktop or your mobile device. You can tag other users at a company event or quickly capture a snapshot of the whiteboard from a meeting to post for others working remotely to view and participate.
When you have something to communicate that is more involved than a few sentences, you can use the Jam blogging tool. The rich text editor allows you to embed images, video and links to enhance your ideas. Integrated with Jam microblogging, it's easy for others to post feedback and comments.
Coordinating activities across the company or in groups can be challenging. Tasks enable you to clearly articulate and assign work with a deadline. Tasks also provides reminders and alerts in the system to help keep everyone on track.
Jam's built-in Chat provides real-time "conference rooms" where users can participate in the conversation anytime. Jam stores chat transcripts for later reference.
