What’s the difference between a direct chat, group chat and a workspace?
- A direct chat is a conversation between you and one other person.
- A group chat is a conversation between you and a group of people. Your messages will be visible to all the members of this chat.
- A workspace is similar to a group chat but you can create discussion “topics” within your workspace, similar to a forum. This will help you keep conversations categorized and on topic. All members within the workspace can add a new topic, however, only the topic creator can edit the title or delete the topic.
How many workspaces can I create?
You can create an unlimited number of workspaces to manage projects or teams.
What are the types of e-forms available in Forms?
The type of forms include request forms, approval forms, reimbursement forms and acknowledgement forms, covering a wide variety of business needs. You can also customize your own forms via the Admin Panel.
How can I use Forms?
Full details are provided in Get Started.
What is the purpose of Broadcast?
Broadcast allows you to send announcements to either all employees or to specific departments and teams. Our read receipts allow administrators to see who has read the message and who hasn't, so that those who have not seen the Broadcast can be contacted separately if needed.
How can I tell if someone has read my message?
Once someone has read your message it will appear as “read by 1” and in groups it will appear as “read by number of members in group”.
How does Eko store my data?
Eko stores all the data in the cloud, so customers never have to worry about losing their important conversations. If you lose your conversations on a consumer app, it doesn’t matter; but imagine if everytime you switch devices, you lose all of your work chats and workspaces. We are aimed at maintaining data retention requirements for companies of all sizes.
