You can customize your workspaces to include graphics and text elements that communicate your team’s or your organization’s brand to others.

Team and workforce productivity

Vibe allows you to easily work with mixed teams and include outside workers. Because guest and external users are free to add to Vibe, you can include contractors, temporary workers, and others outside your organization in any of your teams at any time.

Quickly staff up with temporary employees, work collaboratively with other organizations, or give guest access to visiting or specialty workers simply by adding them to the Vibe system. Vibe sends them an email, they join, and you can get started working together immediately.

Relevance dashboard

The dashboard consolidates the most important and relevant information you need into a single view. This makes it easy to track your teams and projects, immediately letting you know what's new, summarizing your tasks and calendar, and letting you stay informed about everything of interest that is going on in your organization and teams.

Folders

Folders make it easy to store and manage all of your content. They can contain documents, files, wikis, discussions, calendars, tasks, milestones, blogs, surveys, photos, and other content. You can also create accessory folders that can display data from external sources, such as e-mail, databases, and productivity applications.

Content indexing

Vibe indexes all content in a single easy-to-use search index, making it easy to find the relevant knowledge and resources that team members need to be efficient and productive.

With the ability to tag data as it's created, your team members can quickly and dynamically “resurface” relevant information and ideas as needed.

The custom forms and workflow capabilities in Vibe let you add formal structure and automated processes to the management of all your content, including the ability to manage content posted in wikis, discussion forums, and landing pages.

Identity and access controls

Built-in identity and security controls allow you to confidently share your valuable legacy of insights and knowledge with authorized team members.

Better document lifecycle control

Vibe gives you greater control of your documents' lifecycles by providing a central workspace for document sharing, collaborating, reviewing, and revising.

Document commenting

You can easily comment on documents so others can quickly see the comment without having to search for it.

Automatic notification

You and your team members can be automatically notified every time a user posts or updates a file in the team workspace.

Check-in/check-out

Document indexing

Vibe indexes all stored documents in a single easy-to-use search index, eliminating time spent hunting for the right file.

Major/minor versions

Security (access controls)

Users and organizations can rest assured that their content is completely secure. They can set access rights for individuals or groups with just a few clicks. This means that if someone searches for a document but doesn't have rights to view it, it won't even appear in their search results.

Built-in workflows

Built-in workflow capabilities help you automate, streamline, and enhance processes to save time, eliminate errors, and improve the overall efficiency of your teams and users.

Workflow library

Vibe makes it easy to build and customize powerful workflows, but we also provide a growing library of downloadable workflows and entry forms so that your workflow creation doesn't have to begin from scratch.

Workflow dashboard

You and your teams can monitor and manage your workflows through custom workflow dashboards. Dashboards give authorized team members or managers a summary view of workflow status.
