Email to intranet
The self-hosted edition of Bitrix24 allows you to feed email messages directly into the activity stream. All you need to do is to select a workgroup where you want to enable email-to-intranet posting, specify the email address, and Bitrix24's Send&Save system will take care of the rest.
How often do your employees make reports? You can easily set up reporting on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Bitrix24 reminds employees to send reports, and the contents of daily planner are helpfully included and can be edited before sending the final report. Plans for the next reporting period can also be submitted through this form.
The work report is evaluated by a supervisor and commentary can be added. All work reports of a given employee, department, or the whole company can be viewed with their evaluations and efficiency ratings.
Self Service and Workflow Automation
HR documents and forms are available in a single location, preventing unnecessary trips to HR or the accounting office. Business processes in Bitrix24 let you automate workflows, such as Leave Approvals, Business Trips, General Requests (Internal Helpdesk), Purchase Requests and Expense Reports.
These are included in the Activity Stream, don’t require setup and are available free of charge. You can modify them, if necessary, or create custom workflows from scratch using visual Business Process designer. Workflows developed by Bitrix24 partners can also be installed from the Marketplace.
Employees only see that information which they are permitted to see. Permissions can be granted to company departments, workgroups, individual users, or to users assigned to pre-defined roles (moderators, group owners, observers, responsible persons, etc.).
Bitrix 24 lets you show or hide workgroups, documents, CRM contacts, and practically any other item in the system. Access permissions also work in search; that is, search results to which a given user does not have access will not show up in the search suggestions or results.
Collaboration in the Extranet
Bitrix24 allows collaborative work not only with coworkers, but also with external users – partners, clients, contractors, etc. Inviting external users is as easy as inviting them to a workgroup, and after they have joined, these third party users are visible in a separate list, so that you can always be aware of who is working in the Extranet.
