The abrupt shift to working from home has required employers and employees alike to learn how to work efficiently while remaining flexible. Time management skills, discipline, and focus are more essential than ever in order to stay productive even when you’re not in an office setting.
Leaders need to revisit strategies to keep employees motivated and connected while physically apart, while businesses need to find tools that can make remote work easier for everyone. One such tool is Lark, which offers fully integrated features and multiple collaboration tools in one platform.
Get work done in one platform
With Lark Messenger, you can easily check up on the members of your team any time during the work day. From here, anyone can launch an audio or video call for discussions with a single colleague or a group, by simply clicking on the camera icon right in the chat window. This helps save time, since there is no need to switch to a different app or create a whole new group for the meeting.
Got a large team? Lark’s video call feature is ideal for town halls and company-wide presentations. Lark offers unlimited video call minutes, and can accommodate up to 100 participants in a single call.
During video calls, sharing a screen or a document helps ensure that the entire team is, virtually, on the same page, and able to follow along with the presenter’s discussion. Within the video call window, team members can simultaneously edit a shared document while the call is in progress, to make notes and necessary revisions, insert action points, or enumerate next steps.
Meanwhile, in Lark Docs, remote workers can open, read, and add comments to documents and sheets. When real-time feedback is needed, colleagues can tag one another using the @ sign. With this virtual nudge, a message is sent to each tagged team member through chat, notifying them that their attention is needed, and identifying the exact section of the document they need to work on.
Also integrated within Lark Chat and Lark Docs is Lark Calendar. Here, events are created by simply clicking the plus sign. Within each event, a chat group may be launched even before the meeting takes place, in case there is a need for introductions or pre-meeting huddles. This way, once the meeting begins, everyone can get right to the topic at hand.
Lark also has a special smart search feature that enables team members to quickly and easily find contacts, chats, calendar events, docs, and email messages using a single search toolbar. It also has a real-time translator feature with over 300 languages available for clear and efficient cross-cultural communication.
All work materials are stored in the cloud for easy access anytime, anywhere. Lark protects the privacy of its users through an AWS certification, which complies with the strictest rules regarding cloud computing. All of these tools and special features are completely free on Lark.
