Yakabox has everything you need to get real work done right out of the box.
Know what you know at a glance. Follow people, teams, tags, folders, applications, most anything - to see one stream with all the relevant activity from your organization as it happens . Including stuff you didn't even know existed. Use the Matter Meter™ to refine your scope - so you can look at all the stuff that matters, or quickly narrow down to only what matters most. Trending topics let you quickly gauge what's hot right now in your universe. Click on anything to open the panel viewer , learn more, and/or take action.
Stay aware. Share knowledge. Take action. See something relevant? Click on it to learn more. The panel viewer shows you a summary . Take action right in place - add comments , start a conversation, edit the object, explore SeeAlso for related content, complete workflow actions, and more . Others will get activity alerts on your actions to keep the knowledge flowing . And of course, everything's indexed so you can readily find it in search.
Don't know where it is? Find it quick. There's nothing special to configure. Simply enter some keywords and you are searching the entire repository. IC-grade, object level security ensures you only get results you are allowed to see. Use filters on tags, teams, date ranges, folders, content types, applications, and more to quickly narrow your search. Explore results just like you would in Activity Viewer - click on anything to open the panel viewer , learn more, and/or take action.
Keep it together. Put an event on the calendar, and SeeAlso the power points, the blog of planning discussions, the resulting tasks, and background documents . Or find a candidate's resume, and discover SeeAlso's to the interview results, a blog with reference discussions, and the salary discussions that only you and the CFO can see. Discover the SeeAlsos in activity alerts or search results ,and add more if you like .
Share with confidence. Manage access on any object - a single document, blog entry, event, application resource, conversation, anything! Use team and container defaults to cover "normal" cases. Restrict by credentials like classifications, compartments, ECIs, or dissemination controls. Or restrict by team membership or identity. Or both. (For our Intelligence Community customers, validation of the full CAPCO set is embedded.)Integrate with existing infrastructure - like credential or directory systems and PKI. But don't worry about where you publish it - because people only see it if they are allowed to, no matter where they are looking.
Roadblocks and Tasks
What's done? What isn't? What's next? Assign, manage and view to-dos with due dates and reminders for yourself and your team. To emphasize priorities, designate them as roadblocks . Reassign work to accommodate changes in personnel or priorities. Assign new tasks or subtasks when previous items are completed. Group tasks by project, deadline, subject, or any category you choose, and track progress at a glance .
Users and Teams
Find people, skills and expertise. Now it's easy to locate co-workers with specialized skills, even among thousands of employees. Search and filter your talent search by name, department, skill set, experience, special interests. Integrate with existing personnel directories or management systems. Easily create new teams and roles around organizations, missions, working groups, skill areas … or all of the them.
Easily find, share, use and manage your core knowledge assets. Is this the latest version? Who's the author? Who else is interested in this topic? It's all right here, along with SeeAlsos to associated content and expertise that make the document even more useful. Drill down, branch out, check in/check out, solicit or add comments with a couple of clicks. Not sure which folder to use? No problem, put it in several with no worries over version control (it's the same document!). Use global folders, create and manage your own, or both. Track critical content with read-by reports and audit trails.
Blogs and microblogs
Save that thought. Share ideas, insights, images and lessons learned in a one-time blog or an ongoing conversation. Update your status to keep teammates in the loop or browse the history to generate your weekly report. Capture the gist of phone calls or meetings, then SeeAlso to related documents or applications. Pass information between shifts, working groups, or transition teams.
Manage team, project, or organizational events just like everything else. Create individual, team, and/or project calendars and view any or all at once. See your personal itinerary and sync with your desktop and your phone. Send meeting invitations embedded with "see also" links to the agenda, background reading, spreadsheets and any other relevant items (then check the log to see who actually opens them!).
Harness collective wisdom.Use existing tags or add your own to extend the folksonomy. Search, filter and follow by tags. Browse by tag clouds to discover related content. See who's using what tags to gauge related interests and make new connections.
