New Resource: Quick Start Guide to Collaboration Tools

Wednesday, March 18, 2020

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, among many other things, it’s changing the way we work together at Stanford. For some, that may include telecommuting for the first time.

To help you get comfortable using the tools that will enable you to work more collaboratively anywhere, we’ve created a new kind of resource. With a simplified, easy-to-navigate format, a Quick Start Guide to Collaboration Tools provides high-level answers to your most basic questions about Slack, Zoom, Google Docs, and Jabber Softphone.

Why a new resource?

When it comes to collaboration tools, we have many resources available to us. Although the information is abundant, it can be challenging for new users to quickly find the essential information they need to get up and running.

Questions are welcome

If you’re just getting started with virtual collaboration tools, we think you’ll find plenty of useful information in this online guide. And if you have questions that you don’t see answered, be sure to complete the feedback form to let us know. We may even add the information you’re looking for to the guide so others can benefit, as well.
