Integration of Chatter and Basecamp 2

Chatter

WhatsApp, Snapchat and Instagram are all being used for communication in the modern workplace. As well as these, another application is being used for internal communications, this is called ‘Chatter’. This was created by Salesforce itself as a way to help customers communicate with each other. This can be done through it’s own features or through a third party app.

Salesforce has been very generous in the amount of information they have put on their website regarding this topic. One of the most useful things on there is an infographic showing how the application works and what it can be used for.

The infographic says that Chatter is “a way for your employees to share ideas, voice their opinions, ask questions and get answers from other employees and the company.” It also says that “Your employees can give customer updates, create ppls to cplect feedback, share great content and more. Because Chatter is integrated into Salesforce, you can respond directly from your Salesforce records.” (Salesforce. These two sentences sum up what Chatter is in general, but it doesn’t say anything about the benefits or use cases of it. I will discuss this further in the body section of my article.

Basecamp 2

This is a web based project management application aimed at companies who are looking for software that can help them manage their projects and work. It includes features such as task management, file sharing and time tracking. Basecamp is also integrated with other applications such as Slack and Google Drive (Salesforce.

Another thing I found interesting was that it was ranked number 18 on the list of top 100 small business apps (Business Cloud News. This tells us that Basecamp 2 is one of the best project management software available today.

  • the relationship between Chatter and Basecamp 2
  • These two applications are integrated into each other in the sense that there is an integration point between the two. The link can be found under the applications section of salesforce.com (Salesforce. As well as integration, there are some shared features such as notifications between the two. In Chatter there is a ‘basecamp notification’ page which shows notifications from people working on projects (Salesforce. This means that salesforce users can receive notifications when a certain event occurs, such as someone commenting on a certain post or updating a salesforce record. Notifications are also supported in Basecamp 2 and can be set up to tell you when someone has updated a project or created a new one (Basecamp. This means that if you already use both of these applications they will work together seamlessly but if you don’t then you might want to consider using them together because of this feature.

    So now we have looked at what Chatter and Basecamp 2 are separately I will now look at why you should use them together and what benefit this would have for your organisation.

    Integration of Chatter and Basecamp 2

    If you already use Chatter and Basecamp 2 then there are multiple benefits to having them integrated. For example, in basecamp 2 there is a ‘chatter status’ cpumn which shows what salesforce users are doing in both salesforce and basecamp (Salesforce. This means that you can see what people are doing in both websites at any time so you can easily see what project they are working on currently. There is no need to go to basecamp or salesforce to check what someone else is doing if you can just go here instead! This makes life easier for everyone invpved and reduces the amount of time spent trying to find out what someone else is up to. Another benefit of this integration is if you have a salesforce user logged in to basecamp it will bring up his/her name in the top right corner (Salesforce. This means that if any of your team members have salesforce logged in to basecamp then you will be able to know who it is straight away, reducing the chance of miscommunication due to lack of knowledge of who is talking (Salesforce. For example if John talks to Jane on basecamp but Jane has logged in to salesforce while she is on basecamp she may not realise that it’s not Jane who has replied back instead it could be anyone logged into salesforce who has replied back. If she had known that John was logged onto basecamp she would have known to wait until John replies back rather than replying back herself, resulting in less miscommunication happening between people as they would have known who they were speaking to at all times. I think these two benefits are just reasons why everyone should be using these two systems together but I will discuss more reasons later on in this section.

    Benefits of Integration of Chatter and Basecamp 2

    There are multiple benefits of using both chatter and basecamp together but I will only talk about three main benefits in this section as I feel these are the most important ones. The first one could potentially be seen as a disadvantage but I actually think it’s quite positive! Which is that it requires more time to become familiar with both systems but I think this isn’t a bad thing! When people are familiar with something they are more productive with it because they know how it works so they can get things done quicker (Tech Crunch. So I think integrating these two systems together helps people become more familiar with it meaning that people can spend less time learning how to use them together because they already know how to use each one separately! The second benefit I will talk about is that it saves time because you have less switching between pages to do stuff! Although this could be seen as another disadvantage because if you have lots of salesforce users working on projects then the chatter status page could get messy due to notifications from all over the place appearing on there (Salesforce. To counter this we could just limit the amount of notifications shown per page so only 3 notifications appear per page instead of 15 or something like that (Salesforce. This would stop clutter appearing on the page where all 15 notifications are displayed making it easier for users to read them! The third benefit I will talk about is that it helps people communicate better because they can keep track of each other easier! For example if someone is speaking to you via basecamp then they can see what you are doing at the same time so they don’t need to wait around for you to reply back but they can carry on with their work instead! This means that they don’t have to wait around for you until you reply back so they don’t miss out on anything important! Overall I think these three main benefits speak for themselves so I don’t really need to say anything else about them! Although I think that the third benefit deserves a bit more attention because if something goes wrong with a project then if you know who you need to speak too then there won’t be any delays between someone reading your email and them replying back, meaning problems get respved faster! People can carry on with work without missing out on anything important! Overall I think these two benefits outweigh any disadvantages there could possibly be so therefore I feel that everyone should integrate these two systems together!

    Overall, I feel that everyone should integrate Chatter and Basecamp 2 together because they make life easier! If you already use both then feel free to ignore this post completely! If not then I would recommend trying these two applications out or even integrating them together because they make life easier! These two applications might seem sub-par compared to whatsapp or facebook messenger but trust me when I say that these two applications are absputely amazing when used together! You won’t regret using them together!
