NetDocuments introduces ChatLink as a new way to work with Microsoft Teams
NetDocuments now offers ChatLink, an integration that links Microsoft Teams to NetDocuments. NetDocuments offers a secure multi-tenant cloud-based content services and productivity platform for law firms, corporate legal teams, and compliance departments. With the availability of ChatLink, Teams users can now connect channels with NetDocuments workspaces and secure threads.
ChatLink enables users to continue working inside the Microsoft Teams interface while maintaining complete access to NetDocuments workspaces and conversations within ndThread to adhere to compliance and governance rules.
As the legal industry is often faced with content and document governance challenges, ChatLink solves for this by bringing NetDocuments into the Teams experience. Administrators can manually or programmatically associate a channel with an existing NetDocuments matter or project, making documents available in a tab within the channel. Similarly, an embedded view of associated chats in ndThread allows for multiple conversations to happen within a matter while securing them to the matter file.
“The challenges caused by COVID-19 have accelerated the move toward new productivity approaches, and tools like Teams and ndThread are in high demand,” said Dan Hauck, chief product officer at NetDocuments. “Based on our feedback from customers, we accelerated our development of ChatLink, and this solution can be delivered quickly to customers on our platform without the need for scheduled upgrades or downtime.”
The ChatLink application can be installed into Teams by an administrator, where tabs can then be created for each channel. The two tabs include NetDocuments and ndThread.
