A safe place to store data, share insights,
grow knowledge & collaborate!

Find out how you can collaborate on and share your content.

VNCchannels is your place to store data, to search and retrieve information and to generate knowledge – collaboratively!

Bring your community together and collaborate with your team productively. Share ideas, discuss animatedly, come to conclusions, reach decisions and move forward with a common purpose. This is how innovation happens!

Definition: A Channel is a container for various Topics enabling the management of users, access, permissions and subscriptions. A Topic is a post in a Channel with varying content, which can be collaborated and commented upon by its members according to their permissions.

Create either public Channels to include everyone in the workspace or private Channels for selected members only to enable private conversations in smaller groups. Invite additional members as moderators or participants whenever you like. All your content including text, files, images, videos and more finds its place in persistent Channels organized by topics and tags.

Create public or private Topics in your Channels depending on your requirements.

Subscribe to Channels or Topics and pin important Channels to structure the information you’d like to see first.

Comment on all the Topics you are invited to with text comments (with rich text format) including images, files, videos, and more.

“Smart link” information to create a web of information and aggregate knowledge within Channels or Topics. These “smart links” can also be used to link to other VNClagoon components like chat messages from VNCtalk, emails from VNCmail, tasks from VNCtask or tickets from VNCproject.

“Power Search” the complete content to retrieve exactly the information you need. Slice and dice all information you search via our extremely powerful VNCindex.

VNCchannels is a product of the VNClagoon enterprise software suite – for Secure, Best in Class, Seamless Communication and Collaboration.
