Chatter Collaboration

    Chatter is a great way of sharing comments, ideas, files, and other information. Inspire Planner has incorporated the Chatter feed within a project plan, enabling one to communicate freely and easily with project participants, who can “follow” both people and documents to collaborate on projects and tasks. Like Facebook and LinkedIn, Chatter allows users to manage their feeds and control how notifications are received.

    This opens the Chatter window for the particular task as shown below. Click the +Follow option to get updates on the task in your Chatter feed.
