By uniting users into workgroups for collaboration and projects, all communication and data related to a given project or team is organized in a single place.
You will be able to access all your project data easily by opening the corresponding workgroup.
You can keep track of all project activities & react to any group discussions in real-time.
Invite your clients, partners, outsource help or any other external users to your Bitrix24 workgroup. All workgroup functionality is available for external users, but these third parties are able only to see the workgroups which they are a part of.
Groups have individual permission settings and roles such as moderators, owners, and members. New members are added via invitation.
After starting the service, you can create an unlimited number of workgroups which can be edited, deleted or moved to the archive later.
