Thursday, 19th February 2015 Login to MyFreePint or create an account be able to star items

Have you ever thought how wonderful it would be to have no emails in your inbox? The legendary "Inbox Zero" status is often discussed but very rarely reached. Whilst this might be a pipedream for many people, one of the ways in which we can reduce the information we receive in our email inboxes is to think about different ways of subscribing to and receiving information. An option for some individuals is to choose to receive information via an activity stream. James Mullan considers the role activity streams have to play and how they can be used effectively in an intranet.

Tuesday, 3rd February 2015 Login to MyFreePint or create an account be able to star items

How often has someone left the organisation you work for and the next day you have a question that they would have been able to answer? Once a week, once a month, less often?

Martin White Eight Steps to Good Management for Visible Information
Tuesday, 3rd February 2015 Login to MyFreePint or create an account be able to star items

The important consideration is that there is a lifecycle and a document may become more, rather than less, valuable in the course of its useful life. The term "document" is a place holder for any creative act. It could represent, for example, a video, an infographic or a presentation. Martin White looks at each element of a typical lifecycle from the viewpoint of making information more visible.
