Collaboration

Introduction

According to Wikipedia:

'Collaboration is the process of two or more people or organizations working together to complete a task or achieve a goal. Collaboration is similar to cooperation'

One of the pillars of Dragon1 is collaboration, work anywhere on any place on any device with a group of people on a specific task or goal.

On Dragon1, people can at the same time and together enter data, improve data quality, handle the workflow of data status, create models, views and visualizations, add comments, issues and decisions to entity data information.

In the Collaboration Application you can create and manage projects, teams and tasks.

Also in the Collaboration Application you can create and manage data lists for 60 preselected Entity Classes. For instance create a list of processes, applications and servers. And next, create relationships between them (thus creating models) and next links these models to visualizations with template.

At the right-hand side of the Data Lists in the Collaboration Application a list of users is shown. By clicking on one of the users you can chat with that persons (sending him or her messages).

On this page you will see how easy it is to create a task or chat with a user.

How to Create and manage Comments

When entering the Collaboration section, the best place to get a quick overview is the Data Dashboard. Using the Data Dashboard one can drill-down at the entity class of interest (e.g. Applications, Processes, Concepts, etc...) and start entering data and creating models.

You can easily invite users to join your account and collaborate.
