What is Chatter?
Salesforce Chatter is the leading enterprise "social network" of the business world. It enables real-time collaboration between colleagues
You can stay updated on your accounts, your opportunities and what your colleagues are doing. Chatter enables companies to connect and share information securely and in real time. Goodbye Silos!
What you write on Chatter is totally up to you - but remember, it is public which means anyone in the organisation can choose to follow your posts.
Get to know your colleagues, see how influential they are, and see if they’re online right now. Find and follow peers and experts to expand your network, discover new and useful information, share your expertise, and increase productivity.
Monitor the people, groups, and projects that matter most to you in one spot. With real-time feeds, your teams will work together on fast-moving issues such as sales pursuits, customer projects, and marketing campaigns. All with the aim of reducing email traffic.
#'s & @
Full social media functionality within Chatter. Chatter will
suggest Topics so you don't have to. All users can use the # to associate their post to a topic. Any user can use # to add a topic to a post giving all users a view of highest trending topics. Use the @ to draw a Chatter users attention to a particular post.
Groups help your teams get organized, share information, collaborate on documents, and work more productively to get things done. Set up private groups so you can work privately on sensitive projects with specific colleagues or public groups for information that's relevant to the whole company. Just remember that system admins can see even private group content!
