One of the really cool things about Office 365 is that Microsoft is always adding new functionality. While Microsoft Office has long offered cloud-based document sharing, GigJam stands out as a unique tool!
GigJam is primarily a collaboration tool that is designed for use in Office 365 environments. It allows users to spontaneously get help from a co-worker. It also makes it very easy for users to redact part of the information they're sharing with other people, which means they can selectively share portions of documents - what needs to be seen - in order to get a job done.
The demo video below shows how the user can just cross out whole paragraphs and leave others for comment or editing. "Show a draft brochure to your designer, but only the text to your copywriter," said Vijay Mital, general manager of the Microsoft's Ambient Computing team.
The GigJam interface also combines a bunch of interesting input methods. Users can choose whether to work entirely with the keyboard and mouse, or interact with Gigs using touch and voice input.
Obviously, there’s no way around it: One user starts a "Gig," and then pulls in information from whatever services they need, like email, Office documents, Salesforce…etc. Likewise, when you want to send somebody information, just open your GigJam, choose that document or email or..., and that information shows up as a card inside GigJam, and is ready for the simple, unique process: Circle, clip and Share!
GigJam is now available on computers, tablets and smart phones. You can download the free GigJam Preview from Microsoft.
