Monday.com launches workdocs, raising collaborative documents to a new level
Monday.com Ltd., a project management software startup, today announced the launch of monday workdocs, a new capability for its software suite that enables organizations to collaborate within documents.
Monday.com provides what it calls a work operating system, or Work OS, which organizations can use to build their own setup to manage every aspect of their work to facilitate collaboration within teams.
Now teams can bring the platform’s thoroughly customizable project management integrations directly into documents in real time and lag-free no matter how many people are editing the document. That allows customers to share their work, ideas and data in an unstructured way while connecting to the rest of Work OS.
“We know that work for teams can start in all different kinds of ways,” said Tal Haramati, tech lead of Monday.com. “It can be something as structured as a board, or as collaborative as a brainstorm.”
Once a document is launched, multiple collaborators all have access to an endless blank canvas to begin typing and manage work. Unlike more traditional collaborative word processors such as Google Docs that focus only on the words, workdocs integrates the entirety of Monday.com’s ecosystem, including chats, dashboards, real-time charts, boards and other collaboration features.
That means that teams can use workdocs documents as starting points for collaboration, connect them to other documents, create (and resolve) action items, ping other team members and embed dashboards.
In addition, workdocs updates automatically when integrated third-party widgets’ source data change in real time. This means that collaborators can watch data flow in as they’re working, without the need to worry about refreshing or re-uploading the document.
“Workdocs is the next natural step for empowering actionable teamwork through Work OS,” said Haramati. “With workdocs, teams of any size have a blank canvas to get their ideas going and turn those words into action. Now, document collaboration has the power to set work into motion and keep teams moving forward.”
