“Whether those are recurring processes that happen on a regular basis, like a weekly update, store opening, or facility inspection, or in the moment updates that might be needed at any time, like a shift handoff, maintenance request, or incident report, Updates makes it easy for people to manage them all in one place. People can use the templates in the Updates app to get started and configure them for a specific business or team needs.”
“Workers are alerted in Teams that they were assigned an update and can quickly review the details of the request. They can easily complete the update, add any images, files, or videos that are needed, and submit it in a chat, channel conversation, or in the Updates app. With this lightweight experience of answering questions with the tap of a button, employees can easily give updates while completing day-to-day tasks. “
“As workers complete their updates, the summary card will reflect those in real time so managers and other viewers can track and act on them. Frontline managers and workers can see a consolidated view of their different updates. Each update type is displayed along with details such as the status, due date, and number of submissions. People can also select a specific submission to see the detailed responses and engage accordingly.”
