Groups, Discussion Forums and Project Management

Amy July 8, 2020

Introduction

A lot of magic happens in groups. We bring in people we need, get discussions started and work on projects. It’s serious business.

Where to Find Groups, Discussion Forums and Projects

You can go to “My Profile” and see all your groups, discussions and projects, and start new ones. You can also use the menu on the left (computer/laptop) or the dropdown menu (phone).

What You Can Do in Groups, Discussions and Projects

Effective teams have dedicated individuals who contribute different things to the success of the group. With this feature on CLEANetwork, we’re:

  1. Building teams,
  2. Discussing what needs to be done, and
  3. Building and managing projects that help us meet our goals. You can set up task lists, assign tasks to group members, and all kinds of other great projecty-things.

You can make your groups public or private or by invite only. Therefore all your discussion and projects of your group can be public or private, or even hidden. So if you have an idea you only want to share with certain people and work on projects that you don’t want everyone to know about, you can do that too. Of course you should be careful about what you share online; don’t post anything that can get you in trouble or that could get stolen. Also don’t post anything like intellectual property that you could get a patent for. If you have questions, just ask.

Key to Remember about Groups, Discussions and Projects

There is no time to waste. It’s time for action, and this is where it’s going to happen. Be sure to stay on top of your groups, discussions and projects so that they are always moving forward.
