What are Discussion Tools?

Discussion forums allow team members to have more in-depth responses and conversations. Most discussion forums in project management software are contextualized within the work itself, ensuring employees can give and receive direct feedback on the task they are working on. Users can also include team members in a discussion by using the @ symbol.

Benefits of Discussion Tools

  • Ensuring employees stay on topic with their work
  • Easier file-sharing and file storage
  • Encourages detailed feedback and discussion
  • Centralizes conversations surrounding work to a single platform
  • Comments left on a work item are threaded and easily located
