This is particularly useful as you can process your inbox with minimal context switching. According to McKinsey, when users switch from one task to another, it really affects productivity.
Therefore, by keeping context switching to a minimum, you increase productivity in your organization. Additionally, sending attachments is a snap as they are sent as links via IBM Connections (a feature that our competitors have copied).
Of course, with the IBM Connections 5.0 release less than a month ago this new version of IBM Connections Mail now fully supports IBM Connections 5.0. Here's the other new capabilities:
- Accept/Decline calendar invites
- Save messages as draft
- Adds support for Domino encrypted mail
- Adds direct access to the Microsoft Outlook Web App
- Adds support for Microsoft Exchange 2013
Here's a demo that was recorded when this originally shipped.
