Instead of attaching a document to an email......attach an email address to a document.
- Day 1: I mail colleagues A, B, C, & D with the document (version 1)asking them to review it and provide feedback.
- Day 2: Person A has a comment, so I update the document and re-send (version 2). Later that day, B & C mail me with comments on version 1!
- Day 3: D asks me to re-send the mail with version 2 attached as they have accidentally deleted it!
Frustrating? - Collaboration is not facilitated by simply using email with attached documents. As the video points out, why should we ever have a situation where there are 4 copies stored of the same document?
