Release 204 of the Bipsync Research Management System (RMS) is now available. We’re excited to announce a major new integration along with a raft of smaller improvements.
New Integration: Microsoft Teams
Many of our clients use Microsoft Teams to improve their ability to communicate, especially in recent years as remote and hybrid working has become more commonplace. As a result, they’re increasingly performing key elements of their research workflow within Teams, and we recognised the utility of having Bipsync integrate effortlessly with Teams in the same way that we do with Slack, a similar productivity tool.
This release introduces the ability to post research summaries directly from Bipsync in to Teams, to spark and contextualise discussion around research content. Replies within Teams are synced back to Bipsync as comments on the original research document. The feedback we received from beta-testing clients indicated that this facility has improved engagement with research within Bipsync through increased exposure.
