Communication and Collaboration in a Virtual World

Bridge launches Group Agendas feature

When COVID-19 hit the US in the spring of 2020, to say our world turned upside down is an understatement. Every aspect of our personal and professional lives were changed. For those of us fortunate enough to continue working, a lot of time was spent adjusting to new ways of getting work done. Processes changed overnight, meetings went virtual, “working together” went from sitting in the same room problem-solving, to now utilizing tools and meetings in completely different ways.

A few months into all of those adjustments, the new way of working feels more “normal”, or at least, slightly more familiar. One of the things I miss the most, however, is the in-person collaboration. I’m sure I’m not alone in this feeling, but for me personally, I always left a project planning session or an in-person team meeting feeling totally aligned and understanding what the next steps were. I’ve found that at times, it can be hard to get as strong of a sense of alignment when collaborating virtually. I’m willing to bet there are others out there struggling with the same thing, craving more opportunities for deliberate communication, stronger connection, and clear alignment.

At Bridge, we saw this challenge first-hand, and have been hard at work developing a new feature that is designed to make team collaboration easier. Today, we are excited to announce that Group Agendas have been added to Performance Management with Bridge. 

Bridge Group Agendas for Performance Management

Group agendas are a shared agenda that can be created by anyone and allows any user on the agenda to communicate and improve alignment with one another. Users can add talking points, tasks, and create their own sections to organize their thoughts, delivering a flexible and open-ended experience. 

Our end goal with Group Agendas was to create the ability for teams to communicate, collaborate, and coordinate better within Bridge. We know that because of COVID-19, the ways in which teams work together have been changed forever. We’re hoping that Group Agendas can be used to help foster stronger connections and communications in teams, both in-person and virtually.
