We’ve all been there: you have a team meeting with lots of participation and ideas, everything seems to be going great, but in the end no decisions are reached and you feel defeated by the experience.
The problem is that, in many cases, those team meetings are the main points of collaboration and communication, and they don’t effectively take into account all of the new ideas and shifts that may have happened between meetings, in the real world. Now, with Evernote and SAP StreamWork, getting your team from idea to decision is way easier.
The video above features an earlier version of StreamWork called 12Sprints.
SAP StreamWork brings collected content together to allow teams to brainstorm, collaborate and make decisions. Since ideas and inspiration can occur at any time, SAP turned to Evernote as the go-to capturing tool. Using the Evernote API, SAP StreamWork was able to integrate Evernote into their application, allowing users to take notes, record audio memos, and clip web pages in Evernote, then view all of their notes within the StreamWork interface.
We’re also excited about this integration because it’s our first business-focused partnership, and a pretty amazing one at that. We created Evernote as a tool for individuals looking to remember important aspects of their lives. Since our launch, we’ve received countless requests for a business-oriented solutions. Here’s the first, with many more to come.
When you’re working on an exciting project, you never stop thinking about it. At the office, at the store, at the gym, we’re still mulling over ways to make the project better. Then, in a flash, an idea hits you. In the past, this has been an incredibly stressful moment, because you knew there was a 95% chance that you would forget the idea. Not anymore. Just grab your phone and make a text note or audio memo in Evernote. Thanks to the integration, that note will now be available in StreamWork waiting to be shared with your teammates.
How it works
Once in StreamWork, click to add a Collection, then add an item and select Evernote. You’ll be asked to sign into your Evernote account. From there, you can choose a notebook, browse your notes, then add them to your project. Once in the project, your teammates can view the notes, make comments, and use them in the decision-making process. Very slick.
