What are the messengers

One of differences between corporate messengers from consumer, in addition, of course,positioning, is the ability to conduct multiple discussions even within the same chat without the need to create separate ones. This is convenient when the same project is commented on by employees of different departments, whose work does not overlap at all or almost: marketers, developers, testers, PR people.

If they communicate in one branch, a constructive dialogue will turn into a dump.Employees of one department will be distracted by the messages of colleagues from another, and they will spend corny more time searching for the right comments. And if you force them to create separate chats, then they will not be able to quickly switch between different discussions, if it still turns out to be necessary. Now there is such an opportunity in Yandex Messenger.

Thanks to the emergence of threads, corporate users will be able to have multiple discussions within the same chat by sending your commentson different topics in the appropriate chains, as well as quickly switch between them without falling out of context. The branches themselves are not formed situationally. The chat administrator is responsible for their creation, who is based on the work needs of his subordinates. Therefore, in one project there can be 2 comment threads, in another - 5, and in the third - all 10 and even more.
