We are excited to announce that our industry ready data exchange tool – MX – has been upgraded with new collaborative features to help you communicate and capture project-critical details when you send and receive files. We’re taking our favourite collaborative features from online life, and adapting them for our own goal: faster, easier and more secure data exchange for modern businesses.
Your projects deserve precision, so we’ve taken a different approach. This is a chat tool with a purpose.[embed]https://youtu.be/otcKGXpyobs[/embed]Every file sent (with Conversations enabled) arrives with a dedicated Conversation window in which the sender and recipients can converse to clarify details such as:
Safety note: For peace of mind, conversations will only activate on a per-transaction basis when enabled by the original sender. Safety messaging reminds users of who will be able to see what.
We’ve all been there – the scrolling and searching through work chat streams to find that comment left by someone who’s on leave. Here’s what we’ve done differently to help you avoid that:
To continue the Conversation beyond a single transaction, you can send a new file in transaction that is linked to the first transaction. Keeping clear boundaries between transactions is important for reviewing past activity to resolve disputes and monitor data security. But don’t worry, MX’s new Linked Transactions feature complements Conversations so you still get flexible collaboration. Linked Transactions allow you to join related transfers together. Users can follow the links between closely related data packages and Conversations, and see the connections which create the bigger picture.
We didn’t stop at Send and Receive. Learn how forwarding and external user creation let you exchange data flexibly with your whole supply chain. Find out more
