DeskAway Launches Social Project Management & Collaboration Features

Mumbai, India (PressExposure) December 16, 2008 -- My Account & Profile : The “Services” link is renamed to “My Account”. You will be able to update your profile, upload a profile photo and talk a little about yourself. After all, if you are working in a team, it would be cool to let others know a little about yourself, what skills you possess and what have you done in the past.

Personalization - Profile Photo : Personalize your DeskAway experience by uploading a 50px image of yourself. Anytime you want, you can remove the picture. Your profile information will also be shown to your project members from the Project Overview page. In addition, your profile picture will be displayed next to all your comments. When working in distributed teams, its always good to see who you are replying and commenting to.

Twitter-style 'What are you working on?' : Why not let your project members know what you are doing? e.g. “Taking a break, going for a quick lunch” or “Working on Ajax development, anyone have open source scripts ready?”. You can set your message from the “What you are working on” link at the top of the page or from the Project Overview page. Everyone in your project team will be allowed to see your message. Future developments of this feature will allow team members to reply to updates and even subscribe to a RSS feed.

There are more social features planned for the coming months. "At DeskAway, we are striving to create an online service that is not only simple and powerful to use but also facilitates social collaboration." said Sahil Parikh, Founder & CEO of DeskAway.
