G Suite enterprise users can seamlessly collaborate on innovation activities while working in popular tools like Gmail, GDrive, GDocs and GSheets

Online PR News – 04-September-2020 – Wilmington – Wilmington, Delaware — Planbox, the top-ranking agile innovation management platform provider, today announced its integration with Google’s suite of cloud computing, productivity and collaboration tools. This integration makes it easy for organizations to increase company wide engagement across all innovation campaigns directly via Google Mail, Calendar, Drive, Docs and Sheets, among other G Suite applications.

“Embedding innovation into G Suite eliminates collaboration silos by providing much greater visibility into all of your organization’s innovation campaigns, activities and success stories,” said Aleksandra Gutsman, Innovation Solutions Consultant at Planbox.

G Suite users can easily participate in innovation activities without having to leave the office apps they use everyday, for example:

After connecting Planbox with Gmail, ideas are created automatically based on the email content the moment an email is sent to a designated account; you can also set up alerts to create an idea from an email when certain keywords or phrases appear in an email’s subject or body.

After connecting Planbox with Google Calendar, reminders are automatically created for your challenge’s or innovation event’s start and end dates and any other key milestones and reminders you have set up in Planbox.

After connecting Planbox with Google Drive, attach new documents and add a comment to an idea when a new file is added to a designated G Drive folder.

After connecting Planbox with Google Docs, append text to an existing document from new ideas or comments in Planbox.

After connecting Planbox with Google Sheets, create spreadsheet rows from new or updated ideas or comments in Planbox.

After connecting Planbox with Google Slides, create presentations from new ideas in Planbox.

Planbox also integrates with Google Translate, which is seamlessly embedded in the agile innovation management solution, effectively eliminating any language barrier your organization may have with its various stakeholders located in different regions. “This integration greatly improves accessibility for your innovation ecosystem as all content is translated automatically and in real-time based on the user’s preferred language. “Google Translate makes instant collaboration across geographies an effortless task for organizations looking to make their innovation initiatives more diverse and inclusive to global communities,” said Gutsman.
