Communication is everywhere in the workplace, and adequate communication skills are essential in any working environment. Traditional workplace communication involves phone calls, emails, and face-to-face conversations. As mobile technology heralds in a new era of IM, the most common workplace communication style is the exchange of messages. It could be said that IM allows people to have discussions in any virtual meeting room.
However, in Lark, the idea of communication embraces a whole lot more possibilities. As a powerful office suite, Lark offers a diverse range of communication methods, including, but not limited to, private and group chats call and video meetings.
Many new users may wonder: Whats "office suite"? Whats the advantage of suite over non-suite? To answer this, let's use an example: Instead of designing Lark inbox as a mail inbox that holds a pool of messages, we designed it as an information distribution center. Therefore, people can distribute document permissions and create calendar events for all group chat members. By blurring the line between different tools, we allow users to have truly integrated features at hand.
Without further ado, let's see how to master the art of communication with Lark.
