Collaborate in Context with Bookmarks, Message Reply and In-Room Search
Traditional work communication tools can be clunky, confusing, and contextless. Nothing is worse than searching an interminable email chain or being unable to figure out which attachment you sent to whom!
At Symphony, we’re working to make communication and collaboration at work easier and more efficient, which is why we’ve come out with a new software update that includes a number of productivity boosting features such as Bookmarks, Message Reply and In-Room Search.
Here’s how they work:Save important messages with bookmarks
To help you keep track of important messages or tasks, you can click on a message to bookmark and Symphony will save it within the “Bookmark manager”. Bookmarks are perfect for reminders, research or simple to-do lists. You also can add notes, sort bookmarks, or search for content by keyword or tag. Once you’re done with a task or no longer need the reminder, you can remove any bookmark with just one click.
A few ways that bookmarks can be immediately useful in your organization include:
Communicate in context with direct message replies

Click the search icon at the top right of a chat or room and type any keyword to search and view a list of all hits. Once you find the right message, click “go here” and Symphony will take you right to the relevant conversations.
