Sharing email account? Here’s the best alternative to it

By 25th March 2019 No Comments

Assigning, delegating and sharing tasks is a common way of splitting demands and balancing work for everyone in a team. It can be a little hard to manage without the help of a spreadsheet, extension or even a software. 

What you may not know is that there are many options of apps, extensions and software in the market that cover this issue. Did you know that, according to PWC, project management software increases performance?

Today we will be talking about how people deal with shared emails and a few options of email management apps that are available to try. Let’s check it together, come with us!

How people commonly share emails

So, as we all know, sharing emails to split demands is fairly common in any company. However, there are good practices and ways of doing this.

A widely used way is to share a spreadsheet with the entire team with all the accounts and passwords of every software/email that a companies’ possess. This way, anyone can use the same login and password on their computer to access an account. Does this sound problematic to you? It’s because this is really unsafe.

Sharing the same accounts and passwords is not the safest way to do it, because your account is vulnerable to being hacked, since the account is registered on several different computers. Also, this spreadsheet can accidentally be shared with people from outside of the company. Imagine making all of your companies’ account public? A total disaster. 

Email accounts can be shared, but properly!

Ok, so what is the easiest way of sharing email accounts? With team inboxes. Here at Drag, for example, is very simple to create a team inbox. After installing Drag App extension, all you gotta do is: 

  1. Click in “manage boards”; 
  2. Add board;
  3. And invite your team to the board.

Do you see? Easy peasy. 

Let’s disclose the benefits of a team inbox in the next topic, but basically, through a team inbox, you can share emails that really matter, turn them into tasks to be done and assign people to take care of it.
