Say hello to a more effective administration
For admins juggling the responsibilities of tracking user communication, user statuses, and more, Cliq provides enhanced control over an organization's data. Here's a closer look:
eDiscovery and DRP
Tackle litigation or regulatory inquiries with seamless evidence provisioning and maintain accurate records of your organization's data with eDiscovery and Data Retention Policies.
Audit Logs are your key to swift and precise oversight. Get a snapshot of all activities done by users across chats and channels at a glance, you can dive in for more details if required as well.
Communication tools get their effectiveness from how actively people use them. Admins can measure adoption rates and look at the number of hours spent on different interactions with usage reports. The usage reports will also give admins a clear picture of the organization's interactions, and how everyone uses Cliq. Armed with these insights, admins can refine and enhance communication.
Status configuration across the organization
Oversee status settings for your whole organization by customizing the availability text, setting time limits for each status, mandating activity statuses, and more.
Centralized management for your channels
If you're an organization admin seeking greater control over your channels, the centralized channel management in the admin panel is your solution. You'll gain granular control over every channel within your organization, allowing you to seamlessly perform detailed actions like adding or removing participants, and adjusting roles available to a channel admin, all from a single centralized location.
Here are more additions to calls and meetings
As mentioned earlier, Cliq is always at the forefront of current trends, ensuring it meets the ever-growing demand for seamless and effective communication.
Cliq rooms for hybrid teams
Although room solutions have been available for years, Cliq Rooms sets itself apart by making this feature accessible to everyone. With just an Android TV, you can turn any room into a smart conference room. Cliq Rooms bridges the gap between in-office and remote teams. Employees in the office can meet face-to-face and use a conference room's TV to connect with remote workers who join online.
Enhance virtual gatherings with live events
Host virtual live events for members of your organization seamlessly with the new live events feature in Zoho Cliq. Organizers have full control over the event. For example, they can move presenters onto the stage and manage intermissions with filler media. Moreover, employees can also join live events directly from their Cliq mobile app or the Android TV app, Cliq for TV.
