Lark, a digital collaboration suite, has launched its latest product offering, Lark Mail, a modified email experience for enterprises in the Philippines. Breaking down the barrier of information silos by providing more transparent and collaborative communications, Lark Mail will now be seamlessly integrated with Lark’s suite of collaboration tools including Messenger, Video Calling, Docs and Sheets, Cloud Storage, and Calendar.
As one of the most important business tools, email continues to be a siloed form of communication that keeps information away from teams who primarily communicate using digital collaboration platforms. Lark Mail has finally connected email to the other essential tools used in today’s workplace, allowing users to:
- Email a Chat Group:
In the recipients field, users can input the names of not just individual colleagues, but also chat groups to send team emails to.
- Keep Email Organized with Smart Inbox:
Lark Mail automatically surfaces “Priority” emails first so users can see what’s important at a glance.
- Provide Quick Permissions:
When sending a Lark Doc in an email, users can see clearly whether the recipients have access to it or not, and give them the permission to read or edit the Lark Doc with one click.
- Out of Office Reply:
Create a personalized out of office reply to automatically respond to emails you receive when on a business trip or leave.
- Gmail Integration:
Instead of logging into Gmail each day, users can link their Gmail accounts to Lark to enjoy seamless integration between email, messenger and drive.
“Email remains a core component to the workflow of many organizations, but its separation from other collaborative tools such as messenger creates bottlenecks in productivity and makes it hard to stay on the same page,” said Joey Lim, Lark VP of Commercial, Asia. “We strongly believe Lark Mail’s integration of email with Messenger, Video Calling, Docs, Cloud Storage and Calendar will break down these barriers and transform the way email is used within our customers’ organizations.”
In addition to Lark Mail, the company also recently introduced a new feature called Magic Share, which allows participants to edit content within the video call window, and view content being presented at their own pace. Magic Share eliminates the need to have multiple tabs open when working with colleagues on a collaborative document during a video call, and means users no longer have to worry about keeping up with a presenter that goes too fast or too slow. Once a document is shared, teammates can view it at their own pace and co-edit directly from within the video call window, effectively breaking down the wall between visual and written communication. Latecomers to a meeting can now scroll up to see material previously presented without interrupting the flow of the presenter, while presenters no longer have to worry about issues common to traditional screen sharing such as clients or internal stakeholders seeing inappropriate tabs on their computer or irritating notifications.
Lark Mail, along with the rest of Lark’s suite of collaboration tools consisting of 200GB cloud storage, 500GB email storage and unlimited video call minutes, are available free for businesses in the Philippines. Simply visit www.larksuite.com to switch over to Lark Mail from any email services.
