In this monthly customer webinar, we chat about collaboration, answer your questions and highlight some things you may not know about using Central Desktop SocialBridge®.

This month's topic: task management
Whether you're trying to remember a single to-do or burning the midnight oil on a million-dollar project, SocialBridge can handle your task-management needs. See how to plan, create, refine and manage projects with SocialBridge. Instead of simple "how tos," we'll focus on project-management best practices:

- When to create a new workspace for a project and when to manage the project in an existing workspace.
- How to create repeatable project templates
- What the relationship is between projects and reporting using our platform.
