Microsoft today announced two new major capabilities for GigJam preview. They have expanded support for new interaction styles and content types. First, they have now added the ability to share slices of images, documents and live line-of-business information with people who aren’t online at the time of sending and expire that information in 24 hours. Second, they have added the ability to redact content from images, PDFs or slides, ensuring that an object in a picture, a text block or a particular bullet doesn’t go over to the recipient.
Imagine you need to get input from a new supplier on part of a proposal, but they are in an all-day meeting. With GigJam, just summon the proposal and the opportunity information from your CRM system, redact the budget details they don’t need to see, and send it over to “view for 24 hours.” The recipient can come back later to review and annotate the information. Of course, if you both happen to be online together, you can let them edit the record directly on your behalf.
