Practical tips and recommendations
Docs, Presentations and Spreadsheets are great for sharing and collaboration, e.g. editing content together, filling out a table when several people are involved in collecting the information, etc.
Sites are quick and easy to build, because they give you a template and allow a number of custom features (like your own logo); pre-built pages and gadgets (e.g. including a YouTube video is super easy!) that match most of your needs to share and publish information with very low effort. What's more, Sites function like wikis, so you can share them with collaborators who have the permission to create pages, edit and update content, etc. Comments and attachments can be enabled for each page.
Calendars can be private, shared with a small group of people or made public access. Regardless of what calendar software other may have on their computer, you can maintain an online calendar and decide who you want to grant access to. Synchronization with Outlook Calendar is possible by installing a software program that will, however, keep only your primary calendar at cgxchange.org and your default Outlook calendar synchronized.
Mail is based on Gmail (you may have recognised it if you have a Gmail account). It is enabled on CGX 2.0 and serves the purposes of
1. receiving notifications of shared files and sites;
2. acting as your ID on cgxchange.org.
It does NOT replace or competes with your cgiar.org email account.
