How easy is it to communicate with social networks like Facebook? There is little question that the wild popularity of social networks comes from the fact that they solve a basic problem – ease of communication – in a way that is superior to previous options. Imagine putting the power of enterprise social networking into your company’s daily operations! Bitrix24 provides tools for task management, document sharing, and time tracking integrated into just this type of social interface for maximum efficiency of communications and work. Use Bitrix24 in your office, or anywhere you like with the free mobile app! Fully customizable self hosted editions of Bitrix24 with source code access are available.
The Activity Stream is a unified, interactive update feed where all the changes and new additions to the intranet can be seen. The Activity Stream covers all production, social, and mixed-function sections of the intranet. Each employee can stay aware of what is going on, contribute to discussions, and, importantly, choose what types of updates to display, because the Activity Stream can be personalized by each user. Bitrix24’s Activity Stream provides users with real time updates, smart following, notification settings, and company-wide announcements. You can schedule events, attach files, receive immediate feedback from your colleagues – all done inside your personalized Activity Stream.
Aside from being personalized, the Activity Stream is interactive. Comments can be directly from the main interface, the task and photograph viewer can be brought up without additional navigation, and items can be ‘liked’. Liking content shows the opinions of coworkers and also influences search results, as liked content is shown with priority in search results. In this way, useful and popular content remains easy to find.
Conversations are an easy way to start collaboration on a task or a document. When starting a new conversation in the Activity Stream, you can also attach a document or an image. You can start a private conversation with one or many colleagues, adding additional participants at any time. Private messages can also be sent through the Instant Messenger.
The photo gallery gives users complete control over photo albums. The company can have any number of photo albums, and each user and workgroup can, as well. Upload files quickly with the convenient bulk loader, like photos, and add comments. The photo gallery is tightly integrated with the Activity Stream, where thumbnails of new photos automatically appear and can be ‘liked’, viewed, and commented on. The photo viewer appears ‘above’ the Activity Stream without navigation.
Badges are a great motivational tool! Use it to show your appreciation towards your colleagues. Supervisors and management can give ‘awards’ visible to all or part of the company, or simply individually. These badges show up in the Activity Stream and in the profile of the user.
Don’t miss important announcements! If you want to make sure that everyone sees an important announcement, click the Announcement message type in the Activity Stream. Announcements are shown in the light yellow block in the top right corner of the main page. Announcements remain visible to users until they mark them as read.
Connect your intranet with your profile in social networks and services and you’ll be able to authorize on Bitrix24 via those accounts, use the #b24 hashtag to place Twitter tweets into your intranet’s Activity Stream, and post clock-in information and number of completed tasks onto Facebook or Twitter.
Standard workflows (Leave Requests, Business Trips, Expenses, Purchases, General Requests) are included Bitrix24 Standard and Professional plans. Any time your employees need to ask for leave, submit expenses, request technical assistance or put a purchase request in, they can do it via Activity Stream. All workflow updates will be posted to Activity Stream as well.
Not everyone gets "social" yet. That's why Bitrix24 lets you create posts from emails and add email recipients to your posts. Participating in discussion is as easy as replying to an email or clicking "Add Comment" button that takes external users to a special secure web page. To create new post from email, simply forward it to a special address listed in employee profile. No matter which collaboration tool you choose – intranet, extranet or email – everything will be indexed and stored inside your Bitrix24 account. As usual, this option is absolutely free without any limitations.

Bitrix24 has extensive organizational features which enhance efficiency at the personal and group levels. Tasks can be defined for oneself or assigned to a colleague, or delegated after being received. Project management features of the product are imbedded in the ‘groups’. Any project can have a dedicated group where all of the files, discussions, and tasks pertaining to that project are stored and accessed only by those users who are relevant to the project. Time spent on each task within the project can be tracked, and tasks are integrated into the group calendar. Furthermore, projects can be created in the Extranet, so clients or partners can participate fully in them. Fully customizable self hosted editions of Bitrix24 with source code access are available.
Tasks and subtasks can be viewed in a Gantt chart with status, responsible person, and chronological relationships. This gives a full picture of the progression of the project at a single glance, and helps identify potential or existing delays. Once a task is created, it can still be modified directly from the table or Gantt chart. Bumping up a deadline, adding a subtask, and any other change can be made quickly, with automatic notifications going out to all involved.
Task dependencies, a popular project management tool, are available in all Bitrix24 plans, including the free one. This tool allows you to establish logical relationships between tasks or tasks and milestones. All four dependency types are supported.
Establishing a dependency is done by simply dragging an arrow from one task to another. Once a dependency is established, moving one task can automatically change start/end dates for other tasks in the project, if so desired. Custom task fields are available as well.
The employee workload planning in project management let you finish more tasks on time and identify which ones are getting dangerously close to being overdue. Supervisors can allocate how much time should be spent on each task and then track actual time spent completing them. Monthly reports on time spent on tasks for each department and each employee are available.
Task counters help you keep the tasks which require immediate attention in mind. The counter indicates that you or one of your colleagues has a task with some problem or is incompletely assigned (overdue, not evaluated after completion, or no deadline stated, etc.). Counters and roles simplify supervisors’ work, since they can pull up a graphic showing tasks and their statuses for departments, groups, or individual employees.
Add a checklist to a task and follow the progress point-by-point. This is very convenient when a task involves several steps or there are multiple participants. Participants in the task can add points to the checklist and mark their completion. Now a quick glance is all you need to see the exact status of an ongoing task.
Repeating tasks and task templates help you automate regular chores and recurring work routines. Because task templates in Bitrix24 support subtasks and checklists, they are ideal for repeating business processes, such as hiring/terminating employees, onboarding new clients or starting new projects. Automatic task creation triggered by specific events is available via Bitrix24 visual business process designer. Tasks can be scheduled to repeat in any time interval (i.e. every day, every week, once every 10 days, every Saturday).
Any combination of employees can be collected into a workgroup which contains all the social networking and organizational tools needed to optimize operations and utilize the highly efficient communications methods available in Bitrix24. Each group is like a miniature intranet, that not only stores important files and data, but which serves as a platform for discussions, tasks, tracking, and planning.
Task Reports are an easy way to learn how much time an employee spends on a certain task or project. Using this convenient tool, you can also see how many tasks are still being worked on, and how many of them are already fulfilled. By default, Task Reports can be submitted on a weekly, monthly, or yearly basis, but you can always set custom reporting dates. The pre-set Efficiency Report template allows you to evaluate how efficient participants of a project were. For company executives, it can also help you analyze the overall efficiency of a certain department or the whole company. All reports can be easily imported as Excel files.
The report building lets you aggregate, filter, and sort report data and display them to management in the needed form. The universal report builder lets you collect the data fields needed and evaluate effectiveness, work efficiency, and total time spent on projects and tasks.
The Extranet access provides a secure, separate space where workgroups can be shared with external users such as clients, partners, freelancers and other service providers. All of the same functionality is available in Extranet groups, but these third parties are able only to see the workgroups which they are a part of, and the various users of those groups.
Bitrix24 supports both email-to-task and task-to-email. Users can create tasks by simply forwarding email messages to a special address, available in the profile. Likewise, email recipients can be selected as participants, observers or responsible for task completion. They will receive email notifications any time the task is updated or its status is changed. Email recipients are also able to leave comments to tasks without accessing Bitrix24 account.

Chat participants can be intranet or extranet users, and the chat thread itself can be named and saved in each users chat history. Importantly, Bitrix24 gives you an option to use your own server for instant messaging if your corporate policy prohibits you from using cloud solutions.
Call your colleagues via Bitrix24. Bitrix24 with voice and video calls is an excellent replacement of external services. And you can use the instant messenger during calls – handy for giving email addresses and domain names, etc. This keeps all of your internal communications internal. The Bitrix24 video functions only use your browser (support presently for Chrome 26.0 and higher) – there are no plugins or add-ons. Bitrix24 also provides users with access to video conferencing and screen sharing capabilities for groups up to 4 people. If you are away from your desk, the instant messenger will notify you about missed calls and add it to your call history.
Using the free Mobile App, you can access your social intranet and collaborate on projects from anywhere! The app supports Bitrix24’s chat. New messages and notifications are pushed to you even when the application is closed. Furthermore, you can also view contact details of your co-workers, read news in your Activity Stream, manage files, schedule events, monitor tasks, post comment and ‘like’ things that are being discussed, as well as work with the CRM.
Install the Desktop App to communicate with colleagues outside your browser. The Desktop App contains the Instant Messenger with a contact list, online indication, group chat, and file sync with your personal files in Bitrix24. The Desktop App also provides users with access to video conferencing for groups up to 4 people and allows making web phone calls directly from Bitrix24 at prices that are lower than Skype’s.
Time is money and nothing is faster than real time communications. Bitrix24 gives you a wide choice of RTC tools, from instant messaging and group chat to phone calls, mobile messaging, video calls and videoconferencing. There is no need to integrate anything, these RTC tools are built into your Bitrix24 account and are absolutely free to use. Fully customizable self hosted editions of Bitrix24 with source code access are available.
Bitrix24 makes it easy to hold HD quality video conferences for Bitrix24 users regardless of how they join - from their computers, tablets or smartphones. HD streaming via mobile devices is done in 16:9 aspect ratio. Importantly, if you don't have a high speed internet connection, you can still hold video conferences in standard quality.
Using Bitrix24 desktop apps for video conferencing gives users a number of advantages, such as the ability to share screens during conversations.

Check out our video on Document Management in Bitrix24. This video demonstrates the main features of the powerful document library in Bitrix24. See how to edit, share, and retrieve versions from the public library or from libraries in user and group profiles.
Bitrix24 comes with three types of Drives. My Drive is a personal file storage to which colleagues do not have access to. Employees can place private files here in complete confidence. However, files stored here can shared in several ways. Group Drive contains files uploaded inside a particular workgroup. All participants of that workgroup have access to it. Company Drive contains all files that company wants to make available to all employees. Ability to share files with users outside given Bitrix24 account can be enabled or disabled by administrators of that account.
Collaborate on documents directly in your Activity Stream, write comments, attach new document version, receive feedback, see changes taking place real time! You can allow editing document to all users who are participating in the current discussion, or force them attach new version of your text document or spreadsheet in the comment-box. After all changes have been done to the document, your colleagues and you can save it in a Document Library on your portal, download it to your computer, or you can simply leave it in the Activity Stream. Bitrix24 also makes marking valuable or useful documents quite easy by using the ‘like’ button. Documents which are ‘well-liked’ appear higher in the list of search results.
You can work in Bitrix24 without an office suite! Thanks to integration with Google Docs and MS Office Online you can create text documents, spreadsheets, or presentations right in your web browser! You can add your documents to a task or a discussion in the Activity Stream. The build-in tools provide you with an easy access to any documents in your Bitrix24. You can open, view, and edit documents stored on your Bitrix24 portal via a Google and/or Microsoft (Live ID) account. Documents can be edited simultaneously by multiple users.
You can also choose to use locally installed software, such as MS Office, OpenOffice, Pages for Mac or even Adobe Photoshop, for editing documents in your Bitrix24 account. Simply configure Bitrix24.Drive and every time you decide to create a new document or edit an existing one, this will be done with your local application of choice. When you are done, the document will be automatically saved to your Bitrix24 account.
Bitrix24 contains a powerful search feature which indexes documents, records, messages, comments, and other information. New content is indexed immediately and shows up in search results as soon as it is uploaded. Search results are influenced by ‘liking’, so users can mark content items which are particularly useful and they will remain easy to find. Instant suggestions appear as soon as the user begins typing in the search box, which is especially convenient for going straight to another user’s profile page.
Each document stored in your Bitrix24 has a Change Log. When a new version of a file is uploaded, the previous version is not deleted, but rather saved such that it can be recovered at any time. Version history also contains the time when the version was created and the user who created it.
Users that gave others access to their documents are able to temporarily 'lock' documents in order to make sure that they are the only ones able to edit these files. Doing so prevents creation of conflicting versions of documents or overwriting changes made by other users. Once the editing is completed, the files can be unlocked once again.
Bitrix24 works with Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and other cloud file storage vendors. Employees can upload files from their personal accounts, the files will be indexed and fall under default access rights in Bitrix24 automatically. You can even check if there is a newer version available inside external file storage account than the one that has been uploaded to Bitrix24.
Bitrix24 lets you create custom document workflows for draft submissions, contract revisions, majority vote, multistage approval, expert opinion and so on. Expense reimbursements, business trip requests, and custom records management solutions can all be created easily using the built-in visual business process designer.

The CRM in Bitrix24 provides a platform to organize and track interaction with potential or existing clients, partners, agents and other contacts. Bitrix24’s CRM forms a contact base where the interaction and the history of contacts are managed and stored. All new events (phone calls, messages, meetings) connected with a contact or company are easily logged and further interaction can be planned, including by using integrated tasks.
The CRM contains instruments to create reports, import/export contacts, carry out analysis, and to perform segmentation of the target audience as precisely as needed. Incoming contacts or leads can be divided among sales managers, marketing campaigns can be analyzed, and access permission to any deal or lead can be varied depending on its status or other parameters. The interface in the CRM is convenient and intuitive, and it includes a CRM-only activity stream. This stream is a universal interface that enables actions (notes, emails, tasks, meetings and phone calls) to be initiated on any object or objects in the CRM from a single point. Most importantly, Bitrix24 lets you decide whether to store data in cloud or on your own server.
A quick look at the sales funnel gives an immediate account of transactions in progress and their respective stages. Stages can be added easily and each one appears in a separate line and different color. The length of the line corresponds to the total sum of the deals at that stage, and a table with the numeric values is displayed below the funnel. Importantly, Bitrix24 lets you have unlimited sales pipelines and build multiple sales funnels if you have several product lines or profit centers.
Email marketing is free in Bitrix24 CRM. Send individual or group emails to a list of leads, contacts, or companies. Each CRM manager can use a separate email account or you can assign a single email address to be used by all. Message templates, mail merge and integrations with most popular email marketing platforms are available as well. Whether you use Bitrix24 CRM, email client, webmail or mobile email app to send emails, all messages will be synced with the CRM and appended to the appropriate CRM object.
Calls to clients can be made directly from the CRM using IP telephony via Zingaya VoxImplant. The built-in integration with VoxImplant.Com allows you to make web phone calls directly from a browser or Desktop App at prices that are lower than Skype’s. You can also record phone calls that you make from the Bitrix24 CRM. Additionally, it is possible to use IP-telephony applications (Skype, Lync, or other).
You can assign access to CRM elements in a very flexible way, dividing them among company employees at any stage of the customer engagement process. Any group, department or individually selected user in the intranet may be assigned a ‘role’ such as sales manager, team leader, administrator, etc. These roles can then be allowed access to elements of the CRM. Bitrix24 keeps a detailed log of which employees accessed your CRM records and what they did with them. As an administrator, you are able to view this information and restore previous values if necessary.
Leads and Deals can be processed with substantial automation using business processes. A business process can contain any and all possible actions with CRM elements: sending email, assigning responsibility, setting tasks, etc. Business processes can change the status of elements, fill in fields, and create new elements such as deals. Business processes in the CRM and document library are the best way to make Bitrix24 fit the unique operations of your company.
You can easily integrate this free CRM with your website. Bitrix24 lead capture tools, such as live chat, website forms or callback widget all come with embed code that works with any CMS or e-commerce platform – no coding necessary! Additional integration options are available via REST API.

Dashboards are currently available for deals, leads & invoices and are in the process of being added to all other CRM entities (Contacts, Companies).
Free web form builder inside Bitrix24 can be used to create any form. Templates for most popular form types are already included. The forms are entirely customizable, including using custom CSS and images, and can be embedded into websites or hosted with Bitrix24 public pages. Bitrix24 forms support field rules (conditional logic), post submit redirects, product catalog and online payments. Information submitted via these forms ends up in Bitrix24 CRM as leads, contacts, companies, deals, quotes or invoices, depending on settings selected.
Open channels connect most popular social networks and messengers with Bitrix24 CRM. Client messages from Facebook, VK, Telegram, Skype and other platforms are distributed among Bitrix24 CRM users according to the set rules. Even though your employees use Bitrix24 to communicate with clients real time, the clients will see all replies in the social network or the messenger they initiated the contact with.

Fully customizable self hosted editions of Bitrix24 with source code access are available.
The company structure represents the hierarchy of the organization with departments and sub-departments. You can open up a specific department and determine which employee is the one most relevant to the issue at hand. Subordination in the structure influences many intranet functions: to whom reports are sent, who can delegate tasks to whom, etc. Department heads can see all the tasks of their subordinates.
Want a more engaged and proactive workforce? From self-organizing workgroups to appreciation badges and Company Pulse, there are a number of employee engagement tools that come with your company portal.
When your employees log into Bitrix24 for the first time, they will instantly recognize the activity stream and social intranet interface much like what they have grown accustomed to when using Facebook, LinkedIn and other social networks.
How often do your employees make reports? You can easily set up reporting on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Bitrix24 reminds employees to send reports, and the contents of daily planner are helpfully included and can be edited before sending the final report. Plans for the next reporting period can also be submitted through this form.
The work report is evaluated by a supervisor and commentary can be added. All work reports of a given employee, department, or the whole company can be viewed with their evaluations and efficiency ratings.
HR documents and forms are available in a single location, preventing unnecessary trips to HR or the accounting office. Business processes in Bitrix24 let you automate workflows, such as Leave Approvals, Business Trips, General Requests (Internal Helpdesk), Purchase Requests and Expense Reports.
These are included in the Activity Stream, don’t require setup and are available free of charge. You can modify them, if necessary, or create custom workflows from scratch using visual Business Process designer. Workflows developed by Bitrix24 partners can also be installed from the Marketplace.
Employees only see that information which they are permitted to see. Permissions can be granted to company departments, workgroups, individual users, or to users assigned to pre-defined roles (moderators, group owners, observers, responsible persons, etc.). Bitrix 24 lets you show or hide workgroups, documents, CRM contacts, and practically any other item in the system. Access permissions also work in search; that is, search results to which a given user does not have access will not show up in the search suggestions or results.
Bitrix24 allows collaborative work not only with coworkers, but also with external users – partners, clients, contractors, etc. Inviting external users is as easy as inviting them to a workgroup, and after they have joined, these third party users are visible in a separate list, so that you can always be aware of who is working in the Extranet.
The time management system installs discipline in the work schedule without creating a high pressure atmosphere. Clocking in, clocking out, and breaks are transparently recorded, and a convenient planner and daily report keep tasks organized and prioritized.
The data input into this gadget is saved and used as the basis of the work report for each employee.
