    Bitrix24 Standard and Professional plans subscribers can now access Advanced Bitrix24.Drive options such as Allow Document Locking & Disable Public Links.

    Allow Document Locking

    When several users are working with same document, it may be important to have an option to “Lock document for editing by another user”. This action may help you to protect the file from changes being made by other users who also have access for this file.

    By default, the Lock option is disabled. In order to activate it for your Bitrix24 please open Settings > Intranet Settings and find “Allow document locking” option in the list:

    Roughly one third of all workers in the USA is freelancing according to the study conducted by Sara Horowitz, Founder and Executive Director of Freelancers Union and Fabio Rosati, CEO Elance-oDesk Freelancing. The gig economy is a big trend not only in the USA, as there are 8.9 million “iPros” or independent workers in Europe and this number is constantly growing. According to the findings of the recent Upwork survey, the majority of freelancers who quit full-time jobs earn more as freelancers and 60% of them started their freelance career by choice (rather than necessity), which means the gig economy is going to reshape the way we work in the nearest future. Executives are challenged to learn how to manage this very special category of workers. Here are our 4 simple steps which will help you not only enjoy the advantages of external talent pool, but also reduce the stress and make the work flow much smoother.

    You are an internationally known author and speaker on the topic of leadership. Do you think that leadership is something that you can develop? What should an average person do to become a great leader?


    Many people debate whether great leaders are born great or somewhere along the way they develop to become great. I think the debate is silly. No one is born to be a great leader, becoming a great leader is a choice. Some talents are inherited that may make leadership more natural for some than others – like charisma and outgoing personality– but the skills to develop trust and sustain long-term followers is earned by mastering specific skills.

    My new book, The First Two Rules of Leadership: Don’t be Stupid. Don’t Be a Jerk. details how leaders are derailed because they make decisions that are uniformed and treat their team in a way that is considered unfair or without compassion.

  • 4 Ways To Fight Procrastination Within Your Team

    Do you procrastinate? Surely you do. We all do. There is something in our human nature that makes us put off things that must be done and kill time instead. A Greek poet Hesiod wrote in the poem Works and Days: “Do not put your work off till to-morrow and the day after; for a sluggish worker does not fill his barn, nor one who puts off his work: industry makes work go well, but a man who puts off work is always at handgrips with ruin.” The poem was written in circa 800 BC, almost 3000 years ago!

    It is difficult to overestimate the negative impact procrastination has on any business. According to Gallup's State of the American Workplace report seven out of 10 workers in the US say they aren’t fully engaged at work, meaning they aren’t working to their fullest potential. The resulting loss of productivity can cost companies between $450-$500 billion a year. Is there anything to improve the situation? Can you make your employees procrastinate less and be fully engaged in their professional duties? Yes, you can!

    Your books Robert’s Rules of Innovation and Robert’s Rules of Innovation II: The Art of Implementation are based on the idea that innovation is a necessity for the business nowadays. Can you explain why?

    RB: Innovation is essential, Innovate or Perish…it is all about the Product or Service Life cycle. No matter how well you do, ultimately you will crest and if you don’t Innovate you will perish. Think Kodak film, VHS tapes, even Blockbuster video stores, yahoo for that matter. Ideally you work on building lifecycle upon lifecycle, continues innovation driven by a structured repeatable process.

  • Single Sign-On For Bitrix24 Self-hosted Using SAML

    Yana Prokopets 26 April 2016 626
    A post from MAKE Interactive, a Bitrix Gold Partner.
    Coordinating Single Sign-On among multiple business software tools is an important feature for users of the Bitrix24 self-hosted version. Even though SSO only saves a small amount of time, it saves time every day for every employee and prevents a great deal of frustration with constant logins and occasional loss of passwords.

    Using SAML, a very convenient bridge can be made from Bitrix24 to other tools in your local environment or to any website that supports SAML. Bitrix24 can receive the user's identity from elsewh ere, such as an ADFS, or act as an Identity Provider itself.
