Roadmap

First Quarter, 2021

File Delivery

Ever wanted just to simply send a BIG file or set of files to someone without the hassle of creating an account for them? File Delivery is the answer!

You may need to send tax returns to a banker, deliver logo files to a designer, or any number of scenarios where the recipient doesn’t have a login to your Portal… and of course the files are sensitive, or too large for email attachments. With File Delivery, you’ll be able to simply upload the file(s), specify the email address of the recipient, configure the security options to fit your needs, and click GO.

The recipient will receive an email containing a secure link which leads them to a branded file download interface. You can secure via password, set an expiration date, and even limit the # of clicks the link would be valid for.

Imagine being able to easily access and choose from a huge collection of Community created Templates, which means you’ll never have to start from scratch again.

3rd Party “Collaborator” Role

Traditional business logic is typically centered around a two-sided structure with the business on one side and the Client on the other.

However, there is a growing breed of businesses that have a more complex structure that more closely resembles a triangle, or a three-sided structure.

The new Collaborator role is intended to serve this new breed of businesses via the creation of a new type of User that will be given very limited access and visibility based on the settings enabled by the Admin. For example, you may create a new Collaborator user and grant that user visibility to see a particular Client or Client’s profile, uploaded files or form submission data. The Collaborator then would be able to assess that Client and the Client’s data complete their side of however the business logic is configured.

The plan is to continue extending the functionality and features related to this Collaborator role based on feedback from our customers.

Extend the possibilities beyond a two-sided business logic

Allow a 3rd party Collaborator access to a Client(s) data on a strict permission only basis

Collaborator role has no visibility or capabilities in the Portal unless specifically granted by the Admin

Enables a three-tiered business logic popular with many of today’s platforms

“Super-Client” Role

There are times when businesses deal with a Client company that has multiple offices or locations, and this presents an issue if the “home office” wants to have visibility and access to Projects or other assets that are in the works with one or all of their sub-offices or satellite locations.

The Super-Client role is intended to serve in these situations to enable a single user or multiple users to be selected as the ‘parent’ Client(s) of some set of other Client(s).

A Super-Client will be able to function exactly like a typical client, but they will additionally have access and visibility to all the Projects, Files and other Portal Content that is permissioned to their ‘child’ Clients.

Enables an efficient organization structure when working with a multi-location Company as your Client

The Super-Client we’ll have permission and visibility of all their assigned child-Client  projects, files, invoices, portal content, etc…

Website Builder Tool

Imagine that you can map your Top Level Domain to your SuiteDash account, and using our website builder tool, you’ll be able to build your actual website at https://yourdomain.com.

Now imagine that on that website, you can display your Intake Form for interested Prospects, which will feed directly into your CRM. This will then trigger a set of follow-up Events on your Calendar and also add that Prospect to an Email Marketing List and trigger a follow-up Drip Campaign.

And, also imagine that on that website is a File Upload widget , a Support Request form, and a variety of other pre-built Integrations…all powered by SuiteDash.

And finally, imagine that there is a login form on that website. If a Staff member logs in, they see an entire suite of productivity and collaboration tools. If a Client logs in, they see a fully customized Client Portal.

Power your website itself using SuiteDash’s powerful tools

Seamlessly and simply integrate your Intake Forms, File Uploads Tools, etc…

You, your Staff & your Clients all login using the website’s Login

When Staff logs in, they will see the SuiteDash platform with collaboration/productivity tools

When Prospects/Clients login, they will see their own unique Client Portal and content

No more ’embedding’ widgets on your website, no more integrations, no more complication

All of SuiteDash’s integrated tools/forms will be easy to place into the SuiteDash powered website. THIS IS THE FUTURE!
