Kaizala -Initial configuration

In previous post we have seen how to do the initial setup for Kaizala.

Now let us see how to do initial configuration and look at various features provided by Kaizala.

To start using Kaizala, you need to first download the Kaizala app from play store or App store. The Admin of the Kaizala can use the Kaizala management portal. Once you login to the portal, its home page will look like as mentioned in the below screenshot.

  1. Nice article Vrushali…..and something new for me ! Can this be thought of a replacement of existing IM or Skype communicators with some added functionality?


    1. Hi Swapna, thank you very much for reading my article. This is very similar to whatsApp. For Screen sharing and video calling etc Skype would be still preferred, however I will come back to you once I find some information about Microsoft’s roadmap about the same.
      Thank you once again and keep following my blog.
