VNCchannels Overview

Updated till version 2.0

VNCchannels is a safe place to store data, share insights, grow knowledge, and collaborate.

A Channel is a container for various Topics enabling the management of users, access, permissions, and subscriptions. A Topic is a post in a Channel with varying content, which can be collaborated and commented upon by its members according to their permissions.

You can create either public Channels to include everyone in the workspace or private Channels for selected members only to enable private conversations in smaller groups. Invite additional members as moderators or participants whenever you like. All your content including text, files, images, videos, and more finds its place in persistent Channels organized by topics and tags.
