What You Get

Workspaces

Create your own workspaces and bring your team together. Have an unlimited number of workspaces and invite an unlimited number of participants.

Moreover, no limits on a number of file uploads will allow you to benefit from Handshake to the fullest. Stay organized and productive all the time.

Real-time editor

Work together with your team here and now using a real-time collaborative editor. (Up to 20 people)

Work on the same document with your team with no time lags. Exchange text files between different word processors, upload files, use cross-document links, code snippets and more. Save time that could be spent on screen share meetings.  

Document approval

Approve documents with the DACI matrix of responsibility. You can change roles for any document at any moment. There are four roles that you can assign participants to fulfill:


  • Driver

    an initiator of any changes made in the knowledge base;

  • Approver

    the one who makes decisions by approving them;

  • Contributor

    a consultant who suggests and makes changes to a document;

  • Informed

    the one who is informed about the decision.

Security

Security is Handshake’s priority. The best security practices are used to prevent any file access attacks.

All your data are encrypted and fully protected from leakage or theft. Besides, no one has private access to your documents until they accept your invitation.

Easily monitor the list of participants and remove them from the shared spaces at any moment. 

Version control

Track and manage the history of documents or drafts from release to release. Any changes that are approved by participants make a document the latest agreed version or, in other words, source of truth.

Yet you can review the previous versions of documents and restore them. 

Handy search

Don’t get lost in thousands of documents. Use the shortcut of Cmd+K or Ctrl+K to find exact information across all your workspaces.

Have access to important information you are looking for at the right moment.

Smart attributes coming soon

The smart attributes feature makes you be able to convert any piece of text into your own data attribute. By making up a data attribute for yourself, you can extend the power of document filtering.

Retrieve any document that falls under your data attributes. Handshake is integrated with such types of data as texts, numbers and enums. 

Fast onboarding coming soon

Make new hires feel welcome to your team. Some feel discomfort asking questions; others get tired of responding to them. Provide your new employees with all t he important information to help them settle quicker in a new position.

Instead of wasting time and productivity on answering the same questions again and again, you can easily share step-by-step instructions and prepared FAQs with them.

Public websites coming soon
