Use Shrtct to bring key people together to tease ideas, fix problems and hash out the details of anything you want.
In short, make better decisions using Shrtct.
How do you use Shrtct?
We built Shrtct in 2015 while pivoting another startup. We needed a tool to consider all of the ideas on the table and hash out a course of action.
We'd tried using email and other similar platforms, but found it incredibly difficult to keep track of each contribution. An idea would be put forward but, before it could be fully considered, someone's brain would fire and the next one would appear. The main points became fragmented and scattered within long, tangent-filled conversations.
Shrtct was our counter attack against the tangent monster. It was so useful, and we enjoyed using it so much, that we gave it a polish and released it.
So, I've spent a good deal of time poking around the site the last few days and have a couple questions about it. I understand how creating a private space could be a powerful communication tool for businesses, groups, or organizations; but I was wondering what your vision for the public hashes & public spaces were? Do you envision a Shrtct as a wide open forum where people can create posts/seek input about anything (I've seen hashes about startups, country music, & supplements). Can you create a public space about anything?
This concept seems very interesting & promising...just trying to wrap my brain around it all!
Question for you - we might use this in beta with our company, and we set up a private space to which we can invite our colleagues.
When I set up a hash, what exactly does "Public" mean? I wanted to notify my colleague about my hash, so I clicked "public" and started typing in his email address. I saw all these other names pop up... are those all shtct users? How do I make our posts visible to only our company users? "this space only?"
