As we said in the Anonymous Contact Form blog post, it is important for companies and their administrators to make themselves available to suggestions and comments from within the organization.
Not having an easy contact form costs your business money!
A company with no contact system may make themselves appear unavailable, stagnant, or uninterested in hearing new suggestions, when oftentimes, the exact opposite is the case. Employees may have to resort to sending email or scheduling a meeting to get the attention of a superior, and for many employees, it’s easier to stay in their lane and bringing up a suggestion is not worth the trouble.
No contact form means a messy inbox
Though we hope your company’s contact system is better than the ones mentioned, not having a straightforward solution in place can create a logistical problem for employees trying to contact your administrators.
SharePoint users will have to exit their current task, and the site entirely, just to send a suggestion email to an administrator. Once the administrator receives this email, it may get lost in the swarm of day-to-day emails that already fill up administrators’ inboxes.
Not having a contact form system wastes both the employee’s and the administrator’s valuable time, and the suggestion may be buried in the admin’s inbox for so long that it is no longer relevant. Change will move slowly, or not at all, without a proper solution.
