What is Office Collaboration?

Office Collaboration
is the tasks that you, the Business, is the Master of Collaboration, create for people, for customers, for members to login website to collaborate, to do something. Members login their Member Home or My Account to collaborate.

Member login their own account do tasks such as:  Update AccountInfo, Invoice Order History List, Order Status, Check My Payment Info,  Upload Files and Photos, Tracking Shipping, Pay Bill, Feedback and Support form, Seminar Training Registration Form, Edit Credit Card Info, Edit Shipping Address Info, Change Password, Make A Donation, Check My Coupon and Promotion..

=> Software is all about Architect & Design. There are many solutions to a problem.


Office Collaboration is
 Local Social Collaboration Network, a limited Scale Application of Social Collaboration Network TM.

=> There are all kinds of Local Social Collaborations.
For example, Local Collaboration Network also include: Collaboration with Members, Collaboration with Customers, Collaboration with People, Collaboration with Partners, Collaboration with Suppliers, Collaboration with Students, Collaboration with Employees ...This is called Local Social Collaboration Networks. They all use the same Framework Collaboration.

** NOTE ** Office Collaboration is a special feature. It is is built in Office. Office Database is acting as Member Collaboration Source. 

- Office Collaboration: The Master ( in red)  and the Members of Collaboration.

- The Collaboration Master can be: Big, medium, small size of Businesses, Schools, Manufactures, Organizations,  Agencies, Government ...

- The Collaboration Members can be: People, Customers, Employees, Suppliers, Students, Partners ...

- Why COLLABORATION? - Math, Game Theory proves that Collaboration is always to produce the best outcome for every one. This applies in Business, in E-Commerce, in Social, in Economy, Human interaction with Human,  at Work ...=> Thus in Social Collaboration Network TM, both Master & Members have benefits.


Game Theory proves that in collaboration everyone will gain.

- Math, Game Theory proved that Collaboration always produces the best outcome for every one who collaborates.

The Game: There are a Person A and a person B. The Game rule is simple: A and B have option to Collaborate or Not Collaborate. Thus, statistically, there are 4 situations could happen in this game. 

Situation 1) A and B collaborate. Then both A and B will get 2$.
Situation 2) A collaborate with B. But B do not collaborate with A. => B will gain  +5$. A will lost  -5$.
Situation 3) B collaborate with A. But A do not collaborate with B. => A will gain  +5$. B will lost  -5$.
Situation 4) A and B do not collaborate. => A and B lost -2$.


- When both A and B play the game. B is greedy and selfish. He reasons that he wants to gain 5$ by not collaborate with A, better than to collaborate with A and get only 2$. => So B play situation (2) to gain $5.
- The same selfish and greed happened to A (or A may have no other choice). He reasons that he wants to gain 5$ by not collaborate with B, better than to collaborate with A and get only 2$. => So A play situation 3) to gain $5.
=> The result: Because A and B greed, selfish. Each always wanted to gain for itself. => Both did not collaborate. => As a result,
both A & B play situation 4) Thus both lost -2$.

=> The Game proves that if A and B => Tolerance and Collaborate, both will gain +2$. But because selfish, greedy, both wanted to gain for itself, and take advantages the other, thus A and B did not collaborate. As a result, A and B lost -2$.

=>
This game applies in Business, in E-Commerce, in Social, in Economy, in Human interaction with Human, at Work ...

=> For example, let's apply this game in Business. If Business A collaborates with business B not to increase price, then each will make small profit.
- But because business A is selfish, greedy, so business A reduced price. As a result, business A gained more customers from business B. Thus A increased more profit.
- However, Business B played the same game strategy as business A ( - Or may be have no other option). Business B reduced same price as A, or even less, in order to increase profit & gain more customers.
- As you see, both business A and B did not collaborate, kept reduced price to gain customers. => As a result, both business A and B now less profit, make no money. Now, both are in a danger situation. => Who is the winner? No one including the customers. Because business A, B had less profit, so produced less quality for products & services. Therefore, customers will get less quality for their products & services as well.

=>
Collaboration, every one will gain. No collaboration, every one will lose.

- Social Media Network started in the beginning very humble & simple. It will grow bigger and more complex.

-
For example, Facebook first started humble in the beginning. CEO Mark Zuckerberg when started Facebook, never though it grows something that big & complex & powerful like it is now. => No one can predict.

-  For example, if you look at the History of Product Development, like Internet ( => Click & see the first-ever website (info.cern.ch) in August 1991 was so so simple. No one could analyze & predict the Internet evolving like now. ), Car, Airplane, PC computer, Database (Oracle first database was so so so simple), Social media, Smart phone .. => All products got started humbling in the beginning. Then it keeps improving & evolving & growing into something big, something innovative, something powerful over the years. It is hard to predict.

=> In the near future more funding & research, Social Collaboration Network TM will be advanced so useful & powerful. Social Collaboration Network TM goal is:  WHAT EVER BUSINESSES, ORGANIZATIONS WANT PEOPLE TO COLLABORATE, NET COLLABORATION WILL DO IT & CAN DO IT.


- Only the Net has the power to reach people big scale, anywhere, anytime, and gather people big crowd.

How Office Collaboration Works?

To create Member Collaboration you need 3 main components: Member Collaboration Source (Database, Table), Member Collaboration Command ( Task, Method ), and Member Collaboration Attribute (Characteristics, Fields) .

- Collaboration Source: Is the database that contains the collaboration 's data that member will do something on data. Office Dbase is the database source.
For example, Member Collaboration -> Invoice Order List, the Member Collaboration Source is the database table = x_Invoice that stores all invoice data.
NOTE: All Member Collaboration Source tables must include a Member Collaboration Key or Email so that it distinguishes between Member's collaboration by Email.

=> Collaboration Source in complex cases can happen & collaborate in multi tables or multi-sources.

- Collaboration  Command: Is the Tasks or the commands that act or run or executes by Members.
Tasks such as: Update/Edit, List, Upload, Form, View, Broadcast, Add, Join ...
For example, Office Collaboration -> Invoice Order List, the Member Collaboration Task is List = List all info or invoices of that member.

=>
The more complex Collaborations => The more complex Collaboration Commands.

- Collaboration Attribute: Is the Characteristics, or the Attributes, or the Property, is the Fields of database table the define that Member Collaboration. .
For example, Member Collaboration -> Invoice Order List, the Member Collaboration Attribute is = INVOICEID, INVOICE_DATE, STATUS, NAME, PAID BY, SHIPPING_FEE, SALESPERSON ... These attributes are the Fields of database table x_invoice. You can always change the fields to display.

** IMPORTANT ** Complex Office Net Collaboration can happen & collaborate in multi-sources (=multi tables), in ERD ( = ERD is a data modeling technique that can help define business processes and can be used as the foundation for a relational database.), with complex Collaboration Commands. Complex Office Net Collaboration are designed by Developers, for Developers. Out of the scope of discussion.
=> In most cases, people without any web skills can do all Net Office Collaboration we list above.


How To Create Office Collaboration. In 2 Steps

The way we design is easy so that any one no web skills can do.

- Example 1:
To create Member Collaboration = Invoice Order Status: To create this Member Collaboration, you will do 2 steps:

Select Member Collaboration Source = table x_invoice. (already exist) see:
 x_invoice.

Step 2)
You then select [COLLABORATION] in topmenu -> Select [Create Member Collaboration Tasks] sub menu -> Follow its GUI interface to select Member Collaboration Attributes, such as, select: INVOICEID, INVOICE_DATE, PAID_BY, NAME, PHONE, TAX.. and select the Task = List. DONE.
When members login, they will see Member Collaboration Invoice Order Status ( or Order History).

- Example 2: To create Member Collaboration = Check My Coupon and Promotion: To create this Member Collaboration so that when member login will see their coupon or promotion. You do 2 steps:

Step 1) Create a new database table = Member_Coupon_Promotion ( or any name, not exist). A new table. It must have the Email (Member Collaboration Key) field. 

Step 2) From then top main menu Collaboration -> Select sub menu = Create Member Collaboration Tasks -> Pop up GUI windows guides you step by step to select Fields ( or Member Collaboration Attribute), and Tasks ( or Member Collaboration Task), in this case = List. That is it. DONE.
When member logins will see Member Collaboration =  Check My Coupon and Promotion in the left menu of Member Home. They click on this link, will list all their coupons and promotions that you entered in the table for them. Of course, each member's coupon and promotion is different with others based on Email.
