Own Your Close
Cloud Accounting Weekly is now Own Your Close, a newsletter for management accountants, controllers, and providers of outsourced accounting services. For more accounting technology updates, tune in to the Cloud Accounting Podcast.

The informal nature and speed of tools such as Hipchat, Slack, and Microsoft Teams are doing a lot to make teams more productive and collaborative.
However, it also makes gossiping and joking easy. This can make it easier to put down things in writing that you’d never want read out loud (in a courtroom, for example).
For a reminder of why your team should “Slack like everyone is watching,” check out this Bloomberg Government article from 2016: “The legal minefield of office group chat.”
For this and more of the best links I clicked on this past week, keep on scrolling.
