3. Where can I update my status from?

1. What are status updates?
Our assumption that we know what everyone's upto is absolutely wrong. That's why DeskAway has its own simple micro- blogging feature (something like Twitter.com) which allows all the members to post and update their status. Through these statuses, we can learn what others are doing, share links and project updates. Further we can also subscribe to RSS feeds of these updates.

2. Why should I update my status?
You should update your status if you want to let others know about -
- Project updates
- What you are working on
- Sharing a link
- Commenting on something cool and fun
etc.

3. Where can I update my status from?
You can update your status from 2 places:
a. 'Status Updates' link at the top of the page

b. From within your projects

4. How do I see other people's status updates without logging into my DeskAway account?
If you subscribe to the status updates using the RSS link, you can keep a track of everyone's updates through your RSS Reader (e.g. Google Reader). Simply goto the 'Status Updates' page and click on the 'Subscribe to this RSS Feed' link.
