  • Requests and reports are internal forms for people to request or report various situations, glitches, problems, and requests. It is a kind of internal helpdesk.
  • A list of directives for employees, where there are directives for people to familiarise themselves with
  • It is an inbox for all important company news and information, so it doesn't get lost in the mail.
