My Virtual Collaboration
Collaboration Room offers a personal, online work space for VA for Vets account holders to use for
private meetings and collaboration with coaches, supervisors, coworkers, RVECs,
or HR professionals:
Service Members and transitioning Service Members may meet with deployment and deployment lifecycle coaches, supervisors, coworkers,
HR professionals and other VA personnel to receive assistance related to
the deployment lifecycle.
job seekers may meet with professional career
coaches and RVECs to receive support building a resume, searching and
applying for jobs, or preparing for interviews.
employees may invite other VA employees
to their private meeting rooms to conduct virtual meetings.
users may invite other VA employees, HR professionals, RVECs, and colleagues to
their private meeting room.
Collaboration Room provides all the benefits of an in-person meeting, yet it
allows users to be anywhere in the world, sharing one online space. In their
private rooms, users can display and edit documents together, communicate using
(voice or text chat), browse websites, and use the whiteboard to create to-do
lists or map strategies with their coach. Users’ displayed items are saved from
session to session until removed by the user.
meeting space is automatically created when a user registers for a VA for Vets account and accesses the
Virtual Collaboration Workspace for the first time. The personal meeting space is tied to the VA for Vets account and is only
accessible to the user and the participants a user invites.
