Due to the Coronavirus, there is an increased dependency on communication tools for remote teams. Imagine a company that has multiple teams across the globe. For global teams to work, there needs to be a working communication tool that allows productive conversations. Skype used to be the solution for remote teams.

However, there are rumors that Microsoft will be shutting down Skype as of July 31, 2021. Microsoft’s goal is to encourage people to start using Teams. But, not everyone likes using Teams due to its complexities. To see alternatives to Microsoft Teams, click here.

If you are a person using Skype, there are more holistic alternatives that can deliver more than what you have. To figure out which communication tool is best for your remote teams, we compare AirSend and Skype.   


Skype is a communication platform that specializes in VoIP between computers, tablets, and mobile devices. What this means is that users can call via audio or video with clients. Skype also provides instant messaging services. 

The neat thing about Skype is that it is excellent for one-on-one and group conversations and works wherever you are. Skype’s UI is simple, which makes the usability of the product easy to use. With Skype, you can also record meetings. Users can also share files up to 300 MB.

Skype is also great for sending meeting links. However, calling via video or audio and having conversations is the only thing you can do with Skype. Skype lacks the proper essentials needed in business communication tools. A few essentials Skype lacks are task management and note-taking.

While it is important to have a reliable communication tool, especially for remote teams, it is also important to have tools that help get the job done. Preferably tools that are found within a communication tool, such as AirSend.


AirSend is a simple communication tool designed for remote teams. Our platform provides built-in:

  • Conversation spaces
  • Video and audio calling
  • Sharing files/notes
  • Task and Business management

AirSend’s capabilities will allow remote teams to work better and faster. No more distractions, everything is found in one space. Even more notable is that users can also plan and communicate on upcoming projects from multiple devices. Working from any device allows users to constantly stay in the loop without missing a beat.

Furthermore, our user interface carries a sleek and simplistic design. A clean design allows users to view all features needed for a channel, such as writing/tracking notes.

Finally, AirSend can do large file transfers, downloads, and uploads. 


Our goal with AirSend is to do less with more. Our mission is to be the #1 communication tool for remote teams. 

We want to deliver a communication tool that allows you to take care of all your business needs in one space.

AirSend is a versatile digital workspace to share files, send messages, and complete tasks. See how AirSend can help you.

Some pre-formatted messages include: /inspire (sends an inspirational message to the channel) and /me (your message looks as if it were sent by the Channel).

Some additional Channel capabilities include: /transfer_ownership @ (transfers ownership of the channel to whoever you specify) and /kick @ (kicks a user out of a Channel).

Have fun with pre-formatted messages and additional channel capabilities using the slash command.

We are back with another blog post on Discord vs. AirSend: Roles and Permissions Explained. We recently wrote about Discord vs. AirSend Design Edition, which you can read about by clicking here. In this blog post, we will be discussing the user roles from each platform. User roles help make managing communities easier. The question then remains, what type of roles are needed to manage a community efficiently? 

To answer this question we analyze how user roles are implemented in AirSend and Discord.

AirSend’s Roles

AirSend public channel roles. AirSend community roles

Typically when creating a community,  user roles are established to help run the channel. Airsend takes the approach of fixed user roles to manage a community. Fixed user roles allow simplicity and have the same meaning across channels and servers. We created various roles with this in mind. Beginning with the first role: viewer. 


Viewers have the permissions to view the community and download files. These are for first-time visitors who haven’t joined the community and want to browse before joining. The next role on our list is a collaborator. 


Collaborators have access to posting messages and uploading files. However, collaborators cannot edit the wiki (the about section). 

AirSend wiki view

Collaborators are the basis of your community. Ideally, collaborators are what ensure conversation happens. For a little more responsibility, there is the role of a full collaborator. 

Full Collaborators

A full collaborator can do everything a collaborator does. The only difference is that a full collaborator can edit the wiki. By allowing a full collaborator to help monitor the channel and edit the wiki, managers and admins can focus more on community building and outreach. After the full collaborator role is the manager and admin. 


Like the full collaborator roles, managers and admins also can edit the wiki, upload files, and post messages. However, the difference between the full collaborator and the manager/admin is that managers and admins can manage other users. 

Now, don’t get confused. Managers and Admins are two different roles, but they mostly carry the same functionality. The difference between a manager and an admin is that the manager can add and remove other users from the channel. Admins have access to adding and removing users and changing the roles of other members. Having these two roles ensures that your community stays clean from self-promoters, rule breakers, inappropriate messages, etc.

In general, we believe that having fixed roles helps communities prosper. Fixed roles allow simplicity. For Discord, the central idea behind their roles is customization. Through their customization, complexities arise.

Discord Roles

Discord channel view
Member list seen on right panel

Discord takes the approach of dynamic user roles. It is good for communities that want customized user roles. The problem with having dynamic roles and customization is that it adds complexity.

For example, Server A has specified permissions for its members. Members have permission to:

  • Post in channel
  • Share files
  • Invite other members to the community

Now, let’s say we want to join another community, Server B. Because there is full-fledged customization, creators of the server can check off specified permissions for their roles that may be different from other servers. In Server B, members can have permission to:

  • Post in Channel
  • Share files
  • Add reactions

But they cannot invite other members to the community as Server A can. Members cannot view what permissions they have unless there is a channel created for rules. Now, imagine this with higher roles.

Let’s say there are Moderators in Server A and Server B. Server A has specific permissions to kick members out. In Server B, those same moderators from Server A do not have the permission to kick members out. This is not apparent to the moderators, thus confusion and complexities are formed.

How to add a role to Discord

To add roles, you will need to go to your servers’ settings located under your server’s name. Click on your server’s name and a drop-down menu will appear.

Image of Discord channel with a red arrow pointing to server settings.

After you clicked on server settings, click on the button titled roles. Accessing roles will allow you to edit/add new and current roles.

Discord image displaying roles settings.
The red arrow points to Roles. The yellow box indicates where you create roles. The green box indicates role preferences.

As seen from the image above, the yellow box is where you create new roles. Click on the plus icon. Doing so will allow you to create a new role. 

Located in the green box, are all the functionalities a role member can have. Each role carries customized permissions to a channel. And each role can have a customized name. These names can range from Admins, Community Manager, Mods, Helpers, Servers Guide, etc.

Additionally, access-only channels can be made for specific Discord roles as well. Servers can have a moderator-only chat, an admin-only chat, etc. Access-only channels are excellent use for privacy, carrying specific role meetings, organization, and maintaining order. Furthermore, bots are an excellent tool for role management. Servers can have bots for anything, but when it comes to managing servers, some bots take care of

  • warning users that violate the rules
  • suspending users
  • putting users in a time out
  • automatically adding new users to the member roles and more. 

In sum, Discord’s roles are good for communities who are looking for customized roles and bots. Bots ensure:

  • The server runs smoothly with automated welcome messages to new members
  • Assign new users to the member role
  • Alert the community that the server creator put out new content
  • Ban or suspend members who do not follow the community rules, and much more. 


Both AirSend and Discord are great community platforms. Discord offers quite a bit for community building through dynamic user roles, bots, channel organizations, and more. The downside to this approach is the complexities and confusion members will have with each community they join. The common question will be asked, “What permissions do I have with this server that is different from another server?”

On the other hand, AirSend takes the approach of fixed user roles. Fixed user roles are easy to understand and avoid confusion. Fixed user roles have the same meaning across channels and makes it easy for the user onboarding. In the end, it all depends on what the user is comfortable with- having a simplistic role setting or a customized but complex setting.

Did you know, digital transformation helps businesses be more nimble and productive? What is digital transformation? Digital transformation is the integration of digital technology into all areas of business, such as Human Resources, Accounting, Engineering, and Marketing.

Digital transformation is also taking manual processes, like collecting/filing new hire applications and converting it into a digital process. AirSend can help take manual tasks, such as filing and communication, and automate them.

AirSend’s channels allow H.R. departments to hire, interview, and onboard new employees seamlessly. Let’s discuss how this is all possible. 

How to Make a Channel

For those who are not familiar with how to make a channel with AirSend, we left a short video to help get you started. Now, let’s talk about the possibilities of hiring, interviewing, and onboarding new employees with AirSend. 

In each channel, users have access to a built-in conversation space, task management, file storage, and a notebook. These tools allow H.R. departments to seamlessly: 

  • Carry discussions
  • Host meetings
  • Plan for the week with a to-do list and a notebook 
  • Find all their essential files in one space.
AirSend channel view. Image of AirSend channel

Another cool and useful feature is that departments can have as many notes as they desire within their notebook! Crazy, right?

AirSend wiki view. Image of wiki in AirSend. AirSend notebook

What this means is that your note section isn’t limited to one space. Users can make as many files and folders within their digital notebook. 

Having these capabilities makes it easy for H.R. departments to get their work done better and faster. The next question we must ask is how to conveniently onboard new employees. Channel Templates!

How to Make a Channel Template

Image of create a new channel with AirSend

Having a channel template is a fast and easy way to onboard new hires. Essentially, you create an onboarding channel that has everything new hires’ need to get started. When it comes to making a channel with the applicant, you can copy from the original onboarding channel, and the applicant will conveniently have everything they need from the onboarding channel.

Image of AirSend channel view

Now, let’s discuss public channels. AirSend’s public channels are a great way to have outside applicants ask questions about job postings, future opportunities, and job descriptions. 

How to Make a Public Channel

For those who are not familiar with how to make a public channel with AirSend, we left a short video and a link to a previous blog post to help get you started. In a few steps, this is how you create a public channel: 

  • Make a channel
  • Check off “Make Channel Public”
  • Customize your channel
  • Share your public link address, so applicants can easily ask questions

By allowing applicants access to your public channel, departments can easily and quickly answer questions. If you prefer not to answer questions through a public channel or prefer not to ask a question in a public channel, there is an alternative. By hovering on the user’s/employer’s profile picture, you can now send a direct message.

Having a public channel is an excellent way for employers to connect with applicants and vice versa. Updates from employers can also be posted on a public channel, allowing everyone to stay in the loop. If you are afraid of spammers spamming your channel, no problem. AirSend now has moderator functionality, so you can control who has access. 


The way we work is changing. We are progressing and innovating with technology. Traditional methods and the way we currently do things will now become more accessible. We will connect with others faster, work better, and grow our businesses into empires. But to do that, we need a tool that processes the manual work and turns it into digital work. A tool like AirSend.

A head-to-head comparison of one of the biggest players in the digital workspace market - Microsoft Teams - and an up-and-coming new arrival - AirSend.
A head-to-head comparison of one of the biggest players in the digital workspace market – Microsoft Teams – and an up-and-coming new arrival – AirSend.

Microsoft Teams or AirSend? Which platform should you choose for your business?

Now more than ever, every business needs to find the right tools to stay connected with its team and customers. This blog post is a head-to-head comparison of one of the biggest players in the digital workspace market – Microsoft Teams – and an up-and-coming new arrival – AirSend.

We’re going to go over how each digital workspace performs in four categories, with clear pros and cons on both sides, so that you can make the best decision for your business. The four categories are:

  1. Pricing
  2. UI Design
  3. UX
  4. Features & Capabilities

Microsoft Teams vs. AirSend: Pricing

As mentioned before, Microsoft Teams is already a major player in the digital workspace market, while AirSend is still up-and-coming. That’s probably why MS Teams is definitely the more expensive option.

The free version of Microsoft Teams gives you 2 GB of personal storage and 10 GB of shared storage. The free version of Airsend (currently the Pro version – which AirSend is offering free for one year) gives each user 100 GB of storage and does not differentiate between personal or shared.

Additionally, you can only get Microsoft Teams free if you sign up for Office 365 as a new user. If you’re already using Office 365, Teams is not free but included in certain paid plans, the cheapest being $12.50/user/month.

In comparison, AirSend is currently offering AirSend Pro free for one year for anyone who signs up. You can even sign up for multiple accounts if you have more than one email address.

Pricing: AirSend wins.

Microsoft Teams vs. AirSend: UI Design

User interface can be a matter of personal preference.

AirSend’s UI Design is very simple and clear. You have the main page where you see all of your channels and where you can create new channels. And once you click into a channel, the chat, actions, files, and Wiki are all in the same place in each channel. It’s also easy to access the channel settings to change the name of the channel, background, logo, and other settings.

With MS Teams’ UI Design, things get more complicated. This might be because Teams has more features (more on this in a bit). But there is some redundancy in terms of the chat tab, and then the messaging section in the teams section, and then the messaging within channels within the teams. On the plus side, there is more ability to customize what features goes where in the MS Teams UI. On the other hand, you cannot customize the channel backgrounds and logos like you can in AirSend – read: no custom branded channels in MS Teams.

UI Design: it’s a tie.  

Microsoft Teams vs. AirSend: UX

Of course, UX largely piggybacks off of UI design, so we’re going to continue our above discussion with some additional points.

AirSend’s simplicity allows for a new user to jump in and get the hang of things quickly. Microsoft Teams, while offering a greater amount of flexibility and more features, can be overly complicated and difficult to understand.

For example, when you upload a file in AirSend – it shows up in the location that you uploaded it and nowhere else. Then you can drag and drop it to share. Or you can upload directly to the chat, and it will show up in the attachments folder of that channel. That is easy to understand for the lay user.

In contrast, when you upload a file in Microsoft Teams, it shows up in three places: the chat, SharePoint, and OneDrive. And there are even two separate links (one from SharePoint and one from OneDrive) that point to the same file. There’s more of that redundancy we mentioned earlier which makes it seem like MS Teams’ UI and UX was not very well thought-out.

UX: AirSend wins.

Microsoft Teams vs. AirSend: Features and Capabilities

If it’s app integrations you’re looking for, MS Teams wins hands down. It has 503 total app integrations, some popular ones being Microsoft Office Suite, Trello, and GitHub. AirSend has Office 365 integration, which allows you to easily edit documents, and email integration so that you can still use AirSend to communicate with clients who don’t have an AirSend account. But that’s about it.

On the other hand, AirSend has some built-in capabilities that Microsoft Teams does not have. First, it’s easy to work with people outside your organization with AirSend. Just create a new channel and invite them to the channel using their email address. With MS Teams – it’s hoop after hoop just to get permission to share things with people outside your org. If you have and IT manager who can configure that for you – great. If not, good luck!

AirSend also has a built-in actions management section, which MS Teams does not have but makes up for with its Trello integration. And AirSend gives you the ability to easily create public channels where anyone who has a link to the channel can join. This is great for businesses who want to build a community or host a public Q&A channel.

Features and Capabilities: it depends.


As you can see, choosing between Microsoft Teams and AirSend for your business greatly depends on your current set-up, level of technical knowledge, and business needs. If you’re a heavy Office 365 user that doesn’t mind a steeper learning curve and needs more integrations – Microsoft Teams is the way to go. If you’re looking for a simple, easy-to-use digital workspace solution that allows you to work with both your team and outside clients with ease – then choose AirSend.

How to set up a channel template in AirSend for your coaching business.
How to set up a channel template in AirSend for your coaching business. 

Having worked with life coaches in the past, we know there’s a basic process when working with a client. First, you onboard the client with the necessary contracts and forms, as well as a syllabus going over what their program is going to be like. Maybe there’s a video, maybe there isn’t. Maybe a workbook, maybe not. 

Then, you deliver the program materials to your client – all at once or spread out over the course of a few weeks or months or years. Program materials typically include things like videos, worksheets, and books. 

As your client goes through the program, you support them through chat, video calls, and/or in-person meetings and workshops. 

There are many ways you can set up the tech system you use to deliver your coaching services, and one of the easiest ways to do so is to use AirSend because of AirSend’s channel template functionality. 

The rest of this post will show you how to set up a channel template in AirSend for your coaching business. 

Create a channel

First you want to create a new channel which you’re going to turn into a template for future channels.

Create a coaching channel template

Put important information into the Wiki

If you have a Zoom link that you use to communicate with clients or want to link to a private Facebook group, the Wiki is the place to put that information. Just make sure the information you put in the Wiki of your template channel is something that you want all of your clients to have access to. 

Put important coaching information into the Wiki

Upload the blank contracts and course materials

Next, upload blank copies of all of the contracts and course materials that you want each of your clients to start with. These materials will show up in the files section of each new channel that you create from this template. Don’t forget that you can create folders to sort your files.

Upload blank coaching materials and organize them in folders (if desired)

Create any actions you want your clients to take

If you don’t want to waste time reminding each new client to turn in their forms or attend their onboarding calls, you can create some action items in your template channel so that they show up in each new channel you create. 

Create action items for your coaching clients

Duplicate the channel for each new client

After you’ve set up your template channel, it is very easy to duplicate the channel and/or create new channels based on your template. 

Use your channel template to onboard your new coaching clients

As you can see, using AirSend’s channel template functionality can save you a lot of time and hassle. Ready to use AirSend channel templates to make your coaching life easier? Feel free to let us know your thoughts here

We are back with another blog post on Discord vs. AirSend: Productivity Edition. We recently wrote about Discord vs. AirSend Design Edition, which you can read about by clicking here. In this blog post, we will define what productivity is and how both platforms fit into this category. 

Without further ado, let’s talk about productivity. 

What is Productivity?

Productivity is defined as efficient methods used to get work done better and faster.

How does one incorporate productivity into their workspace? There are several ways to incorporate productivity into a personal workspace. These trends are: 

  • Convenience
  • Efficiency  
  • Built-in functionality 
  • Integration 
  • The simplicity of UI and UX

These five trends are what form the basis of a productive workspace. We have defined what productivity is and how it incorporates into a workspace.

How are Discord and AirSend a productive workspace? And which platform is better in terms of productivity? 


Image of AirSend signup page.

AirSend is an easy-to-use collaborative workspace. AirSend’s vision is to get work done better and faster through the limitation of switching between apps. The way we limit switching between apps is through built-in capabilities.

By introducing built-in functionality, users can save time by getting the work done from one space. AirSend provides all the productivity essentials through built-in capabilities: 

  • Task management
  • File storage/organization 
  • Notebook
  • Centralized conversation
  • Video/audio calling
Image of plain AirSend channel. AirSend channel view

AirSend is an excellent platform that centers itself around convenience and efficiency through the solution of native capabilities. Think about it. Using other apps, such as Slack or Teams, often require users to switch to other apps to aid in getting work done. Time is wasted switching between apps.

AirSend eliminates the third-party apps by providing all that you need in one workspace. For example, a notebook.

AirSend wiki image. AirSend notebook/tracking

AirSend’s notebook allows users to track/take notes effectively. Think of it as a general hub for storing knowledge. Additionally, AirSend also offers built-in audio/video calling. Finally, users can experience higher productivity with a simple UI/UX. Everything you need is located all in one space.


Image of Discord channel

Discord is an audio/video communication tool that markets towards communities and gamers.

Through Discord’s integrations, users can easily manage their communities and teams. Currently, there are no productive integrations, such as Trello or Office 365.

Not having productive apps means users need to have external tabs open. Having external tabs open means spending time switching between apps. Time spent switching between apps means work not getting done in a timely manner. See the problem?

Of course, the big selling point to Discord is its built-in audio and communication. With audio and communication, there is a higher chance of innovation, ideas, and team building happening. 


All in all, both platforms are great for having a productive workspace. It comes down to whether users want to:

  • Save time working from one space or having multiple tabs open
  • Have a platform where conversations happen through the organization of servers or channels
  • Have a clean and simple UI design

When it comes down to choosing between Discord or AirSend, select the platform that allows you to optimize your workspace to the best of your need.

It’s important to have the right communication tools in your coaching technology set-up.
It’s important to have the right communication tools in your coaching technology set-up. 

As a life coach, communication is key. The heart of your service to your clients is helping them succeed by communicating key messages and having the right conversations with them. That is why it’s important to have the right communication tools in your coaching technology set-up. 

Not only does having the right tools help you work better with your coaching clients. It also prevents the frustration of trying to figure out what’s wrong when technology breaks down. 

The rest of this post is going to go over some of the best communication tools in three categories of your business: video conferencing, messaging, and file sharing.

Video Conferencing and Screen Sharing


Zoom has become the golden standard when it comes to video conferencing and screen sharing. These days it seems like everyone is on Zoom, from large companies like Dell to individually run coaching businesses. It’s easy to see why. Zoom is cheap (there’s a free version) and full of features like a link that you can share for impromptu meetings, the ability to share your screen to show PowerPoints or demos, and the ability to run large-scale webinars. The other benefit is that because it is the golden standard, most people will already have the Zoom app downloaded on their phone or computer and will have no problem getting on a Zoom call with you. 



AirSend offers individual and group messaging with additional features like the ability to share videos, PDFs, and other files and easily organize those files. It also has a channel template function where you can make templates to quickly onboard new clients. If you’re interested in learning more about coaching templates, you can visit our blog post called “How to Make a Coaching Channel Template.”


If you’re based in Asia or have many Asian clients, you probably already have WeChat downloaded on your phone. It has become such a standard for messaging that most, if not all, Asians use it for both their business and personal messaging needs. One cool feature of WeChat is the ability to leave voice note messages. It is faster than texting and less involved than a call. 

File Sharing


DropBox is a favorite for file storage and sharing because of its easy set-up and pleasing interface. One of its most convenient features is the ability to share files using their unique links. It’s also easy to upload files and organize them in folders, as well as control the permissions for files and folders so that members of your team or clients only have access to what you want them to see and/or edit. 


As mentioned before, AirSend offers the ability to share and organize files. The difference between DropBox and AirSend is that Dropbox focuses solely on file storage and sharing, whereas AirSend offers messaging, file organization and sharing, note taking, and action tracking all in one space. 

Having the right communication tools is important for any business, but especially for coaching businesses where the service you are providing requires communicating with clients. 

Hopefully this overview of some of the best communication tools will help you determine the best coaching tech set-up for you.

  • Dark Mode
  • Direct Message
  • UX Improvements: quoting messages

Without further ado, let’s dive into the latest AirSend Android updates!

Dark Mode

AirSend Android main channel view in dark mode

Android app users can now experience a new feel to AirSend with full dark mode support. With less strain on the eyes, users can now work seamlessly into the night. 

Direct Message

Android app users can now seamlessly DM other team members or groups from within a channel. Click on the user’s picture and a drop-down option for direct messaging will be available.
