FWIW, this is absolutely a part of UX, and one that is sometimes neglected.

Starting with You might work ( I know youtube might be similar, but with care it can be done ). And a word implying meeting or talking. YouMeet might work - but the terminology needs to be client specific.

comment Activation emails for accounts
Good verification of card details. And whatever the clients wanted in addition. And confirmation emails would probably not have helped.

comment What is it about our mental models that app-centric seems more intuitive than content-centric?
@Phiilp Absolutely - and it is far easier to market "this app is better than any others you have" than "we can help you manage your documents" - the former can be done with flashy features. And so often, the IT people have been given a very specific problem to solve, not an environment to improve.

I'm not sure why this was downvoted. I think there is something in this. Having said that, I don;t think it is completely correct. We often think "what documents do I need to process to complete this task"
