Most popular features of all Collaboration apps
15 reviewers had the following to say about XWiki's features:
There are a lot of software out there to store documents, deal with live text, revisions, and collaboration... but most are just another bucket where information goes to die.
Sits on top of a top-notch Java stack, ORM, with REST APIs, so you can virtually do anything from using it as a simple Wiki to using it as a back-end to a mobile app.
Not the Ruby on Rails approach, but why reinventing the wheel every time anyway?
Time used: 1-2 years
We decided to grant access to the knowledge base to all our collaborators. We are also using the XWiki SAS support service and we are really satisfied with it.
The tool encourage employees to communicate better with each other and stimulates the collaboration in the company.
Key has been the ability to mix unstructured and structured data - and the ability to access the structured data quickly through LIVETABLES - 100s and 1,000s of records can be filtered and sorted with no delays. The security features mean we've been able to set up wikis for different parts of the group and control access levels properly.
The 'out of the box' configuration will work well for many small organizations. The permission controls are extremely versatile and secure, providing for public, private, individual or group permissions of all content at a very granular level.
I particularly enjoy the file manager application and the Application Within Minutes feature that I'm using to create page templates.
The simplicity and ease of access, integrated areas and processes and provided us improve our knowledge management.
We have a lot of member interactions and I was thinking of using the application for our activities. I was happy to see that you can get all sorts of extensions and that you can customize your instance to look exactly as you please.
Easy: The user interface, workflows, hierarchies, tools, etc. are straight-forward, intuitive and allows new users, as well as those coming to XWiki from other platforms (even non-wikis), to find their way and begin contributing.
XWiki has progressed very nicely over time, I've been continuously impressed by the breadth and depth of its feature set. The latest release comes with nested spaces, which let users organize their content even more easily than before.
They have access to every information they need in real time !
XWiki is a powerful development palftfrom for colaborative apps, It takes the concept of a Wiki and extense it from text collaboration to code and funtionality collabortion.
