A Short review on Collabtive

 

Well, first thing is I am writing blog. It is a good thing, is not it?

Today I want to talk about a Collaborative application. I am currently using it at my office. As we are communicating with our client so frequently and we need to keep him up to date, so we decide to use a collaborative application.

We are using collabtive (http://collabtive.o-dyn.de/)

Now it is a groupware, Collaborative software (also referred to as groupware) is computer software designed to help people involved in a common task achieve goals. One of the earliest definitions of “collaborative software” is, “intentional group processes plus software to support them.” [1]

Now it is an alternative of BaseCamp, written in PHP and JavaScript. It started in November 2007. And it is good for small to medium-sized businesses and freelancers.

The application is currently available in sourceforge and google code. This project is last modified at 19/1/2012 (Fresh enough!)

Now you can download and test it in your local server.

If you are using cpanel and which support softaculous, you can install it via softaculous.

Now if you don’t have this support in your cpanel, don’t worry, upload the application in your server. Install it manually.

I installed it via cpanel. Now here is the login page of the application


 

Now this is the landing page (called Desktop)


 

This application is really cool. Usefull if you are a freelancer, or you need to control your small to mid level projects.
