Product 2.0: Traction Software Introduces Improved Enterprise 2.0 Wiki Tool

Nov. 14, 2007
Upgrade to TeamPage offers new GUI, moderation, collaboration options.

TeamPage 3.8 brings new levels of ease of use to linking, moderation, and cross-organizational collaboration, matching Enterprise 2.0 requirements when deploying wikis of any size. TeamPage can now show the 'latest stable version' of wiki pages without inhibiting the ability to edit collaboratively and reach consensus, taking the pain out of refactoring and sharing pages across wiki project spaces, and making it easier to follow compliance requirements and do blog-style communication in the same space and context as wiki-style page editing.

About the New TeamPage:

  • Links are the heart and soul of wikis, and this new TeamPage makes linking accessible to non-techies and techies alike. Traction now offers the easiest, most intuitive GUI for making forward links to new content as well as links to existing content or external sites. The same GUI also makes it simple to link to Traction "sections" and other label/tag driven views and link to files attached to article pages or stored in Traction's built in web share folders.
  • Users now have a place to look when they discover that a new page has taken over an old page's name. Traction will introduce the first forward linking feature set with full referential integrity, name aliasing and cross-wiki project name aliasing, all combined with page name history (in addition to page content history).
  • TeamPage project spaces now support integrated blog and wiki style collaboration using a combined name space, or can enforce a wiki style unique name space in any or all projects.
  • Collaborate while keeping the "latest stable" version visible.
During the often knotty process of refactoring a wiki -- which may require performing a set of related edits over many pages -- authors can collaborate on changes over time without disturbing the "latest stable" view of the wiki. Page changes can be published later, when all the pages are ready -- or have been reviewed and approved. Authors can see, search and review the combined effect of all drafts for collaboration, or flip back to see and use the latest stable view of all pages. New permissions allow control over who can publish drafts, edit drafts, read drafts and even lock pages.
