Asbru Web Content Management v11 released

The Asbru Web Content Management system v11 for .NET, PHP and JSP/Java has been released. This version adds:
  • Collaboration Add-On module with new functionality for website administrators to communicate and to manage their work on the website:

    • Comments

      New "Comments" functionality is available on all web content management system administration pages through a right-hand panel where website administrators can post comments as notes for themselves and as messages to other website administrators. Website administrators can for example post notes on work that has been done and needs to be done, and website administrators can discuss and coordinate work to be done in the context of the actual website content. Each web content management system administration page has its own such comments board for comments on individual content items and users, and specific groups/types of content and users etc. Optionally, comments for all or specific web content management system administration pages can also be displayed on each website administrator's personal workspace in the web content management system.

      Configuration settings for the "Comments" functionality can be used to control if the comments panel should never or always automatically be opened and shown or if there are unseen or new comments. Optionally, comments can automatically be posted by the web content management system when content items are added, updated, published, unpublished and deleted. Optionally, comments can also automatically be deleted by the web content management system after a given period of time. Alternatively, "Comments" administration pages are available to view and manage all comments posted across the web content management system.

    • Projects

      New "Projects" functionality is available on each website administrator's personal workspace in the web content management system for website administrators to create project lists of tasks to be done. Each website administrator can create projects for their own personal use or shared with other website administrators. For each project a number of tasks to be done can be defined, and a number of project assets such as specific content items can be associated with each project and task. Common project management date such as category, status, priority/urgency, severity/impact, duration, start and end date can be assigned for each project and task. Projects are highly customisable with access to define the project task category, status, priority/urgency and severity/impact options for each project so that the projects functionality can be used for many different types of projects and tasks. Each website administrator's personal workspace in the web content management system gives the website administrator easy access to view and manage their own and shared projects, tasks and associated project assets content items.

      Configuration settings for the "Projects" functionality can be used to define the commonly used project task category, status, priority/urgency and severity/impact options for your organisation (with access for website administrators to customise the options for their specific projects).
