15:42 : project manglement
So, ive got a littel project i need to do for my father. I think a wiki is the answer.

Specs:
1. Indexed filing of documents (?20 headings)
2. Search facility
3. Ability to email documents from site directly to people
4. Passworded security to some parts of site
5. Automatic email notification of when drawings or documents posted on
site (possibly)
6. Project address book
7. Project calendar

Now i think either tikiwiki or Twiki could handle most of that. anyone got any suggestions or reccomendations?

TWiki can definitely do 1, 2, and 4 - 7, but I haven't tried "Ability to email documents from site directly to people" other than cutting / pasting or sending a URL. If you do know how to do this in TWiki, please let me know how.

TWiki also has a good plugin for producing pdfs. Don't know if you'd want this, but it's been really useful at work.

Ah, reading 5 more carefully - I'm registered to receive emails of when TWiki page content is altered, but not for when new or edited versions of attached docs (Word, Powerpoint, etc) are uploaded. I think Adam has said that MediaWiki can do this.

(Note to Adam: See?!? I am being completely rational and not at all evangelical and I think you should stop being mean to me about TWiki, SO THERE.)

TWiki is bad and wrong.
That's just for balance :)

you obviously need microsoft collaboration server or whatever it's called these days.

(if you fail to follow my advice, the next best choice is prolly twiki, but for extra bonus points for flufiness have a look at zimbra) (second time i plug zimbra today!!!)

you could also go with basecamp, hosted and 0-effort.
