On Tuesday, October 11th, IGLOO will unveil some pretty cool features, notably enhancements to group collaboration, a recycle bin and the ability to add social bookmarks.
Firstly, we've also added some new capabilities for managing group spaces. A group space administrator can now create and manage a space, choosing from an IGLOO template, cloning an existing space or starting from scratch. This should accelerate the time it takes to form a new space.
Secondly, we've made recovering your deleted files that much easier. Now you can view and restore deleted files prior to being permanently removed from the system. Only administrators will be able to access this interface in the control panel and restore content back to its original location.
Thirdly, you can now save, organize and share useful links with your network and discover others. The bookmarks will reside in the userbar and will provide easy access to community-wide links (added by administrators) as well as personal links (added by the individual).
Other great improvements to IGLOO that you'll notice include an option to enforce the selection of labels and tags when creating content, the ability to set the index as the landing page for a wiki, as well as the addition of moderation to documents. We've also added new widgets to display a user's bookmarks and group spaces on a page.
Stay tuned for product release webcasts, with IGLOO's technical product manager Ivan Chevelev. It's your opportunity to pose questions directly to the product team.
