Ok I’m looking for a documentation/team management system that I can setup and run. I’ve used Sharepoint and obviously this blog is hosted on WordPress. I have even installed a local WordPress server and have successfully enabled a blog.
Let me explain the situation here: At work right now we run dotProject to manage some of the documents the consultants use. But not many people use and it is very hard to search and find files, including the files you have posted yourself. Also since we are not using the project management functions the site is a little more then a file repository that no one uses.
I’ve been tasked to find some form of a solution to this. The first thing I thought had was to use Sharepoint as I have used it for team sites and documentation management. 99% of the engineers here use Microsoft Office, so I thought it would be a great fit. However there are some issues security wise, including the biggest being required VPN access to really get the best out of Sharepoint which at most client sites is blocked.
So I thought what about setting up a WordPress site, but I don’t know enough about WordPress to see if it will work the way I want it to. I would like to be able to create seperate “sites” for different projects or teams and upload documents, have discussion, and great search. Also different levels of access control would be great, so if I didn’t have the correct access, I wouldn’t even see the post.
Am I looking for too much out of wordpress and should be looking for something else, some other form of software???
