How is BSCW intended to be used?

BSCW is a groupware application. Users share workspace folders which contain objects. These objects can be files, discussions, notes, calenders etc..

  • To start with BSCW a user has to create a workspace. Then he invites users to this workspace. These users can be already registered or not yet registered. Invitation is done via user name for registered users or via email address else.
  • After invitation the shared workspace folder appears in the home folder of the invited user. The invited user may now access the shared workspace.
  • If a user leaves a group he may simply be removed from the list of workspace members.
It's also possible to define special access rights for members invited by using the built-in role based access control system. Please read the documentation for more details.
