The user dashboard in Alfresco Team can be customized with a variety of useful features, which are packaged as dashlets that can be arranged on screen as desired.
Alfresco Team is a package of powerful collaboration tools that can be quickly deployed for a small workgroup or pilot project, but one which can easily scale to fit one's needs. It works well with the Alfresco Mobile tools for Apple iOS, which themselves open up entirely new ways for businesses to capture and use images and sound. Alfresco Software is attempting to address the small and mid-range customer with Alfresco Team, based on the Alfresco Enterprise architecture used by nearly 2,000 businesses, including Home Depot, Michelin and the United Kingdom's National Health Service. It can be deployed in a traditional premise-based environment running Linux or Windows, or on an Amazon EC2 instance. Alfresco Team offers solid enterprise-class content management features including version tracking and granular user access. Coupled with the Alfresco Mobile tools for iOS, which allow the capture of audio, still images and video, Alfresco Team offers a first-class collaboration environment that meets the budget of the smallest organization.
