Open Text Corporation said it is introducing new Livelink features that make collaboration easier, improve best practices and help project teams be more productive. The enhancements, introduced as part of Livelink 9.2, include expanded capabilities for team workspaces and a new interface developed from customer research on usability. Open Text is also introducing a new tool that lets communities of users share content with a single click and easily add information to the Livelink repository. Improved workspace templating allows customers to design detailed templates for different types of projects. Templating allows customers to assign standard components, content and structures to workspaces based on the type of project or team using the workspace. Open Text has also added a project overview page, which includes a status indicator to give users a quick update on the team’s progress, and new icon bars for quick navigation within a workspace. Livelink’s new user interface completely revises the look of Livelink, making navigation easier and allowing users to personalize Livelink for their needs. Livelink Companion lets users harvest and share information with others, as well as add information to Livelink to enhance its value as a knowledge repository. Once loaded, Livelink Companion adds a toolbar to the user’s Web browser and an application link that sits in the Windows system tray. www.opentext.com
