Log in to a SharePoint site 2. Browse to a file I want 3. Check it out 4. Edit it (*using QuickOffice Pro, sold separately) 5. Check it back in - Without reading any documentation Colligo • Biggest strength is synching offline content • Usability is not as good as it could be • No check-in check-out feature Colligo – Site Sites Colligo - Browse Browse View Files Colligo - Edit Editing Synching Colligo – Final Review • Best for “read-only” offline synching • Checking the file in and out was not integrated well into the experience and caused some usability issues • Because of the synch settings, I was editing an older version of the doc. Filamente – Quick Review • Similar to Colligo • Could check the file out but could not determine how to check back in. Caused some usability issues • Does have integration with Dropbox SharePlus (Infragistics) • Integration points with SP editing features are solid • Synch settings a bit more intuitive • Good support for questions!
