LiveLink Comparisons

Livelink is a content management system which means it deals with documents in other formats such as MS Word. The best way to think about Livelink is to think of it as a browser based file management system; i.e., a set of documents in folders and subfolders. One advantage of this form of document management is that the documents are fully content searchable. But they remain separate documents in their original format. They are not editable from within Livelink but must be downloaded first, changed, and then uploaded as a new version.

Livelink provides some other functions such as discussions and workflow but its real strength is document management.

There is no wiki component of Livelink or at least no wiki in the standard product. There may be a wiki add-on somewhere but I am not aware of one.

  • Thanks Bob. Of course TWiki attachments are also separate documents, but any search of content has to be done by an independent search engine. -- JohnTalintyre - 14 Oct 2003

What is nice about LiveLink is, that from every 'object' in the database most context-sensitive options can be selected. With the ever growing number of options in TWiki, a per-topic context-sensitive options menu might also be a good idea. Then all the edit, history, raw text etc options can be relatively well hidden untill needed.

The following screenshot shows the menu in action:
