Features of Open Atrium 2.0
Discussions, Notifications, & Messaging
Atrium values communication and discussion as the cornerstone of good collaboration and knowledge sharing. Discussions in Atrium can be restricted to as few as two people or opened up to the whole organization, and can be restricted based on a user’s projects, teams, or organization membership. Users can subscribe to specific discussions and communication through the notifications feature, too, making it easy to keep up with what’s most important.
For organizations building intranets, wikis, and knowledge management sites, Atrium allows for the simple storage and sharing of documents within groups or to the global organization. Atrium comes standard with the ability to attach and store files, and have documents assigned to specific discussions and groups. Upcoming features for Atrium may include integration with other popular knowledge management tools like Google Docs and Alfresco.
Multi-site and Microsite Capability
Open Atrium’s structure allows organization to quickly and easily build a group or project site, complete with its own dashboard, look and feel, widgets, and functionality. The flexible theming capability allows organizations building externally facing “web portals” with Atrium to create a unique look and feel for each sub-site, all tied to the main site.
Open Atrium features a robust access control system, outperforming any other open source solution by providing administrators full access control and allowing integration with identity systems like LDAP. Content can be restricted to sub-sets of the project team; Information can be shared globally or to restricted groups; and communications can take place among larger communities or highly classified teams.
Responsive and Mobile Ready
Atrium’s theme is built using Bootstrap, a front-end framework using responsive CSS that allows content to be ready for multiple screen sizes, out of the box. Over two dozen cross-browser, responsive layouts and several responsive image styles are included to aid in site building and allow your site to work seamlessly on mobile devices.
Atrium 2.0 is built on Panopoly, a Drupal base distribution that offers drag-and-drop customization of pages and content. Easily switch layouts, change styles, and add generic widgets to display text, images, links, maps, submenus, video and spotlights across your Atrium site.
Atrium 2.0 is built with extension in mind. Custom functionality is added via plugins instead of as bundled, included code, keeping the platform lean and light, and allowing users to plug in what they need, and not be burdened by unnecessary add-ons. Integration with existing software systems with established APIs.
Above all, Open Atrium 2.0 is based in Drupal, completely open source, and fully flexible and customizable.
