Hi everyone, a friend and I are working together on a project. I'm wondering what you guys recommend for collaboration tools. I already know about Google Wave, you don't need to mention that. I don't want to use it even thought it's good, because I can't print or anything like that. Basically, you can only use it inside of Google Wave itself. So let me describe what I'm looking for.
There's a lot of emails going back and forth. So, instead of finding them in our inboxes, I'd like to store them easily in some of collaboration center, that can be accessed through the internet somehow. The other thing we'd share are other documents, audio files, video files, etc. Anything.
Now, my simplest solution so far is to use HFS and just create a folder where I can dump all the files in (even email message files). However, it would be better if the files can be viewed on the web also, rather than just hosting a bunch of files. Google Wave would be perfect if not for the printing and all that. Is there any desktop software that can do this, or help out in some way?
Another idea would be to share a MS Onenote notebook. But I haven't looked into that yet. From what I hear, the MS Office Live capabilities aren't full featured yet.
Google Docs? Possibly.
My ideal solution would be a software that runs on my desktop where I can drag my desktop files onto it and organize there. Then, I can sync it with something that sends it to a website. On the website, you can view the contents right there on the site itself. Even better would be if you can edit everything on the website. Add things, modify things. But desktop applications usually offer better options and features for that kind of thing, so it's not a must.
So, let me know what has worked for you, what you like to use, etc. Please don't tell me to google this or browse here. I'm doing that now. I want to know your experiences and what you have used and enjoyed.
