Building a Quick Solution with Alfresco Workdesk
Many customers think that Share is Alfresco. When they set out to meet their requirements, they tend to want to customize/extend Share rather than build an application to solve their problems. In this tutorial we will build out a simple application that does not fit nicely into the Share Collaboration mold by leveraging both Workdesk and the Alfresco content platform. We will show how Workdesk makes it easy to provide screens to create case files (containers for content) and then to create and manage the documents contained in those case file. Furthermore, we shall demonstrate how Alfresco Workdesk provides the user the right Business View (e.g. the right tools, functions, searches) and how the Alfresco Repository ensures that the users only have access to objects they are allowed to see.
We will demonstrate how Workdesk allows you to
- Create new case files,
- Create and manage content in a case file,
- Manage business roles around a case file,
- Browse and search for content.,
- Use folder rules in Alfresco to control access to case files.
