Getting your account setup right - Part 3

The final installment of "Getting your Account setup right" takes a look into two sections of the Refinder Account settings, Online Services and Recommender Services, which offer you powerful tools to connect Refinder with external content sources.

How we used Refinder for the redesign of Refinder

Designing a website typically involves a diverse set of stakeholders. The process between kick-off and launch is heavy on tasks like ideation, analysis, communication, opinion forming, discussion and decision making. We went through this process while redesigning the Refinder application. But on top, we used Refinder as the collaborative environment and communication platform to support the Refinder redesign project.

Getting your account setup right - Part 2

A few days ago I started posting about Refinders account setup.
Here is part 2 and it´s probably a bit more juicy, as I´m going to cover the optional connectors of Refinder.

Under "Download Connectors" on the Account Settings page, two separate pieces of software, the Refinder Outlook Connector and the the Refinder URL Handler are currently offered, which, once downloaded to your PC, greatly enhance the scope of Refinder.

Maybe it has been a while since you dealt the last time with your Refinder account settings. So it might be worth to have a look what has changed under the hood and to check out, how these changes enhance your Refinder experience. This post is the first of a three piece series aiming to evolve you from mystery to mastery of your account settings.

Two pieces of information from last weeks news feeds point towards some accelerated change in the social enterprise applications market.

When your team collects information for a project, you can get a good overview by using Refinder. Did you often experience chaotic collaboration when everyone sends emails about new information? Collections make it easy to collaboratively search information and find the right answers. This screencast shows what steps you can take to get started: how you can use semantic recommendations, search, and our web bookmarklet to collect information and share it with coworkers.

Jennifer Zaino features Refinder in an article published on Refinder builds on research findings about Semantic Web and knowledge work and brings them to collaboration scenarios.

Collections: Collect and Collaborate in Refinder

Collections are Refinder's primary tool for collecting and collaborating information. A collection is a group of things of any kind, from any source, from any user that has access to a collection. Think of it as a folder on your hard disk, but on steroids!
