Online Collaboration Templates For Groove-based Projects

Groove Shared Spaces Templates pagename=Templates
= must have
Downloadable Interface Templates
(for Groove Workspace Version 2.5)

If a small project with a two weeks deadline is assigned to you, your work process is different from the one you follow in long-term projects. You keep documentation at a minimum, there are some tasks you leave out completely and there are others you handle in a completely different way. If you use an online collaboration platform to work with others on the project, some of the tools you use frequently in long-term projects are not relevant and just distract you. Probably you would prefer to see only those tools you really need at the moment.

Templates are a way to create Groove shared spaces quickly. They are pre-loaded with combinations of feature-rich Groove tools perfectly suited for a wide range of typical tasks, from one-off discussions to full-scale project management.

Just download the template and the shared space will launch itself. Invite your contacts to join you and you're off and running.

Groove offers the following four templates to rapidly create customized shared spaces within Groove Workspace with a preset and coherent set of task modules preloaded.

1) Document Edit and Review. This template offers a Welcome tool, a files tool and a discussion tool to facilitate support for sharing and editing of all sorts of files.

2) Short-term Projects. This template is intended to be used by teams that have to collaborate very efficiently in small projects and offers a Project Manager and a Calendar tool in addition to the tools of the Document Edit and Review Template.

3) Long-term Projects. This template provides also a Meeting tool that allows you to create agendas, invite participants, record meetings and track the outcome of meetings.

4) File Sharing. The File-Sharing template contains all the tools needed to store, organize, share, view, and edit computer files of all kinds, and to carry on discussions within the context of those files. This template includes the following tools: Welcome, Files, and Discussion.

All you have to do to customize your shared space is to download the desired template.



I find the Groove templates really valuable and I hope there will be more of them in the future.
