What is WebDav and how can it help you?

So, as promised, here's more on the latest release of SamePage version 4.3. If you're not technical, you likely won't know the meaning of WebDAV aka Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning. Consider it a cool new tech term to show off with to your friends.

What's important is what WebDAV support does for SamePage 4.3 users. Basically, if you want to edit a Word, Excel or Powerpoint file attachment that is located in your wiki, you no longer need to open the attachment, download it to your system, edit, save and then upload to your wiki. What a relief, right?

Now, you can edit attachments without explicitly downloading them. You can get the same "one-click edit and save experience" for files that you are accustomed to with all other wiki pages. The changes you make are saved directly the server.

Aside from saving you some time, energy and effort, this creates a more simple environment for collaboration and document management. Especially for our customers and prospects looking for knowledge management solutions, this is really an important product enhancement.

Watch this SamePage video which talks about this feature. If you're not yet a customer, sign up for a 30-day free SamePage trial.
