Gallery, File manager, CRM, Jabber, Openvz image
« on: January 11, 2011, 10:28:34 am »

Started up Feng about 48 hours ago, am tinkering with other admin users before moving towards a proper deployment. Some initial feedback other than the obvious of how well interconnected the software is.

1- Administrative tasks should not be visible in activity to all users such as : root created user xx

2- Allow root users to set the limit to filesizes in the administration section without having to edit config.php or another php file . Am sure there are other tiny tweaks requested that can be lumped together in one additional administration subsection.

3- A gallery type module , we have a lot of pictures we have to share sometimes and also sometimes have like 8 or 10 files that are part of ONE submittal for a portion of a project. It would be nice if each individual file did not have to be uploaded on its own (kind of like gmail uploader) or if one single line in list view could have all those files or pictures in one place. 40 pictures means 40 lines.........

4- CRM module: contacts are already there, email is already there, workspaces are already there, all that is needed is to be able to create leads/campaigns/and create updates for them. this is i am sure so close to already being available in the software, that some manual tweaking from my end could probably get the result we are looking for. althought i think if this feature was available out of the box people could get even more creative and build on it. i think this is the only main feature missing from making feng a complete solution. i own my own small business, we have an accounting server which is seperate, one for collaborative works (feng recently implemented) and one we are going to set up for CRM hopefully. I believe accounts server should be seperate but crm can be very easily included in this current structure, dont you think ? I know the idea has been shot down before, but including this would be more of a tiny hop rather than a leap.

5- A chat module would make things much much more interesting. In fact, as many people have workers sprawled across many geographic locations , often travelling also, a jabber incorporation could include voice/video chat.......

6- Openvz images on sourceforge: Will make adoption and image availability with vps hosting sites MUCH easier. I would say that is one of the areas that others have failed, and it mitigates adoption in the long-run.

Thanks for FO being what it is, one year ago I was straining to work with some of the other softwares that werent as feature rich, or mature I would call it, as 1.7.2.

2 - i think this is possible but only if the server is configured to allow php override

3 - a gallery would be really good, but about your second point, you can upload multiple files at once by zipping them and uploading the zip file. feng has a built-in unzipper (and zipper too) that allows you to do this. More info here: http://www.fengoffice.com/web/wiki/doku.php/documents#uploading_multiple_files

5 - there's a pretty big thread on that here: http://forums.fengoffice.com/index.php?topic=869.0
