Collaboration means working with others to do a task and to achieve shared goals. It is a recursive process where two or more people or organizations work together to realize shared goals.
Collaboration by means of Cloud Storage is file centric and is focused on the exchange of files, either to individuals or groups of collaborators.
XXL Cloud allows the creation of Groups, which can be initiated by any member of the XXL Cloud Platform. Groups are invite only, so a Group Administrator has to invite members individually, and all members have to have a XXL Cloud account.
Once a Group is set up, Shared Libraries can be created or already existing libraries can be linked to the Group. Libraries which are shared in a group can bear various properties, such as Read Only or Read/Write access.
In some occasions you might even want to protect libraries with a password which only the members who know the password can access.
Additional collaboration features include Group or Private Messaging, as well as an address book in which colleagues or friends can be included.
For the demanding users a Wiki is included, which allows creating documentation for any purpose the user decides it is fit.
Files can also be shared to any person on the internet. There are also various properties on shared files, which include password protection, or time limited shares.
