Team collaboration

To foster a culture where information is shared and updated regularly, reducing overhead and bottlenecks is key. Foswiki allows team members to easily change any page to keep its info up to date. User authentication and version control lets you recover from inadvertent changes — keeping your data open for changes enables everyone to combine and build upon the network of content within Foswiki.

Knowledge base

Corporate/community knowledge is a vital asset for organizations to preserve. Foswiki provides a framework to store, refresh, and organize the hard-earned information that you have gained. Distinguish yourself from others by collecting and organizing your techniques, procedures, processes, experiences, and other important data.

Project management

Combining and collecting information from many sources is often required for project management. Foswiki allows tagged data and meta-data to be associated with pages and has an advanced search mechanism to perform database-like queries. The results can then be formatted using macros in complex ways. Everyone can update one's own status information that can get automatically rolled up and reported.

Document management

Information repositories can easily become an unmanageable tangle. Foswiki helps you keep your information organized by categorizing your pages using meta-data and tagged data, and with forms to support workflows. Foswiki also provides ways to customize the display of your content, for viewing via the web or for printing.

Social applications

Combining data from multiple sources is leading to new modes of interaction. Foswiki has many extensions that support ways to display information from your wiki and other web sites in many useful ways.
