New to the Library: Classifieds form and workflow


December 29, 2009 1:54 pm





Online classifieds are increasingly more popular than their newsprint cousins. Few have avoided their influence. The Novell Teaming Library has developed a hosted classified solution that can take the place of a public and visible folder in teaming. Whether you work at a school, government body, or technology company you are surrounded by people. This form and workflow gives the user a place to talk about their next great event or garage sale or simply post an ad for that rusted out ’68 VW bug out back. This simple and practical form and workflow will find a place in your organization.

The form is similar to other very popular web hosted classified solutions you may be familiar with. It requires some essential information and allows for up to 4 photos of the object or event being advertised. The workflow will sort the entries by category (Electronics, Auto, Video Games, etc). You may also create a workspace with a separate folder for each category and configure the workflow to filter entries into their respective folders. Another effective solution is to create filters on workflow states. This will allow you to view ads by topic at the click of a mouse.

Entries left 30 days will be flagged and a notification will be sent to the entry creator (originator of the ad) requesting action be taken (price reduction is recommended). Then it continues on until the seller marks the item sold.

This is a great way to advertise where ever you’re using Teaming without cluttering up unnecessary workspaces. If you have any suggestions for modifications that can be made to future versions of this form please send them to
