How to use the wiki for collaborative writing and knowledge management in GroupCamp
The wiki is a collaborative writing tool which allows all project members to work on the same project documents. The wiki can therefore serve as a project intranet where you can work on project documentation, statements of work, or meeting minutes. The wiki’s editor allows you to create links between pages to make which makes it easy for project members to browse through pages.
Once a project documentation is finalized it can be exported either as a word document or in HTML format. You can either export the current wiki page or all the pages in a project wiki. The Wiki’s revision management tool allows project members to compare different revisions of a wiki page.
You can easily see what parts of a document were updated. The revision management screen also allows you to see the project member who updated each revision and you can restore a previous revision of a wiki page.
The Wiki includes an auto-save mode and users are prompted after each update to signal the changes made as a major revision. GroupCamp’s wiki also includes a lock mechanism which presents a warning in case 2 project members edit the same wiki page at the same time. Please note that you can also reference an existing file in a project from the wiki.
