Document circulation with CuteFlow


Article from Issue 84/2007

The CuteFlow document circulation system supports cross-platform document exchanges. CuteFlow is easy to install and configure but still has a couple of weak areas.

No matter what size office you work in, a variety of documents will land on your desk every day. Many organizations have a system for sending documents to a team of participants on a circulation list. The document reaches one employee after another along a defined path. After all the participants have viewed the document, it is returned to the sender. At least this is what happens in theory, but what happens to the circulation if somebody is sick, on vacation, or simply not in the office? The old paper-based circulation systems often resulted in documents getting delayed in the shuffle. Several electronic collaboration systems are now available, but these systems are often too complicated for small teams. An open source tool called CuteFlow supports cross-platform document workflows. CuteFlow is an electronic collaboration tool modeled on the old paper-based circulation systems. The configuration and front-end of the PHP-based CuteFlow are fully web-based; a web browser and an email address are all you need.
