SimpleEdit – Making editing files Simple since 2014

Dorien JorissenDorien Jorissen

Have you ever cursed at the Online Edit functionality in Alfresco, because it couldn’t save your file due to the loss of internet connectivity? Have you ever wondered why you couldn’t have a simple way to edit non Microsoft Office documents like images, PDF files, LibreOffice documents, etc.?

Well, now you can!

Introducing SimpleEdit

SimpleEdit allows you to edit any type of file with a simple click. When you’re done, SimpleEdit saves the file back into Alfresco without hassle. This works for Photoshop files, videos, … well, as I said before, every filetype!

You can even work offline. You don’t have to be afraid anymore to continue working on that beautiful design or important contract while on the road. You can even just take a break, close all those documents and resume your work the next day. When you’re ready to push your masterpiece to Alfresco, SimpleEdit will be too.

Check out the following video for a quick intro:

If that isn’t easy, I don’t know what is… 😉

SimpleEdit – Technical information

SimpleEdit consists of 2 parts: an Alfresco module and a desktop app. The Alfresco module can be installed by an Alfresco administrator and is very straightforward. Installing the app on the user’s PC takes only a couple of clicks. Even SimpleEdit’s installation is as easy as 1 2 3.

SimpleEdit works with Alfresco 3.4.x and 4.x and will work on Alfresco 5.0 upon it’s release as well.
