f2w helpdesk is a Web-based helpdesk package. It allows requests to be categorised to an arbitrary level of detail using a expert-system-like question and answer method. Advice and problem-specific information can be associated with the request categories, thus building up a knowledge base to speed the resolution of frequently occurring problems. Users can also add their own tasks, thus using it as a todo list or for workflow within teams, and notes can be added to each request at any time.
Formulator is a flexible, extensible framework for the creation and validation of web forms in Zope. Web forms can be created with a web-based management interface. When a form is submitted, many common validations, such as testing for required fields or certain types of input, can be automated.

zOpen Directory lets a Web site developer integrate all of the content of the Open Directory Project (ODP, Dmoz.org) into a Zope website. Since zOpen Directory works by downloading and parsing data from Dmoz.org only when such data is needed, there is no need to download the entire database. The tool is conveniently internationalized, and it features automatic language detection and the ability to run different versions in bilingual or multilingual Web sites. Currently supported languages include English, Basque, Spanish, French, Dutch, Catalan, German, and Italian.
XPath Methods allows XPath queries on ParsedXML XML documents (and possibly other DOM implementations) in Zope. XPath is a relatively simple but still quite powerful query language used to address portions of XML documents. When you call an XPath Method you will retrieve a set of DOM nodes which you can then display in a Web page using DTML or ZPT, or which you can issue operations upon using, for instance, Python scripts.
NuxUserGroups is a Zope product that adds the notion of groups of users. Groups provide a level of indirection in the user -> roles mapping, which provides greater flexibility. The groups are defined and managed in the User Folder. They are then used at the local roles level, where you can define an additional mapping of groups -> roles, thus giving the users who belong to these groups additionnal local roles. A workgroup can be defined simply and managed in a centralized manner.
NuxDocument is a Zope product that represents generic documents by using plugins to convert native productivity suite formats to HTML (for viewing or previewing in a regular browser) or to plain text (for indexing). With the appropriate external conversion programs, NuxDocument currently provides support for MSOffice (DOC, XLS, and PPT), OpenOffice (a.k.a. StarOffice 6), RTF,and PDF formats.
