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.
OIO is a Web-based metadata/data management front-end which is built using Zope and works with Postgresql. No programming is required to build and manage Web-forms or to perform data mining/analysis on the collected data. It is in production at the Harbor/UCLA Medical Center for clinical outcomes management and research data. Forms created with OIO and hosted on any OIO server can be downloaded as XML files. Once downloaded from the "Forms library" and imported into an OIO server, the necessary database tables are automatically recreated and the imported forms become immediately available to the users of that OIO server.

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.
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.
Fle3 is a Web-based learning environment. More specifically, it is a server program for computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). The Fle3 Knowledge Building tool allows groups to carry out dialogues, theory building, and debates by storing their thoughts into a shared database. While knowledge building, groups may use knowledge types (also called thinking types) to scaffold and structure their dialogues. Fle3 WebTops can be used to store items such as files and notes, organize them in folders, and share them with others. The Fle3 Jamming tool is a shared space for collaborative construction of multimedia data.
