Do you want to add a custom form (however complex and whatever number of pages) on your site at the speed of thought? Look no further than Tiki Trackers.
With fields like images, dates, files, custom lists, and more, Tiki makes the creation of structured content a pleasure — while other CMS applications just leave you with a bad headache. And Tiki accomplishes this with simple, on-screen, browser-based configuration. There's no need to code even a single line.
Content in Trackers is searchable automagically. In addition, Trackers are sortable, embeddable in any other content page, and secured with Tiki's robust permission set.
- And you can interlink them
- And you can navigate through a life-cycle
- And you can use them to create wiki pages using a standard, common style.
When it comes to creating, managing, and deploying structured content, Tiki Trackers are a powerhouse. There's no doubt that Trackers are one of the most powerful and versatile features in Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware.
When used to collect, store, and organize data, they rock. "Under the covers," you can think of trackers as a miniature database or spreadsheet that runs inside your Tiki site. With Trackers, you can easily build a "Contact Us" form, a customer relationship system (CRM), or anything in between.
Let's just have a look at some use cases:
- A simple "contact us" form:
- A searchable dataset:
- A database of reference guides:
Starting in version 4, Trackers could handle complex formatting, in addition to simple tables. With "Pretty" Trackers, developers can apply Smarty templates or use wiki pages to display Tracker output in any way imaginable. And in version 7 (planned for April, 2011), the Tiki Community plans to begin moving Trackers to the next level, providing improved performance and even tighter integration with other Tiki feature.
