Hi all,

We just announced the beta release of our web-based collaborative outliner.
You can read the announcement here: http://thinklinkllc.com/blog/18
And check out the outliner at http://thinklinkr.com

I’d like to particularly encourage you to try collaborating on an outline with someone. The happiest surprise of our alpha was how well collaboration works with an outline, as opposed to a free-form text document or a spreadsheet. The structure really leads to great exchange of ideas.

I’d love to hear your feedback.

Thanks for sharing this new outliner with us.

Many things work very well. Congratulations.

A couple of things didn’t go right (after just a few minutes of using it):

1- Printing shows collapsed items
2- Documentation and video makes references to columns, but these are apparently not yet enabled
3- Only 1 item at a time can be selected (i.e. moved, copied, etc)

Excellent start!

p.s. Web site is no longer responding. I guess too many users are watching the video… (Ah! the joys of on-line work!)

Another small problem: It doesn’t run under Internet Explorer. So much for being universally accessible!

I didn’t see a hotkey to move an item up and down among its siblings (e.g., in Ecco, alt-up or alt-down move an item up or down.  All in all, though, it looks very good and I am going to give it a try for my daily task list.

Well, the launch seems a little bit premature to me.  I could not find the column feature they discussed in their video.  Why tout a feature when it does not exist?

And, I am no fan of their feedback mechanism.  I have no idea how much information Get Satisfaction collects or publishes about me, so I have no interest in signing up with them.  Perhaps an internal feedback form would be a bit more customer friendly?

I wish them well, especially in light of Google Wave’s recent release.
