Strongly structured data is best kept in a database. Wikis are ideal for less structured information. Formalizing and structuring knowledge within an organization and thus making it easily communicable becomes quite simple with them. With its wikis, luckycloud offers an ideal complement to its file sharing functions. luckycloud's wikis make collaboration in teams even easier.
The success of Wikipedia proves: Wikis are ideally suited for encyclopedias. But not only for that. Because of the open and intuitive way in which information is recorded, processed and linked, they are also suitable for documenting other, less structured data. Work processes and instructions, manuals and FAQs are just three examples of applications in which wikis play to their strengths as practical knowledge containers.
luckycloud's wikis can be used equally for internal knowledge management and for publishing information intended for the general public.
Publishing a wiki is done with one click - and, if necessary, undone. Editing wiki contributions is easy thanks to the integrated
WYSIWYG editor, even for technically inexperienced users. Its powerful editing functions for texts, images and tables, however,
allow the creation of multimedia content. also the creation of multimedia pages go easily from the hand.
As targeted extensions of luckycloud's strengths in sync & share, wikis use all the features that make collaboration on files in luckycloud so convenient:
A luckycloud wiki is mapped in the luckycloud storage as an ordinary library. The owner of the wiki can therefore share it with other users for collaborative editing, copy and sync to local devices, and share individual posts with third parties for editing by using the native luckycloud features. A user who is familiar with the permission management of luckycloud will therefore also immediately find his way around wikis.
The menu item Published libraries in the sidebar displays wikis that have already been published and allows additional wikis to be published. A published library is accessible on the Internet under the URL of the luckycloud web interface, supplemented by the folder name of the published library (e.g. cloud.example.de/published/wiki).
Markdown files serve as containers for wiki contributions. These can contain text, images, tables, checklists and links. luckycloud wikis also support the linking of relevant files. Correspondingly linked files are displayed directly in the wiki page and can be accessed directly.
Editing of Markdown files is done via the integrated Markdown editor. Even inexperienced wiki authors will get along with it right away. Formatting changes can be can be executed - as in Office editors - via corresponding icons in the graphical user interface. The formatted text is displayed directly as such. The luckycloud editor can do even more: tables can be conveniently created and edited via wizards, images can be edited directly in the browser, and the version history of files can be displayed in color thanks to the integrated diff function. can be displayed in color thanks to the integrated Diff function.
As text-based documents, the Markdown files can also be displayed and edited without luckycloud's Markdown editor using simple text editors on all platforms. Formatting problems with cross-platform use, as they often occur with binary formats such as DOCX, do not exist with Markdown.
