Additional Notes

All content is personalised according to the object's access rights and according to the user's memberships to organisational units and configurable other profile variables.

LINCHPIN's editor is very capable and supports drag and drop operations for any file type.

LINCHPIN is accessible via web browser on a smartphone or a tablet. However, when using a mobile device a user sees a different layout with different content as in the desktop browser. The hierarchical navigation for example is not available. LINCHPIN offers to switch to the desktop view but there is no scaling or change in resolution. So it is almost impossible to navigate and to see content or edit content in an appropriate manner at all. //Seibert/Media currently does provide a mobile app.
