Description

Hi there everyone, newbie calling.

I work in a technical operations area. Currently developing the wiki as a wiki for operational staff across various areas but thought I would use some more of the functions that are available.

As an operations area there is a requirement for logs to be written daily by operation staff across different departments and to be e-mailed to management staff.

My idea is to give each department (5 in total) a separate blog. Only members of each department can write to their blog but any member of each department can read the other blogs. So far so good. By tagging each entry searches across blogs can identify faults across departments. This works perfectly and therefore preferable to a forum based solution as I need it to be as simple as possible for the operational staff.

However there is a requirement to print each log on a daily basis and ideally e-mail it to non-members (managers) possibily dependent upon tags. Obviously it is simple to print each separate entry but what I am looking for is a way of printing a 24 hour period of blog entries, or exporting them to a text file (word or e-mail body for example) to be distributed and printed. This is because there can be as many as 100 blog entries per day and it would be time consuming (and forest destroying) to print each one out individually.

Apologies if this is covered in a document that I have missed but I am still trying to absorb all the variables. I have also posted it in the forums to see if someone has any ideas with existing features or indeed using it in this way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Solution

Unfortunately I am not a coder so forgive me if this is naive.

Can there be an advanced search facility in the blog section to search for blog entries against tags (OK this is possible in the freetag area) and/or authors but more importantly and/or date/time range.

Once the results for a date/time search are displayed an option given to print all search results (in one document).

Am alternative would be to set up a newsletter that is emailed automatically at a definable time each day that contains all the blog entries for the previous 24 hrs (or user definable time period)

Another alternative would be to set up an RSS feed with the same user definables as above.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
