Encryption for Documents, Passwords, and Internal Blogs

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

LuxSci’s WebAide collaboration tools enable storage and sharing of all sorts of information through LuxSci’s web site, e.g. address books, calendars, tasks, blogs, files, password libraries, links, notes, and more. These tools allow online access from anywhere and fine grained sharing with selected users, or groups of users.

The items that typically contain the most sensitive information are internal Blogs, Document storage, and Password Libraries.  These items are, of course, saved in a secured database and backed up, like all other WebAides. However, for these sensitive items, LuxSci has special optional encryption options that provide both enhanced security and finer grained access control.

Improve Your Workflow: Free Notepad Widgets and “Send To”

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Take notes on the fly; have them auto-saved; send them where you need them easily.  That’s what its about.

All LuxSci users can add “Notepad Widgets” to the “Workspaces” that they have once logged into the LuxSci web interface.

Simple: Click on the notepad area and start typing.

  • Your input is auto-saved – no need to remember to save changes
  • Use plain text or HTML notepads for simple or more complex notes
  • Share your notepads with other users (by sharing the Workspaces they are in) — allow others read-only or read-write access
  • Works great even if multiple people are editing the same notes at the same time — everyone’s changes are automatically merged and propagated to everyone else’s screen.

News Feeds Widget: RSS+Twitter+Blogs

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

LuxSci has added a new Widget to its inventory of pre-defined Widgets available to all users — the “Multi-Feed” Widget.

With the Multi-Feed widget, you can specify an arbitrary collection of news feeds from diverse sources and have them be all downloaded, sorted together by date, and displayed to you as an aggregate list of news items in your Workspace.

The Multi-Feed Widget supports:

  • RSS Feeds
  • Twitter update feeds (showing the tweets of everyone that you follow on Twitter)
  • LuxSci WebAide Blogs

In the future, other feed sources will also be supported, such as facebook.

Blog and Email QuickCheck Widget Updates

Friday, October 30th, 2009

LuxSci had made several improvements to its Widgets:

  • Users can now make new entries in Blog widgets using either plain text or HTML editor modes.  Which should be used is now configurable as a Blog Widget property.
  • WebAide-based Widgets and RSS feeds now all have an optional “maximum height” property.  Use this if you would rather the widget have an internal scroll bar and be shorter, rather than not scrolling and showing all applicable entries.
  • The Email “Quick Check” widget now auto-checks the subscribed email folders every 2 minutes and updates the display of how many new and unread messages are in each of these folders.

Updated Blog and Address Book Widgets

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

LuxSci has released some updates to its WebAide Widgets.  These include:

  • Search your address books quickly right from your Address Book Widgets using new integrated AJAX-based search functionality.
  • Create new Blog entries right from your Blog widgets.
  • Blog widgets now support automatic updates and paging through all of the entries in the blog.
  • Custom HTML Widgets now contain a “notes” field where you can save information on where you get the custom HTML and how to edit/update it later.

Widgets keep getting more flexible.  Soon to come:  creation and sharing of additional Widget workspaces!
