Collaborative sites

Collaborative sites are workspaces shared by several users. It is in these sites that all products/items/objects will be stored.

Several collaborative sites can be created (by department, by process, by customer, for internal projects) in order to organize the contents and manage access rights. Each user sees the sites and their contents according to his rights.

Access to the collaborative site

Access to the sites can be done from :

  • Sites menu bar in the top banner
  • the My Sites dashlet on the dashboard.

Rules for classification of collaborative sites

By default, beCPG offers the following sites:

  • Product in development (simulation) contains products in the simulation, to be validated and rejected states,
  • Validated products (valid) contains products in validated status
  • Archived products (archived) contains all products in archived status that are no longer used or marketed
  • Supplier portal (supplier-portal) contains all raw materials and suppliers, in referencing or updated at the suppliers.

Products are automatically classified into folders or sites via classification rules:

  1. By state (represented by sites)
  2. By type (raw material, finished product, supplier, project ...)
  3. By family
  4. By sub-family
