Hi,

I just spent the first evening reading about Alfresco since I'm currently looking for a web-based file-management-system for a new little company. It seem on a first glance that this application is very well-structured and user-friendly, that's why I got stuck here. However, I got two very basic questions I'd like to ask before I let our administrator install it on our server:

1. I read a lot about the fully automatic arranging/sorting of files. Is it also possible to just have a very simple folder-structure and use a standard webbrowser to browse through files? I like the idea of automatic filing for later use, but for now I guess that traditional method would suffice.

2. In the forum I read some statements that there is no permissions-system integrated in the open-source-edition. Is this true? I'd like users to have access only to specified folders or files, so they don't even see those they don't have rights granted for.

Thanks for your patience…

Regards,
Tarkadu
