Hi,

I'm new to Alfresco and I have been tasked to begin out document management system using Alfresco.  We currently store a majority of our documentation on our internal shared drive.  This obviously is very limited with versioning and controlling document history and assuring the current document uploaded is the most up-to-date.

So, while playing around with Alfresco I've come up with a few question:

***  Is there a way, when looking at a file you can download the file, make your changes and upload it directly back to server?  I'm looking for something similar to sharepoint with the ability to check-in/check-out. But the file isn't lost in your computer directory. 

*** Do the users mainly use the Alfresco Share dashboard or the "My Alfresco" more often?

***  Which book would be the best from the

would help someone who doesn't have java a developer background establish a good document management system.



Thanks for your help and look forward to your replies. :D
