Hi – thank you to the people who responded to my question on a cloud-based
community! Here are the answers I received:





Have you checked out basecamp? The 37 signals guys really know their stuff.

The standard these days is Basecamp.




Hi Kay,


Here is a similar question and answer I posted a while ago. It focuses on
graphic deliverables, but some of the tools may work for what you want:


QUESTION: Looking for a better way for clients to review and comment on our
work online


I’m envisioning a chat tool that would allow me to do the following:

• Display a Web page, graphic, or Flash animation on the Web.

• Allow a client to visually highlight part of it.

• Create a chat thread associated with the highlighted area.

• Support multiple chat threads for different highlighted areas.

• Spellcheck chat contents.

• Archive the chat thread.

Does anyone know of such a tool? It seems that Adobe CS4 has something built
in or there maybe something in an application lifecycle management (ALM)
tool like Rational Jazz. 



ANSWERS: I found some tools that do exactly what I want. Front runners are:


proofHQ (,

Highly polished, works with or without Basecamp


ConceptShare (,

Highly polished, works with or without Basecamp, Flash based


Cozimo (,

Promising but I’ll need to dig deeper to see if it has all of what I need


These are similar but seem to be missing core requirements:

Seems to only support static files.

Seems not have chat support, only notes.

More for conferencing. Doesn’t seem to support chat associated with a

Cannot really figure out if this is suitable without speaking to one of
their sales reps.





I would suggest

Conceptshare (
Zyncro (
TeamBox (
or of course GoogleDocs

Hi - I'd  like to be able to share UI designs with my client via an online
community. I'd be looking for something very simple, secure, reasonably
priced, and cloud-based.  I'd post screen shots, UML diagrams, stories, etc
and the client team needs to have the ability to comment and post their own
stuff. WIKI capability would be great.
Can anyone suggest some reliable online community products they've used?
I'll collect & summarize people's recommendations. 
Thank you -
