We (the folks at Tataatsu Idealabs) run a SAAS application called CollabLayer.com to help you collaborate with your teams. CollabLayer is built for users like you. During this early preview stages CollabLayer is free after registration. Though it is too early to discuss pricing and possible levels of subscription, we are keen to get CollabLayer to as many users as possible. CollabLayer is designed to give you control and ownership over what document and related content is brought into the application, whom you choose to share it with and generally make your conversing and collaborating around a specific content context easy to accomplish. We would love it if you gain value from CollabLayer, during preview and after, by keeping your content related conversations in one place and give us feedback on what we could do to make the app better suit your collaboration needs.
However, we request you to be responsible in what content you upload and share with people you know. In particular, make sure that no prohibited items get uploaded into your account or get shared from your CollabLayer profile, even if it is to people whom you know (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).
A list of document types and content that are welcome on our collaboration service will be provided later.
If you should have a doubt that you document or content can violate our terms of service, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for confirmation and we will get back to you.
