Open Lounge™ is a simple and effective tool for business collaboration inside RedDot CMS. Download it here.

1. Easy to use.


The user interface of Open Lounge™ is self-explanatory. Its main function is to allow users to see who else is signed in RedDot and provides them with an instant messaging service.

2. Reliable and safe

Open Lounge™ puts barely any load on your RedDot CMS server. Its main processing happens on the client side. 

Open Lounge™ does not use any third party messaging server nor does it use peer to peer protocol. It only uses channels already opened to signed-in users on the RedDot CMS server. If your RedDot CMS server is confined behind a firewall, Open Lounge™ behaves as a good citizen should and no information packet is sent across the wall.

3. Installation is a breeze

No special run-time or application is required for Open Lounge™ to run. And the installation is that of the easy, standard issue RedDot CMS plug-in routine. 

You can consult your OpenText/RedDot CMS manual if you are not familiar with the few steps involved in installing a plug-in. The following is the gist of it:

  1. Download the plug-in zip folder.
  2. Unzip the folder and make sure you uncheck the "read-only" property that is applied to the folder by default.
  3. Move the folder into your \CMS\asp\PlugIns\ folder on your CMS server.
  4. Access the Plug-in Management Interface via Server Manager and import Open Lounge™.
  5. Log in CMS users can access Open Lounge™ from Server Manager main node, SmartTree main node, Administer Project Structure node and "Action Menu" in SmartEdit when a page is opened.
