Key Features

The MindLink Products come with a range of functionality. As an administrator, the configuration and setup required for functionality in your deployment will vary - some functionality comes by default while others must be enabled and configured. The MindLink documentation site focuses on functionality requiring setup, configuration or at least enabling/disabling by administration - see the Product Quick-start Guide for the user-facing behaviour and functionality.

This is an overview of the key features. The Configuration details can be found under the Install & Configure section or through the links in the Product(s) column.
