I am about to begin developing a brand new intranet for our institution and I will probably do it in ExpressionEngine, unless I am convinced otherwise...with the help of the responses I receive.
I know the basic features any intranet should possess; calendar, room reservations/scheduling, document uploads, announcements, photo gallery, etc...
What I really want to hear from you all is a list of features that would make up the best faculty/staff, student intranet.
The other day, someone mentioned there is a portal that allows an alert message to display on their intranet page once they log into the portal/intranet, making them aware of anything from poor grades & attendance to an overdue bill.
Features like that, are ones that I am looking for, features that are specific to higher education.
Respond back with a list of great features.
Also, any portal/intranet systems (preferably built on php, but not necessary) that you feel are great and list the features it possesses.
In advance, thank you for taking the time to read this.
