Money well spent. I have rarely needed support over the years but have found the fast response and fixes from the team invaluable.

Documentation

I always hit the DOCman documentation and forums first for little reminders during upgrades and find it easy to use and in 'plain english'

Value for money

DOCman is one of my 'must have' extensions. I am happy to pay the annual subscription fees to install on multiple sites with great support.

I used this to: DOCman is my go to document manager for all sites that I design and develop. From small sites to large ones DOCman never lets me down. I primarily use it for PDF files but also JPG, PNG and PPSX when required. I love the massive improvements and flexibility of DOCman 2.x

A fantastic tool!

Functionality

Document filing, document management, document control, document search & document visibility control

Ease of use

Extremely easy to use! Works very well! The metadata is the key! The group management tools are very good & improving all the time.

Absolutely fabulous!

Documentation

Very good! I understand everything I read & I don't feel I am missing any subtitle feature which is there for my use!

Value for money

Well worth every penny!

I used this to: Document management & document delivery to those who are privileged to use the documents. DOCman's ability to use Joomla! rights management gives me granular control or group control.

Support is awesome!

Functionality

It is an easy to use system providing the ability to organize large amounts of documents into specific categories for easy/organized access.

Ease of use

I am a novice user to open source, Joomla!, and obviously DOCman. I was able to figure this extension out based on trial and error.

Support

The support of the DOCman extension is wonderful. Everyone is patient and helpful. I am located in the U.S., so response time is longer.

Documentation

There is documentation, as a new user, I sometimes wished I could understand it better however, with more experience, its getting easier.

Value for money

I think the value is there. Its true test will occur when we complete an enterprise-wide system with several thousand documents.

I used this to: Enterprise-wide product documentation library for employees/customers. I'm hoping it will accommodate several thousand documents easily. This task has not been completed yet, as we need to configure it to work with active directory and migrate several thousand documents.

Superb service

Support

Our website developed a problem. Excellent response solved the issue (which proved not directly the fault of the extension). Great service.

I have subscriptions over a number of years, but not always renewed. Tenewal this time to gain access to support was money very well spent.
