Using Teamroom 8.5.2 – recommended documentation?

I am currently looking at the 8.5.2 Teamroom template and if it will fit well in our application portfolio. Getting the application up and running is not a problem. Allthough I have noticed some technical problem areas the information I am more interested in is about:

  • The purpose of the application. What is it’s objective and how we should position the application in our portfolio.
  • How should the application be setup and what are the options?
  • How can daily users use the application, what is in it, what are the options to use it?

A lot of information on Teamroom is available on the web, but not all is of recent date or distributed by IBM. For example:

Unfortunately such information is not shipped with the template. In case you know where I can find good, more recent information please drop a reference here.

    I think Teamroom is a really useful application but could do with better integration with the local name and address book re Subteams reflecting Groups in the n &a book but I suppose it is stand alone to allow users freedom to set up Teamrooms without any IT involvement.
    I am sure the lack of information from IBM reflects the fact that they make more money out of consultancy than anything else but there is enough here to be successfully up and running. If you ask the question why Teamroom I think the inbuilt calendar and the ability to create actions and reminders are particularly useful. I have not used the newsletter feature because it requires training of the users but I can see that some teams would really like this feature.
