Pulse version 3.0 is coming soon and we'd like to take this opportunity to highlight one of the many new features planned for Pulse - the Collaboration Dashboard.

Picture this,  you work for an enterprise in the position of "Profile Czar" - the senior developer who manages projects and tools amongst your team. You need to share your setup with your team so they can contribute code and styling to the project you are all working on.

How do you share your work?

Today you have several obvious choices; you could export your workspace on the company intranet then send an e-mail to co-workers informing them of where to find the new project; you could zip the profile and send it along in e-mail to your team with instructions, or you could direct folks to internal URL where the workspace lives.

With these options, it presents top-down approach to managing code distribution and sharing, but that's what developers are used to.

Now consider this, you're again at the stage where you need to share your workspace but instead of following the typical route you now download a free version of Pulse then open Eclipse or MyEclipse and do this - actually collaborate on projects in real-time.

Pulse 3.0 has the ability to allow authorized team members to contribute to one or more projects to be shared, thereby making it easier for teams to collaborate instead of one user always assigned as the "Profile Czar" dictating the setup. With a single mouse click, users get a summary of all the projects shared, can click once to promote one or more workspaces to teams, and can click just once to get a summary of projects not yet shared.

Simply, users of Pulse will have a clear understanding of what projects have changed and any new projects that need to be started in the true sense of collaboration. Furthermore, the Profile Czar has the ability to set permissions and restrictions on what projects users get to code,  in which workspaces they can operate and who has access to certain folders.

So  next time you're collaborating on a software  development project, download Pulse for free and get your teams synchronized in an effective collaboration environment.

And this isn't lip service. We use Pulse internally to manage our own award winning MyEclipse software and mobile development technology MobiOne.

Enjoy! And let us know what you think.
