  • Extensive Content – Alfresco now includes more comprehensive information about web scripts, troubleshooting and extending Alfresco among others.
  • Single Documentation – As a single online repository, bookmarks take Alfresco customers to all the official documentation, which also means users have access to the most current and accurate documentation.
