Elium's key concepts

The fundamentals of Elium

Elium is a platform in Saas, you can access it through a URL and you can only connect to it by invitation from the platform administrator. Once connected to the platform, you become a user of the tool. The purpose of a user is to share stories. "Story" is Elium's concept for posting content on the platform.

Elium is structured thanks to spaces and space groups (Enterprise & Corporate functionality). When a user posts content on the platform, he must select a space. All members of a space have access to the content posted by users.

Users can also place one or more keywords on content called tags. Tags facilitate access to information in the search. All content posted on the platform is indexed in full text in our search engine.

Structure of Elium

In Elium, there are three levels of downward navigation:

  • space groups,
  • the spaces,
  • the space tabs.

This structure is defined by the platform administrator. It allows you to define different access rights to a user and to structure the content on the platform. Elium structure

Definition of Elium's key concepts

  • Space: This is the physical place where content is shared. It can have different degrees of access and visibility (decided by the administrator)

  • Group[of spaces] : They are used to group together spaces of use or similar themes

  • Category: It is a set of tags from the same family. A category can have a list of suggestions and may be closed. The categories are defined by the system administrator of the platform

  • Tag: A tag is a term or set of terms applied to a content. It is an effective sorting and selection filter, which facilitates access to relevant information. Tags being collective and transversal to spaces (except exceptions defined by the administrator), they optimize the global search, through spaces. They offer a flat and dynamic structure of the platform in contrast to the folder tree which offers a fixed and hierarchical structure. Tags can fulfill several missions such as indicating the nature of the content (competitive intelligence or confidential note), using a unified vocabulary to qualify the subject of the content, etc.
