  • People can be dynamically used to filter lists using query keys
  • Navigation will only show people that apply to other filtered items (such as content type)
  • Lists can be filtered by people

  • Add custom "bylines" and custom labels for non-standard attribution of people
  • Tokens allow for using data for people on lists, details templates, and related content
  • Ability to add and assign people as necessary "on-the-fly" rather than taking away from the item that is being managed

"Atlantic Webfitters' clients save many thousands of dollars by completely avoiding the purchase, maintenance, continual replacement and operational support of servers. And they gain access to top of the line software such as SQL database technology, intranet modules for office productivity and content management software, all for a small monthly fee.

Additionally, Atlantic Webfitters customers have eliminated the cost of paying programmers to make changes to their site, saving many more thousands of dollars each year to maintain what are frequently very simple business sites that have only a fraction of the functionality offered by Atlantic Webfitters' suite of module choices."
