Rather than views described above is there a component that includes more robust functionality like search,  add & delete files, etc?

"Smart" Page Navigator

Description to come...

Tagging

Description to come..Sakai has page navigation now.  The default for how many items to show on a page varies.  How many makes sense depends on context, how many total items, what type of items, etc.  The idea here is to make this navigator remember the users last setting (across sessions).  That way they set if for what makes sense given the current situation and it is persistent.  As things change for them they simply change the setting to meet current needs and again it's persistent until they need to change it again.  Currently this is a "one size fits all" default and many users have to change it every time the visit a particular page.

Tagging

Allow users to create their own folksonomy of files, content, etc.  The component should be smart about remembering and suggesting previously used tags to help users build up their own folksonomy.

The value of tagging for users is in searching and browsing by tags later so this functionality would need to go hand and hand.

Tag Cloud

Description to come...Give users a way to browse their tags (their folksonomy) to find files, content, etc. in their site (perhaps across sites).  The tag cloud should give users indication of how often tags have been used (ex. font size indicates relative frequency).

Description to come...

Attachment Manager

Description to come... Allow users to attach files to other content.  Files could come from user's personal computer, websites and apps, other sites and/or portlets.
