Colligo Reader for SharePoint
Colligo Reader for SharePoint enables users to easily download content from SharePoint sites to your laptop so you can access the content offline, rather than having to copy files one by one through a browser. Colligo Reader is free for individual use.
Document Libraries & Lists:
With Colligo Reader, you can access document libraries and lists offline. Reader connects to SharePoint using standard web services and site permissions, then downloads the content to a local file store on your Windows® file system, preserving document links.
- Take document libraries offline
- Get read-access to documents and forms
- View both custom and standard lists
- Access events, issues, links, contacts, announcements, tasks, and agendas
Views & Metadata:
Content is organized using the same standard and custom views defined on the server. Variables ([Me] and [Today]) enable offline views to change depending on the user and date. Multi-value lookups and important metadata are also supported.
- Enhance usability with SharePoint views offline
- Sort information using metadata offline
- Support multi-value lookups
Users can select specific documents, libraries, or entire SharePoint sites. Content selection can be initiated within Colligo Reader, using the “Connect to Reader” button in Internet Explorer, or with a simple drag-and-drop from the browser. Content is kept up to date with automatic or manual synchronization.
- Select documents, libraries, or entire sites
- Synchronize automatically & manually
- Find content with Windows Desktop Search
Super Simple to Use - Thousands have started using Colligo Reader without reading the QuickStart Guide. In many cases, users find the application easier to use than SharePoint itself. The UI is very intuitive, borrowing many visual elements from applications like Microsoft® Outlook® and Windows Explorer.
Colligo Reader is a client-only application - no server modifications are required. The install package is just 5MB in size, so it takes less than a minute to install (no license keys are required).

Perfect for Office 2003 users
Definately worth deploying, its free, easy to use, what else do you need? Its the perfect Offline content reader for SharePoint. If you need to sync the docs then take a look at the contriibutor product. Its around $125 per user, but well worth it!
Go Get It
Superb package that allows you to take SharePoint anywhere you go.
If your company has SharePoint and even just one laptop user you must have Colligo Reader. All our clients who have tried the download are still using it now.

Great End-user tool
One of my biggest hassles is being able to easily work on my documents on the road, without internet connection. This product is a great tool…It saves me every time. Took may be 20 minutes for initial synchronization with my PC. The file’s download process is completely automatic; this way you can avoid redundant copies of files. Though with this version you can’t sync your files back to SharePoint, uploading files I made changes to when you login works great for me.
Even if your company is not willing to spend money on the Contributor, definitely tell all your users to download an individual version of Colligo Reader – you will always have your files (calendars, events etc, with all metadata) handy. Great product, love it that it’s free, and helped me avoid going thru our procurement channels.
