JotSpot was also a downloadable wiki engine; which included a WYSIWYG wiki editor, e-mail integration, full text and attachment search, sharable web spreadsheets, numerous other features, and also offered a behind the firewall wiki appliance.[2][3] JotSpot[1] is the article for the main community feedback wiki, whereas JotSpot Developer[2] wiki is for the JotSpot developer community.
