I did a comparison between the two tools when we got the Jive Curate tool. The comparison I did was with the version of 7Summits i was using at the time (i'm sorry, i don't remember which version it was). They may well have updated and have more functions now.
Here's what i found:
7Summits Curate Differences Action Type/Options Action Type/Options Key Differences, if any Select Source Space, Group or Project Select Source Space, Group, Project or Blog You can move a users blog in Curate, you can't in 7Summits Select Content Types Blogs, Discussion, Documents & Polls Select Content Types Discussion, Documents, Polls, Videos, Ideas You can't move place blogs or status updates Move All Content Moves all content from source (but only blogs, discussion, documents & polls) Move All Content Moves all content from source (but only discussion, documents, polls, videos, ideas) Move Specific Content Can be filterd by: Tags, Creation Date, Modification Date, Subject Keyword, Username, Category and Number of Page Views Move Specific Content Can only be filterd by: Tag Much less filters to help with choosing specific content Save Content Search Easily select content by saving a commonly used set of filters. Simply provide a name Save Content Search Not available Delete Selected Items Not available Delete Selected Items Available for mass deletion of outdated content Curate can mass remove content, 7Summits can't Moving content to target You can move content to another space, group or project Moving content to target You can move content to another space, group or project Add Tags You can enter the list of tags to add (separated by spaces): Add Tags These tags will be added to all selected items ; existing tags will not be affected You have to click "Edit selected items" Remove Tags Select options: "Remove all tags" or "Specify tags to remove". If specify is selected, you must enter at least one tag to remove: Remove Tags These tags will be removed from all selected items All or nothing Overwrite Tags Not available Overwrite Tags These tags will replace all the existing tags on all selected items (existing tags will be removed) Add Categories Select categorie(s). If the list is empty, there are no categories in the current or target space: Add Categories These categories will be added to all selected items ; existing categories will not be affected. (Note that a maximum of 25 categories are permitted.) Remove Categories Simply removes categories Remove Categories These categories will be removed from all selected items Overwrite Categories Not available Overwrite Categories These categories will replace all the existing categories on the selected items (existing categories will be removed) Remove # Tags Not available Remove # Tags Remove all tags that start with # Stream Notifications Not available Stream Notifications Show update in streams Convert categories to tags Simple convert existing categories to tags Convert categories to tags. Not available Preview of changes Not available Preview of changes Gives you a preview and tells you the action can't be undone, so a great additional step in case of mistakes. Confirmation of move Gives you a detailed confirmation. Number of content that's been moved, where it was moved from, where it moved too, if there were any errors. Confirmation of move Gives you confirmation of whats been moved, but only how many items, whether it's successful and if you had any errors
As we're on Cloud now, we no longer have the 7Summits tool on our Jive Community. I've been using Curate to mass move content and have found it to be sufficient for what I need to tidy up our community. The only minor annoyance for me is if you're moving a few hundred pieces of content, Curate will only let you select 100 items at a time, you have to click the next page button to select another 100 more items. It would be better if you could just select all from the first page.
I hope this helps.
Thanks, Dina! That's a fantastic comparison chart. Will definitely follow-up with 7Summits to see if there's any new functionality.
