After uploading photos/text, he can drag and drop photos and sticky texts to anywhere inside the board to change the things as per his need.

AJAX based chat room is also needed to chat among added colleagues. User will be provided various Rooms/Sub rooms categorized.

Another challenge was to implement AJAX based user rating module in Blogs/Video Blogs section. Here user can rate his colleague's blog using Five Star Rating System.
