Tiki is the FLOSS Web Application with the most built-in features. And for even more features, please see: WikiSuite.
Unlike other projects that include a small set of features and then encourage users to install 3rd party add-ons, the Tiki community includes a large number of features in the main code base. This helps to ensure that when you upgrade, your existing features will not break. This also permits tight integration of the various features and makes it easier for you to re-use content across different features. For example, you can use the Wiki syntax throughout the application: in wiki pages, forum posts, trackers, and more. You can read more about the Tiki Model.

Subjective self-evaluation by the Tiki community
- Setup/admin UI: How easy / intuitive is to setup this feature?
- UI end user : Once setup, how easy / intuitive is it for the end-user? (was it worth it?)
- Stability: How many bugs left?
These are features that can apply to multiple content areas.
These are features that you can use in all text content areas, such as wiki pages, blogs, articles, and forum.
Features via Profiles
In Tiki terminology, a "profile" is a set of site configuration preferences and website item creation instructions that are applied as a group. The website profiles.tiki.org is the main repository for these.
Some profiles are simple, like a contact form, and some are more complex, to the point of being a new feature, in effect. These are crafted packages of wiki page content, site feature preference and other configuration settings and so on that can be imported to a Tiki site from a profiles server, and activated to implement new functionality at the site.
So Tiki Profiles aren't listed as pre-made features, but can be installed to, in effect, create a new feature at the site.
A partial list of Tiki Profiles includes:
- Collaborative Community
- Company Intranet
- Customer Extranet
- Customer Relationship Management
- Document Workflow
- Multilingual Glossary
- Membership Management
- Political Party Organization
- Shopping Cart
- Small Organization Web Presence
- Social Networking
- TikiPress MU

Note: All changes will be reviewed by a project admin and may be edited or modified if needed.

By now (if you read this far!), you must be thinking "Wow, what does this thing not do?". Please see "Major Features Missing In Tiki" for a list of features that are not a part of Tiki.
