SharePoint Team Services
A Web Site
Everyone Can Use
Using preprogrammed Web-authoring forms, you can instantly create a
full-feature Web site that your team can begin using immediately. Once the
site is launched, team members can add, edit, and delete information using
their Web browsers. Automatic hyperlink management maintains links to new
material, while templates protect the overall navigational structure,
individual page layouts, and design elements.
Preformatted forms let your team members contribute to the SharePoint Team
Services-based Web site simply by filling out lists. You'll find forms for
announcements, events, contacts, tasks, surveys, discussions, and links.
SharePoint Team Services also makes it easy to create custom lists by
building on existing forms, or creating new ones from scratch.
Microsoft Office XP Integration
Office XP works seamlessly with SharePoint Team Services, so you can save
documents from within any Office application and copy calendars and contact
lists directly from Microsoft Outlook® 2002 and paste them directly into
your team's Web site. Integration with Microsoft Excel 2002 means you can
also export lists and create pivot tables and charts to analyze information
or apply text formatting.
The Document Library feature of SharePoint Team Services provides a single
location for storing all your team's work. Transferring documents to the
library is simple—it just takes a Web browser. And when you assign templates
to your document libraries, you guarantee that all documents are consistent
and compatible. Powerful text-based search and a familiar folder view make
it easy to find documents in the SharePoint team Web site library.
SharePoint Team Services helps team members share ideas through
subscriptions and notifications that alert everyone to Web site changes.
Inline document discussions make it easy to collaborate on specific
deliverables without altering original documents. Discussion boards serve as
a central forum for specific topics and surveys, which are a useful way to
get targeted responses to key issues.
Once you've launched a SharePoint Team Services-based Web site, a simple
e-mail invitation serves to register team members to the site, and you can
assign different permission levels to each member depending on their role.
Date, time, and author stamping makes it easy to track member participation.
Web-based administration lets you manage user accounts quickly and simply
from within the browser.
Customize from a Web Browser
You'll find all the commands you need to adapt the SharePoint Team
Services-based Web site for your team. Simple drag-and-drop functionality
makes it easy to modify the home page; adding new pages and custom lists is
a snap, too. You can also create custom views of information by filtering
for specific criteria, sorting in a particular order, or showing and hiding
