We’ve been talking for a while about Sharepoint, the Office 365 collaborative tool. But, what brings SharePoint to collaborative work ?
Sharepoint in a word
Sharepoint is a layer which helps to present and organize shared document and information by creating intranet portals and dynamic web pages without any particular knowledge.
Online team workspace
As explained in microsoft-office365.net, dynamic web pages can be used to create online team workspace. Though these pages, team members will put shared documents links of their online storage, and each member will be able to follow documents updates.
You can use Sharepoint to also create some wiki-likes pages, for documentation and project management.
Microsoft 365 chose Sharepoint for its simplicity. You don’t need any technical knowledge to create forms to manage day-off demands for instance, or meeting rooms reservations.
Every data published though Sharepoint is indexed. It makes the search among a large amount of documents a lot easier.
