helps everyone contribute and collaborate—and how easy it is
to set up and customize.
SharePoint Team Services
is the easiest way for any type of team or workgroup to use the
Web to share information. All it takes is a Web browser and
access to a corporate network or the Internet.
- A Web
Site Everyone Can Use.
Using preprogrammed Web-authoring forms, SharePoint Team
Services lets you 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
a Web browser to add, edit, and delete content from
a SharePoint Team Services−based Web site.
- Out-of-the-Box Functionality.
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 also makes it easy to create custom lists by
building on existing forms, or creating new ones from
- 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®
version 2002 and paste them directly into your team’s
Web site. Integration with Microsoft Excel version 2002
means you can also export lists and create Microsoft
PivotTables® and charts
to analyze information or apply text formatting.
SharePoint Team Services
opens the door to seamless communication and efficient
collaboration with a wide range of easy-to-use features.
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 library.
- Team Interaction.
SharePoint Team Services helps team members share ideas
through subscriptions and notifications that alert
everyone to Web site changes; inline document discussions
that make it easy to collaborate on specific deliverables
without altering original documents; discussion boards
that serve as a central forum for specific topics; and
surveys, which are a useful way to get targeted responses
to key issues.
- Team Management.
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
