"SharePoint User's Guide": Getting Started with SharePoint Collaboration Services
Sebastopol, CA--There's nothing like teamwork for making progress on a project, but sharing information and building on each other's successes can be challenging when your team is scattered across the miles. Windows SharePoint Services helps to close the distance. With SharePoint, groups can quickly create team sites and workspaces specifically for collaboration--sites where individuals can capture and share ideas, and work together on documents, tasks, contacts, and events. It's the next best thing to being in one room together.
SharePoint Services is available on any server that runs Windows Server 2003. It integrates with Microsoft Office 2003 Professional so the team sites and workspaces are natural extensions of Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Unfortunately, much of the documentation for SharePoint is written to help system administrators get it up and running, which often leaves end users in the dark. The SharePoint User's Guide (O'Reilly, US $14.95) by Infusion Development Corporation takes another approach; this compact, easy-to-read guide shows users what they need to know to get the most from SharePoint.
SharePoint User's Guide provides step-by-step instructions on how to perform the most common tasks that users encounter, including:
The SharePoint User's Guide is designed to help readers find answers quickly, explaining key concepts and major points in straightforward language. With SharePoint, any team or organization can overcome geographic or time-zone challenges, and the SharePoint User's Guide will show them how.
