3.3. Summary

This chapter discussed document collaboration in a team environment and then detailed the benefits and pitfalls of managing a single document with multiple editors. Things to remember about this chapter are as follows:

  • SharePoint's library feature enables you to create, store, and manage your documents from a central location.

  • Document libraries let you track a variety of different types of information. It is the most common type of SharePoint library.

  • SharePoint also offers you libraries that are for a specific type of file or information and has templates to create these libraries, including InfoPath form data, images and pictures, Excel spreadsheets for browser-based reporting and dashboards, data connection files, and presentation slides.

Throughout this chapter, you looked at the ways that a user can interact with document libraries and the content within them. In Chapter 4, you take a deeper look at customizing libraries along with lists to suit more specific needs your organization might have.
