Managing Site and Site Collection Features
Along with all of the site capabilities we have been discussing, you also have the ability to enable and
disable specific site features within the SharePoint sites, and you have the ability to enable and dis-
able specific site collection features in the overall site collection. Many site features are introduced
with MOSS that can be managed in this way, which we will discuss in Chapter 3.
WSS provides only a
single site feature and a single site collection feature that can be activated or deactivated. Activate or
deactivate site featur
es as follows:
1. Navigate to the site where the feature needs to be managed.
2. On the sites home page, click the Site Settings link on the Site Actions menu.
3. On the Site Settings page, in the Site Administration section, click the Site Features link.
4. On the Site Features page, click the Activate/Deactivate button to activate or deactivate the
feature.
The feature status is changed.
The Team Collaboration Lists site feature, active by default, can be managed. This feature deter-
mines if document libraries and lists should be made available within the site. For site collections,
the Three-State Workflow feature, disabled by default, is available to be managed; it can be used to
enhance the tracking and management of items in a list. Use the following procedure to activate or
deactivate site collection features:
1. N
avigate to the top-level site for the site collection where the feature needs to be managed.
2. On the sites home page, click the Site Settings link on the Site Actions menu.
