SharePoint – A Revolution or Just Plain Revolting (Brad George)
Have you ever thought…
I wish I didn’t have to open a browser every time I go to my SharePoint project site, or
I wish my documents would work like they do on my file system, or
I still can’t find my documents in SharePoint, or
I wish I didn’t have to click 10 places to see my project data, or
I wish I could synchronize my MS Project schedule with SharePoint, or
Yes we have SharePoint, what’s the big deal?
This demonstration will show you 5 ways to help make SharePoint one of your favorite tools in your software toolbox. In the context of a Project Team Collaboration website, you’ll see some of the really cool ways people are taking advantage of SharePoint. As a bonus, you’ll get a preview of how to synchronize your MS Project schedule with SharePoint 2010 (coming May 12, 2010). Key topics include:
Use Outlook to manage your SharePoint tasks, calendars, contacts, and more. No browser required.
Use Microsoft Office to work directly in your SharePoint documents, just like your file system.
Use document libraries more effectively to organize and find documents. Stop using folders!
Use personal or project dashboards to organize critical information at a glance.
Publish and synchronize your project schedule from Microsoft Project to SharePoint 2010.
