Overview

Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003 and Windows SharePoint Services address a variety of information-sharing and collaboration needs, providing an innovative way for you to manage information. In order to get the most out of SharePoint, you need to understand its capabilities to create materials, collaborate with others, and share enterprise information.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced SharePoint user, SharePoint 2003 User's Guide is designed to provide you with the information you need to effectively use these tools. The authors, who are experienced SharePoint consultants, take a real-world look at the best practices for Microsoft SharePoint 2003 and include many detailed examples you can build on.

The Barnes & Noble Review
More companies are discovering the SharePoint services available free with Windows Server 2003. Others are deploying full-fledged SharePoint servers for even more powerful collaboration. But succeeding with SharePoint requires extensive technical knowledge: the knowledge you’ll find in this book.

Two leading SharePoint consultants start by introducing SharePoint Portal Server portals: security, content, structure, personalization, search, and more. Next, they turn to Windows SharePoint Services, showing how to customize team sites and document or meeting workspaces using Microsoft’s tools. There are step-by-step instructions for working with custom lists and data; using SharePoint libraries; and customization with Pages and Web Parts.

The heart of the book: detailed scenarios for constructing SharePoint solutions for document collaboration, project collaboration, meeting management, and intranets. The authors’ best practices will serve you well, whether you’re supporting a workgroup or an enterprise. Bill Camarda, from the August 2005 Read Only

Excellent read! The book held my hand through some of the rough areas of Sharepoint and helped me set up a comprehensive Project Management site for my team. The samples were very helpful and covered the right topics. You get a good appreciation for what Sharepoint has to offer and how you can customize it to your needs. I recommend this book to anyone just starting off with Sharepoint. No deep technical knowledge required.
