Footnotes

Some of the very first things you can always do with SharePoint are:


1)With a good SharePoint intranet template, you can pload files and document using Sky drive Pro

2)Open, create or modify document in a document library (in a SharePoint 2010 intranet template or a SharePoint 2013 intranet template).

3)Coherent and simultaneously working on a document, without disturbing others in the SharePoint 2010 intranet template.

4)Document sharing within the organization with a SharePoint intranet template

5)Document sharing outside organization to the authorized users in the SharePoint 2010 intranet template.

6)Create and manage team Site with a SharePoint intranet template.

7)Version control and preserving document versions so they can be restored at any point of time in the SharePoint 2013 intranet template.

8)Content search, which allows to search data, people or document in the SharePoint 2013 intranet template. This is a great reason to upgrade to SharePoint 2013.

9)Information Sharing and collaborating (for SharePoint as intranet).


10)Email is great but on a project, the # of documents and document versions flying around can get mind-boggling at times. The worst is when 2 people update a document and release it at about the same time...now someone has to go through the trouble of merging the 2 documents. Most often, no one goes through the trouble and the team is simply left to just figure it out by themselves. What's great about SharePoint intranet site examples is that you can create a document library for a particular project...like let's say you call the library "Product Documentation". All team members know to place their documents in that library. SharePoint as intranet automatically versions the file. If you want better controls on the library such that the previous scenario of 2 updates gets released at the same time, you can specify that the document library should have check in/check out enabled. Thus only the person who has a checked-out version can make modifications and check it back in again inside the SharePoint as intranet. Others can only get a read-only copy. If this is a bit too 'serialized' a process for you, you can create a multi-tasked system of updating the document called 'co-authoring'. Different sections of the document get locked to particular users and with the click of a button, those sections can be merged into the master document! If you upgrade to SharePoint 2013, you will be able to reap all of these benefits. Your vendor of choice should have a wide plethora of SharePoint intranet site examples.


11)Making sure a SharePoint 2013 intranet is put to its best use and the final product is best gauged through the number of people employed in a firm making use of this software. Employees must in all situations be explained the benefits of having this SharePoint 2013 intranet installed and be encouraged to take it up as early as they can. After all, the SharePoint 2013 intranet is meant for workers to share information over the same platform and achieve tasks allotted to them in time which is ultimately going to benefit the business. SharePoint Intranet is also a great source to keep all your files and documents in one place so that everybody has an easy access to them and can review it whenever need be. If such a practice is undertaken by any company it must also ensure that it puts all its policies and norms also on the Intranet so that it is available for the employees to be read over and over again and clarify any doubts that may arise. Upgrade to SharePoint 2013 for maximum results. But make sure before you choose a vendor that you see their SharePoint intranet site examples.
