SharePoint Intranet Templates That Are Available Out of the Box



SharePoint intranet templates and SharePoint web parts...they comprise what users see as SharePoint...some of the web parts are interconnected and some are independent. One real success-driver for SharePoint deployments is choosing the right set of Intranet templates for your particular company's real business needs, or if you are a gov't entity or non-profit, this applies to you as well -- bottom-line is that you are trying to solve an organizational problem or achieve certain results or streamline something. SharePoint is designed to aid in these areas, but when not implemented correctly, it can prove to be frustrating.


Sites 1-11 below are for COLLABORATION:


1) Team Site

This is very common. Use this one if you want your teams to collaborate better in a more organized and structured manner. It lets you share information and documents very well. The web parts it contains are: Document Library, Site Assets (good for bundling audio, picture, and video files in one central library), Announcements list (to broadcast newsworthy items to the team), Calendar (great for sharing scheduling information like member vacations, team events, deadlines), Links list (find key pages on the intranet or somewhere else fast), and a Discussions list. We recommend NOT using this since the IBX Departments and Projects Templates are superior. This SharePoint intranet template is available for SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013.


2) Project Site

This SharePoint 2013 intranet template is great for managing your employees and if you are an employee, it's great for checking on what tasks you have and what is the status. A project management template like this can house all docs in one central location.


3) Developer Site

This Sharepoint Intranet template is available in SharePoint 2013 only. Developers get to build, test, and publish their office apps.


4) Blog

Sort of a chatting template. People get to share opinions, ideas. Has list of posts, comments to posts, and links. Blog posts can be approved or rejected if you are the moderator. You can get email alerts when a new post or reply to a post is added. Posts can also be categorized upon creation. This is available as a SharePoint 2010 intranet template and a SharePoint 2013 intranet template.


5) Document Center

Ideal for heavy-duty document management needs....that is when content authoring is a priority, use this template. It has a document library with versioning, check-in/check out, and workflows. Status of document is shown prominently in a tasks list (like not started, in progress, or complete). Can hold 50K documents. Available as a SharePoint 2010 intranet template and a SharePoint 2013 intranet template.


6) Records Center

This is a records management solution: great for storing and sharing large #'s of finished documents. Collection, management and disposition features. Has routing features so incoming files can be routed to the correct folders. Also, can records be deleted or modified after they are added to the repository...this is set by the administrator. Available as a SharePoint 2010 intranet template and a SharePoint 2013 intranet template.



7) Community Site

Similar to a blog site except it keeps track of trends. This intranet template is available in SharePoint 2013 only.


8) Meeting Workspace

When you have a meeting, provide a link to the meeting workspace which will house documents, agendas, objectives (goals of the session so everyone has a focus -- this list can be ordered from highest priority to lowest priority), attendee lists, etc. This describes a Basic Meeting Workspace. A Decision Meeting Workspace has additional lists: Tasks and decisions. A Social Meeting Workspace is used to plan parties and events. There's even a Blank Meeting Workspace where you get to pick and choose which lists to expose on that site (and you can import custom objects like Excel spreadsheets and dump that on the page). A Multipage Meeting Workspace is used for more complex meetings like recurring meetings....you can have up 10 pages for support -- like use one page for the kickoff meeting and the others for the outcomes or prep files for the remaining meetings. Available as an intranet template in SharePoint 2010 only.


9) Group Work Site

Great for ongoing group efforts versus a shorter-duration project. Has Group Calendar, Circulations, Phone Call Memos, etc. This intranet template is available for SharePoint 2010.


10) Enterprise Wiki Site

Capture large amounts of organizational knowledge. It's a type of Publishing site and it's great for getting your team to contribute and brainstorm -- they get to a brain dump! Pages can be rated and categorized. This intranet template is available for SharePoint 2010.


11) Visio Repository

Store and share Visio Process Diagrams. These kinds of intranet templates are in SharePoint 2010.


12) eDiscovery Center

Investigating something? Like a legal matter? You can place certain mailboxes and SharePoint sites on hold in which content can be sort of "snapshotted" so when content changes occur, you can get to what was there before. These kinds of SharePoint Intranet Templates are in SharePoint 2010.


13) Personalization Site

Used in conjunction with MySites. Each team member has his own page where he fills in My Colleagues, My Interests, and Newsfeed Settings. They can get personalized views of data so they get to see what they want to see. These kinds of SharePoint Intranet Templates are in SharePoint 2010 & SharePoint 2013.


14) Publishing Site

Create great looking web pages for your users who are more sensitive on the way things look. If you use the Publishing Site with Workflows to enable workflow processes ....like when a graphics team is involved, their graphics get published only when approved by the manager. This kind of SharePoint intranet template is available for SharePoint 2010.



15) Blank Site

Pick and choose what you need...start with a blank canvas!
