What is included with this book?


With more than 100,000,000 SharePoint licenses sold, organizations ranging from the largest enterprises to the smallest mom-and-pop businesses are relying on SharePoint. Millions of people are using SharePoint to provide simple collaboration and content management, but most SharePoint books focus on enterprise-scale solutions that are far too complex for the readers who need them most. That's where SharePoint 2007 How-To comes in. This is the first task-focused, step-by-step guide to the core tasks the vast majority of SharePoint 2007 users and managers really need. Leading SharePoint consultant and trainer Ishai Sagi begins with end-user solutions: logging in, reading files and documents, using lists, setting up alerts, searching site content, building personal sites, and more. Next, he presents solutions for authors and content managers: everything from uploading files to using workflows. Finally, he introduces the core skills needed to manage small-scale SharePoint sites (or sub-sites within an organization's larger SharePoint site). SharePoint 2007 How-To provides concise explanations, easy-to-understand screen shots, quick keyboard shortcuts, and "next step" guidance that builds skills without being intrusive or distracting. Whether you are a manager or a user, this book will find the answers you need right away - and non-technical users who may eventually be asked to manage SharePoint sites will find all the skills they'll need to do so.
