There are far too many features in SharePoint 2010 to go
into them all in this article. Instead,
links have been provided to direct you to information from Microsoft and other
sources that can help you learn more.
One feature of SharePoint that ITS is using more is lists. Lists aren’t new in SharePoint 2010. They have been there for a while. We use them for lists of servers, lists of projects or tasks, lists of production jobs and we are about to convert our staff OnCall list to a SharePoint List. A SharePoint List is a web version of a list of data that you might keep in a spreadsheet or simple database. It is any easy way to share lists of data in one place. If you want to use other tools to analyze the data, you can export the list to spreadsheet or Microsoft Access database. If you want to create a list from data you already have, you can import a spreadsheet into a SharePoint list. Microsoft has a good introduction to lists here SharePoint lists I.
Other information about SharePoint 2010 includes marketing material but if you want to learn how to use SharePoint you can skip ahead to the SharePoint
2010 Resources for End Users. There
are lots of tutorials and videos on the many features of SharePoint 2010. The training site Lynda.com
also offers eight courses about SharePoint including good Getting Started and
Essential Training classes.
