Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Power User Cookbook

Overview of this book

The power of Microsoft SharePoint as the Enterprise collaboration platform is ever-growing; due to the wide range of capabilities it offers, SharePoint 2010 can help transform your business so you can quickly respond to the changes and challenges that you face. For End Users, SharePoint helps you and your team work "better, faster, and smarter". This book will take your SharePoint knowledge further, showing you how to use your skills to solve real business problems. While many other titles might be characterized as "SharePoint Explained", this cookbook contains advanced content that goes beyond that found in other SharePoint End User offerings: it is "SharePoint Applied". It provides recipes walking Power Users through a range of collaboration, data integration, business intelligence, electronic form, and workflow scenarios, as well as offering three invaluable business scenarios for building composite applications. The cookbook begins by providing a comprehensive treatment of SharePoint essentials, while quickly moving forward to topics like Data Integration, Business Intelligence, and automating business processes. At the end of the book, the information presented in the earlier recipes is combined to create three example SharePoint 2010 "composite applications" for Human Resources (HR), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Project Management. Composite applications are the "unique selling point" of SharePoint 2010 and understanding how to create them is the key to unlocking the business value of the product.

Reviewing the tags and notes other users have posted on a SharePoint page

Tags and notes bring SharePoint pages to life. You can start to access the collective intelligence and opinions of your co-workers by reviewing the tags and notes they leave for you.

Getting ready

This recipe works for:

  • SharePoint 2010 Standard Edition

  • SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Edition

  • SharePoint 2010 Online (Office 365 Edition)

It requires you to be logged in and have read access but no other privileges are necessary.

How to do it...

  1. If there are tags or notes on a page, the Tags and Notes icon on the top right-hand corner of the page turns red. To review the information, click on the icon.

  2. The Tags and NoteBoard dialog is displayed. You can review the tags that other users have left on the page.

  3. To switch to the notes view, click on the Note Board.

How it works...

Tags help you find pages again or classify the information that they contain. Notes are public comments that you leave on the pages for others to see. Use notes to add to the content, to correct any obvious mistakes, or explain information that is unclear. Don't use notes for observations such as "the author of this page is obviously a blithering idiot" unless you are confident that you can defend your viewpoint to the Managing Director without getting fired.
