What shape will we take? Slide 2 2 What is SharePoint and why do I care? It is a social tool It is a social tool Allows us to keep important documents, ideas, and information where everyone can easily find them Allows us to work collaboratively on projects off a web site. Allows us to build our Intranet Slide 3 3 How does SharePoint do that? Quickly builds interactive work sites that we can access through our web browsers.

Sort of a cross between a top level menu and a Google type search engine that only searches our intranet. (At this point weve done the first, but we really have very little clue how that second part works) Register your work site with Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server The very top level is a special organizational site that lets us organize everything we create at all locations. Sort of a cross between a top level menu and a Google type search engine that only searches our intranet. (At this point weve done the first, but we really have very little clue how that second part works) Slide 8 8 So how do we use it? First we embark on a discovery journey First we embark on a discovery journey Well see how easy it is to build a work site http://portal http://portal Well take a quick look at the report sites http://portal/intranet/grantreport http://portal/intranet/grantreport Then maybe youll be inspired to build your own site http://portal/MySite/ http://portal/MySite/ Slide 9 9 Building a Work Site http://portal http://portal http://portal Slide 10 10 Well go to http://portal and click on the Sites Buttonhttp://portal Slide 11 11 Well click on Create Site under Actions (on the side bar) Slide 12 12 Next well fill in the Create Site Form Slide 13 13 Well choose a Team Site Template noice the description under the picture lets you know what each of these templates to. Slide 14 14 Voila. SharePoint has built you a team worksite and already added some functionality to it An Announcements, an Events, and a Links List on the main page, and a Document Library, a Contacts List, a Tasks List, and a Message Board and Survey area on the side bar. Its that easy. Each of these pieces can be fully customized. Each of these pieces opens up on its own page. If you get somewhere off the main page while clicking around, use the Home button. It will always take you back to your main page. Slide 15 15 Now lets take a closer look at some of these specialized pieces. Well go to the Shared Documents (a Documents Library) page. And upload a Document. Notice on the side bar under actions there is an Alert me. If you click on this, you can get email alerts whenever someone makes a change to something in this library, which can be useful if youre taking turns co-writing a report or a grant. Slide 16 16 When you mouse over a document in the document library, notice that the name highlights and a little drop-down arrow appears to the right. From the drop down menu you can do things like edit the document or check out the document thats sort of like reserving it so that no one else can make changes to it while you are working in it. SharePoint will remind you to check it back in when you close Word. Slide 17 17 Taking a Look at the Report Sites http://portal/grantreport http://portal/grantreport http://portal/grantreport Slide 18 18 Now lets examine a site thats already been built one of our report sites. The Funders Reporting Schedule, the Our Compliance Strategy, and the Reports Procedures pieces are actually all Task Lists. The Negotiation Table is a Message Board, and the Blank Forms and Previous Reports is a Document Library. Remember how I said SharePoint is extensively customizable? Slide 19 19 Lets go in to Our Compliance Strategy. You can edit these entries individually or in Datasheet Table view, sort of like in Excel or Access where each entry is a row in a table. Slide 20 20 Heres the Datasheet View Slide 21 21 Building Your Personal Site http://tccapps/MySite/default.aspx http://tccapps/MySite/default.aspx http://tccapps/MySite/default.aspx Slide 22 22 There is absolutely loads more to learn but one of the best ways to get started is to build your own profile page. Everyone who has access to the Portal and eventually, that will be everyone gets their own personal site. We need many minds working on this project, so if you want access, let me know! Slide 23 23 But what about security? Although we use our browsers to access these pages, they are not actually out there on the web. Although we use our browsers to access these pages, they are not actually out there on the web. Only the CFRC sites can access them. Only the CFRC sites can access them. Even within CFRC, people can only access pages that you give them access to. Even within CFRC, people can only access pages that you give them access to. Slide 24 24 What shape will we take? Well build on what we know Well build on what we know Well commence a group developmental process Well commence a group developmental process Email me for access: jwinstead@nfp.org jwinstead@nfp.org </p>
