Social with SharePoint

12th February 2013

Social media has become a huge industry overnight, but its not just for sharing pictures of cats with your friends. The features that have made social networks like Facebook and Twitter so successful are being adopted by business platforms looking to improve communication and collaboration – and SharePoint is no different.

igroup can provide training and configuration for the social features that are built into SharePoint. We can help you work out which features will be useful for your organisation, tailor the platform to your needs and provide training for staff to ensure you get the most out of your SharePoint social features. SharePoint’s social feature now include:

● Communities – Community sites provide forums in which to discuss different topics with people from across your organisation.
● Personal Profiles – A place where staff can provide an overview of their role and the best ways to get in touch. It also aggregates activity by the user helping to provide other colleagues with all the information they need.
● Lync – Lync integrates SharePoint, OneNote, Outlook, and other Microsoft Office apps meaning it can highlight the best means of contacting a user at any given time. It allows meeting attendees to share and edit notes and provides a powerful way to communication with clients and colleagues alike.
● Social Search – SharePoint administrators can now choose to incorporate a range of sources into search results, like websites, people and conversations.
