Working Collaboratively with Document Fragments


Windows SharePoint Services provides an enhanced storage system that facilitates collaboration. This system improves upon old collaboration techniques of simply emailing documents back and forth or dropping them in a file share. Relying on email is an awkward system, as team members are never sure they have the most up-to-date version of the document and consolidating the changes becomes a laborious task. File shares are also limited in that files dumped there are often difficult to find, users have no idea if the file is currently being edited by another team member, and versioning is reduced to a Save As operation. SharePoint’s system of Web-enabled content databases provides a rich experience for the team working on the document. The environment provides check-in/check-out functionality, versioning, metadata, search, and an entire web site for storing lists of data related to the creation of the document.
