Any business, large or small, can greatly benefit from a smart technology solution that enables better teamwork and collaboration among its employees across different verticals. That’s where Microsoft SharePoint comes in. The features of Microsoft SharePoint are focused around an intranet-based cross-collaboration experience that allows for easy-to-use secure sharing, workflow collaboration, and content management features among several others.

An introduction to Microsoft SharePoint

Microsoft SharePoint is an intranet-based collaboration system that makes use of workflow applications, list databases, and other web parts & security features to enable business teams to work better together. SharePoint also allows the company using the platform to control access to information and automate workflow processes across verticals within the organization.

SharePoint Online is the Microsoft Cloud version of SharePoint, which has several additional integration abilities with other cloud-based applications. It is functionally paired with several other offerings that Microsoft packages with an Office 365 or Microsoft 365 license.

What is Microsoft SharePoint used for?

There are several stand-out features in the SharePoint platform that make it easier for people to collaborate on projects and establish & maintain standard business processes for information sharing, recording data, and document publishing.

Convenient features like co-authoring, security controls, versioning, and integration with Microsoft Exchange give business users the ability to achieve more by making the best use of their time, while maintaining the integrity & quality of the work they produce.

Microsoft SharePoint allows for the following functionality:

  • Require an approval on documents before they are made visible
  • “Check out” documents to prevent any further authoring or editing
  • Notifications when documents are uploaded or when changes are made
  • Make workflows using “if/then” logic to automate actions such as moving or emailing documents, and information recording
  • All these features enhance the productivity & efficiency of business users. The feature that really sets Microsoft SharePoint apart from other document collaboration systems is its ability to display information about what documents are stored and why

With SharePoint it is very simple to require that metadata, or information about particular data, is furnished, so that everyone involved can better understand the reason for a certain document to exist and the importance of the document even before opening it. SharePoint also allows users to craft custom databases in an easy-to-use format, and record huge chunks of information that can be integrated into the workflows or into other business processes.

SharePoint Apps

SharePoint Apps are integrations that add additional features to standard collaboration spaces on the SharePoint platform. While some apps are made available with the platform, there are several others that add features and options that are not part of the regular SharePoint platform. For example, these could include a library where business users can store and share documents, calendar plug-ins, or powerful workflow apps which enable repeatable logical actions in Microsoft SharePoint with ease.

Custom SharePoint Development

The beauty of Microsoft SharePoint is that it is an extremely versatile development platform that allows for building customized client-side components, add-ins and solutions with different scopes that address a wide variety of needs. The SharePoint developer documentation is a helpful guide that takes you through the features, technologies, capabilities, and models for development that set Microsoft SharePoint apart as an excellent development platform.

Custom SharePoint Development involves the building of customized SharePoint solutions and apps, and also individual features like workflows, site templates, and more, depending on the unique needs of any organization.
