Book Description

Sept. 21 2007 0596514077 978-0596514075 Second Edition

If you're considering the vastly improved 2007 version of SharePoint, this concise, practical and friendly guide will teach you how to get the most from the latest version of Microsoft's information-sharing and collaboration platform. Essential SharePoint 2007 demonstrates how your business can use SharePoint to control documents, structure workflow, and share information over the Web using standard tools business users already know -- Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer.

Written in a conversational tone by internationally recognized SharePoint consultant and trainer Jeff Webb, this book helps SharePoint administrators, site owners, and power users quickly gain the skills necessary to perform a wide variety of tasks for intranet and extranet web sites, and explains what's new in SharePoint 2007 for experienced SharePoint 2003 administrators. Essential SharePoint 2007 teaches you how to:

  • Use SharePoint 2007 with Outlook, Word and Excel, and as a document management tool, replacing, for example, shared network drives with libraries
  • Build and customize sites, lists, libraries and web parts for intranets and extranets
  • Use SharePoint 2007 for team communication through blogs, wikis, surveys, and RSS and email alerts
  • Build a SharePoint workflow application
  • Create and program web parts in order to deliver custom services and data to a site
  • Deploy and administer SharePoint 2007
Each chapter ends with a summary of best practices advocated by the author, and the first few chapters of the book are ideal as training materials for end users. Later chapters give developers and administrators tools not only to keep company sites running smoothly, but also to customize and extend them. The book also contains several appendices with a glossary of terms and hard-to-find information.

Essential SharePoint 2007 is a one-stop task-oriented guide for learning what's necessary to make this tool a vital part of team productivity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough info for power users Sept. 16 2009
By Yogi - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book looking for answers beyond the basic user level and failed to find any. The book is good at giving overviews of features in SharePoint 2007 and the pictures are a plus. However, this book does not go into enought detail on topics a SharePoint site administrator should really know. For example, I can NOT find anything here on how to utilize the Gannt view list for projects. There is also no information on how to create and utilize KPI (Key Performance Indicator) list templates! The book only glosses over the definition and does not go into further detail. At the sametime, it goes into detail about including images and flash animations by adding HTML codes; something meant for very advanced users. There is no user level consistency in this book which is truly disappointing. I have found more answers by experimenting on SharePoint myself than through this book. Don't waste your money here.

By C. Hartel - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is well-written and covers a good range of SharePoint topics. I find it more readable than "The Definitive Guide" (Pyles et al.), another O'Reilly book on the subject. I haven't done a side-by-side comparison of topics covered, but I would definitely recommend reading this one first if you're new to SharePoint.

Great guide and straightforward. Cant beat the price. Much of SharePoint 2007 is in 2010, so if you're learning about it, this is an inexpensive, good resource.

As the version 2010 has been in the market for years, this book is a little bit out of date, but in general I still like it.
