Groove 2007 features a results-oriented user interface that lets you manage and increase every team member's individual impact, simplify collaboration, streamline business processes and content management, and improve business insight. It also gives you access to a set of next-generation Web design tools, so you can deliver improved information management and teamwork solutions through a fully-integrated set of office utilities. It also gives you the option of working with new Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 capabilities, as well as Microsoft Office Communicator, to improve communication between members of your workgroup.
Quick and Easy Workspace Set-Up
Groove 2007 lets you easily create a new workspace right on your computer in just two clicks. Invite your colleagues and customers to join without worrying about networks or servers. Once you've established your workgroup, add tools to support your team's evolving needs: file-sharing, discussions, meetings, business forms, and more.
Stay Productive Online or Offline
All Groove workspaces, tools, and information are stored right on your computer so you can work productively anywhere you've got your laptop, whether you're connected to a network or not. Automatic synchronization keeps you and your team members up to date and you can update team information in the office, at a customer site, on the road, and from home.
Streamline Content Creation
Groove 2007 gives you the option to share, revise, and publish files all from a single workspace, so it's a snap to exchange document changes with your team members easily and efficiently. You can also use integrated alerts and contextual communication tools to shorten review cycles, or publish completed documents to SharePoint document libraries with one click for workflow, storage, and retrieval.
Out-of-the-Box Integration With Other Microsoft Programs
To help you access and share information stored in other applications, Groove 2007 lets you tap into Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007, and Microsoft Office Communicator. Further enhance team collaboration by synchronizing an SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Services 3.0 document library with Groove 2007. Seamlessly collaborate on files in Groove and then publish to SharePoint Server 2007 or SharePoint Services 3.0 when you're done. You can even import your InfoPath forms into Groove, which makes it easy to collect and track structured data in your team workspace, and export or synchronize results with enterprise systems. Finally, using the 2005 or 2007 versions of Office Communicator, you can make a phone call or start an instant messaging session from a Groove workspace.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The technology is peer-to-peer - that means there's a copy of everything on the machines of every user invited to participate in a workspace. This has many advantages - automatic backups, and the ability to work offline are two of the most important to me.
When I started working with Groove (beta), I was in the UK, with a colleague in Bangalore and one in San Jose (CA). We were all able to stay in sync without sending documents by e-mail. Groove is intelligent in that it automatically synchronizes files using an encrypted link.
Because of the peer-to-peer nature of the system, you do need to be online at the same time as your colleague in order to sync. The Groove server may eliminate this requirement - I haven't used it.
Groove appears to be secure, but I am no expert in that - Microsoft has lots of information on the subject.
Another great use for Groove is when you have multi-vendor projects - for example using an agency to do graphic design. You can use Groove to communicate securely through your firewalls. The communications are limited to the content of your Groove workspaces, so it's not intrinsically a risk.
However, from a corporate perspective, there is a risk. Groove makes it easy to invite "outsiders" to access potentially private corporate information. This means that a malicious user could transfer information to a third party in ways that may be difficult for their employer to detect. Of course there are many ways to do that, but this will probably be a concern to some IT organizations.
In summary, Groove has encouraged open and frequent communication across three continents, and has allowed effective sharing and backup of key documents without cluttering our e-mail. Five stars!
In these days of 4GB+ flash drives, having a 2GB file sharing limit is terribly restrictive. I have stopped using MS Groove as a result and am currently looking for a better alternative to FolderShare.
