SharePoint Development and Its Usability
SharePoint developed by Microsoft is a web application platform. Basically it is typically a content management system for websites. Microsoft SharePoint is also capable of various business applications that allows management, provisioning and scaling of these applications. Till date there have been many releases for Microsoft SharePoint, but SharePoint 2010 release have been widely accepted by companies.
SharePoint is being going through the development phase and becoming a place where things gets done. There has been a lot of effort involved by SharePoint Developer(s) and other professional to achieve this. There are some things that many people might not be aware of, some are:
SharePoint Information on Hand-Helds:
Many business owners as well other professionals want access to information faster and accessible from anywhere. SharePoint offers you this opportunity to access the information like important docs, files and other data that you have access to, a SharePoint Developer can help you just to optimize your SharePoint application for hand-held and smart-phones etc.
Alerts through Text Messages and Emails:
This is a feature which many people are not aware of, and which is the simplest one to manage and implement. This feature enables you to get get alerts and emails whenever your SharePoint application have been modified, like documents, project completion, status reports etc.
Offline Synchronization with Online Data:
Sometimes we come across situations where we need to access data but we are completely offline and cannot access the data. Here the use of SharePoint Workspace comes into picture, once this is configured you can easily access data even if you are offline and whenever you are online the next time, the data synchronizes with the last update available for that file and set it up online. So that you can access the latest data.
Multiple Author Access:
Another feature that is offered by SharePoint includes that one single file can be edited by multiple users at the same time. Once the file is created in the library and the link is shared among the users who are editing the file, a pop-up will show alerts whenever the data has been saved by any user. This is good time saver when editable files are shared among users.
