SharePoint Office Pocket Guide is the quick path to sharing documents and building lists. Written specifically for users of Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook, it covers the ins and outs of SharePoint clearly and concisely. Within minutes, you'll understand how to:

  • Create team sites, document libraries, and shared workspaces.
  • Add web parts to create custom pages.
  • Build searchable libraries of PDF files.
  • Link local copies of Word and Excel files to SharePoint workspace copies.
  • Reconcile changes from multiple authors.
  • Review document history.
  • Use the Explorer Views to drag-and-drop files into SharePoint quickly.
  • Create data lists that look up values from other lists (look-up tables).
  • Group, total, and filter list items using views.
  • Use InfoPath form libraries to collect data.
You get the how and why of the top tasks without the tedious menu-by-menu walkthroughs that take hundreds of pages but add little value. SharePoint Office Pocket Guide also includes a guide to online resources that expand your knowledge of specific topics.

Comments about oreilly SharePoint Office Pocket Guide:

Good and relevant selection of topics, and well-written. I knew when I bought this book that it would not include information about SharePoint 2010, as the e-book was published in 2009. Unfortunately, I didn't see the paperback copy had been published in 2005. All information relates to SharePoint 2003. While some features are still the same, others have changed quite a bit, and are not applicable any more. I'd love to see an updated version of the guide for SharePoint 2010.
