This is my first blog, and I have chosen to dedicate it to my preferred collaborative tool, SharePoint.
In the weeks to come, I plan to address some practical questions that are regularly raised by end users:
how to open links in a new window (or not)
how to create drop-down menus
how to create a countdown for tasks lists
Some blogs have already dealt with these questions in the past, and I hope to add here some original ideas.
To achieve these customizations, we first need to become familiar with some key SharePoint tools, so I’ll spend a couple posts introducing them. These tools include for example calculated columns and the Content Editor Web part.
The instructions will target SharePoint 2007 users, and I’ll also try to highlight some differences with SharePoint 2003.
