New Zealand Ministry of Transport Intranet "How We Did It"

Posted by workerthread on April 30, 2008

A while ago I noticed a post by Chandima from Provoke in New Zealand where he talks about one of the projects that his company designed and delivered featuring in the best ten intranets on a Neisen Norman Group report.  The intranet was developed for the New Zealand Ministry of Transport and you can read his original post here.

Now the Microsoft SharePoint Product Group have posted a much more detailed article on how Provoke developed the Tag Driven Information Architecture which is used throughout the site.  This is a very useful read if you are thinking about setting up a MOSS Intranet, particularly if you want to see an example about how tagging content with metadata can add value.  Read it here.

Office Labs – Office 2007 Search Commands

Posted by workerthread on April 30, 2008

On the Office Labs site you can download a little utility which adds a Search Commands ribbon to Word, Excel and PowerPoint 2007.  I’ve installed it and it works pretty well.  Note that it is a prototype though, so usual caveats apply.  You can download from here.

I noticed that the Office Labs site itself is powered by SharePoint Server 2007, and another useful looking project on there is Community Clips, where you can create and share “how-to” videos on office products.  The Community Clips site can be found here.

WSS 3 and MOSS 2007 Version Differences

Posted by workerthread on April 28, 2008

The question I am still asked most of all is “what are the differences in functionality between WSS 3.0, Sharepoint Server 2007 Standard and SharePoint 2007 Enterprise”.  There are numerous posts about this, particularly on the Microsoft Office site, but the best single-picture summary I have found is here on Mike Pallot’s blog – Mike has provided a download link here.
