How Hosted SharePoint Works
Hosted Microsoft SharePoint sites take file storage
to a new level, providing communities for team collaboration and making
it easy for users to work together on documents, tasks, contacts, events,
and other information. In addition, team and site managers can coordinate
site content and user activity easily. The Hosted SharePoint environment is designed for easy and flexible deployment,
administration, and application development
Microsoft SharePoint sites are made up of Web Parts and Windows
ASP.NET-based components. Hosted SharePoint ships with a number of ready-to-use application templates; more will be
available in the future from Microsoft and third-party vendors.
SharePoint site members can find and communicate with
key contacts and experts, both by email and with instant messaging. Site
content can be easily searched, and users can also receive alerts to tell
them when existing documents and information have been changed, or when new
information or documents have been added. Site content and layout can be
personalized on a per-user basis, and Web Parts can be used to present targeted
information to specific users on precise topics.
Microsoft Office System programs use SharePoint site
content. All of a site's collaborative content—for example, documents, lists,
events, task assignments, and membership rosters—can be read and edited within
Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office Excel, and Microsoft Office
PowerPoint. Picture editing of Web-based photo libraries is also possible.
Microsoft Office Outlook allows SharePoint site
event calendars to be viewed side-by-side with personal calendars, and it
also creates meeting-specific workspaces to augment group appointments -

SharePoint sites provide places to capture and share
ideas, information, communication, and documents. The sites facilitate team
participation in discussions, shared document collaboration, and surveys.
Site content is accessible from both a Web browser and through clients that
support Web Services. The document collaboration features allow for easy
check in, check out, and document version control.
