On top of the 30 Windows SharePoint Services Applications introduced in August of last year, Microsoft has released 3 new WSS Applications :
- Discussion Database
This application for Windows SharePoint Services allows team members to create, review and reply to discussion topics. Team members can send discussion items to other team members for review, attach documents to discussion items and set alerts to receive notification when a discussion item is added or changed.
- Document Library
This application allows team members to create, upload, checkout, review, and modify documents. Team members can send documents to other team members for review, assign documents to other team member members and set alerts to receive notification when a document is modified. In addition to the standard SharePoint search functionality, this application allows the user to see additional views of the document library, including By Category, By Author and By Review Status.
- Team Work Site
This application provides an Announcement List to keep team members informed of important news, a Discussion Board to support and encourage discussions regarding topics of team interest, a central Task List to record and monitor team tasks and their progress, an Events List for scheduling and supporting team meetings, and a central Document Library for the storage and retrieval of important team reference documents.
