Sharing information is a core feature of Office 2013, which became available for everyone to use earlier this month in a preview version
. One of the applications in Office 2013 is the new version of SharePoint, which includes a way to create pages for teams to share and update information about projects.
In a new post on the official SharePoint blog
, Microsoft goes over some of the new SharePoint team site features. Users can adjust the background, font, color style and more for the team page by using the Getting Started Metro-style tiles. Once the team page has been customized, the Getting Started tiles can be removed.
After that, users will likely want to upload documents to the SharePoint team page. The new version lets users preview a document, along with adding features such as informing people if the document has been changed and by whom. There's also a Sync button in the new SharePoint that automatically synchronizes all of the documents on the page with a user's home PC. Microsoft states, "Once you sync a library, you can access all of the files in it from Windows Explorer and Office even if you don’t have an internet connection."
