SharePoint Features : Blogs and Wikis


A collaboration portal – an Intranet - what are ways to share information and actually collaborate? SharePoint provides a number of tools to let collaboration happen:

  • Surveys
  • Discussion Boards
  • Blogs
  • Wikis
  • We will focus here on the last two items, Blogs and Wikis.
    Blogs and wikis let users share information faster than with documents, or even email chains. They are easy to setup and very easy to use.

    For help in making your Intranet a valuable tool for company communications, contact EBS. For SharePoint solutions in Houston, EBS is your answer!

    Blogs: usually written by one or just a few authors with a particular view or style. The author posts, comment are made and the author can comment in response.

    Project managers can blog about the project status and actions /directions needed to make the project happen, or a company president can blog about the company direction or the thinking behind policy changes. Users can subscribe to RSS feeds to get the latest blog postings.

    Wikis: written by a team, or group in an ongoing information building process. Folks add-on to prior content adding comment, resource links, pictures, etc. The contributors edit and hone the postings. Wikis are evolutionary and build a useful repository of knowledge.

    Versions are saved with a version history so who made what edits is known and you can roll back the Wiki as needed.
