Sharepoint 2010 Features

This is all about Sharepoint 2010 Features-Microsoft has provided a lot of new sharepoint 2010 features including the rich ribbon Interface- and much more functionality bundled with it.
We will try to cover many sharepoint 2010 features please stay connected to read more if you do not find your desired topic.
Sharepoint 2010 cross the boundaries of browser and reach at mobile desktop – so you can enhance the employee productivity while they are away from office.
With the enhanced mobile access with sharepoint 2010 employees can access information from different location share and edit the presentation or docs and comments on all instances to make them run faster including word docs and power point presentation etc more than the previous version –sharepoint 2007 that focused on infopath forms on mobile only.

You will be going through with the sharepoint 2010 features and its comparison with sharepoint 2007

 There is a drastic change in user interface of sharepoint 2010 that is- many options are available on ribbon style interface, so user does not spend much time to go further to do single task, it can be related to view web application properties or make any changes on web application level or if user is working on document workspace then the commands are available on Ribbon- make changes on the fly and get going or any task you do using ribbon in sharepoint2010 is fast than sharepoint 2007.

You do not need to create a webaprt zone to add a webpart for your site in sharepoint 2010, in earlier version people needs to add a webpart zone to add a webpart in your site, so finally editing content and adding functionality been more easy in SharePoint 2010.

Inline editing :

another new feature, you can edit list item on the fly like list item can edited instantly. So user does not need to navigate back and fourth to edit item just single click using AJAX Dialog things are done. 

Quick Upload: 

this is another improved feature in sharepoint 2010, if you want to upload content in document library so content upload functionality become too fast - only dialog box is changed and speed of upload is increased and the rest of functionality is same as it was in sharepoint 2007.

Different theme for branding:

 in sharepoint 2010 has been provided and functionality is  improved and made more easy like you need to do a lot of work if you just want to change header color of sharepoint 2007, but in sharepoint 2010 you just tweak with the theme option and you will see the same color and change it from theme setting.

Create new List option:

from all content type will display the screen which is more handy and more rich interface . Where you can create new list, custom list, external list etc.

BCS: Business Connectivity Service(Sharepoint 2010)-:

old BDC Sharepoint2007
You can access data from LoB application and manipulate it using sharepoint 2010, In sharepoint 2007 BDC had some different tendency to work with -where you need to write code a lot to add new item into your LoB application, but with SP2010 you can manipulate data without any difficulty and item can be manipulated using BCS Service- now Microsoft has released it as a service. And you can host this service on different server to make your application much faster.

Document Set:

Another sharepoint improvement is Document Set feature that allows you to manage docs as a set. Documents set versions as a whole and downloaded as zip file and they share same meta data. In sharepoint 2007 it was a major issue you can not have multiple docs attached with a single doc(by design you can only attaché docs as a  links)- Now using Document Set feature you approve single document set where you have stored 5 more related documents. Major difference in Doc Workspace and Document set is that it shares same metadata.

Visio Process Repository:

Microsoft has introduced few new template based on different functionality and that is called Visio process repository template in collaboration section, 

Using this template you can track your visio diagram and find out how many guys had made changes in which versions etc. And all the processes designed in Visio can be stored in process diagram document library in SharePoint 2010.
