About the course

Learn to use SharePoint's powerful collaboration tools to manage projects, meetings, communication and scheduling. SharePoint makes project management easy for any user who needs to collaboratively manage a project or participate in a project team. It empowers both the novice and experienced user to handle everything from the lightest projects, using the new project site template and features, to the more sophisticated management of enterprise portfolio projects, integrating SharePoint with Project Server. It can provide any project manager with an easy, efficient way to coordinate resources, track tasks, manage team members and communicate with stakeholders about projects—in real time across their organization.
