A Closer Look at SharePoint Workspace 2010
SharePoint Workspace 2010 is part of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, and its
primary purpose is to enable you to easily move files from the server to your computer so that
you can work with them ofline. After you complete your work, you can seamlessly sync the
file back to the server, where others can check it out and work with it.
You can also create Groove workspaces, which add more than document and file
management features. When you create a Groove workspace in SharePoint Workspace 2010, you
can chat in real time with your workspace colleagues, add tasks and actions, hold
discussions, and much more.
Creating a New Workspace
If SharePoint Workspace 2010 is part of your Office 2010 suite, you can launch the software
by clicking the Start button on the taskbar, pointing to All Programs, clicking Microsoft
Office, and choosing Microsoft SharePoint Workspace 2010. You are asked to create an
account, and then the program’s Launchbar appears, showing any SharePoint workspaces
or Groove workspaces you currently have permissions to use (see Figure 21-5).
