Collaborating with Groove Workspaces
I f you used Office Groove 2007 previously—which was available in Microsoft Office
Ultimate 2007 and Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007—you’ll be pleased to know it
is now a part of SharePoint Workspace 2010. Where SharePoint Workspace helps you
take files ofline and work on them, Groove workspaces give you the means to connect
and bring small teams together in a virtual workspace.
Groove really shines for collaborative projects, offering instant chat features, shared
calendars, discussion groups, file sharing, alerts, whiteboards for group presentations,
and more. And Groove syncs easily both with your individual computer (you can work
on projects ofline and then update files when you log in) and with SharePoint, so you
can update lists and download information seamlessly.
Groove is ideal for creating, managing, and sharing libraries of Word documents
related to a specific project or workgroup. Together, SharePoint Workspace 2010 and
Groove give you the means to organize, protect, share, and brainstorm all that’s needed
to get your projects done.
