The Microsoft SharePoint Team Services Web tool enables project managers to build project Web sites to support the project team. Through SharePoint, project teams can do the following:
  • Post announcements about important project issues and news
  • Post notifications about important project events such as team meetings, code walks, documentation reviews, and other project milestones
  • Post links to other online resources of interest to the project
  • Hold online discussions about the project, tasks, and related topics
  • Share project documents online for review
SharePoint keeps project teams connected So do weblogs. And without the expense and proprietary lock-in of Sharepoint. And you won’t even need to install FrontPage.
