Working with Shared Workspace

Using Shared Workspace icons allow you to connect to your SharePoint Server in a Office 2003 program: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Each icon displays different information on your document. Users can view the status of a document, see the availability of a document, display properties of a document, and list additional resources, folders, and access rights of a document. You can also show the current tasks which are assigned for your document, display the online team members of your group, and display the workspace information.

Use Shared Workspace in an Office 2003 Program

Log into your SharePoint server with your domain account and password.

In a Office 2003 program (Word, Excel and PowerPoint), click on the Tools menu, and then click Shared Workspace.

If you open Shared Workspace for the first time you may be prompted to create a new workspace area.

Use the Shared Workspace Navigation bar tools.
