Course Details and Schedule

Committees at the University of Oxford can be simple, or very complex beasts. This Do: talk introduces the idea of using SharePoint to help manage those committees. You may wish to try to ‘go paperless’ and have everything available from one web page. You may wish to keep a check on versions of a document that the committee is working on. Or to work on some documents for the committee, only releasing them for everyone on the committee to read when they are ‘published’. As part of the SharePoint Best Practices project a site template was produced for managing committees and distributing the documents. It has recently been improved further. Come along and hear how to use it.
