Connections Plug-in for Microsoft
SharePoint provides the following applications:
- Profiles search for finding people in your organization. If colleagues you find with a Profiles search are in your SharePoint directory, you can add them to your SharePoint group or site.
- Business card for getting contact and social networking information about users in your organization. From the business card, you can create a mail message to this colleague or open their blog, bookmarks or full profile.
- Tag cloud for finding content stored on IBM Connections servers. Clicking a tag launches a search that matches against all Connections services. For example, clicking a new-hire tag could return a community and a blog posting.
- The IBM Connections Widget for Microsoft SharePoint is a widget you install separately on an IBM Connections server so that community members can upload, view and share documents stored on a Microsoft SharePoint server.
