Microsoft SharePoint Workspace extends your SharePoint sites to your desktop, allowing you to work when you want and where you want.

Designed for team collaboration, Microsoft SharePoint Workspace (formally known as Groove), allows you to create and manage workspaces in which you can share documents, calendars, folders and spaces. These can be worked on on your PC, before being automatically synced with your SharePoint site. You can choose to work offline and then sync back with Microsoft SharePoint Workspace when you next go online.

Fast file access

Managing your site's files with Microsoft SharePoint Workspace is a dream, thanks to a handy launcher interface which allows you to quickly import documents. The software integrates with Windows Search, allowing you to access specific pages and files very quickly by searching all available workspaces from the same place.

Adopting the ribbon style of other Office products means Microsoft SharePoint Workspace is very well organized and easy to get around. It allows you to easily work with other programs in the suite, and utilize the resulting documents on your SharePoint sites.

Collaborative tools

There are plenty of helpful collaborative tools within Microsoft SharePoint Workspace that make it easier to manage projects across a team. For instance, there's a Check in/out tool for allocating files to users, an integrated chat feature and a version history tracker for keeping up with changes.

Microsoft SharePoint Workspace offers a quick solution for managing SharePoint sites on your desktop, and provides a simpler way to collaborate on projects.

    "The worst in category"

    Very disappointed by this product. It hardly keeps synced with the server. The user experience is just a big mess. Nothi... More.
