Document Management Overview

SharePoint Portal Server 2001

Document management provides users with an environment that includes many features for collaborative document creation. Users with coordinator or author roles can check out documents, edit the documents, and then check the documents back in. Users can route documents for approval using workflow processes, and make the approved documents available for viewing by a wider audience of readers. In addition, users can subscribe to documents and directories and receive notifications of changes in those documents and directories.
