SharePoint 12 User Experience

Here are some of the highlights

  • Bread crumbs everywhere, really help users,  in the previous version it was easy to get lost, much more difficult now!
  • Much cleaner UI and much easier to discover new capabilities.  Not as rich as Office client,  but getting there
  • Very configurable, and data is easy to filter, sort etc
  • Two level recycle bin,  pretty much anything a user can delete they can restore from a personal recycle bin,  system level recycle bin is also available to admins.  Significant DCO and TCO reduction for CSC
  • Per item security
  • Simpler security model.  Visitor, Member, Owner
  • Improved search
  • Great integration with Office client, especially for high value interactions, eg
    • Work off-line
    • Submit to workflow
    • Complete meta-data
    • Analyse and report in Excel and Access
