Easing SharePoint adoption
Quest Software, soon to be officially acquired by Dell, has released AttachThis, software that brings SharePoint to Microsoft Outlook.
AttachThis permits users to:
- automatically upload attachments to SharePoint and replace them with links sent to recipients from within Outlook,
- simplify collaboration by using SharePoint to automatically consolidate edits from various team members into a single document,
- reduce time spent searching for the appropriate e-mail attachments, and
- eliminate “out-of-space” e-mail alerts.
Quest reports that AttachThis Pro allows administrators to:
- control where users store e-mail attachments in SharePoint with easily identifiable tags,
- improve security by granting document access to e-mail recipients only, and
- perform statistical analysis of organizational usage of AttachThis.
