Need assistance for a friend's SharePoint dilemna

  Asked By: Kaci    Date: Mar 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 719

Had a former colleague contact me last night. He works for a University that has
decided to implement SharePoint. They are in the midst of a faculty handbook
revision and wanted to use SharePoint's collaborative features to do this. The
problem they've run into, however, is that they are a cross-platform shop with
both Windows and Macs.. is there a way for Mac users to use SharePoint without
having to run windows on their Macs?

Since we're a PC shop I didn't know what options in terms of browsers, add-ins,
or other software/workarounds might be available.

Depending on the SharePoint and MacOS version, Macs can use portions but
not all of the features. See
technet.microsoft.com/.../cc263526.aspx#section2 for
details. The biggie other than this is you won't get any of the
SharePoint <-> Office integration pieces - you Mac users  will need to
manually check out, download locally, edit manually upload, and check in
