Documentation Lib version/revision history

  Asked By: Joseph    Date: Nov 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1130

I am not the SP Admin and the person who is is not up to the job. I need to
solve this myself.
My office has a SP site and each dept (about 7) has a 'tab'/portal on the main
I have built a document library to maintain/archive all the technical documents,
white papers, etc. my dept produces.
Many of the tech documents are going to be evolving into many further
THE 2 pressing issues at the moment:
1. Is there a way to have multiple people working on the SAME document at the
Same time and then merge the results? We often times are faced with a short
deadline from the client and need the expertise of several people to write
various sections of a complex 100 page technical doc.
2. The versioning built into SP is not to our liking. I want an option where I
enter the ver/revison number scheme of my creation. Can this be done? How?
3. Since we have no budget for SP training, what is the Best
Resource/book/website to enable me to empower myself to become fully awaware of
all of the features/functions one can access and use in a documentation library?

#1. This is a limitation of Word, not SharePoint. There is one 3rd party
product that I'm aware of which will allow you to divide a document  into
sections and work on the sections  independently from each other, but store it in
SharePoint as though it were a single document. But I doubt you would be able
to use it without involving the SP admin  and IT department. You can read about
it here:


#2. No way to change the versioning support without custom programming.

#3. I would suggest two books. Microsoft(r) Office SharePoint(r) Server 2007
