External Collaboration Toolkit for SharePoint

  Asked By: Nicole    Date: Aug 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 821

I have been curious to know how many organizations are out there seeking
a solution to fulfill requirements to engage external users in a
collaborative environment. Are their organizations out there that have
been frustrated with administrative overhead and would like to implement
an intuitive solution that functions via an External User Approval
workflow, Site Collection Approval workflow, etc? Have you been
frustrated with the client integration feature of SharePoint not working
and/or supported by Microsoft when combined with forms based
authentication? Are you familiar with the ECTS and the datasheet?
Please download the datasheet here
blogs.technet.com/.../2718772.ashx and
discover the ultimate solution. Please share your interests if client
integration functions as expected with Forms Based Authentication
although it is not supported by Microsoft.

The author of ECTS and I have been working diligently to enable client
integration with FBA successfully and it functions as expected with the
Explorer View Drag and Drop, Edit in Microsoft Office
Excel/Word/PowerPoint/Access, uploading multiple documents, etc. These
features are what is included by enabling client integration.

Want to learn more? Share your thoughts and let's open this up for
discussion. Microsoft has shared their thoughts believing this
technology is not in need and I feel differently based on my personal
experiences with clients.
