Groove 2007 Essential Training

with David Rivers

Video: Welcome

Hi and welcome to Groove 2007 Essential Training. I am David Rivers. I have been a training specialist and consultant for over 20 years and get this. I am still not tired of it. In fact, I am so not tired of it, I am going to take you through 12 chapters of over 60 movies that will show you the features of Microsoft Office Groove 2007, a collaboration tool that makes it easy to work with a project team just about anywhere they might be working from. I'll start you off with the very basics: creating your account, setting it up, choosing your preferences and demonstrating the fundamentals of the workspace. Then we will get into the meat of the program, adding and accessing contacts, messaging and chatting including audio chat, sharing and manipulating files with your team, and the all- important setting up meetings and appointments. We also go over adding notes, managing issues within the project and the team, using the Discussion tool, adding pictures and text to a workspace, and we will get into the very functional SharePoint Files tool.

Welcome

Hi and welcome to Groove 2007 Essential Training. I am David Rivers. I have been a training specialist and consultant for over 20 years and get this. I am still not tired of it. In fact, I am so not tired of it, I am going to take you through 12 chapters of over 60 movies that will show you the features of Microsoft Office Groove 2007, a collaboration tool that makes it easy to work with a project team just about anywhere they might be working from. I'll start you off with the very basics: creating your account, setting it up, choosing your preferences and demonstrating the fundamentals of the workspace. Then we will get into the meat of the program, adding and accessing contacts, messaging and chatting including audio chat, sharing and manipulating files with your team, and the all- important setting up meetings and appointments. We also go over adding notes, managing issues within the project and the team, using the Discussion tool, adding pictures and text to a workspace, and we will get into the very functional SharePoint Files tool.

Not sure what all these things mean? Not to worry. That's what I am here for. Today's workspaces are everywhere and your project team may be spread across a building, across town or even separated by oceans. Groove 2007 is an amazing tool that can bring them all together. So with that bit of cyber inspiration, it's time to jump into Groove 2007 Essential Training.
