Let's take a look at the other workspace that we can get in SharePoint. Once again, a workspace is a site and we are now here looking at a basic Meeting Workspace or a basic meeting site. I can see immediately that it shares a lot of the common things with the Document Workspace and with the team site. We still have the Ribbon, we still have the general look and feel. It does appear that the Quick Launch Bar on the left-hand side is gone, and that is true, because the idea of a Meeting Workspace is about as simple as it gets here and you don't really need to navigate all that much from place to place.
In this case, the Meeting Workspace has a place for Objectives, a place to list Attendees, a place for an Agenda, and a place for a Document Library. Everything here can be driven from this one page. It is still a SharePoint site, so if I want to, I can go to my Site Actions menu and find the View All Site Content section, which will tell me, "yep, you have got one document library and three lists." That's it. That's all you have, and that is the entirety of this Meeting Workspace of this meeting site.
The idea is that you are not using this for a very simple, straightforward, okay, I want to get together once a week and just see how things are going. But if you have formal meetings, the places you need to put agendas and multiple documents and lists of attendees, this is a great way to do it because it's a casual way to do it. For a lot of people, you have to get your mind beyond that idea of, well, I am not going to make a website just for a meeting. And the question is well, why not? This is super simple to create, super simple to use.
When you are done with it, which might be a few days or a few weeks, you can just get rid of it. You don't need it anymore. It's essentially the same kind of things that you might end up keeping track of on a piece of paper or by sending an email request back and forth across a few people. You put it here. You put it in the Meeting Workspace. But they are just SharePoint sites made of lists and libraries, easy to create and easy to use. View them almost as disposable resources.
