It can be difficult to make your documents interesting and eye-catching when time is limited—and let’s face it, when isn’t time limited?
Perhaps you’re squeezing in a presentation in between projects or writing a report before a meeting …
Here are four tips to help you make your Office docs look better, even when you’re in a time crunch:

If you’ve managed SharePoint sites before, then you know how easy it is for sites to grow like crazy.
Teams create sites, but then site owners change, or whole teams change. Projects end, get stalled, or morph into other projects, and sites get left behind. Before long, your SharePoint intranet is overloaded with extra sites, partially completed sites, and “dead” sites.
Site policies with SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online can help tame that growth and provide a routine way of managing the potential overload. Managing sites effectively makes it easier for people to find the fresh content they need and helps your organization control when content is deleted for industry and compliance requirements.

It’s hard to carve out time to help new employees when they join your department. Often, you need the new person to dive into the workload right away—or even yesterday—but no one’s had time to think about getting the new person all the resources she needs to get up and running.
While your company likely has a set of formal procedures or guidelines to share with new people, there’s usually so much more “collective knowledge” that employees need in today’s complex workplaces. A New Employee Wiki site in SharePoint provides newcomers with all the information they need to be productive and feel in control.
With a wiki, it’s easy for you and others to add helpful information as you think of it, or as details change. The information is all captured in one place, and it’ll be there waiting each time a new employee comes on board.

Is it hard for your team to stay on top of issues? When it comes to helpdesk snafus, customer service glitches, or hitches with the new website, do you need to keep track of who’s working on which project, what’s been done so far, and whether the project is still hanging open?
You might consider using the SharePoint Issue Tracking app. It can help you define and categorize issues, and wrangle them into a manageable heap with a systematic approach.
