Country and Region Term Set for SharePoint


​I thought I would share a term set that I have created using Wictor Wilén’s Excel Macro Template.

It is a list of countries grouped by region. The USA is a region to allow for the selection of states without this causing a 3rd level (silly decision on my part but I’m not going to change it at this stage). The regions are able to be selected as terms but you could set this to false for each region before importing.

What are the main differences between Microsoft Sharepoint and Open Exchange?

Hi, I am very familiar with Microsoft SharePoint but not so with “Open Exchange”, can somebody please tell me what the main differences are between the two, and why you would select one over the other, disregarding licensing issues and costs for the moment.

Many thanks

Chosen Answer:

Well, SharePoint is not an email platform, so that is a big difference between the two. Both can share calendars and contacts, and both can share documents.

Exchange uses Outlook to deliver all of that to the desktop, but can use other clients (like a web-based system called Outlook Web Access) as well. What it is NOT good at is managing large amounts of documents and other files. Public Folders (which is how you share files in Exchange) are being phased out by Microsoft, and they have always been a secondary choice for sharing documents.

SharePoint is designed for knowledge collaboration – in other words sharing documents, wiki pages, shared calendars and contacts. It uses only a web-based interface, and isn’t designed to synchronize with a desktop like Outlook is. Of course, as I said before, SharePoint is not an email system at all, so if you are looking for an email platform, SharePoint alone just isn’t an option.

So each has some great strengths and weaknesses. Most larger organizations use both!

How do you sync 10 individual Outlook calendars with one Sharepoint Calendar?

My department would like to sync all individual Outlook calendars into our department Sharepoint calendar so that we can see vacation days, etc. Is this possible? I already know how to view the centralized calendar in my Outlook.

Chosen Answer:

You don’t.

What you will need to do is to have each person enter their calendar items into the shared calendar view.

And then have them use Outlook to view the shared calendar.
