If You Want to Find and Read Content

Finding content in the Wiki is easy!

To find information

  • Use search.

    NOTE: The scope of this search is the Wiki, not TechNet/MSDN/Internet.
  • Browse the List of Products and Related Topics to find information on the product that you are looking for. That article is a Portal (a list of Wiki articles). To find all the portals...
  • Browse the Portal of TechNet Wiki Portals, which lists every portal, including portals about specific technologies (SharePoint, BizTalk, etc.) and general topics (Development, Glossaries, etc.). Then each portal includes a list of related Wiki articles.
  • Browse the Article Spotlight, which lists out important topics for each product.
  • Use tags.
  • Monitor content to get the latest information.
  • Check the Stubs.

  • Suggestion: How about making the "Sign-in" list item a link ("To contribute" list on this page and IMHO it ismore intuitive than searching for the link in the top-right corner.

  • As "Sign-in" is only 1 time activity till the session expires. I think it is better to keep the common terminology of "Sign-in" and add some attractive images / content which have the usage and benefits of contribution.

  • I think this is a great idea.  Would like to make sure you don't bail on the older technologies (i.e. SharePoint 2007).  some of us work for organizations that are technically retarded.

  • Nice getting started page, and a resourceful wiki.
