How to promote an app (using SPS 2003)? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Would like to promote an app by showcasing it to about 20 opinionmakers.  Would Sharepoint do well allow me to allow access to an app by appointment?  I have a copy of SharePoint Portal Server 2003.  Guidance sought

  • My first hint would be to forget SharePoint 2003.  It's outdated technology that's well beyond it's product / support life cycle and doesn't show any of the capability of SharePoint generally (2007 and later editions).  its calendar options are basic, there's no supported third party products for it anymore and it's not worth anyone's time to build or create NEW applications within it.

    Later versions of the technology (2007) you can discuss here. 

    (SharePoint 2010 has it's own forum set so questions about using that to promote web apps will need to go there.)

  • Hi,

    I agree with Steven's post about the MOSS versions you have. 

    In MOSS 2007 you can do it in a very easy way. By the term opinionmakers I think you want to capture decision from a set of people to decide on the product.

    Hence you can do it in a multiple ways. However the most easy way I would suggest you to create a survey.

    You can point out decision points as questions and you can ask the opinionmakes to select their opinions.

    I hope this will help you out


    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
