  • This is tightly integrated with your own personal tasks so at a glance you can see the tasks you need to accomplish. Your tasks are also aggregating tasks from Outlook, Project and SharePoint and publishing them to your timeline view and because we’re providing a connected experience the tasks that appear here will also appear in Outlook so no matter where you are, you can manage your to do list and get home on time.
  • SharePoint 2013 helps you find answers to questions and discover experts you never knew existed. Following is a huge part of increasing adoption of social and with SharePoint it’s really easy to follow a person, site, hashtag or even document.It’s a great way to stay on top of the work that you’re interested inwithout having to send emails every day to someone asking for progress. SharePointalso makes recommendations on who or what you should be following. It’s never been easier to expand your social network.
  • SharePoint 2013’s new unified search platform takes information discovery to the next level. It’s an intelligent search engine and as a result is always improving, always looking for ways to improve the relevance of search results; The search engine can look beyond the query and understood the meaning and can be integrated with your own business applications to help you discover results and get answers.
  • The term “search experience” is important, because not all search results are the same and not all searches should do the same thing.SharePoint gives provides get great search results, but also provides the ability to do specific tasks such as finding expertise, people.But it’s more than finding names, it’s finding “experts”… It’s content based, not profile based; this means that we are able to find what people know based on what they actually authored and published. A combination of technology from MSFT Research and FAST allows us to do just that andeven understand names that are written in other languages, and match them to their native form(example: Name written in Russian Cyrillic can be typed as it sounds in English and will still return the correct person)You’ll also notice on the right side the people hover card, which enables users to quickly inspect and find what they are looking for. The hover card experiencechanges based on content type, in this case for people/expertise we can easily see Past projects, Interests and more importantly the documents theyhave worked on relevant to the topic “Green Thermal” (query). The relevant “worked on “documents and actions also allows for a natural and intuitive experience, when the goal is not just finding a result but getting a task done.
