New Application Templates for WSS 3.0

Applications for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Application Templates are out-of-box custom scenarios for the Windows SharePoint Services platform, tailored to address the needs and requirements of specific business processes or sets of tasks in organizations of any size.

Microsoft will release a new set of 40 application templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Some of the previous scenarios, such as Help Desk, Project Site, Knowledge Base and the Employee/HR templates will be improved to incorporate and highlight new capabilities in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. New scenarios will also be added to address specific customer needs and business requirements.

While Application Templates can be used to solve particular business needs, they can also provide a starting point for partners and developers looking to build deeper Windows SharePoint Services solutions. The new templates will make use of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 capabilities and be compatible with Office SharePoint Designer 2007 to help make customization easier.

Highlights

40 New Application Templates*

Forty new Application Templates are coming soon for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. Twenty of the templates will be “site admin templates” and available in English only. These templates will be easy for site administrators to install in a template gallery without requiring server administration access.

The remaining twenty will be “server admin templates” and available in eleven languages (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Korean, and Hebrew). These will be created as site definitions, providing tighter integration and enhanced functionality within the Windows SharePoint Services platform. They will require a server administrator to install.

*List of Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 subject to change.

Upgrades: Microsoft will release tools and guidance to help customers upgrade from some of the previous Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to run on the new Version 3.0 platform. Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 are not backwards-compatible with Version 2.0.
