I am new to sharepoint, and have started a project and Just finished to gather requirements. I have also read about sharepoint and I have a big picture of it.
This is my development environment and my situation: * I am using sharepoint entreprise 2010 * No access to the server ----> no central administration access * One of the sharepoint server administrator told me the company does not use Sharepoint Designer * Admin people have created a team site for me that I am using to implement The project (document management, search , dashboard)
According to the requirement gathered: I will be creating document libraries with default permission level,metadata implementation, views will be created, they is no workflow to implement,advanced search of documents will be implemented and some dashboards too.
My questions are:
- Is it possible to do all this with no SP designer , I mean everything using the SP graphical interface? If no what alternative do I have for Interface design with no Sharepoint designer at All?
To achieve search for example , i read that i need some set up in the central administration, But I don't have access to that, Can I implement a good search feature without doing any set up on server (my site will allow search only in our document libraries, so I want the search to be in the team site)? what option do I have?
Is there anyway to implement a dashboard or any KPI( Key performance indicator ) with no SP designer ? what do I need and how to go about it?
Any suggestion and links are welcome.
Thanks for your answers in advance.
