Microsoft SharePoint is widely used as a platform for collaboration and information storage. There is a significant step in improving efficiency by the addition of interactive document composition. The integration of the ITP Document Platform with Microsoft SharePoint combines the power of integrated document composition with workflow, archiving and processing.
ITP functions, such as creating a new letter, can be easily integrated into the SharePoint user interface and the extensive workflow capabilities of SharePoint. The functionality in SharePoint controls the entire process from creation to the authorization of documents. The document related actions can be added with the integration of ITP.
SharePoint users can choose document templates from the ribbon of a SharePoint library or list. The dialogues of interactive document templates are shown as part of SharePoint. When the document is started from a SharePoint list, all fields of the actual list item are available for use in a document. Documents which are produced by ITP are automatically stored in SharePoint libraries under the correct content type and provided with the right meta data.
Post-processing actions such as printing, PDF conversion, digital signing and sending it as an email attachment by ITP on a central server is possible by using buttons in the ribbon of a document library, or as a step in a workflow. The integration module offers all resources.
ITP has proven to be a logical and user-friendly extension of the SharePoint possibilities.
