IBM Connections Plug-in for Microsoft SharePoint

The IBM® Connections Plug-in for Microsoft SharePoint brings IBM Connections applications such as searching by tag, searching by profile, and viewing business cards, into the SharePoint environment.

The IBM Connections Plug-in for Microsoft SharePoint provides the following applications:

  • Profiles search for finding people in your organization. If colleagues you find with a Profiles search are in your SharePoint directory, you can add them to your SharePoint group or site.
  • Business card for getting contact and social networking information about users in your organization. From the business card, you can create a mail message to this colleague or open their blog, bookmarks, or full profile.
  • Tag cloud for finding content that is stored on IBM Connections servers. Clicking a tag launches a search that matches against all Connections services. For example, clicking a new-hire tag might return a community and a blog post.
  • The IBM Connections Widget for Microsoft SharePoint is a widget that you install separately on an IBM Connections server so that community members can upload, view, and share documents that are stored on a Microsoft SharePoint server.

To get started, download the plug-in from the IBM Connections catalog website:
