Boost SharePoint's collaboration and file-sharing powers with third-party add-ons. Here's a visual tour of some favorites.
The SharePoint Tool Basket
, another free open-source CodePlex project, provides six useful utilities for administrators and developers of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. They include SPFeature Explorer, which provides a view of all the features installed on a farm and where they are active, and SPContentTYpe Explorer, which does the same thing for content types across a site collection. The Autocomplete Lookup Field with AJAX is exactly what it sounds like, and the List Columns Manager lets administrators manage the columns of a list and see associated event handlers. The Audience to Groups Converter also does just what it says, and finally, the SharePointPSScript rounds out the package with a set of PowerShell scripts for IT and developers.
