Outlook and SharePoint

Any SharePoint list or library can be connected with Outlook. This can be done by going to the specific list and selecting “Connect to Outlook” option in the ribbon bar.

Click Allow and then click yes on the next Dialog box that appears. You should now be able to see the library listed on the left navigation bar on you Outlook.

Connecting a SharePoint Calendar to Outlook:

Go to the specific calendar and select the “Connect to Outlook” option. You should now be able to see the SharePoint Calendar like any shared Calendar on your Outlook. Synchronization is both ways, so you can add a new item to the SharePoint Calendar from within Outlook and the changes would be reflected in the SharePoint site.
You can also overlay multiple SharePoint calendars if you are involved with multiple SharePoint sites.

SharePoint 2010 Metadata and Taxonomy management: Setting up metadata to enable better tagging of documents and files within lists and libraries is a lot easier.
