Full Description

 Module 1: Content Approval

Content approval can be used on both lists and libraries in a SharePoint site. With content approval enabled, you have additional options to control the visibility of items. Content approval is enabled through the list/library settings page. Content can be approved manually through the context menu and toolbar of an item or it can be automated with workflows. SharePoint includes a workflow specifically for approving content.

Workflows are a popular way to perform automated work in SharePoint.

Custom workflows can be created with software applications such as SharePoint Designer 2013 or Visual Studio 2012. SharePoint Designer is a powerful and fairly easy to use tool for creating custom workflows and does not require any formal developer skills. Visual Studio, although extremely powerful in creating custom workflows, requires developer skills to use.

The Managed Metadata service only comes with the pay versions of SharePoint Server, and it is not available with SharePoint Foundation 2013. Term Store terms are organized within a Term Set which is created within a Term Group forming a hierarchy nested within the Managed Metadata Service. The parent service defines Term Store Administrators that are responsible for creating the Term Groups. The Term Groups define the Group Managers and Contributors.

The content organizer is a SharePoint feature that only comes with the pay versions of SharePoint. It provides document routing from a drop-off library. The feature is enabled at the site level and the drop-off library is created as part of the feature activation. Once the drop-off library is created, you can define rules that route documents placed in the drop-off library to their final destination.

Module 7: Document ID Service

SharePoint's Document ID service, available with the pay versions of SharePoint, creates unique IDs for documents that are prefixed with text the Site Collection Administrator defines. What's more, is that the ID assigned to the document creates a fixed URL that can be used to link to the document even if it is moved to another library or site. The Document ID service can only be used on documents and cannot be used on list items. The Document ID service is enabled at the Site Collection level by activating a feature. Once the service is activated the Site Collection Administrator can define the prefix string to be used. SharePoint uses a Timer Job, Document ID assignment job, to set the IDs on existing documents once the Document ID Service has been activated. The Timer Job runs every 24 hours by default so existing documents will not have the IDs until the job has run. A Farm administrator can manually run the job to have the IDs created sooner. New documents will have IDs created when the document is saved to the library.

They are enhanced with the ability to have their own metadata, workflows, and home page. The Document Sets feature is only available with the pay versions of SharePoint Server 2013. To use Document Sets, the feature must be active at the Site Collection level. Once activated, there will be a new Document Set content type in the Site Collection's content type gallery. To best take advantage of the enhancements offered by Document Sets, you should create custom content types that inherit from the Document Set content type.
