A customized solution for online collaboration.

Built on Microsoft SharePoint, WorkStation websites are online collaboration spaces that enable you to engage with colleagues, share ideas, and reinvent the way you work. You can create collaboration sites and share and store documents from anywhere you have an internet connection.

Customizable features include:

  • Share and edit documents, access a shared calendar, manage deadlines and tasks, post links, hold discussions, and more.
  • As a site owner, you can control who can access your site and files.
  • Ready-made templates get you started quickly, with basic components, such as document library, discussion board, contacts, announcements, calendar, and newsfeed.
  • Specialized tools for community builders, including sharing success stories, online technical assistance, and links to capacity-building tools.

People are talking. Here's what they're saying:

"This is perfectly aligned to fit [our project's] needs. I didn’t realize this technology already existed!"

- Director of a multi-site national initiative

"I consider the WorkStation and [Community Check Box] invaluable one-stop shopping for user-friendly supports. We have one-click access to a shared repository of information. Our project team and our grantee communities are spread out across the state. Given this geographic dispersal, we need a central location for information and a tool that supports communication, accessing resources, and managing timelines, and the WorkStation made that possible."

- Consultant for substance abuse prevention efforts

"If we had had this all along, we would have been so much better organized. Thank you, thank your team."

- WorkStation user involved with a multi-site prevention effort
