Amazing work from the people at Brightwork, a company that creates site templates for project and portfolio management.
They have released a free version (no caveats) that you can download and use right away from their Project site template. The template extends out-of-the-box SharePoint 2010 and provides a collaborative workspace. The template contains libraries and lists, has metadata and views and provides dashboard views on the information. It also has some prefilled information and documents so you can see the power it beholds right away.
Why is it so cool ?
One of the things I like best from this solution is the way they have incorporated the views into tabs on the dashboard pages. Even if you don’t know SharePoint, you can see right away what types of information are available and you can start doing your work.
This template will run on SharePoint Foundation 2010, SharePoint Server 2010, and Microsoft SharePoint Online.
