Best-PracticesSharePoint Best Practices Reports

SharePoint farms contain hundreds of different settings for Web Applications, Site Collections, Service Applications and other components that make SharePoint such an amazing platform for collaboration. Maintaining all these settings can be a difficult job, though, especially when there is more than one in-house administrator or a partner company is providing SharePoint services.

Built-in and Custom Reports

Best Practices reports in Documentation Toolkit for SharePoint come in two flavors: built-in Best Practices reports that are included with the product and custom Best Practices reports that you can create on your own.

Best practices reports

The built-in reports are based on an array of best practices, including TechNet SharePoint 2010 Operational best practices and SharePoint 2013 Operational best practices, known SharePoint software capacity and limits and other community based best practices.

Create and export Best Practices reports

We know that SharePoint admins all have their own sets of best practices, so we designed Documentation Toolkit to allow you to define yours, export them, and share them with other admins.
