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.


The built-in reports are based on SharePoint community best practices, use them to check if your farm is configured properly

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.
