The collaboration suite helps users interact and create content together. This can be as simple as a quick conversation in the Message Boards app or as complex as joint file management via the Documents and Media Library. Users can Blog their experiences and share knowledge with the Wiki. Comments can be posted on all content. Integrated applications mean the whole is greater than the sum of the parts: together, users create something of value that couldn’t exist if they were working in isolation.

Underlying the collaboration suite is a set of powerful APIs so you can leverage these features in your own apps. For example, if your app lets users create a custom content type, you can tie into the collaboration suite’s social API to let users comment on and rate that content. You can also customize how your app’s users select items from the Documents and Media Library, send custom alerts and announcements, and much, much more. The tutorials in this section show you how.
