  • An improved search results layout categorizes information and includes better descriptions and metadata. Search results also display the people in your social circle at the top.

Collaboration & site management

  • Use the co-authoring feature in SharePoint 2010 to work simultaneously with others on Word documents and PowerPoint presentations.
  • Display multiple SharePoint and Exchange calendars on one page, and quickly add events without leaving the calendar.
