At my previous gig we were just starting to implement SharePoint, and I was
heavily involved in the process. You need to find out which version of
SharePoint your office bought. When I was trying to learn my way around
SharePoint I'd bought a couple of books, and it seemed like all the cool
features were (of course) in the most expensive version of the software.
And (you guessed it) we'd bought the cheapest version, which didn't
actually do half of what we thought it could do.
My thoughts, from what little experience I had with it, are that Microsoft
designed SharePoint as a way to encourage people to purchase their
professional services. Almost everything we wanted to do with it seemed to
require upgrades, customization, or paid consulting services.
I hope you have better luck than I did.
