  2. Login to http://agile.community.pmi.org/ using your PMI profile username/password.
  3. Get comfortable with the layout and click path by flipping through the instructions here: http://agile.community.pmi.org/Pages/shareddocuments.aspx?Filter=Documents%2FSharePoint%20Tutorials
  4. Post something of value/interest as follows
    1. Make your profile publically viewable by clicking "make my profile visible" on this page: http://agile.community.pmi.org/Pages/members.aspx
    2. Pages from wiki can be copied here: http://agile.community.pmi.org/Pages/CreateWiki.aspx (Note the wiki pages in SharePoint are flat, and can not link to each other
    3. Flat files can be posted here: http://agile.community.pmi.org/Pages/shareddocuments.aspx
    4. Upcoming Events should be posted as announcements here: http://agile.community.pmi.org/Pages/AddAnnouncement.aspx (note: the calendar feature currently does not work)
    5. Create a threaded discussion related to PMI Agile
  5. Be sure to create an announcement highlighting your post, by clicking here:

Additional Notes:

  • The website has two kinds of admins: Sys Admin (PMI) vs. Site Admin (Council)
  • Right now, can't delete/modify the 7 default folders in Shared Documents . Will come soon.
  • Right now, can't redesign the home page. PMI investigating new color schemes.
  • Yes, they can help you import threaded discussions. A request has been submitted to import our Yahoo discussions.
  • Right now, only webinars can go into Calendar. In the future, you can add custom events.
  • Blogs are created by IT. They need 2 days lead time. Blogs are assigned to Users or Groups
  • Have asked PMI for list of estimated target dates for IT upgrades

I have uploaded a document but forgot to mention the author - I have no way to edit an submission?
Also, the "wiki" is not really a wiki. We can only edit content in HTML, which is pretty tedious... Any possibility to improve the wiki feature, or use a completely different one (ie. not Sharepoint)?

Hi Olivier - what browser are you using? I think you need to use IE to see the sharepoint wiki editing features. I agree it would be easier to use this site for the actual wiki though "-)
