SharePoint wikis provide a great way for users to collaborate in the creation of content. Working documents that were once passed around by e-mail can be shared as wikis that provide change tracking and ensure that everyone is viewing the most recent updates. Unfortunately, the lack of a simple way to import and export documents to and from SharePoint wikis limits their use. Bamboo's Wiki Publisher was built to overcome these limitations. This integrated SharePoint feature allows you to both quickly import existing Microsoft® Word documents into wikis, and also effortlessly publish native SharePoint wikis as Adobe PDF documents.
The Bamboo Wiki Publisher has the following features:
The Wiki Publisher is a feature that integrates into the native SharePoint menus of any Wiki Page Library. The product's import and export options can be controlled at the site level on an as-needed based through standard SharePoint administration. It is extremely easy to configure. The only setting required for each Wiki Page Library is to specify the SharePoint library where images embedded into the wikis should be stored.
To import a Microsoft® Word document into a wiki, just select the "Import from MS Word Document" menu item located under the New drop-down menu. Simply browse and choose the local file to import and a new wiki is created from the selected document. Images are automatically uploaded into a picture library and then embedded into the wiki itself. This allows you to create a new wiki based on existing MS Word content in seconds.
Publishing wiki content from Wiki Publisher's export feature is just as easy as importing. Single wiki pages can be exported from the item context menu or from a tool bar on the wiki page itself. For the ultimate in control over the format of your exported wikis, select the "Export Multiple Wiki Pages to PDF" option from the library Actions drop-down menu. This option will present you with a dialog containing options to customize the output generated by Wiki Publisher. Choose which wikis to include in the export, how they are ordered, and automatically insert page numbers and other useful formatting elements in the published document.
