Im using sharepoint 2010 wss enterprise. My company wants to setup a collaboration site. The kind of site where people can make announcements to everyone, share documents with everyone, have team/project sites, share calendars, misc lists etc. This would be departmental in nature.
What im confused about is what template to start with. How do i create the homepage? Is it a blank site that has features enabled for collaboration? Is it a teamsite template that wraps around other teamsite templates? Basically I want a home page with departmental links to collaboration sites. Ive given up on the idea of sprinkling in any publishing because it looks like a nightmare to try and combine the two.
