Microsoft Office Groove Setup Metadata MUI English 2007

What is Microsoft Office Groove Setup Metadata MUI English 2007?

Microsoft Office Groove is a desktop application designed for document collaboration in teams with members who are regularly off-line or who do not share the same network security clearance. It is also used as a staging system for documents in development, where content can be developed then transferred to a portal when complete. Groove's core concept is the shared workspace, which consists of a set of files to be shared, plus some aids for group collaboration. Groove users can create workspaces, add documents, and invite other Groove members to a workspace. A user that responds to an invitation is made an active member of that workspace. Each member has a privately editable copy of the workspace. Users interact and collaborate in the common workspace which is a private virtual location.
