SharePoint Products and Technologies Customization Best Practices

This section describes best practices for many common types of customizations and whether they are supported in Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies. Customization, as used in this section, means any addition to, change to, or removal of the settings, content, and templates provided by SharePoint Products and Technologies. Unless otherwise specified, the descriptions in this documentation apply to all SharePoint Products and Technologies, including Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.


The topics in this documentation do not address every potential type of customization within SharePoint Products and Technologies; the intention is to address the most commonly requested types of customization. As newly identified customization types and descriptions of best practices become available, we will update this documentation.
