One of the many decisions users experience with SharePoint is to decide which of the various types of web parts should be used, how to configure the web part for what is needed or deciding to create a customized web part to accomplish what is needed. In this series, “Default Web Parts in SharePoint”,  I will review some of SharePoint’s Out-of-the-Box (OOTB) web parts that can be used to display a variety of data or even change how your pages are displayed within the browser.

When organizations deploy SharePoint and users start building their sites, the questions will start being asked “which web part can I use?” The options are plenty with the availability of content-based, business data, filter, search, social collaboration, Outlook and other web parts. Knowing which part will do the job will save you time and create more value to your site visitors and your business.
