This SharePoint WebPart is similar to “My Recent Documents”. It lets you view documents modified by others (thus excluding the current user), whether these files are in the current SharePoint site or in all sub-sites. The display allows for direct file access, direct viewing of CheckIn/CheckOut/modification information, and direct access to the directory. This SharePoint WebPart can be configured to exclude directories, sub-sites or file types.
The benefits are many: It lets you access your collaborator’s documents without bothering them or knowing their filing structure. It’s ideal for efficient documentation management.
