Can I hide documents that have a status other than approved in a documentSharePoint library?

In fact it’s just a couple of clicks to set this up in an existing library:

  1. Navigate to the library that needs this feature.
  2. From the Ribbon, click on the Library Settings button.
  3. Select Versioning Settings in the General Settings section of the screen.
  4. The very first setting (Content Approval) needs to be set to Yes.
  5. In the Draft Item Security setting , check either the 2nd or 3rd radio button depending upon the level of security you need.

How do I set up that Word co-authorship capability in my SharePointSharePoint environment?

Easiest question I answered that day! If you’re using SharePoint 2010 and Office 2010, the answer is, absolutely nothing! Simply have two or more users open the document from SharePoint. Choose to Edit the document from the banner above the document in Word. Voila! Co-authorship.

Can you post calendar and task items to SharePoint from Outlook?SharePoint

Yes! After connecting your SharePoint task list or calendar to Outlook, you can copy items from your calendar or task lists to the SharePoint copy. You can create a calendar item directly in Outlook 2010 and it will appear on SharePoint after a Send/Receive action (F9). With tasks, I’ve had mixed results with creating the SharePoint task folder in Outlook. However, you can create the task in your own tasks in Outlook and drag and drop it to the SharePoint folder.
