I've created custom content types ...... Now what?

I'm BRAND NEW to Alfresco and I'm trying to boot up the Alfresco Community version to see if my company can use it for what it needs.

I followed Jeff Potts doc on creating custom content types and successfully have new data types for invoices, checks, bank statements, and contracts.  I know this because I can see those data types in Rules for folders.

Now, I need to create these new doc types, but I guess I'm not sure where next to go.  I'd like to have a mechanism where someone in accounting can add a file into Alfresco and Alfresco  will ask for the doc properties (like invoice number, payee, etc).

So, what's next?  Can I do that with out-of-the-box Share?  That would be awesome!  But I couldn't figure out how to make that happen.  Do I need to customize Share?

Thanks for any pointers you can provide.
