Introduction to SharePoint Workshops  

Students looking at table in McNulty. Get a head start on navigating SharePoint and using it as a shared drive on your computer, without the need for a WorkSpaces or AppStream account. Similar to existing shared drives, SharePoint supports the collaboration and sharing of information within departments and throughout the university.

Microsoft SharePoint is a web-based platform that supports the collaboration and sharing of information within teams and throughout the university.

SharePoint has a similar interface as Microsoft365 and can be easily configured and adjusted by the user. You can use it for file sharing, web content management and document management. SharePoint also provides the benefit of a central location for storing and collaborating on documents, which can significantly reduce emails and duplicated work. It is also capable of keeping track of the different versions of documents created by different users. This workshop will cover the essentials needed to start using SharePoint today!
