How to use SharePoint Online
SharePoint Online is a cloud-based service that helps you share and collaborate with colleagues and partners, internally and externally. Build group sites where you can store, share and access documents, and other information from anywhere — at the office, at home, or from a mobile device. Access SharePoint via the 365 online App Launcher to view your SharePoint Group sites in one place.
All staff and students can access and create SharePoint team sites via the 365 SharePoint app. The app offers capability to create SharePoint sites linked to Office 365 Groups for collaborative working, and see a personalised view of your frequently visited sites. Setting up a 365 Group automatically creates a SharePoint workspace where files can be stored, shared and worked on together. Create a new SharePoint Team site from your personalised 365 SharePoint app landing page by clicking 'Create Site'. You can 'follow' a site by clicking on the star icon next to the title or by clicking 'Follow' in the top right screen of the site.
SharePoint Group/Team Sites are recommended for smaller groups wishing to collaborate on documents.
College’s central SharePoint navigation
To access College's main SharePoint landing page from the 365 SharePoint app view, click on 'Faculty Navigation'. If your faculty/department/group has a SharePoint Online site you can navigate to your local site using the icons. Not all faculties/departments have a home site. To set up a new faculty/department level SharePoint Online site within the College navigation, contact the ICT Service Desk or raise a Service Request.
