What is SharePoint Online?

SharePoint Online is a collection of cloud- and web-based technologies that makes it easy for groups to create, share, and collaborate more effectively.

     IMPORTANT: UIS only provides a mechanism for creating a basic SharePoint Online site – it is down to the user to customise the site to use any additional functionality beyond a basic Document Library.

UIS does not provide techincal support for the administration and use of SharePoint Online beyond the creation and deletion of sites for Institutional IT staff.


Collaboration features

'Out-of-the-box', a University SharePoint Online site can be used to:

  • Publish web pages (to share with anyone who has a Microsoft user account)
  • Share and sync files
  • Work together on documents at the same time
  • Assign tasks and automate reminders
  • Track deliverables
  • Access files from anywhere with an internet connection
  • Add any user with a Microsoft account
  • Work on mobile devices.

 

Add apps to help you achieve more...

Under the Settings menu, you can install more apps to add functionality, including:

  • Shared calendars
  • Photo libraries
  • Wiki libraries
  • Issue tracking
  • Workflows for Office 365
  • Surveys
  • Announcements
