Looking for a collaboration work environment where you and your team can share information, and manage documents and files? SharePoint may be the tool for you!
What is SharePoint?
Microsoft SharePoint is a software platform and a family of software products developed by Microsoft for collaboration, file sharing and web publishing. Among its many features, SharePoint allows a defined community of users to manage documents and other work items for such activities as storing, editing, tracking, updating, publishing and archiving. Benefits to University employees currently participating in the SharePoint pilot program include increased employee engagement in the collaborative process, a means of capturing and sharing input from a broad range of participants, a reduction in e-mail communications, and archival history of a document's creative process from draft to final copy.
Requesting SharePoint Sites
ITS is currently conducting a pilot program to test the feasibility of using SharePoint sites to spawn and manage collaboration throughout the campus. If you would be interested in pilot testing a SharePoint site, please complete the request form and submit it to the ITS Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. ITS will create the site, but the requesting department is responsible for granting user access and managing the site.
