SharePoint Online is a powerful web-based platform developed by Microsoft for collaboration, file sharing, and web publishing. Cal State LA faculty and staff can use SharePoint as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from anywhere and on any device.
Requesting a SharePoint Site
Faculty and staff can request a SharePoint site by completing the SharePoint Site Request Form and submitting it to the ITS Help Desk located in the Library Palmer Wing Lobby. Once your request is processed, a SharePoint site will be created for your group and you will be notified via email. An individual from your group must assume the role of site owner, but may share those responsibilities as appropriate. Site owners are responsible for managing the site and granting user access.
Accessing Your SharePoint Site
When you are given access to your SharePoint site, you will receive an email with a link to the site. To access your SharePoint site, click the link in the email and log in with your MyCalStateLA ID account. Be sure to bookmark the site so you can easily access it later.
Microsoft’s SharePoint Help Center provides step-by-step tutorials on how to use SharePoint Online. Topics are organized into categories to help you quickly find the information you need.
Lynda.com offers SharePoint Online Essential Training which covers how to customize a SharePoint site, create and modify pages, work with libraries and lists, share sites or documents, manage permissions, and more. To access the course, you need to log in with your MyCalStateLA ID account.
If you have any questions or need assistance with SharePoint, please contact the ITS Help Desk.
