How to create a new SharePoint site
Now that you know a little bit more about what SharePoint is and some of its benefits, let’s walk through how to create a new site!
First, go to your company’s main website. On the top right-hand corner, there should be a login bar – click on “sign-in” and enter your credentials. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see a list of options down the left-hand side of the page. Under “SharePoint”, select “Create Site”. This will take you to another page where you can fill out all of the information for your new site. Be sure to choose an appropriate title and description, as well as set up any security restrictions that are necessary. You’ll also need to decide if you want to use the standard template or create a custom one. When you’re finished, click “Create” and your site will be live! That’s all there is to it – creating new SharePoint sites has never been easier!
Adding content to your site
Once you’ve created a new SharePoint site, there are lots of ways to add content and move things around. For example, if you want to upload documents or other media such as images – all you have to do is click the “Files” tab on your toolbar at the top of the page. From here, select “Upload Document” and go from there!
You can also create folders for organization purposes just like in any file management software. Simply highlight whatever item (file or folder) that you would like to put into a newly-created parent folder by holding down your left mouse button over it and dragging it onto the desired location. Once complete, release your mouse where you’d like this screen below:
This method will allow team members to upload files and other team members to easily access them.
Creating lists, libraries, and pages
In addition to uploading files, you can also create lists and libraries which will help keep your team organized and on track. Lists are great for tracking data such as tasks or contact information, while libraries work best for storing documents or media. In order to create a new list or library, go to the “Lists” or “Library” tab in the toolbar at the top of your page. From here, select either “Create List” or “Create Library”. You’ll then be able to fill out all of the necessary information including name, description, and columns that you want to be included in your list/library.
Pages are another way of adding content to your site – they’re similar to blog posts but without comments enabled. To create a new page, go to the “Pages” tab in your toolbar and select “Create Page”. You’ll then be able to fill out the title, body, and other settings for your page.
Once you’ve created all of the necessary content for your SharePoint site, it’s time to start training users on how to use it! This can be done through in-person sessions or online webinars. Be sure to provide clear instructions on how they can best take advantage of SharePoint’s features in order to improve their productivity.
Saving files in Sharepoint
In Sharepoint, files can be saved in two ways:
-Uploading a file to the site and saving it from there
-Saving a link to a file that is located on another website or server
The first way is pretty self-explanatory – just upload the document you want to save into the Files tab and it will automatically be added to your library. The second method is useful if you want to keep all of your company’s documents in one place. To do this, go to the “Links” tab in your toolbar and select “Add New Link”. You’ll then be able to enter the information for the document including its title, URL, and description. This document then appears in your Links list where team members can access it.
That’s all there is to know when it comes to getting started with Sharepoint!
