SharePoint is a web-based collaboration platform developed by Microsoft. It is essentially a content management system that enables organizations to store, organize, share, and manage digital information more efficiently. SharePoint allows users to create sites for specific projects or teams and provides a hierarchical structure for organizing content into lists and libraries. It also includes features such as document management, workflow management, business intelligence, social networking, search functionality, and much more.
Let’s take a closer look into how to navigate SharePoint.
Having a document storage solution that is secure is important. In SharePoint you can also search for documents if you need to find them quickly. Below are steps to take to search in SharePoint.
In SharePoint, a site is a collection of web pages, lists, document libraries, and other resources that share a common purpose or function. A site can be used for a variety of purposes, such as team collaboration, project management, document sharing, or public-facing websites.
Each site in SharePoint has its own unique URL, security settings, and content. Sites can also contain subsites, which are smaller sites nested within a larger site. Subsites inherit many of the same properties and features of the parent site, but can also have their own unique settings and content.
Sites in SharePoint are organized into a hierarchical structure, with a top-level site serving as the main entry point for the site collection. This allows users to easily navigate between sites and subsites within the collection and locate the information they need.
