SharePoint Essentials

Why should you, your company, and employees use SharePoint? Well, that’s easy… SharePoint is the leading business collaboration platform for the enterprise and the web. It allows individuals in an organization to easily create and manage their own collaborative Web sites. SharePoint greatly simplifies how people find and share information to enable better informed and timely decisions. With this platform, individuals and groups can have a collaborative web site where access can be limited to your team and any others you decide to grant access. Any type of files (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, PDF, images, video, audio, etc.) can be centrally stored, accessed, edited, and maintained. There are basically no file types that cannot be stored on SharePoint. Best of all, you need only to have knowledge of three simple things: Internet/Web browsing, Microsoft Windows, and Microsoft Office concepts. This course will step you through the process as a site user and owner… so, let the collaboration begin!
