Guidance for using Microsoft SharePoint

What is SharePoint?

Microsoft SharePoint is an online collaboration platform for managing content, process and tasks that integrates with Microsoft Office.

SharePoint is useful for sharing documents and files to collaborate with colleagues and external users. Teams can benefit from features such as version control, document histories and integrate with Power Automate to create workflows to manage and process data. You can also edit documents on the go, using online versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

  • Supporting an administrative or key function in the University
  • Supporting a business improvement project in the University
  • Supporting a research project
