What is a SharePoint on Line Team Site? – Part 1

O365 is fairly unconventional in its approach to grab millennials used to social media. Microsoft says "Functionality is introduced gradually to organizations" but in our experience its pace is a bit hard to manage from the stand point of user training. SimpleSharePoint provides SharePoint consulting to assist with those possible issues.

What is a SharePoint Team Site

A SharePoint team site connects you and your team to the content, information, and apps you rely on every day. For example, you can use a team site to store and collaborate on files or to create and manage lists of information. On a team site home page, you can view links to important team files, apps, and web pages and see recent site activity in the activity feed.


You access your team site from the SharePoint Home page, from the Files section of your Office 365 Group, or on the go with the SharePoint mobile apps. You can also find your SharePoint files in OneDrive.


At the top of a team site, you'll see the site logo, the name of the site, and whether the site is private (only approved members can view) or public (anyone in your organization can view).


If you have permission to edit the site, there's also a link at the top of the team site to add a new list, document library, page, news post, or web app to the site.


On the left-hand side of the site, at the top of the navigation pane, you'll see a search box where you can search for files on your team site. Suggestions are shown, as you type, based on files you've recently worked on or viewed. Press Enter to view a full list of search results displayed on a separate page where you can expand what's shown to include results for all SharePoint sites or refine the results to show only certain file types.


Under the search box, you'll also see links to the default team document library, the team OneNote notebook, site pages, site contents, and the site recycle bin. If you have permission to edit the site, you can add additional links or change the order of the links as needed.
