What is SharePoint and how to use it within your Office 365 account?

Transcript

Hey guys, welcome to Bremmar’s video series on the Office 365 apps. I’ll be running through SharePoint Online today, a powerful document management and intranet solution based on the Office 365 cloud environment. It simplifies the day-to-day employee workflow, facilitates content distribution and contribution, and provides a 360° view of business-critical information, anytime, anywhere and on any device.

SharePoint screen display

SharePoint makes collaborating with colleagues and sharing work easy, from within your Office applications, you can directly email the document link to your teammates. Everyone can work on the same copy, see the latest changes, and keeps the email size small.

It’s simple for teams to find and use key documents. You can set up quick links for easy access on the homepage of each site, rather than having to dig into long folder structures each time.

You can track changes and access all document versions. Each time you save a document, a new version is saved, with old versions accessible directly from the Office application you’ve opened it with, and without cluttering your file view with multiple versions. You also have the option to add comments as you save versions, informing other users what specific changes were made if required.

SharePoint mobile app

Always on the go rushing between meetings? With the SharePoint mobile app you can seamlessly access company documents and images on your mobile. Alternatively, any computer with an internet connection can give you access to your site with the appropriate credentials.

SharePoint is simple to administer and navigate, with each page including a navigation bar allowing you to edit, check in/out, edit properties and create alerts. You can add security levels and give different people or departments different levels of access.

Final thoughts

In a nutshell, SharePoint can provide links to all your documents and present them in an organised fashion. On top of that, Microsoft has included a plethora of features that go beyond document storage and organisation, providing your SharePoint solution with the flexibility to be as simple, or as intuitive as your organisation desires.
