SharePoint at Manchester Met

Online spaces for your team and project groups to collaborate and share files.

What is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a web collaboration platform for staff and teams to work together.

By using SharePoint you can centrally store, manage and organise your content and data.

Best of all, SharePoint integrates with Office 365 applications, providing you and your team with a seamless experience for working together in the cloud.

SharePoint consists of websites called 'team sites' that use 'Lists' and 'Libraries' to store, manage and share information.

There are already many team sites being used across the University.

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.

What's the difference between SharePoint and OneDrive for Business?

OneDrive for Business is a place where you can store files from your computer into the cloud, and access them from any device, or share them with others.

As part of Office 365, OneDrive for Business lets you update and share your files from anywhere and work on Office documents with others at the same time.

A SharePoint team site is a place that users can collaborate on files, documents, and ideas. It is set up to facilitate two way communication between team members.

SharePoint offers a full range of document libraries, task lists, calendars, workflows, wikis, and other features to help a team communicate and collaborate.
