Sharepoint is a huge tool with many functions that would take a vast amount of webspace to explain. Thankfully, people have already taken the time to put together those resources, and you can find them at the bottom of this webpage. In the meantime, this page should give you an overview of how to access Sharepoint, and utilize some of the most common features.
As long as you have permissions to the site, you should be able to enter in the full website address and log in with your NetID. The important part is knowing the full website address of your Sharepoint site. Unfortunately, it is not possible to go to https://sharepoint.unr.edu and navigate to your site. For security reasons, it is not possible to search for, or view a directory listing of, the many Sharepoint sites at the University. The vast majority of Sharepoint sites begin with
https://sharepoint.unr.edu/sites/... and this is then followed by the abbreviation of the department name. Your department administrator should be able to point you to the correct location, otherwise please contact IT Support.
If you have verified that your NetID is working elsewhere, please check these three troubleshooting steps:
Creating a basic page with texts and images.
Utilizing Sharepoint lists to keep track of resources.
Storing documents on Sharepoint for the department to access and edit.
