SharePoint is an online collaboration tool ideal for departments who need to centralize lists, documents, and discussions in one place, and limit the access given to those items. It is commonly used at the University for Project Managment, resource lists, and a central place to store employee's leave records.
Most departments on campus already have a dedicated SharePoint site. However, any SharePoint space can be created and managed for more specific groups if necessary. SharePoint has been set up to allow departments to manage access themselves, although a dedicated Systems Administrator is available if necessary. Please contact IT Support for more information.
