What is SharePoint?
SharePoint is a technology platform that enables organizations to improve business efficiency and team productivity. SharePoint helps teams stay connected and productive by providing an infrastructure that allows easy access to people, documents, and information. Content in SharePoint is organized around sites, libraries, and lists.
With SharePoint, teams can
- Create sites to share information, co-author documents, review documents, and track versions;
- Store files in a shared library, discuss ideas; coordinate projects, share calendars, schedules;
- Build task lists, data lists; customize views; and much more…
Why transition to SharePoint?
SharePoint provides options to (a) improve efficiency with locating documents and information; (b) enhance and facilitate collaboration; and (c) encourage and support paperless operations.
What to expect during the transition?
We have developed a roll out plan intended to move all departments to SharePoint by the end of this year. The focus of this phase, Phase I, is on three fundamental tasks:
- Moving content,
- Site design, and
- Basic SharePoint training.
Once the transition from the F:drive is complete, we’ll move on to Phase 2. The focus of Phase 2 will be on continued education and adoption, including ongoing development (documentation and tutorials), more in depth training, and community/social outreach (e.g., a blog/vlog, best practices, knowledge sharing etc.). Phase 2 will also include refining your site design.
