SharePoint

SharePoint is a cloud-based collaborative service.

It enables departments, schools, and project members to share and collaborate with other faculty/staff, students, and researchers. With SharePoint, you can create collaborative websites that can be used to share files, assign tasks, start blogs, calendars, manage workflows, etc., from anywhere — at the office, at home, or from a mobile device.  

SharePoint FAQ

Getting Started

In conjunction with each school and administrative department at UMB, CITS is working on rolling out SharePoint and converting previous classic sites to the modern workspace. The Modern Workspace utilizes Microsoft Teams and Groups and has many additional features available, including rolled-up news and site activities, shared search across related sites, cross-site navigation, easier to collaborate and share information and services with others, and ability to move/reorganize sites if a department/project needs to move to another area. Each school/department will be contacted when its team site is ready and all employees in the respective school/department will have access. If you are interested in using SharePoint immediately, please complete the Teams request form.

Document library

Note: When creating a new document library, the document library name should not have any spaces. You can adjust the name and add a space after it is created.
