Frequently Asked Questions About SharePoint Consulting

What is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a web-based collaborative system that incorporates workflow applications, list databases, and other security features to facilitate collaboration and communication between business teams. Its highly customizable platform is designed for diverse industries and businesses across Canada.

What is SharePoint used for?

SharePoint is used to facilitate content management, business process automation, and collaboration among teams within an organization.

Its customizable platform allows employees to work together to create specific solutions and establish standard practices for recording data, document publishing, and sharing information. SharePoint is designed to provide enhanced security, compliance improvements, and business support with zero maintenance.

How does SharePoint work?

Using advanced SharePoint workflows and applications, SharePoint allows organizations to create advanced and flexible intranet sites. Users can access these sites to create, view, organize, and manage information.

SharePoint is an integral part of the Microsoft 365 suite and can be integrated with various Microsoft applications, including Teams, OneDrive, and Power Platform.

What is a SharePoint document library?

A SharePoint document library is a location on a site where users can upload, update, create, and collaborate on various files with internal team members. This library is linked in your files tab in Microsoft Teams and is available in your library viewer web parts which are loaded on your SharePoint team site’s home page.

How to create a SharePoint site

If you’re interested in creating a SharePoint site, a SharePoint consultant can help you through the initial steps and ensure you have the information and resources to create your ideal site.

They will make sure you have a Microsoft 365 account and that you’re set up with the right user privileges. Once you’re set up, you’ll find SharePoint on the app menu, and you’ll be prompted to choose between creating a team or communication site. A communication site includes company updates and HR announcements, while a team site involves employee collaboration and communication.

How to create a list in SharePoint

SharePoint lists allow you to track inventory, contacts, routines, and issues using the program’s custom configurations.

First, locate a modern SharePoint site in your Microsoft 365 services, then select New > List from the command bar.

To create your own list panel you’ll need to title your project and select Create, where you’ll be redirected to the Projects list. Once you’ve arrived, select + Add Column followed by an Owner and Person column type. In the Create a Column panel, enter:

  • Name: Owner
  • Description: Project owner

Lastly, to add this new column to the Projects list, select Save, and you’ve just created your first SharePoint list.

SharePoint vs. OneDrive

While both SharePoint and OneDrive provide users with a space to access files online and are a part of Microsoft 365, each program offers unique capabilities that can determine which is a greater benefit to businesses in Canada.

SharePoint’s capabilities go beyond storing files. This program allows teams to connect over business-related documents and circulate company updates with greater efficiency. SharePoint sites have two main functions. The first is a team site, which allows users to share content and resources and collaborate on files. The second is a communication site, which allows users to create short and long-form updates within a team or the entire company.

OneDrive is a cloud-based service that lets multiple users work on files simultaneously with remote access and share various files and folders. OneDrive can instantly sync files, allowing users to access them on multiple devices and is best suited for clients looking for personal storage solutions.

Why do companies use SharePoint?

Companies use SharePoint because it’s known as the most trusted technology for intranet networks and is recognized as an industry standard. It provides a wide range of intranet features, including asset libraries, document and task management, and security information management.
