What is Microsoft Sharepoint?
Microsoft SharePoint is a web-based collaboration platform integrated with Microsoft Office. It is primarily used for storing, organising, sharing, and accessing information from any device with a web browser. SharePoint facilitates collaboration within organisations by providing a centralised platform for document management, workflow automation, and intranet development.
Key features of Microsoft SharePoint
Manage documents securely
SharePoint enables users to store documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and other types of files in a centralised location. It provides version control, check-in/check-out functionality, and the ability to set permissions for different users or groups.
Collaborate with others
Departments and teams of people can collaborate on documents and projects in real-time. SharePoint supports features like co-authoring, comments, and notifications, fostering better communication and teamwork.
SharePoint can be used to create and customise intranet sites called Sharepoint Hub sites, which serve as a central place for internal communication, announcements, and important information.
SharePoint includes workflow capabilities that allow organisations to automate business processes. Users can design workflows to manage tasks, approvals, and other processes, improving efficiency and consistency.
Integration with Microsoft 365
SharePoint seamlessly integrates with Microsoft 365 applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. This integration simplifies document creation, editing, and sharing directly within the SharePoint environment.
Maximum Security and Permission Setting
SharePoint provides robust security features, allowing administrators to set permissions at various levels, from individual documents to entire sites. This ensures that sensitive information is accessible only to authorised users.
Fully Customisable to Business Needs
SharePoint is highly customisable, allowing organisations to tailor it to their specific needs. Developers can create custom workflows, web parts, and applications using SharePoint’s extensibility features.
