What it offers

SharePoint Online is a space to store and collaborate on documents and other content. You can make use of its powerful document management capabilities to create workflows and automate tasks.

Key features

  • Document libraries with built-in document management features to tag and organise content
  • Custom lists/databases to store and search information
  • Create basic web or wiki pages with images and design options
  • Project management apps such as task lists and timelines

Why we have two SharePoints

The University has used SharePoint 2013 for a few years, and it will continue to run until December 2021.

SharePoint Online is new, and as such offers new features and an improved, modern appearance.
