SharePoint can be used to set up Web sites to share information with others, manage documents from start to finish, and publish reports. The most common use of SharePoint at FAU is to serve as a document collaboration tool. Files can be uploaded to departmental or personal sites and shared out amongst specified people.
How to use SharePoint
All FAU employees (faculty & staff) may begin using their personal SharePoint site by navigating to https://sharepoint.fau.edu and clicking their name in the top right corner and then selecting 'My Site'. To request a group or departmental site, a ticket may be placed with the service desk to have a new site provisioned. When placing the request, please specify the name of the department or group the site is for and who the primary owner will be. Service desk tickets may be placed here: http://helpdesk.fau.edu
