Please ask the owner of your department’s website to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, username, the site(s) they would like you to have access to, and the level of access you should be granted upon completion of training. We will send you an email with further instructions on how to access the training videos.
A SharePoint teamsite is a web-based document sharing and
collaboration space available to DePaul departments and committees.
Members of a teamsites can view and edit documents from any computer with an internet
connection. Teamsites work particularly well with Microsoft Word,
PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote documents, allowing members to directly view or
edit a document in either a browser or in the application.* Each teamsite
is controlled by one or more site owners who grant permissions for the site,
allowing groups of users the ability to view or edit the entire site, or just
portions of the site.
DePaul offers several options for file storage and digital collaboration.
DePaul Employees: In addition to SharePoint teamsites, DePaul faculty, staff, and student employees can store and collaborate on documents using Box or DePaul's network W drives .
Students: Although DePaul students can be added to a department or committee's teamsite by a faculty or staff member, teamsites are not available to students for personal use. However students can store and collaborate on documents using either Box or Office 365/OneDrive for Students.
To request a new teamsite, please email email@example.com Include the site's owner(s), division, department, title of committee (or purpose of site), and whether or not you require training.
