SharePoint lists serve as the structure for calendars, discussion boards, contacts, and tasks. This module explains the concept of lists, and then reviews popular options.
A document library is a location on a site where you can create, collect, update, and share files including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF. We will show you the benefits of using a library and teach you how best to work with files in a library.

Over many years, we have come to understand and love a suite of Microsoft products including products like Outlook and Excel; most of these products have been with us for over ten years and often make the work we do possible.

Office 365 has introduced a range of new products causing much excitement and more than a little confusion. This class will help you to understand two of these newer products, Office 365 Groups and Teams.

We cover the specific details of how to use Groups and Teams, while also looking at the bigger picture to help you understand how you might use them in the real world to improve the way you share files and communicate as a business.

Finally, we discuss the administration process for Groups and Teams, with a review of the management options including security and controlling who can use the tools.
