SharePoint Online: Get to know the Sites

SharePoint Online: Get to know the Sites

February 20, 2020 in Corporate IT Training, Microsoft, Microsoft 365/Office 365, Microsoft Office / by Elizabeth Granada

Your company intranet doesn’t have to be a black hole of everyone’s projects and information. By using SharePoint Online, you can tailor each user’s experience by creating sites that best suit each user’s needs. Not sure where to start? Take a look at these four commonly used sites and how they can streamline your internal communications.

Team Sites

Your Team site connects you to the information you use and collaborate on every day in your Office 365 team. Store your important files, share resources for your team to reference, or view any news or updates posted by site owners to keep your team up to date.


Communication Sites

Where a Team site limits information to only your O365 team in SharePoint Online, a Communication site is used to broadcast announcements to a wider audience, such as your entire organization. Collaboration is limited on a Communication site, think of instead using it as an online bulletin board for your organization.


Employee Facing Sites

Not everything on SharePoint Online must be visible to your entire organization. Build engagement within your teams on your Employee facing sites without risking sharing confidential documents. Keep secure documents and HR files away from prying eyes on your private sites, unsearchable by anyone who is not granted access.


Hub Sites

Keep your Communication sites, Team sites, and Employee Facing sites in order by using SharePoint Online Hub sites. You can use Hub sites to group sites by department, division, project, region, and more to showcase the most relevant content tailored each person in your company.
