What is a SharePoint collaboration site?
SharePoint collaboration sites are the standard site type in SharePoint, intended to share content, information and resources within a team (which is why collaboration sites are also called team sites). Another type are SharePoint communication sites, which are meant for announcements and a top-down information flow.
What are some SharePoint best practices for team collaboration sites?
Decide on the purpose and content of your team collaboration site first, then build the site around it. Make sure to check visibility on mobile devices as well. Pay attention to your navigation and links – customize them to provide the best possible experience for your users.
How can I use SharePoint to collaborate on a document?
SharePoint document collaboration is a powerful feature. Co-authoring with two or more persons on a document allows you to work more efficiently. There are no doubts about which version of a document is the latest, current version. One thing is important to know about SharePoint file collaboration: In SharePoint, files are “checked out” when you want to work on them. Whether it is an Excel file with multiple users, or a PowerPoint collaboration, there can only be one user actively working on the file at any time. This user needs to “check out” the file to work on it, and check it in after they are finished. This prevents any synchronization problems.
Can I use SharePoint for external collaboration?
Yes, using SharePoint for external collaboration is possible. There are options for external sharing of documents or sites, with detailed setting options for user rights.
