What will I learn?

Full Course Details

This course is aimed at users who need to build both an intranet site and a SharePoint site for document management. This course is also for those users who are supporting others managing SharePoint sites. This course is based on using both the SharePoint COMMUNICATIONS site template and the TEAMS site template.

On completion of this course, delegates will be able to:

  • Design and create an intranet site taking account of best practice models
  • Design and create a document management site taking account of best practice models
  • Delegates will understand the features of SharePoint Online and its role in Microsoft 365

This course is classed as a technical course and delegates should be used to working in browsers such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

The training can be delivered either in your own Microsoft 365 tenant or alternatively, a separate training tenant can be provided by TrainingU.

This course covers both creating an intranet site and document management area. Should you require only one of these, please refer to our separate courses: Build a SharePoint Intranet Site or Build a SharePoint Document Management Area.
