This Introduction to SharePoint 2019 class is for end users working in a SharePoint 2019 environment. It is an abbreviated version of our complete SharePoint End User class and is intended for people new to using SharePoint who will not be responsible for managing a SharePoint site.

SharePoint is a collaboration tool at its heart. Its primary goal is to make it easy for users to find and share information and there are many features built into SharePoint to facilitate this. SharePoint’s library system feature can provide a superior alternative to the traditional file server. SharePoint lists can be an easy-to-design and easy-to-use alternative to sharing spreadsheet files or more formal database tables. Both lists and libraries can be customized and extended to provide enhanced appearances and functionality, such as calendars and blogs, to name a couple. All of this collaboration can be done through a browser interface and in some cases through integration with Microsoft Office applications.

is that each item in a library has a underlying document. Libraries are, like lists,
a fundamental building block in a SharePoint site.

Module 4: Working with Lists and Library Views

Views provide a flexible system to display SharePoint list and library data in an
easy-to-read and easy-to-use manner. Every SharePoint list and library can have
multiple views created and configured, and some list and library templates come
with special views preconfigured. Views can be defined for personal use or shared

Module 5: Office Integration
One of the nice features of SharePoint is its ability to integrate with Microsoft Office
applications. Just about every Office application offers some level of integration
with SharePoint whether it be simple, such as using an Excel spreadsheet to create
a new list, or more full featured, such as Outlook integration. Some integration
features enhance what is available online through a browser while others allow
access to SharePoint content offline such as a mobile computer environment.

Outlook Integration
Access Integration

  • Create a list from an Excel spreadsheet.

Module 6: Working with Sites
All SharePoint content is accessed through a site. A SharePoint site is the container
for lists and libraries and provides a starting point for basic administration. The
content, lists, libraries, and basic look and feel of a site is initially determined by
the Site Template used to create the site.
