University staff and postgraduate researchers have access to Microsoft SharePoint.
SharePoint is a browser-based document management and collaboration platform.
We use SharePoint to provide an accessible space for:
- information sharing
- data collection
Ways to use SharePoint
You can use SharePoint:
- for community sites that bring together sources of information in one place, for example for a particular user group, team or department
- to encourage community engagement with University developments, for example using a project site to share updates, collect information via surveys and provide opportunities for community feedback through discussion boards
- as an online collaborative workspace for small teams to share documents, ideas and calendars that can be access from anywhere with an internet connection
- to share information via formal workspaces that manage documents through the use of version control and approval workflows
- to broadcast information to Strathclyde special interest groups with DS accounts (login used for PEGASUS), for example, with a blog
- to create collaborative documents through wikis, for example policy documents
- to streamline and automate business processes through secure online forms and workflows that include validation and business logic, for example application forms that are routed for review and ranking
