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 vaildation and business logic, e.g. application forms that are routed for review and ranking.
