Configuring a SharePoint Team Site
Posted by Bart Chellis, Last modified by Bart Chellis on 07 September 2017 02:07 PM

So the Technology Department has just set you up with a new SharePoint Team Site for your department and given you admin privaledges.  Now what?

Well, the site is ready to use as is and allows you to save and access files in the Documents folder on this site.

However, as this is a Team Site, you can modify the site and set permissions you desire for visitors (non-team members) and contributors (team members).  You can host informational content for visitors on the main page or a departmental calendar or many other things.  You can modify the permissions so visitors can only view certain content or files, while contributors can edit and create content or files.

Adding people to your team site or changing their permissions

  1. On the Team Site, click Settings Gear shaped settings button 
  2. Click on Site Settings
  3. Under Users and Permissions click Site collection administrators.
    Site collection administrators highlighted under users and permissions
  4. Add or remove names in the Site Collection Administrators box, and then click OK.
