Module 1: An Introduction to SharePoint 2019
Let’s get started with SharePoint 2019 by letting you know about its fantastic selection of features. We will demonstrate popular uses of SharePoint 2019 to manage and share content, create engaging web page, automate business processes and work in real time with co-authoring. We will also discuss who will be the typical users in our sites and the role of the site collection administrator. Site Owners are trusted with functionality that in other business systems would normally only be available to developers. As a new Site Owner we’re sure that you will be amazed with the potential that SharePoint 2019 has to offer an end user.

As a site owner, you will be presented with a selection of site templates.

We will also show you best practices when creating multiple pages and linking them together. In most site templates, creating and managing web pages is a simple, fast and rewarding way to present essential information and apps. SharePoint can also be used as an Intranet for internal news. Due to the high visibility of these web sites, it is common to place more control over the release of new web pages or updates to existing pages. For this reason, SharePoint has publishing sites and communication sites.

Apps are required to store information such as events, contacts and files in a site.

Apps can be broken down into Lists, Libraries and Market Place Apps. SharePoint lists serve as the structure for calendars, discussion boards, contacts, and tasks. This module explains the concept of lists, and then reviews popular options. A document library is a location on a site where you can create, collect, update, and share files including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF. We will show you the benefits of using a library and teach you how best to work with files in a library.

As a site owner, you can customise permission levels. This means that you can create levels of access that are aligned with the responsibilities of your sites users. An example of this would be allowing a group of users the ability to upload content but not delete content.
