MS SharePoint 2013

MS SharePoint Team Site is a web based platform for collaboration within a team. SharePoint connects different technologies to one solution:

  • shared contacts,
  • calendars and tasks
  • wikis and document library

plus offering numerous features built upon each other which cover typical workflows of a organisation (e.g. administration of appointments, notifications, maintenance of a knowledge base and distribution of tasks). 

“Team Sites” features

Generally you can use all features that are included in the SharePoint 2013 standard edition. Authorisation levels "create" and higher enable you to add further apps to your team site.


A public live instance of a team site with subsites where you can test different SharePoint functionalities can be found here: SharePoint Training Site.
