Welcome to the SharePoint Website Training site!
Our district has uses an application called Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007. It is a very powerful program to manage websites. You don't have to know HTML or be a web designer to maintain a website. You don't need any special software; all you need is a browser with an internet connection. The application works best in Internet Explorer 6 and above. It's very easy to manage a SharePoint website. Everything is menu driven and the menus you'll see are based on permissions you have in the website. The current district website is a SharePoint website.
You must be signed in to the website before you can make changes. I realize you're already signed in because you're reading this. I'm stating this because at some point, you'll need to let users of your site know how to sign in. The only reason they'll need to sign in is to see special sites created for employees only, sites not open to the public. To sign in:
- Click on the Sign In link at the top right part of the website
- In the Username field, enter our domain, a back slash (located under the Backspace key), and your network username, i.e., 'sdirc\smithj'
- Enter your network password
Once you're signed in, you'll see links appear in the top right part of the website. You'll see a link in the very top right labeled 'Site Actions'. This is the main editing menu and the starting point for managing your website.
