What is SharePoint Online?

Note:

SharePoint was retired on December 5th, 2016, with SharePoint Online as its replacement. If you are a SharePoint site owner whose site has been disabled, you can visit SharePoint Standard Farm Migration to request an extension/re-enable. SharePoint will be permanently disabled no later than June 2nd, 2016.

SharePoint My Sites have also been retired. If you are a My Site owner and need your My Site re-enabled, contact the Support Center before March 1.

SharePoint Online is a centralized, university-wide Microsoft Office SharePoint Server environment, providing sites for team collaboration and content management; see At IU, how do I request a SharePoint Online site for my team or department? (My Sites, a feature of the legacy UITS SharePoint environment, are not offered in SharePoint Online.)

The platform includes the following features and capabilities:

  • Collaboration and online content management
  • Document repositories to store, track changes in, and expire documents based on defined policies
  • Tight integration with Microsoft Office applications
  • Centralized search that is secure and context-aware, and permits granular control
  • Online document management providing easy collaboration and a centralized search
  • Social computing tools that allow communities to work together using wikis, blogs, and RSS feeds
