Microsoft SharePoint Online and the IU Web Content Management Service

Note:

The SharePoint on-premises service is being replaced by SharePoint Online, available since July 2016. For more, see About the SharePoint retirement.

  • 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 2, 2017; UITS prefers to have sites migrated to SharePoint Online by March 31, 2017.
  • SharePoint My Sites have also been disabled, and will be permanently retired on March 31, 2017.

The Microsoft SharePoint Online service is not intended to replace the IU Web Content Management System (WCMS). SharePoint Online is an excellent tool for creating intradepartmental websites that require users to authenticate to gain access, and is also excellent for collaboration and file sharing. Such functionality is often needed in "internal" websites.

The WCMS is the preferred tool for publishing to websites that represent IU to the public (anonymous access). UITS strongly encourages the IU community to use the WCMS service for such external sites, and to limit SharePoint use to internal sites.

Note:
All web pages accessible to the public must adhere to IU Brand and Accessibility web standards.
