When a Microsoft Office group is created, a Sharepoint website is automatically created that is tied to that group. To access the Sharepoint site after creating a group:

  1. Navigate to outlook.office.com in a web browser.
  2. On the left side, select the group name.
  3. Click the three dots (...) beside the calendar icon.
  4. Select Site.

Users can also request SharePoint sites through IT Services. Send ITS the following information and ITS can create the SharePoint site:

  • Desired Name
  • Owner(s)
  • List of Members (usernames)
  • Business Case
  • Public or Private
    • Public: everyone in the organization can see the site
    • Private: only members can see the site
