What is a SharePoint team site?

Manage your SharePoint team site settings

A SharePoint team site connects you and your colleagues to the content, information, and apps you need everyday.

Let's look at the homepage.

Here, you'll see the latest happenings with your team, such as news posts and other information.

You can select Add if you'd like to create a post.

When someone adds or edits something on the site -- like a file, page, or list -- Activity lets you see this at a glance.

On the left navigation pane, you'll see a Search box to look for files on the site.

The links underneath include Conversations where you can view ongoing discussions among your team ...

And a default document library where everyone can store and share files.

If you have permission to edit your site, select New to add a List, Document library, Page, News post, or App to the site.

And if you need to manage your site, select Pages or Site contents.
