Design your team site

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Your Office 365 admin usually creates a team site for you, assigns a site owner, and then provides Edit permission to all your teammates. Three simple changes to your team site can go a long way: a meaningful title to promote discoverability, a logo to improve branding, and a good description to help others choose your site from search results.

Note: If for some reason you don’t have a team site, contact your Office 365 Admin who can create one for you.

Note: You need to be a member of the Designers group or have contributor permission to modify a team site. A safe way to practice changing a team site is to create and use a subsite under the team site. For more information, see Create a subsite under the existing site.

  1. Sign in to Office 365 with your work or school account, and then navigate to your team site (In the app launcher The app launcher icon in Office 365 , click Sites, and then locate your team site).
