Get Started with SharePoint Online

An Office 365 tutorial by Peter Kalmström

Office 365 logo SharePoint is Microsoft's platform for sharing and collaboration, and it is included in most Office 365 subscriptions. The Office 365 version of SharePoint is also called SharePoint Online.

When you subscribe to an Office 365 package where SharePoint is included, some SharePoint site collections are created automatically when the Office 365 tenant is set up. Most important of them is the team site.

The auto-created team site has some characteristics that distinguishes it from the team sites you create yourself:
  • All the tenant's users are by default added to the team site.
  • All users have Edit permission by default.
  • External sharing is enabled.
  • Custom scripts are not allowed.
