What is a small agency sharepoint intranet site?
Like we mentioned above, an intranet site is a mini ‘world wide web’ – that can only be used by a business. There are a number of ways you can create one. In this article, we will be discussing how to create one using SharePoint.
SharePoint is extremely useful because it provides you with basic blocks to start building your intranet site. This program allows you to skip all of the coding and tricky ways to customize.
When using this software, they suggest you think about who your audience is, your business goals and the pros and cons of what you are doing now and why you want to change it.
SharePoint works more per site, per project, per task and provides all the tools needed to run campaigns. It allows you to sync the files and folders currently needed, locally to your computer. This ensures that your computer does not slow down.
When you are finished with the data, you can un-sync with peace of mind that all the data is still stored in SharePoint, in the cloud. This way, your employer can access these folders whenever necessary.
How you can create a sharepoint intranet site
To begin, you need to create a local area network so that all of your digital tools are connected under the same LAN. Next, you need to choose a web server and install this. The intranet page you create can only be viewed if you do so. Next, you can then design it. This is the time you can personalize your web page based on what your business looks like and what works best for you. As a design agency, this is the fun part for us!
Before creating an intranet site with SharePoint for your small agency, you need to consider what sites you will want to create. Some common examples could include communication sites, home sites, news, hub sites and forms.
A SharePoint look book exists where you can get an idea and feel for designs that you can use in your own Intranet sites. It is not difficult to make it simple and sleek if you look at the ideas already provided.
There are a lot of steps to follow when starting to make your site. We will go through the basics in this article.
To start, you need to access the SharePoint admin center. When in the Active Sites section, you should be able to create a new site type. There are many types to choose from, so it’s up to you to choose which one suits your business best.
After this, you have to input some basic information like site name, address and owner. This means you now have a new and blank active site. Changing the look is the next step. Some things you can edit could include creating a custom theme, changing the footer/logo, and you can even edit the title.
There really are endless possibilities!
