Here are 5 things that the trainer mentioned that may help us use it better:
- Explorer View - We've learned to use Actions > Open with Windows Explorer. Using explorer view allows you to do similar navigation, drag and drop but through the browser.
3. Search - It was more about understanding the search functionality. When you enter a search term, it has to be an exact match to a word in the file. It doesn't do partial searches. There is also a wait period after you upload a file for it to be indexed (it is dependent on the server crawler settings).
4. Creating Document directly on SharePoint - I tend to save a file locally and upload it but the trainer suggested we save time by creating the documents directly on SharePoint (using the "New" document). Also, when creating a document, you can put the url (e.g. https://team.ksbe.edu/sites/PSD/DL/DLSS/RFS216/Shared%20Documents/ you have to remove this portion of the URL "Forms/AllItems.aspx") directly into the save box and it will save the file directly to SharePoint.
5. Integrating with Outlook - This was more of a reminder. Syncing the SharePoint Calendar (Actions > Connect to Outlook) with your Calendar on Outlook allows you to do overlays and copy things from one calendar to the other.
I have a manual that anyone is free to take a look at :)
