Microsoft® SharePoint® Foundation 2013: Site Administrator


Description Microsoft® SharePoint® 2013 helps people collaborate and use familiar applications and web-based tools to create, access, store, and track documents and data in a central location. SharePoint can also help organizations segment digital information, share information from external sources, archive records, and automate business processes. SharePoint has many features that can help organizations manage the flow of digital information, automate processes, and help organizations manage records. In this course, you will learn how to create, configure, and manage a SharePoint site collection so that your team or organization can collaborate effectively, manage the flow of digital information, automate business processes, and meet records management needs.
