Description: The article is about sharepoint login. The author introduces how to use the Sharepoint Office 365 including how to create a new Office 365 Tenant, how to examine users’ setup, how to examine default SharePoint site collections and how to start performing hands-on labs from SharePoint.
We’re going to start by searching for office 365 and a prize trial. This Microsoft site shows office 365 Enterprise III, EIII stands for a particular plan of office 365. We’ll follow a link to free trial and provide the information requested. For the company name, I’m going to put pilothouse ABC, ABC university is going to be the name that we use throughout the course.
On the next page, I’m going to create a username for myself, my username is going to be pilothouse ABC.on microsoft.com, there is the full username, it’s possible to add your own domain but now we’re going to use the default domain that Microsoft provides for us.
That’s the page from which we can access all the office 365 information, we’re ready to go, we can bookmark the page, this is going to be our username, you can write that down so that you will remember it. You should write down your password. Those are the applications that we’re going to use such as SharePoint, it’s in a process of main setup.
I can already access the administrator site. First, I’ll start the installation of Office which will give us Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook OneNote and Info Path, let’s click install. This is going to install office, we’re going to click Next, we are going to click on user recommended settings.
We can sign in to the office with our account to make sure that it’s connected to our office 365 account. That’s our username, there is the password. In the meantime, we’re going to let office install in a background. If you scroll down, you could see that majority of the applications have been set up.
I’ll go to the admin application, this is the office 365 administration interface, it shows us that Exchange, Office 365 portal, Sharepoint, Skype for business, Yammer, Enterprise have been set up for us. We can access the admin sites of each one through this admin section, but before I go to SharePoint administration, let’s create some users.
There is only one user, we can add one user at a time or we can import a number of users. I’m going to select a file off the sample documents, we’ll create a number of users, there’s going to be 20 users. We’re going to set the location.
We have 25 licenses or 24 licenses available, for each user, we’re going to assign all the licenses so they’ll have access to SharePoint, Office Online, Skype for business, Office 365, ProPlus and Exchange. You can see that all the users were created, we have some temporary passwords. I’m going to save this information so I can use it later. Let’s put it a note that and save it on the desktop.
There are quite a few users now, for each user, we are able to do quite a few options. For example, Claire is a regular user, but we could promote her to a global administrator or we could give her a specific limited role such as SharePoint administrator in which case you wouldn’t have access to the entire office 365 administration and the SharePoint administration.
It’ll suffice to have one user that has full access to everything, let’s scroll down and let’s click on SharePoint. You can see that a new tab opens up and we’re going to expand the address bar, the URL is pilothouse ABCadmin.SharePoint com, that’s the default URL for the SharePoint admin Center within office 365. Since we’re getting warned to set the time zone, let’s make sure that we set the time zone.
I’m choosing Pacific and I’m clicking Save. How do we get back to the admin application? We can go the long way by clicking on the application launcher admin and scroll down and click on SharePoint, or we can usually remember this URL or bookmark this URL and go back to it whenever necessary.
In the SharePoint admin Center, there’s a number of site collections that were created for us, we’re going to use this default site collection pilothouse ABC SharePoint.com, that’s usually your company name or your organization name, I’m going to go to the site collection. It’s a default team site, it’s pilothouse ABCD team site.
I’m going to verify a few settings, we’re going to go to site settings. If you’re familiar with SharePoint, you’ll notice that there is a section missing, the section is called web designer galleries. In order to get the full functionality, we’re going to make a few changes to our within SharePoint admin Center, we’re going to go back to your SharePoint admin center and click on settings.
In settings, it will allow users to run custom script on personal sites, we’ll delete the site collection that was created for us automatically. Once we delete, it will recreate it again. To recreate that site collection, we’re going to click on new private site collection.
For the title, I’m going to use ABC University for the template selection. We can use team site or we can use team site sharepoint online configuration, either one will work for the administrator.
I’m going to put my own name in here. I will allocate 3 gigabytes to the site collection and click OK. I expect to get an error. Once I click OK, we’re going to permanently delete the site collection. When we click OK, you can see that our site collection is being created. It took about over 10 minutes for the site collection to be created again.
That time depends on the time of the day that you’re doing it or whether there is a previously deleted site collection. We can click on our new site collection and we’re going to go to site settings, you’re going to see a little difference. There is the web designer galleries, this is the one that was created by Microsoft by default. There’s no web designer galleries, we’ll need those in a course.
There are other effects when those galleries are not enabled. Another slight difference is that it says home whereas in another place it says ABC University, we already gave the name to the site collection. The last thing that we want to do is to go to internet options within Internet Explorer, we cam go to security trusted sites and make sure that pilothouse ABC airplane.com is within our trusted sites.
