Document Libraries

Much of the information in most organizations is stored in file shares and users’ “My Documents” folders on their local computer. Document Libraries in SharePoint build on the file share paradigm that most users are familiar with but add several significant improvements. In this module, students will learn the role that Document Libraries play in a SharePoint site by adding documents to a library, categorizing documents with folders and metadata, and creating custom views.

 

Questions that will be answered in this module include:

  • How do I upload single and multiple documents to SharePoint?
  • How do I drag and drop documents into SharePoint?
  • What is a Library? How do I create one?
  • What is metadata and why is it different (and better) than folders?
  • How do I create a column on a Library?
  • How do I validate the information in a column?

How do I create views of a library?
