  • 3. INTRODUCTIONMicrosoft SharePoint 2010 is a Web-based platform that is used for collaboration among teammembers working on various projects. An important benefit to using SharePoint sites is thecentralization of information. If you use a SharePoint site you have a central location where youcan access, work with, and collaborate on different aspects of a project. You will no longer needto search through your e-mail for an important attachment, access file shares to locate differentdocuments, or guess whether the information you have is the most current.SharePoint 2010 uses the ribbon interface found in Microsoft Office clients such as Word andExcel. Including the ribbon brings continuity to the Office products and also makes it easier andfaster to find the functionality you are looking for. 2
  • 4. Basic Navigation: You can access any SharePoint site by typing the URL into the address bar. Each site will have the same basic navigation buttons and bars.

It should be noted however, that the site action button is displayed depending upon the user’s permission level.  Breadcrumb Trail: This bar shows the path that the user has taken to arrive at a page. It provides links back to each previous page the user navigated through to get to the current page. 4
  • 6.  Ribbon Tabs: With the integration of the Ribbon bar in SharePoint 2010, Ribbon tabs have taken the place of drop down menus.  Quick Launch: Lists links to site libraries, lists, discussions, sites and any new object that is created in SharePoint.

The number and types of controls that appear onthe ribbon vary according to context and depend in part on the type of page you are viewing, thelevel of control that your administrator has granted to users, and your permission level within thesite. Tabs, groups, and commands on the ribbon are contextual. Therefore, the ribbon commandsavailable to you change depending on where you are and what you are doing.

  • 10. Permission Levels and Groups:A SharePoint group is a set of users that can be managed together. A permission level is a set ofpermissions that can be assigned to a specific group for a specific securable object. Adding usersto a SharePoint group is recommended, as this makes managing permissions easier acrossmultiple sites. SharePoint groups and permission levels are defined at the site collection leveland are inherited from the parent object by default. Permissions do not need to be inherited fromthe parent site, you can create unique permissions for your site. The following table lists thedefault SharePoint groups you will see when you create a site using the team site template.Group Default permissionname level Description Visitors Read Use this group to grant people Read permissions to the SharePoint site. Members Contribute Use this group to grant people Contribute permissions to the SharePoint site. Owners Full Control Use this group to grant people Full Control permissions to the SharePoint site.If you use a site template other than the team site template, you will see a different list of defaultSharePoint groups. For example, the following table shows the additional groups provided by apublishing site template.Group Default permissionname level Description Restricted Restricted Read to the Members of this group can view pages and documents, but cannot Readers site, plus Limited view historical versions or review user rights information. Access to specific lists Style Read to the Master Members of this group are given Read permission to the Master Page Resource Page Gallery and Gallery and Restricted Read permission to the Style Library. By Readers Restricted Read to the default, all authenticated users are a member of this group. Style Library. Note: Do not remove all authenticated users from this group. Because Master Page Gallery and Style Library are shared across all sites in the site collection and must be accessible to all users of all sites. If you remove all authenticated users from the group, anyone with this permission level on a subsite will not be able to render the site. SharePoint will not automatically add or remove users of subsites to or from this group as needed. Quick Contribute to the Members of this group can schedule Quick Deploy jobs. Deploy Quick Deploy Items Users library, plus Limited Access to the rest of the site Approvers Approve, plus Limited Members of this group can edit and approve pages, list items, and Access documents. Hierarchy Manage Hierarchy, Members of this group can create sites, lists, list items, and 9
  • 11. Managers plus Limited Access documents. Note: The Limited Access permission level is used to give groups access to a specific list, library, folder, document, or item, without giving them access to the entire site. Do not remove this permission level from the groups listed above. If this permission level is removed, the groups might not be able to navigate through the site to get the specific items with which they need to interact.Make most users members of the Visitors or Members groups. By default, users in the Membersgroup can contribute to the site by adding or removing items or documents, but cannot changethe structure, site settings, or appearance of the site. The Visitors group has read-only access tothe site, which means that they can see pages and items, and open items and documents, butcannot add or remove pages, items, or documents.Site Admins and Site Collection Admins are two DIFFERENT types of individuals. SiteCollection admins have full access to all data in a site collection, despite what a site/list/list itemindicates. Site Owners have full control over the site to which they are given ownership, butonly to that site.Create a Site based on a Template:A team site comes with announcements lists, discussion boards, document libraries, a calendar,a links list, a wiki page library, and a task list already configured and ready for use.
