Resources for Staff

A collection of resources to support staff with personal document management and online collaboration at the University.

The SharePoint Solutions Service team have developed a series of guides covering an assortment of the Office 365 applications available to you free of charge for the duration of your employment at the University of Edinburgh.

We have uploaded the below materials to the SharePoint Solutions Service site. Please login to the SharePoint site using your University Login details.

For staff, resources have been developed covering both basics as well as managing file sharing and permissions for various Microsoft 365 applications, including:

  • SharePoint 
  • OneDrive 
  • Microsoft Lists 
  • Microsoft 365 Groups

Each guide features guidance and examples of suggested usage, with topics covered including: 

  • Adding members to your SharePoint site 
  • Sharing files and folders in SharePoint and OneDrive (as well as how to stop sharing content, or change permissions) 
  • Reporting on file and folder sharing in SharePoint and OneDrive 
  • Creating rules in Microsoft Lists 

Guidance for other Microsoft 365 applications will continue to be added to the Staff Resources page in due course.
