    Create your site

    When you create a new site, you'll need to provide the following details (other information is optional, but these are required):

    Access level

    You control who can view your site. Remember, if you make your site public, anyone in the world will be able to view your site. Choose with care! 

    * Domain administrators control whether it's possible to make sites available to the public. Check with your domain administrator if you're not able to view this sharing option. 


    Themes determine the overall look of your site - from standard solids to whimsical backgrounds, you can be your own site designer with one click of the mouse! If you're not entirely happy with the colors or fonts in a certain theme, don't worry, you'll be able to customize colors and fonts after your site is created.

    That's it! Click Create site to finish the setup process.

    Your new site will automatically appear.

    Edit pages in your site

    To edit a page, click the Edit Page button in the upper right corner of the page.

    To start adding apps and gadgets to your site, select Insert, and pick the appropriate item you'd like to include. 

    Some useful apps and gadgets include:

    • Calendar: Make sure your project stays on schedule and embed a calendar that includes key due dates.

    Add pages to your site

    Add pages to better organize information in your site. The following formatting options are available, depending on the purpose of your page: 

    • Web Page: An unstructured page where you can add text, images, tables, and embed spreadsheets, presentation, videos and more. 
    • Dashboard: A web page that displays an overview of information. The two-column page is pre-formatted with four gadget placeholders - click on each gadget to select the information you'd like to embed (e.g. calendar, document, presentation, etc.)
    • Announcements: An easy way to post chronological information (e.g. project updates, company announcements, etc.)

    • File Cabinet: Allows you to organize common documents in one place. Upload files from your hard drive and create a complete library of information. 
    • List: Choose from list templates, or configure your own custom columns to easily track items. 
    • Start Page: A web page with a special section that is restricted to each individual collaborator. Collaborators can still add content that everyone will see, but can add their own personalized set of gadgets that only they can view. 

    Share your site

    Now that you've created your site, share and collaborate with others! Click More actions in the top right of any page and select Share this site.

    As the site owner, you can control who can edit and view your site by adding others as owners, collaborators, or viewers.

    • Viewers can only view the content on your site (they won't be able to make changes or invite others to view your site). Remember, if you make your site available to your entire domain, you do not need to send invitations for specific people to view it.
    • Collaborators can create, edit, organize and delete pages. 
    • Owners can do everything a collaborator can do, PLUS edit themes/layout, delete the site, and invite other owners, collaborators or viewers.
