SharePoint is Microsoft’s web-based collaboration and document management platform offered as part of the Microsoft Office family of products.   A SharePoint site is a web site that provides a central storage and collaboration space for documents, information, and ideas.  A SharePoint site is a tool for collaboration; helping groups of people share information and work together in a dynamic and interactive fashion.

SharePoint gives people the ability to:

  • Publish documents of standard file formats
  • Manage documents with version control and workflow
  • Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules
  • Control individual access to web sites using JHED credentials
  • Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals
  • Integrate with Office desktop applications, instant messaging, and email.

This SharePoint service is being offered by the Enterprise Web Services Team which is part of IT @ Johns Hopkins.  For more information about our SharePoint offering, please see
