SharePoint Online

Before requesting a full SharePoint Online site collection, first see whether or not your needs can be met by Groups & Teams.

Each Office 365 Group and Team is fully backed by its own SharePoint Online site collection with many of the same features. You only need to request a SharePoint Online site collection when you require strong top-down organization of your information into a pyramidic site and subsite structure or plan to heavily customize or use advanced features. Basic document sharing and collaboration are easily done in the context of a Group or Team.

Consider requesting a Sharepoint Online site collection if you plan to leverage:

  • Content management
  • Customization of HTML/CSS to change look and feel
  • Strong use of permissions and inheritance in multi-site layout
  • A site template other than the default (Publishing site, Communication Site)
