Creating a Teamsite
A teamsite 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. These
components of the site allow you and your team to quickly set up and begin collaborating on
your projects.
Create a Site based on a Template
1. Click on the Site Actions menu and select New Site.
2. Click on any site icon and notice that on the right side of the window the creation
attributes are dynamically displayed for each item.
3. Click on Team Site to select it then click on More Options.
4. Enter a title and description for the site.
5. Enter a URL for the site. NOTE: When entering the URL you only need to specify what
the site name (last portion of the URL) will be. SharePoint will automatically generate
the first portion of the URL. Keep the URL short do not use spaces, use hyphens instead.
6. If you do not want the site to inherit permissions from the parent site click Use unique
permissions.
7. Select whether or not you would like the site to appear on the Quick Launch of the parent
site.
8. The new site can inherit the top link bar from the parent or have it’s own.
9. Click Create.

Permissions
By selecting Use unique permissions, the Set Up Groups for this Site window will appear. Use
this page to specify who can access your site. You can create new SharePoint groups or re-use
existing SharePoint groups. Note: Best Practice for granting permission to users is to add them
to a SharePoint group, not to give the user access directly to a site. It is much easier to maintain
groups across multiple sites than to maintain individual users across multiple sites.
1. Visitors to this Site: create a group of visitors or re-use an existing SharePoint group. To
use an existing group click on the down arrow and select from the list. To see a complete
list of groups click on More…
2
2. Members of this Site: a new group is automatically created for this group. You can add
members to this group by typing in the user’s name or clicking on the address book icon
. Separate each user’s name with a semicolon.
3. Owners of this Site: a new group is automatically created for this group. You can add
members to this group by typing in the user’s name or clicking on the address book icon.
Separate each user’s name with a semicolon. Permissions are cumulative, therefore if
you add someone to the Owners group there is no need to add them to the other groups.
4. Click Ok when all of the changes have been made.
To check or make changes to group or individual permissions click on Site Actions and select
Site Permissions. From this page you can grant permissions, create new groups, edit or remove
