Drag and drop the file from File Explorer over to SharePoint with your mouse.
2. The Other way:
In the SharePoint folder where you want to upload a document, click “Upload”.
In the box that pops up, click “File” and select the file or files you want to upload and click “open”.
When you open a document with SharePoint Online, you can simply click on the document name and it will open in Office Online. From there, you have the option of editing online (simply start editing) or click “Edit In Word” to open the document in Microsoft Word and edit in the application bit.
1. Collaborating With Others On A Document
SharePoint makes it extremely easy to collaborate on a document with your colleagues. When you open a document, you’ll be able to see the number of people, who are currently working on the same document you are with you, which is in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
When multiple people are making changes to the document simultaneously, you will see the changes being made in real-time, along with the author who is also making the changes If you would like to invite someone to edit the document, you just need to click the “share” button and you will be able to easily share the document with others.
2. Searching For A Document
Just as you might search for an email in Outlook, or for a file on your computer, the search function in SharePoint Online is easy-to-use and makes searching for your documents effortless.
You can search for something in SharePoint using two different methods: using the “Search this site” search box in the upper right-hand corner of your SharePoint site, or using the “Find s file” search box above your list of folders/documents.
“Search this site”: This option searches your entire SharePoint site for the keywords you’ve typed, and it pulls the search results from file names, metadata, and the text inside Office and readable PDF files.
“Find a file”: This option searches for the keywords you’ve typed in file names, metadata, and the text inside Office and readable PDF files, but since the box falls under a specific document library, it’s only going to search that document library for the results.
Copying And Moving Files And Folders
Depending on the version of SharePoint you have, there are a number of different ways that you can move or copy files.
1. Copying Files
Select the items that you want to copy and click “copy to”
Under “Choose a destination”, you can select the folder that you want to copy the information into. Don’t see the destination you want? Click “Browse sites” to see the full list of sites that you’re able to copy to.
Click “copy here” to complete the copy.
2. Moving Files
To move files requires you to follow the same steps as above, only instead of clicking “copy to”, you’re going to click “move to”.
