CTPC member, Richard Frisch, will present “The Basics of Microsoft SharePoint Online” at the next CTPC meeting. SharePoint Online (SPO) is part of Microsoft Office 365 for Business. SPO helps organize information,
people and projects, whether working as an individual or in a team.
Do you remember when you moved from a typewriter to a word processor or from a calculator and a ledger to a spreadsheet program? Wonderful new possibilities arose. SPO removes the limitations imposed by storing files only on our computer’s hard drive. It removes the need to create, edit and view documents solely on our computers. It lets us easily collaborate by storing our files simultaneously in the cloud and on our computers. When you move to SPO you can access your work on whatever device you want—computer, tablet or smartphone—and wherever you are.
Like pornography, SharePoint can be hard to define but when you see it you’ll want it. Come see a live demonstration of SPO at the next CTPC meeting, Tuesday, March 25, 2014. It’s a G-rated program but prepare to be amazed!
Note that meetings are held at the Silver Star diner in Norwalk (directions here). We also invite you to remain after the meeting for some socializing and to have pizza, salad and the beverage of your choice. Cost is shared and is normally less than $14/person. The Silver Star allows us to use their facility at no charge and we think they deserve some benefit for their generosity.
