Team Sites are now available to UB students, faculty, and staff. Built on Microsoft's SharePoint technology, Team Sites is a web-based tool used for collaborating on documents and projects. Document collaboration functionality includes document workflow, document versioning, and document check-out.
Team Sites provides an alternative to using the R and T drives, as well as project sites in Sakai. While all these options will still be available, Sites introduces enhanced collaboration opportunities, including direct access to files through a Web browser.
