Request a Department Team Site
Department Team Sites are replacing the shared file drives (DFS) currently used for file storage within a department as the new long-term shared file storage solution.
"IT-supported" means that:
Information Technology has an automated process for creating
Department Teams Sites. No set up work on your part.
Information Technology will assist departments in migrating the contents of their shared drives to the Department Teams Site.
Department Teams Sites are created for long-term document storage by departments and their members. Other Team sites will be subject to a 1-year inactivity expiration policy.
Department Teams Sites are preconfigured with a
private "Admin" channel for storing documents requiring restricted access. This private channel is available only to department administrative staff.
Department Teams Site membership is based on employee appointments within the department and is automatically maintained.
Have you already created a Teams site for your department? IT can update your existing team site to a
Department Teams Site!
But Teams is so much more!
Teams is so much more than a place to share department files. Department members also have access to all of Teams rich feature set.
chat to keep department conversations organized and out of your email.
Add Wikis, Microsoft Forms, and other tools to your channels.
video/audio calls to have quick conversations with co-workers - just as easy as walking down the hall to their office on campus.
Department file storage in Teams is accessible through web browsers - much easier than DFS access.
And Teams is a GREAT collaboration tool!
