Our teams' SharePoint sites have been migrated from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online and we have received no documentation (and very little training) about how to perform common tasks in this version:

 

  • Checking files in and out
  • Editing pages
  • Understanding permissions

The videos we've received for "training" have not been helpful, so we've resorted to creating job aids to help our end users.

 

Is there anything out there that is free that we can re-purpose, or even better, use as is? Also, is there a differences document available? Something that explains how a task was performed in 2013 vs. in SharePoint Online?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It might be worth considering going back to those responsible for the migration in the first place and seeking clarification, ideally giving them an opportunity to remediate the situation, if appropriate and achievable.

 

Here is a good start for documentation, some of which you may have come across already:

 

Documents and libraries in SharePoint

 

Customize permissions for a SharePoint list or library

 

SharePoint help center

 

SharePoint Online video training

 

OneDrive video training

 

Collaborate on files

 

Great ways to work with Office

 

Office 365 Training Center

 

SharePoint Online admin

 

SharePoint sites

 

Build your modern intranet on SharePoint in Office 365

 

 

Good luck!

Hi, ever seen the ebooks on bookboon.com? Some of them are in English and other language. I wrote one about SharePoint online in off365 just for common users in german. Hope that helps, Greets, Eva

I did contact our migration leads, but sadly they weren't able to assist, so this information is very helpful. Thanks so much!

I wasn't aware of bookboon.com. Just checked, and unfortunately doesn't look like there's a book on SharePoint Online. Thanks though!
