Security: SharePoint provides support to both individual users and a group of users. Individuals and groups may or not be given access to some parts and sections of the site whereas selected users may have jurisdiction over whether to remove, add or adjust the site.
Versioning: the history of objects and data is automatically upheld and maintained in the program. Alterations can be made and taken back to an earlier point or state without considering time factor.
Recycle bin: the site has a recycle bin which stores deleted data. The data in the recycle bin can be retrieved at any time; furthermore, the undo feature is supported in this system.
Alerts: interconnected groups and users can receive alerts and notifications whenever a certain document has been added removed or adjusted. When users have been approved with certain authorisations they can have control over their own notifications.
Team Sites: are locations that you and your teams can work on together and share information from anywhere and on any device. This is where you can store and collaborate on files in real time. The ability for multiple people to work on the same document at the same time (and see the changes as they are made). You can also create and manage lists of information and link them to relevant content. Check-in / Check-out for change management still exists as a way for an individual to check a file out so that it can’t be worked on by anyone else.
Sharepoint: integrates tightly with other office365 applications and gives organisations the ability to create plans with Microsoft Planner. Planner is a project management solution which integrates in to Sharepoint, which integrates in to Microsoft Teams, which integrates with Microsoft Stream etc etc.
OneDrive for Business: is great for synchronising all of your personal files across all of your devices. It’s great for centralising “Documents” and “Desktop” so that these roam with you between devices. You can share data with colleagues from OneDrive too.
