The SharePoint Start Page

The SharePoint Start Page is a central location that shows you relevant content from all the SharePoint sites that you have access to at UW-Parkside. From here, you can easily get to the sites that you are following, frequently visit, or have recently visited. This page also lets you search for content across all the SharePoint sites that you may have access to.

On the start page Left Navigation you'll find links to your items, i.e., files or sites that you created.
