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.
The section to the right of the left navigation consists of the following items: Following, Recent, & Featured Links
How to follow or unfollow a site
To follow or unfollow a site from the SharePoint start page, navigate to the upper right corner of the selected SharePoint site tile and click on the Star icon.
- The hollow star icon indicates an unfollowed site, click to follow the site.
- The solid star icon indicates a followed site, click to unfollow the site.
Note: Whenever a user creates a site in SharePoint, they will automatically follow the site by default. You can also follow or unfollow a site by visiting it directly.
