About This Class

This course dives into the ins and outs of site management in SharePoint Online. First, learn about site creation options and best practices, and then delve into common site manager topics. 

When managing a site, one of the most common tasks, is permission management.   We teach how to get started with sharing your sites, and get into some advanced permission concepts, to get more granular.  The course will also cover access requests and external sharing settings, hub sites, as well as their settings and modern global navigation.

In addition, the instructor will go through some of the following administrative tasks: modern navigation settings, Web Analytics & reporting, regional settings, site governance, and modern search.
