  4. Site Collection Overview • What is a Site Collection? • A site collection is used to provide a grouping of 'SharePoint Sites'. Each web application will typically have at least one site collection. Site collections may be associated with their own content databases, or they may share a content database with other site collections in the same web application • How do I Create a Site Collection in Office 365? • When should I create a Site Collection? • A good rule is each Business Functional unit should have its own Site Collection? • Site Collection Administrators • Full Control over all Sites in Site Collection

  5. Users and Permissions • Permission Levels • Full Control – Full Control means you have access to do anything within the site • Design - Can view, add, update, delete, approve, and customize • Edit - Can add, edit and delete lists; can view, add, update and delete list items and documents. • Contribute- Can view, add, update, and delete list items and documents • Read - Can view pages and list items and download documents • Limited Access - Can view specific lists, document libraries, list items, folders, or documents when given permissions

  8. Search Settings • Configure Search Settings • Enter a Search Center URL - When you've specified a search center, the search system displays a message to all users offering them the ability to try their search again from that Search Center. • Query Results - Which search results page should queries be sent to? Custom results page URLs can be relative or absolute. URLs can also include special tokens, such as {SearchCenterURL}. This token will be replaced by the value in the "Search Center URL" property. If the value in this property ever changes, any URL using the token will update automatically. • Example: {SearchCenterURL}/results.aspx

  9. Search Settings – Result Sources • Result Sources – • Use result sources to scope search results and federate queries to external sources, such as internet search engines. After defining a result source, configure search web parts and query rule actions to use it. Learn more about result sources. • Result Sources replace Search Scopes, which are now deprecated. You can still view your old scopes and use them in queries, but not edit them.
