Create a team site in OneDrive / SharePoint online


A SharePoint team site connects you and your team to the content, information, and apps you rely on every day. For example, you can use a team site to store and collaborate on files or to create and manage lists of information.

On a team site home page, you can view links to important team files, apps, and web pages and see recent site activity in the activity feed.


To set up a team site of your own, follow these steps:

  • Login to with your Duck ID and password (if prompted choose Work/School account)
  • Click on the OneDrive App on the UO Office site
  • On the left side of the page at the bottom of the list is a + sign, click on that + sign
  • Select Team Site
  • Enter a name and description for your site, make note of the Site Address that is generated for you
  • Select your privacy settings - we recommend setting it to Private. Public means anyone with a Duck ID can access it
  • Add an additional owner (if needed). This person could manage the site in your absence, or in collaboration with you
  • Add members. Anyone with a Duck ID can be added
  • Click Finish button
  • Site setup can take 10-20 minutes.
