Create a team site in 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 SharePoint team site of your own, follow these steps:

  • Login to with your Duck ID and password (if prompted, choose Work/School account).
  • Select on the SharePoint App on the UO Office site.
  • On the left side of the page at the top of the list, select +Create Site.
  • Select Team Site.
  • Select Standard team or select a template (you can change this choice later).
  • Select Use template in the lower right.
  • Enter a name and description for your site, and make note of the Site Address that is generated for you. Then, select Next.
  • Select your privacy settings â€“ Information Services recommends setting the privacy settings to Private. (Anyone with a Duck ID can access a public site.)
  • Select Create Site.
  • Add at least one more site owner to manage the site in your absence or in collaboration with you.
  • Select Finish.

Site setup can take 10-20 minutes.
