To work along with this course, you will need SharePoint Online or SharePoint 2019 running in a supported browser: Internet Explorer 10 or 11, Edge, or the latest version of Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. You will want to be either the owner or member of the site you are using.
- [Instructor] If you'd like to work along with me in this course and try out some or all of the things that I demonstrate then you'll need a couple of things. First you'll need to have SharePoint. SharePoint Online, or SharePoint that's bundled as part of Office 365, or SharePoint server 2019. Any of these will work but I will be demonstrating the features that are in SharePoint for Office 365 as of the time this course is being recorded. Both SharePoint Online and SharePoint for Office 365 are web-based products so what you see on your screen might be slightly different than what I'm demonstrating because these products are being modified frequently by Microsoft.
You'll also need to have a browser and in my organization users have the ability to choose their own browsers. I would say most of our folks are using Microsoft Edge although a number are using other browsers as well. And because I'll be creating sites that have a lot of images in them I'd like to be able to look at those sites and see how the user experience is for people who aren't using the same browser I am. So I usually load up the three most popular browsers in my organization when I work in SharePoint.
Let me remind you what operating system and browser combinations are recommended for SharePoint. If you're running Windows 10 you can use Edge, Internet Explorer 11, or the latest versions of Firefox or Chrome and I actually have all four of these on my computer so that I can switch between them. I don't have a lot of Internet Explorer users right now but I have some. If on the other hand you're using an earlier version of Windows in your organization. Windows 8, 8.1, or 7 with service pack one, then Edge isn't an option for you but the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome are possibilities.
If you're using Windows Vista, Firefox or Chrome. If you are using a Mac then your choices are Safari and Chrome. I also load up Safari on my Windows machine. So that's an option as well. Although not one of the recommended browser combinations. And if you have users that are running Linux, Firefox or Chrome and again the latest versions of all of these. Make sure you have SharePoint, make sure you have one or more browsers. And again if your organization dictates a particular browser simply load that up and you will be fine working along with me in this course.
