- [Narrator] In this course, I'll be showing you how SharePoint works and how to use it. If you would like to work along with me, try some of the things out, then I'll tell you what it is you will need. First you will need to have SharePoint; a current version of SharePoint. There are two primary versions of SharePoint: SharePoint Server, which is installed on servers in your organization, also called SharePoint On-Premises, and SharePoint Online, of which there are different flavors, but normally it's part of Office 365, so it's called SharePoint for Office 365.
This course focuses on these versions of SharePoint, SharePoint Online. All of the SharePoint products run in a browser, so it behooves us to take a look at what browsers work with which operating systems, and which really aren't supported. A general rule: Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 are your best bet in a Windows environment. If you're running an earlier version of Internet Explorer, it's not supported for SharePoint with current operation systems.
So if you're using Windows 10, you can use Edge or Internet Explorer 11, Firefox, or Chrome. If you are using older versions of Windows, for example Windows 8, 8.1, or 7 with Service Pack 1, you can use Internet Explorer 11, Firefox or Chrome. If you're using Windows Vista, only with Service Pack 2 installed, Firefox and Chrome will work. This is the list of supported browsers for Windows.
If you're using macOSX, 10.8 or later, use Safari or Chrome to run SharePoint. When we're talking about Safari, Chrome and FireFox, we're talking about the latest version of those browsers. Older versions of Safari, Chrome and Firefox aren't going to be well supported or may not be supported at all. And finally, in a Linux environment, Firefox or Chrome. We can also use SharePoint on a mobile device, for example, an Android tablet or an iPad and iPhone.
And there are mobile browsers, but normally we will use a SharePoint app rather than running SharePoint in a browser. So if you're running iOS 10 or later, on an iPhone or an iPad, then use the apps for iOS. However, if you need to use a browser to use SharePoint, use Safari. If you're using a Droid, use the apps. And there are no supported browsers for SharePoint on a Droid. If you would like to work along with me, and you don't yet have SharePoint Online, consider a short term subscription or even a free trial, to take SharePoint Online and Office 365 out for a spin, and see what you think of SharePoint.
