Configuration Guides

SharePoint is a web-based service that works from most major browsers as long as your computer meets the system requirements.

Can I sync SharePoint documents with my desktop?

Yes. You can use OneDrive for Business to connect to your SharePoint team sites and sync documents or document libraries. Once the documents are synced with your desktop or mobile device, you may work with the synced files offline.

NOTE:If you are working with files offline, it is important to always check the online version of the current online file(s) before uploading the offline document(s).

Is there a mobile app for SharePoint?

Microsoft offers OneDrive for Business to view and sync files and Office Mobile to view and edit Office documents. Please refer to the links for more information on each mobile app.

There are also third-party apps available for mobile devices, but IMSS has not vetted these apps. If you have previous experience with one of these third-party tools and would like for IMSS to review this app, please submit a service request at https://help.caltech.edu using the service request IMSS > Office 365 > SharePoint.
