SharePoint 2007 has now been upgraded to SharePoint 2010.
The upgrade provides users with a user friendly interface that is more efficient to use. New and improved features include the ribbon interface which provides easy access to commands, social networking features and the ability to work across different browsers (including Explorer 7 and 8, Firefox 3 and Safari 3).
The following information is only applicable to those who are My Site owners.
My Site link and Newsfeed Area
The first page you will see is called the 'Stay Connected' area. From this page you can track collegues and news feeds from parts of SharePoint you have access to.
The menu along the top of the screen allow you to navigate to parts of your personal site.
Accessing Your Content
The 'My Content' link will take you to your My Site page.
As part of the upgrade process to SharePoint 2010 your MySite will have been upgraded to the new Look and Feel as shown below, whilst preserving all of your documents and web part customisations.
The “My Links” option displays your previously saved list of sites, as shown below. Click on the Title to navigate to your saved site.
Click here for more information on Using My Site.
There is a move away from using My Links; to using a new feature called Tagging and Notes. More information on tagging and notes can be found on the Microsoft site.
If, having read the information provided on this page and the 'more information' pages, you still require help, then please contact the ISS Service Desk.
Training will be available to other members of staff wishing to access SharePoint in the future.
