SharePoint Research Proposal Collaboration Sites

If a team of investigators will submit a proposal and need to share files, manage calendars and meetings, send postings about specific topics, etc., there will be a single electronic storage location made available to all members of the proposal team and their administrative staff.  All members of the team will be able to see who has the most recent version of a document, track changes made, add or remove files with ease, from anywhere in the world, opening more possibilities for more geographically diverse collaborations.

The Office of the Vice President for Research works with the Division of Information Technology to make available a website for team proposals and collaboration.  Each multidisciplinary proposal will be given a virtual home.  Access to the project will be made available upon request.

Logging On To SharePoint

To log in to a SharePoint site use the following:

Username: SUNYSB.EDU\NetID
Password: NetID Password

Where "NetID" is your NetID and "NetID Password" is your NetID Password. You can find your NetID in SOLAR and set your NetID password in SOLAR using the NetID Maintenance link. The NetID is currently also used to logon to Blackboard and Libraries.

When logging in to a SharePoint site, make sure you are using a backslash ( \ ) between SUNYSB.EDU and your NetID. The backslash button is located above the Enter or Return key on your keyboard.

Quicktip: If you are logging in to Windows using the SUNYSB.EDU domain, you can avoid retyping your username and password multiple times by adding the Stony Brook SharePoint domains to your Local Intranet Zone Sites.
