These sites are managed within your group, allowing for granular levels of access based on your needs.
Please visit What is SharePoint? on Microsoft's website for general information about the program, or contact us at 5-Help (212-305-4357), extension 5 to request more information about having a site made available for your group.
SharePoint 2007 Sites Updated to 2010 in July
If you are not able to reach an existing site after the update, please check the link you are using and make sure it starts with https://sps. rather than https://sp. For example, a site address that had been: https://sp.cumc.columbia.edu/cumc/mydept
will have changed to: https://sps.cumc.columbia.edu/cumc/mydept
All SharePoint site owners were notified prior to the upgrade, if you are still not able to reach your site please contact the person in your department who manages the site or who originally gave you access. Permissions to access group or department sites are managed by the site owner, not CUMC IT, so it is best to contact this person to verify that your permissions have not been changed.
