Cornell SharePoint Online enables web-based collaboration for groups of all sizes and serves a wide range of uses for workgroups, crossdepartmental teams, courses, projects, workflows, information gathering and sharing, and more. SharePoint Online sites can use a very wide variety of web parts, such as calendars, tasks lists, small databases, and wikis. Cornell SharePoint Online sites require a site administrator and a degree of setup that varies, depending on the complexity of the site and how much functionality is to be added to the basic features the site comes with.

If the primary work of a team is sharing and commenting on files, Box can be a useful tool. Box features include comments, task assignments, and approval workflow. Another useful team feature is Box Notes. With Box Notes, you can quickly take notes, share ideas and collaborate in real-time with your team without leaving Box. The notes are web-based documents and do not require any other software in order to create, view or edit. See the Box support site for more information about Box Notes.
