SharePoint is a tool for collaboration that helps groups of people (whether work teams or social groups) share information and work together. For example, SharePoint can help you:

  • Coordinate projects, calendars, and schedules.
  • Discuss ideas and review documents or proposals.
  • Share information and keep in touch with other people.

SharePoint SFTP limit is 100MB.

The University of Illinois is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of confidential data. At this time no HIPPA, FERPA, or PCI data should be stored in SharePoint. The SharePoint Advisory Board is investigating best practices for storage of this type of data moving forward.



Two levels of service will be created:

  • Tier 1 will offer the most services and will be free. It will consist of the features most users are familiar with such as collaboration, document storage, and integration with other Office applications.
  • Tier 2 will offer more complex services such as connectivity to external databases, business intelligence capabilities, and SharePoint Designer. There will be a fee associated with Tier 2 that has yet to be determined.
