Team Sites

Team sites provide departments, groups, or organizations in the Loyola community with an online area for internal collaboration. Each team site is only accessible by people who have been granted access, allowing for a more secure environment to share information and files that should not be readily available to the public. From meeting notes to vacation calendars, task management to department discussions, each group can utilize this feature as it makes most sense for them.
