Hey Jay,

SharePoint is fun, once you understand where everything really is stored.
It gets even more fun if the group has Teams too. Oh boy!

I mean this literally. At first I hated how easy MS makes it to just add
content everywhere. But as I play with it I recognize patterns and can work
more efficiently with it and provide guidance to others.

The organization where I work has an unrealistic retention policy where
they are not allowed to delete any SharePoint content, even if it was meant
to be a boilerplate or test site. I told them it was a stupid policy to
force content retention while the org is still dipping its feet into the
pool. MS does NOT make it easy to move sites files from place to place.

Documents, on the other hand, are far more easier to manage. Then you can
set up document lists on SharePoint pages to direct people to the specific
content you think they want.
