  • Setting up an Office 365 trial with SharePoint Online

    Here I will sign up for a free 30 day trial of Microsoft Office 365.
    (Note: This site trial may expire soon but that's to be expected)

    I clicked on Free Trial

    Then I clicked close on the chat screen. They are very responsive though if I wanted to chat I would have started a chat. I chose Professionals and small businesses and clicked FREE TRIAL.

    After a while the SharePoint Online setup completes and I see the Team Site section come up . I'll click on Visit team site.

    This takes me to the team site which is a subsite of the top level site. The top level site is a publishing site, I can tell this by looking at the url.

    This site has 3 libraries out of the box: Documents, Site Assets and Site Pages, and 1 List – Posts.

    As a comparison I created an on premise team site where I get a little more: 3 Libraries, 4 Lists, 1 Discussion board.

    The ribbon changes, becoming contextual to interacting with the list items which in this case are pages. I'll click the New Page button to add a page.

    This launches a modal window in which I can select from some standard templates. I select Product or Service and click next.
