Hi. Shoddy laser subject matter expert for office 3 65 Web content management course
00:11
and this module We're going to go into the ribbon introduction to the ribbon for sites. So what we're going to do first is navigate to the top left of our page and look at the page tab.
00:27
And here we have the site ribbon. Now that ribbon is designed to
00:33
organized commonly used task into what you call task moves. So at the bottom of
00:40
each section, you have edit, manage, scrolling all the way down to the far right to tags and notes. Now, in previous versions of Microsoft Office, where the Reagan was first introduced Office 2007 to be exact in certain applications such a word and a power point,
01:00
the ribbon or the interface used to be a drop down. So if you select file, the drop down would appear similar to this endings.
01:11
Where you have the different task that you can complete.
01:15
The challenge with the uh, drop down file menu is that you can't necessarily find all the key features and functionality to leverage to full capabilities. So
01:30
the change was made to include the task in, uh,
01:36
with an icon graphical interface
01:40
and lay everything from far left to far right to make it easier to locate and identify, thus making you the information worker, a constant manager, more productive.
01:53
So let's look at some of the key
01:56
features within each task on the ribbon, and then you can go for it
02:01
and practice and get more familiar enough to speed on the ribbon features. First of all, you have edit the page,
02:09
uh, in this wolf course opened the page, and you have us different options here where you can save and keep editing.
02:17
Um, this is if you have ongoing working, just what it may
02:22
changes as you go.
02:24
So let's just open the page and edit mode so you could see the behind scenes.
02:30
So now, once you add it to Paige, you're presented with a different route
02:35
where you have format text, what we're currently in now,
02:40
and this gives you the edit, the clipboard, which gives you word like, ah, functionality with editing the sights you can copy in peace,
02:51
uh,
02:52
text from, let's say, e mail or from word document into your sights of your pager. Your sight a constant area.
03:01
You have the fun which is similar to a market soft word. You also have paragraph and styles. You also have text layout. So if you wanted to make changes to this layout and make it to problems or one column with sidebar so on so forth you have the capability to do this.
03:20
Prior thio
03:22
This feature being included in office 3 65 You would have to basically hire a, uh,
03:30
web designer in order to create this functionality, but now it is built it.
03:36
You also have the ability to
03:38
edit thea markup,
03:40
which means you can edit the source. So if you're more comfortable in terms of ah html and maybe JavaScript
03:49
two
03:51
at various elements within the paint in this manner, you have the option to do that. It also gives you an additional way to, uh, provide a content back up to your site in that you can just copy the source code and,
04:08
uh, keep
04:09
Thio, edit off line and make changes that test in the ah html editor outside of the site itself.
04:16
So this is the markup section layouts, *** styles. You can make changes toe highlighted text
04:25
using the style category or the style task
04:30
paragraph is mostly used for text editing.
04:35
So that's the format text tab on the site ribbon
04:40
you have insert. So insert allows you to
04:45
basically
04:46
plug in various, uh,
04:49
APS or content within this particular pace. We're going back to
04:57
the insert section.
05:02
If I wanted to, for example, at a table underneath the documents at
05:11
I can draw table, which I'm going to demonstrate.
05:16
And, as you can see below the table shows up.
05:20
So
05:26
that's as some sample text here.
05:32
So I'm going to create a row
05:38
with various departments just to show the capabilities that you can utilize within office 3 65 and Sheriff Point Line.
05:49
So human resource is accounting,
05:53
and
05:54
I see,
05:56
so
05:58
I'm going to provide a
06:05
point of contact for each key area.
06:09
And so that's complete.
06:15
Have the ability to make modifications in terms of font color
06:20
and various other areas there. As you notice, the ribbon itself is contextual, so we're within
06:29
the ribbon itself, so you you're given the table layout and design tags at top if you notice
06:38
so this allows you to assert additional tables
06:41
or delete
06:44
or changed the width and height
06:46
and properties, so you can add a description for this table for management purposes, for other content managers who need to
06:55
see what work you've completed.
06:58
So that's going to the design.
07:00
Ah, Section
07:06
and Table Styles Task Group
07:10
allows me to
07:14
give a different look to the table with make. It appeared to not necessarily be a table, but add some additional design elements aspects to it.
07:26
So if I save my page,
07:31
as you can see,
07:33
you have your table. When this was all, you did not have to hire a designer or developer using the native capabilities a SharePoint online
07:44
you're able to do so. So going back to
07:47
the page tab on the ribbon
07:51
and going back to edit age
07:58
and selecting insert,
08:07
you have the ability.
08:09
Two,
08:11
as I mentioned, insert various elements
08:18
such a CZ links, and you can choose from SharePoint or family star. No dress
08:24
within the parts. You can add
08:26
a map
08:30
here.
08:33
So if I wanted to add my sight pages
08:35
yeah,
08:37
onto the site,
08:41
I can add this information
08:46
or
08:48
I can delete the
08:50
site pages. If if I need to make a quick revision
08:54
for that.
08:58
Deleting the app from the page doesn't necessarily
09:01
remove it from the site entirely, just from
09:05
the
09:07
constant areas on this page.
09:16
So as you can see the ribbon itself if you
09:20
various tasks groups that enable you to quickly, easily and effectively get up to speed on the many capabilities within SharePoint online
09:31
and it's important to get familiar with the various task groups that are here so that you can
09:41
style and add content
09:45
based on your particular requirements of your department,
09:52
I'm sure the laser subject matter. Expert for Office 3 65 Web Content Management Course You have any questions
