Chapter 3. Working with Documents > Adding Documents to SharePoint

Adding Documents to SharePoint

Before you try some of the SharePoint document management features, you’ll obviously need some content within SharePoint. This section covers a few ways that you can get your files into SharePoint and start taking advantage of all the management features as well as general SharePoint benefits such as regular backup.

Uploading an Existing Document

The most common way to get documents into SharePoint is by using the SharePoint web interface. To add a single document to a document library, first navigate to the document library from within SharePoint. Once you’re at the right document library, click the Documents tab on the ribbon. This tab gives you access to the most common document library operations, including editing operations, content approval tasks, and publishing options. In this case, you’re looking for the Upload Document option (see Figure 3-2).
