How to Create a Newsletter in Sharepoint


Creating a wiki-like newsletter using SharePoint is an easy way to exchange information with coworkers or family members in a collaborative, shared environment. Using SharePoint, rather than a blog or a Word document, lets each contributor add to the newsletter, sharing insights or upcoming events in a living document. You can also print out SharePoint newsletters to share them with others offline.

  • Launch SharePoint and choose "Create" from the "Site Actions" drop-down menu.

  • Select "Sites and Workspaces" from the "Web Pages" menu.

  • Give the newsletter a title and description. You may also designate a URL at this time.

  • Scroll down to choose a template. Select "Document Workspace" and click "Create."

  • Within the "Modify Settings and Columns" drop-down menu, select "Create Columns" to choose a format for your newsletter.

  • Write or solicit content for the newsletter. You can also copy and paste content from your company's or group's wiki.

  • SharePoint automatically signals users to changes within the newsletter at a default monthly interval. You can change the alert to be more or less frequent within the "Options" tab.

  • Print the newsletter from the "File" menu to post it on a communal bulletin board or in another public place for viewing.

Tips & Warnings

  • Upload supplementary information to SharePoint via the "All Documents > Upload Document" tab.
