Setting up a Corporate Level folder structure


  • I am in the process of moving over to Office 365 from Google Apps.  I want to get a corporate folder structure setup so that all of our users can access shared files in one spot.

    I was to have one main folder, and then subfolders within that restricted by security group.

    I am going to use the main sharepoint site for the main folder, but I am unsure how to go about creating the sub folders.  Should I just create folders within the documents section and alter the permissions, or is there a way I can create a subsite for each division but have that subsites documents show up in their own folder in the documents area of the main site?

  • You can follow the below model

    Main Folder => SharePoint Site Collection's root site

    Sub Folders => Sub sites for restricted permissions and Document libraries to store the documents

    In the root site, add roll up webparts like content query or content search to show all the documents from the underlying sub sites.
