How Many Teams, Sites, Libraries, and Folders?


When working in SharePoint and Office 365, the number of teams, sites, libraries, and folders you’ll need to create can be confusion. Libraries can become exercises in endless scrolling, and people might complain about their “stuff” being scattered across a dozen sites. When I’m asked how many of these containers someone should create, the answer is sometimes complicated.

We’ve created a new white paper, “How Many Teams, Sites, Libraries, and Folders?“, to help answer this question. We start by discussing the hierarchy itself and how each container is used. Then we delve into some brain science: how we as humans organize our stuff and what factors make it easier for people to find their stuff. We end with a conversation on more specific guidelines on how many of these containers you should have based on your needs.
