  1. Train Users to Become More Effective:

Imagine a scenario where you don’t understand a task, then, there’s no way you can perform it right. Similarly, if your users lack the proper understanding of the SharePoint platform provided, including its features, its uses, and its application. It becomes difficult to make the best use of it. Therefore, endeavor to train your SharePoint users to become proficient in its usage.

  1. Be Prepared to Endure:

To enable your users to learn faster and easier, you need to exercise enough patience; so take things one step at a time, and do not be too fast with knowledge transfer. It will take a while for them to fully understand, especially when they are new to the SharePoint platform. There are a sayings “a patient dog eats the fattest meat” Therefore, be patient to achieve an excellent result.

  1. Build Excellent Information Architecture:

To build an excellent information architecture, you need to limit the number of options you present to your users; to avoid leaving them in a state of confusion. Ensure that the information is architecturally logical. Why? Firstly, SharePoint users will be able to store, collect, or locate things easily without any enquiring, and secondly, there will be a positive growth and exceptional excitement in the user’s experience.
