How to Create SharePoint Intranet for Small Business

Let’s go through the steps involved in the process –

Go to Site Settings


Step 2:

Click “Title, Description and Logo”

You will get three links to the pages. Click on the link “Progress” to get a dialog box asking your final permission to create the page. Click “Create” then enter the page name “Progress” and click “Save” to add the page.

Similarly, add the other two pages “Problems” and “Plans”.


That’s how you can create subsite for one department. Similarly, create other subsites for other departments and their corresponding apps and pages. This would complete the process of creating the SharePoint Intranet for different departments of a small business.
