Upload a Document in SharePoint

Information that is important to an organization, a business unit, or a project team is often stored on an individual’s computer. To facilitate the easy sharing of information, you can make files available to other SharePoint site users.

  1. Log into your SharePoint site, e.g., yourdomain.sharesrvr.com.
  2. Navigate to a page with a Shared Documents section.
  3. On the Quick Launch bar, click the Shared Documents link.
  4. Click the Upload drop-down menu, and select Upload Document.
    Upload document tab highlighted.
  5. In the Upload Document section, click the Browse button.
  6. In the Choose File dialog box, browse to the document you want to upload, and then click the Open button.
    Note: If a document with the same name already exists in the document library, selecting the Overwrite existing file(s) check box automatically overwrites the existing version with your local version.
  7. On the Upload Document page, click the OK button. The selected document is added to the document library.
