How to insert & remove SharePoint document libraries

Use these instructions to insert a document library from your SharePoint sites on a page of your ThoughtFarmer intranet. It takes just a few clicks to insert a document library, which allows you to easily access, edit, and add to documents stored in your company's SharePoint sites.

If your intranet administrator has connected the intranet to SharePoint sites you can embed any document library from those sites on an intranet page. If you don't see the options and buttons listed below, contact your site administrator.
