    Items - such as documents, apps, and site pages - that you no longer need on SharePoint 2013 can be removed and sent to the Recycle Bin. This is where anything that has been deleted is stored before it is permanently removed. If something has been accidently deleted, you can very quickly restore the item to its original location from this area. You can also use the Recycle Bin to permanently delete files and remove them from your SharePoint platform. FREE ACCESS

    If you are working on a particular project that requires you to mobilize a lot of resources or if you have an entire department to manage, you may find it useful to create a subsite.

    If you want to protect your team site's data, pages and apps, it is important to know how to manage your SharePoint 2013 protection settings. You can, for example, use the check out function to block any other modifications on a page while you are editing it. You can also activate a control feature to give you refusal or approval rights on anything that is added to your team site, and you can even use a library's version history to keep track of the different changes made to a document or page.
