The version of SharePoint on my company issued laptop is "SharePoint Workspace". Under File/New it does not give me the option to create a home page/site; only "SharePoint Workspace", "Groove Workspace", "Shared Folder", "Workspace from Template" and "Workspace from Archive".

Is there a way to create a home page using this version of SharePoint or can this only be done using the version called "SharePoint Control Administration"? Thank you.

SharePoint Workspace allows you to connect to an existing SharePoint site to view and collaborate on documents (it does quite a bit more, but that's the main gist of it).

To get your own site, you need to speak to your SharePoint administrator or IT administrator. Then you should be able to connect your SharePoint Workspace to your personal site.

I spoke to them and they granted me access to the home site. Thank you! – Shawn Nov 30 '12 at 0:34
