I'm just get start with SP2013 for a week, and my boss give me a task. My company have 3 SP sites :

my.mycompany.net : (personal site of members in company).....

team.mycompany.net: (team site for each team in our company)....

learn.mycompany.net: (site contain document, videos for employee learning)....

My tasks is: Design 'Master View' to access all these sites through one entry point.

In my opinion, I'll create a site collection, and inside it, I'll create 3 subsite (my,team,learn) and my task done. But, the problem is, I don't know which template should I use. AM I RIGHT? If not, Where should I get start?


There are different ways to accomplish what you want.

One of them : You first need to create a web application with domain orientsoftware.net Here you have a tutorial how to do it.

Later on you need to create three new site collections. One for my , one for team and one for learn. I suggest that for my you use My site host template for my.yourcompany.com, Team Site template for team.yourcompany.com and enterprise wiki for learn.yourcompany.com.

Bear in mind that the domains for the site collections will be of the form orientsoftware.net/sites/my

If you want to have them at the form team.yourcompany.net you have to create three web applications with wanted domain and for each of them create the corresponding site collection.

  • I've create a web application and 3 site collection like you said. So now, How can I create Master View? Should I directly design my own Master Page in mycompany.net? – user3622351 Sep 4 '14 at 3:55
  • Now I have a web application at : mycompany.net , a site collection at mycompany.net, and three site collections mycompany.net/my mycompany.net/team mycompany.net/learn . What should I do next? – user3622351 Sep 10 '14 at 9:27
  • when you created the site collections did you pick the type that I recommended you ? – el94 Sep 10 '14 at 17:28

You can use Blank Site template and on the landing page, put the links to the 3 subsites.
