Organizations use SharePoint to create websites. In Microsoft 365, you can create a site from the SharePoint start page.

If you're in SharePoint Server, you can create a team or a number of other types of sites. “Get Used to It”—How To Use It Correctly The construction of the example above involves the verb to be + used to in order to show that the speaker is in a state of being accustomed to something. A closely related construction is get + used to, which is an idiomatic phrase meaning “become accustomed to.”.
When the statement is positive, as in the reader’s example, the expression is used to.
In negative statements, the expression is use to. For example, “He didn’t use to go to the game on Friday.”
The expressions are used to speak about things that were habitually done in the past. Both used and use are followed by an infinitive. For example:
We used to play baseball every Saturday.
I used to live in Cleveland.
There used to be a house on that corner.
The d is dropped when the sentence is negative:
I didn’t use to worry about money.
I didn’t use to celebrate Christmas.
There didn’t use to be a gas station on that corner.
