SharePoint allows companies to create two types of SharePoint sites: Team Sites and Communication Sites.

A team site’s primary function is project collaboration. You can decide to give access to people that need it. You can sync documents, exchange ideas, learn new things, and work more productively with your team members.

Web parts are the elements that appear on pages on a SharePoint site. Some examples of web parts include texts, images, videos, buttons, calls to action, dividers, and quick links.  

You can customize web parts and use them to display or organize information on a page. You can add, edit, configure, and move them around the page. You can also resize and delete them from the page.
