Add SharePoint Site to Local Intranet Security Zone in IE

SharePoint sites are best viewed with a Windows computer using Internet Explorer as the web browser.

As more and more people are beginning to use SharePoint to share information, you have probably found yourself accessing a SharePoint site (e.g. a program team site, CED, Area, or County site). To save yourself from having to logon each time and remember to add the AG\ before your UserID, you can add the SharePoint site to your Trusted Sites within Internet Explorer.

NOTE: You should ONLY do these steps on your PRIMARY College of Ag Sciences EN computer. If you share an EN computer or logon to SharePoint from a home machine, we recommend that you DO NOT complete these steps. On secondary machines you should logon with AG\ followed by your UserID and AG password each time. This is the recommended, and more secure method. You should also not allow Internet Explorer to remember the password on a secondary machine.
