Office 365 - SharePoint Online for Document Repository

We have an E3 subscription and are looking at using SharePoint to use as a file repository and perhaps use some of the other features such as version control and co-authoring.

We don't need anything fancy, just the ability to share files with other members of specific teams. Is there a guide we can follow to implement? We are already using DirSync and have Skype for Business working as part of the E3 suite.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think you are on the right track.  There are two ways of sharing files in the Office 365 products.

1. OneDrive for Business lets users store and share files in a simple interface driven by the user.

2. SharePoint provides a variety of folder/lists for authenticated users and provides for a variety of levels of sharing.  This is more complicated to set up.  A couple of links for more background:

SharePoint can be intimidating, but with new products like Delve and Office2016, many new benefits accrue.  Some you mentioned - co-authoring and version control.  Start with a simple document directory.  But, with Outlook 2016, the new group option can quickly provide shared calendar and more.
