  • SharePoint Basics: Lists and Libraries

    by Susan Lennon

    If you’re new to SharePoint and want to know what you can do with lists and libraries, then this is the session for you! We’ll explain document libraries and lists, and look at what you get out of the box. We’ll look at how to add custom columns, alerts, views and even explore the workflows that are baked in with the different versions of SharePoint. No tools needed here, just your everyday web browser.

  • Limitless: The SharePoint 2010 Content Query Web Part

    by Peter Serzo

    SharePoint 2010 has several new features for the Content Query Web Part. This session will delve into the web part and look at how to use the whole web part, not just the 30% which is typically used. The CQWP will be uncovered and well understood including identifying limitations and how to get around some of those.

  • Invisible Record and Content Management

    by Randy Hardy

    SharePoint does not provide robust governance out of the box, which hinders migration from expensive content management platforms to SharePoint. See how you can leverage SP as the platform to deliver a great user experience, while enhancing compliance.

  • How an Internal Corporate SPUG (SharePoint User Group) increases user adoption and best practices

    Bank of America has the largest corporate SharePoint implementation with over 24,000 SharePoint sites and over 200,000 users. One of the reasons for our high rate of user adoption is our internal SPUG. We hold three weekly meetings (Basic, Advanced, and Designer) run by volunteer power users. Our SPUG hosts a Q&A discussion forum, Knowledge base, and web part library and provides mentoring, tips and tricks, and best practices.

    This LT session will cover how we created a successful SPUG and suggestions for starting and running your own internal SPUG.

    Coverage note

  • Quickly Set up SharePoint to Manage Your Projects

    by Dora Tarver

    SharePoint sites provide a fast and effective way to manage your project. In my presentation I will discuss the following with visual examples.

    • What you need to get started
    • We will discuss why a ‘team site’ is selected.
    • Recommended lists and libraries such as issues tracking, calendar, user tasks, project tasks and Wiki
    • Ease of using the presents features for collaboration makes a managers life easier when the Lync Server is installed and configured
    • How setting alerts helps you be aware of changes or the creation of new issues and tasks.

    SharePoint out of the box allows you to quickly create a management portal and implement the controls you need to successfully deliver your projects.

  • Re-Experience SharePoint: Ripping Apart the SharePoint 2010 Interface

    by Mark Miller

    At the KMWorld Conference last year, Peter Moreville said something in the keynote that rang as true as the Liberty Bell: "When competing for grants, the prettiest pictures win the funding." This was an epiphany for me. We all know it's true, but are we taking advantage of it? Are we using all of the resources at our disposal to create an intuitive interface that will encourage participation and user buy-in of our sites?

    In this session, we'll examine a default team site created in SharePoint 2010. We'll rip apart the presentation layer, piece by piece, exposing the underlying structure and CSS to see what can be done to create a more intuitive and aesthetically pleasing site.

    At the conclusion of the session, you will have an understanding of how the presentation layer of SharePoint pages is structured and what you can do to make your site stand out from the basic SharePoint sites you see everyday. To paraphrase Moreville, "When it comes to End User buy-in, the interface wins the funding." Let's work together to get you that funding.

  • Content Types 101: Easier than the Theory of Relativity

    by Tamara Bredemus

    Everyone talks about them, but what the heck are they and how can I use them?

    We’ll start with some demos of how to use custom content types, then on to what the heck are content types anyway and we’ll end with another demo to build content types in the browser.

    Although the demos will be in SharePoint Server 2010, the steps to create content types are basically the same for WSS 3.0 and MOSS 2007.
