User Profiles: I Didn’t Know I Could Do That!!

A session at SharePoint Fest Chicago 2015

Wednesday 9th December, 2015

4:20pm to 5:30pm (CST)

Many think that the User Profile service is simply used for connecting SharePoint to Active Directory so that the attributes can be synced into their user profiles in SharePoint. They also know they can add really cool pictures to their profile along with some additional information that the others can see if you give them the ability to.

User profiles are so much more than that and I could talk for hours about all the great things that it can do. Many don't realize it but you can increase user adoption by implementing some of cool features and connections to other service applications such as Managed Metadata and Search. In this session we go through the configuration of the user profile service application and the integration with the other service applications to build your one stop shop for company information.

Areas that will be covered in this session:

Custom User Properties
Deeper Active Directory Integration
Relevant Searching
Company Directory
Deep Dive into a Profile
