Thanks to SPTechCon and all the folks that attended my sessions last week in San Francisco. This was my first time in San Francisco and it was a great time to see some familiar faces, meet some new friends, and explore a very cool city. I did 2 sessions and I thought both turned out great.
Here are the session abstracts and link to the slides and any other supporting content.
Essentials for the SharePoint Power User
LINK TO SLIDES
Are you a newly minted site owner and you want to know how to get started? Or did your company just roll out SharePoint and you want to learn more about what it can do?
In this session, I will walk through what Power Users need to know when they become site administrators, champions, ninjas, or owners. I will be going through things at an overview level. I will go into detail on some areas in which I have seen the biggest gaps while working with different companies. This session will go through such things as:
· Managing security
· Managing libraries and lists
· Managing search
· What are the features available and what do they do?
· Building a useful site with pages, views and web parts
Office 365 Groups from the Ground Up
LINK TO SLIDES
LINK TO SCRIPTS
Office 365 Groups enable teams to work together by establishing a single identity in Office 365. Office 365 Groups are a new and modern solution for collaboration in Office 365. There is a lot of confusion on what Groups can do and should be used for. This session will be a deep dive into all things Office 365 Groups focusing on the technical aspects..
We will spend a large amount of this session demoing Office 365 Groups. This session will include demos of:
- How to create, access, and navigate
- What are the core things to do
- How are they technically structured
- What administration is available and how to do it
- What extensibility options are there
I will also walk through the pros and cons of using Groups vs other collaboration options in Office 365. Groups are also one of the fastest changing solutions in Office 365, so this session will bring everyone up to speed on the most recent updates that Microsoft has rolled out and what innovations are next. By the end of the session you should have a better understanding of what Groups can do and if they are right for your enterprise right now or in the future!
And here’s a fun picture of some crabs that I took.
