Workshop Description/Agenda

This hands-on course thoroughly covers out-of-the-box features of SharePoint and how to customize these features to make the most of your SharePoint environment. The course begins with an overview of SharePoint system architecture, then moves on to creating SharePoint Web sites. From there, students will deploy navigation solutions for users to easily locate data. Students learn how to create new sites from scratch, as well as from built-in templates. Web parts and pages are then added to sites to provide greater flexibility in the way SharePoint is presented to users.

Included are techniques for using lists to promote information sharing, creating surveys, managing tasks and projects, as well as sharing calendars. Document and file management is also covered, including setting up content approval, managing major and minor file versions, and checking-out/checking-in documents.

Students will learn how to use built-in workflows, as well as how to display database records on SharePoint sites using Business Connectivity Services (BCS).

Comprehensive hands on exercises illustrate the concepts and techniques presented, and provide practice creating common SharePoint components.

During the last day of class, students are introduced to third-party Nintex Workflow and Nintex Forms software. Nintex’s enhanced workflow functionality is explored, and students create workflow types not shown during the first three days of class. Students have the opportunity to edit previously designed workflows using Nintex’s intuitive design canvas. Nintex’s highly visual forms system is also covered. Students develop enhanced, company-branded dialog boxes and data input forms. These serve to replace SharePoint’s built-in forms solutions. Students will also create list-based forms that include error checking and user input rules.

Students who are not interested in the Nintex Workflow and Nintex Forms portion of class should take the 3-day Sharepoint 2013 Power User course.


Familiarity with Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows desktop operating system environment (Windows 8.1 or later). Basic understanding of NTFS file & folder structure and network access.
