I’m excited to be returning to speak at the first-ever SharePoint Saturday (SPS) event at which I spoke. Omaha is such a fun city, and has one of the best zoos around. Be sure to register (it’s free!) and check it out on Saturday, April 7. Here are the two sessions at which I hope I’ll get to meet you:
Building the intranet of the future: Using SharePoint to empower collaboration
9:45 am – 10:45 am | Room 119
Track: Power User/Business User
Automation, organization, incredible search capabilities and user interactivity; all things your organization can have in choosing to build an intranet with SharePoint. We’ll discuss avoiding File Dump 2.0 by exploring best practices in internal communications and collaboration via intranets, rethinking forms and minimizing busy work by utilizing automation capabilities in SPD workflows and Microsoft Flow and designing intuitive navigation.
Whether on-prem or in the cloud, Microsoft Flow is the tool of choice for automation in digital collaboration. Don’t have Flow yet? Even the free license allows 750 runs/month and unlimited flows. Participants will leave this session having seen demos of creative flows that impress colleagues by saving time and money and connecting services and sites previously considered incompatible. Think beyond SharePoint Designer and get ready to learn about converting docs to PDF, connecting to your local or shared file system, managing social media, and connecting different SharePoint sites in new ways.
