Register to attend one of my upcoming Microsoft Ignite virtual after parties

I’m hosting two Microsoft Ignite After Parties the week after Ignite and I would love for you to join me and my co-host Lea Wendling of Centriq Training for one or both events. Join us for a playback of a specific breakout session followed by a live quiz competition (participation optional), Q&A, and a two-way conversation as we debrief the breakout session together.

The approximate agenda for both virtual after parties is as follows:

  • Welcome & Introduction by Nate and Lea (~10 mins)
  • Playback of Microsoft Ignite Session (~30 mins)
  • Live quiz competition to win a Microsoft-related prize (~10 mins)
  • Technical Discussion, Q&A led by Nate and Lea (~20 mins)
  • Closing notes (~10 mins)

And below you’ll find the specific after party options and their registration links:

All you need to know about Microsoft Lists (Recording from Wisconsin SharePoint User Group)

My colleague Mickie Brewer and I recently had the privilege to co-present an introduction to Microsoft Lists at the Wisconsin SharePoint User Group. We highlighted and demonstrated all the main concepts of Microsoft Lists in an hour including:

  • List templates,
  • My Lists vs SharePoint,
  • Teams integration,
  • Columns and views,
  • Conditional formatting,
  • Connected web parts,
  • and much more

Alex Lorenzo also presented “Site templates and site scripts for site provisioning in modern SharePoint” after our segment (included in recording – check it out!).

Thank you to WISPUG co-organizer Anthony Escobedo for the original invite, co-organizer Jonathan Schultz for facilitating and sharing the recording, and co-organizers Drew Madelung and Matt Engibous for providing such an awesome opportunity for their group members and visitors to learn with and from one another on a regular basis.
