Sunday

9:00 AM – 5:00 PM: Building Business Solutions: InfoPath & Workflows

Jennifer Mason and Laura Rogers

Business Processes and forms are everywhere. In your organization, there are always forms to be filled out, and these forms usually entail some type of automation such as a workflow. Microsoft Office InfoPath is a powerful form-creation tool that lets you create highly customized and professional-looking business forms, without writing any code. When you use this product in conjunction with SharePoint and SharePoint Designer, you have all the tools you need to build a no-code automated business solution.

In this all-day session, Laura and Jennifer will teach you everything you need to know about creating a full-blown business process using SharePoint, InfoPath and SharePoint Designer. Some basics will be covered, along with common practices for form-submission approval processes and SharePoint Designer workflows. When you walk away from this session, you will be confident that whatever processes the business throws at you, you will be able to create a solution using the tools and best practices that you learned during this workshop.

Monday

Do you know all of the different things you can do using SharePoint lists and libraries? In this session, we will take a look at the different out-of-the-box list features and how they can be combined to build powerful no-code business solutions. We will look at the new features available in SharePoint 2010 and how they can be used to increase productivity. Some of the new features include working with lookup columns, new list settings, new view settings, inline editing and custom form creation.

11:30 AM – 12:45 PM Introduction to Visio Services

Visio services is a powerful new addition to SharePoint 2010. In this session, we will look at different ways that you can incorporate Visio into your SharePoint projects. Once we have the diagrams published to our SharePoint site we will look at different ways to connect the diagram to SharePoint lists and web parts.

This session will allow you to see Visio services in action using real world examples, such as an interactive process diagram. If you have ever wondered if you would use Visio services or if it would provide value to your organization then this intro session is just want you need! This session will help you see how integration with SharePoint can really take your drawings to the next level.
