The Best Practices Conference 2010 in DC
The SharePoint Best Practices Conference is coming up next month in Washington, DC (Reston, VA, specifically). This is definitely one to look forward to.
Here are the sessions that I’ll be presenting at the conference:
Data View Web Part Best Practices – Old and New
Audience: Business Analyst, Power User, Administrator
Session Level: 200
In order to create custom business solutions in SharePoint, data view web parts are often created using SharePoint Designer. These data views are commonly used in order to take list and library views to a higher level of customization, without having to write code. In SharePoint 2010, these web parts have been drastically improved. In this session, you will learn how the data view web part best practices have changed in SharePoint 2010, which has made them not only more pervasive, but more accessible. You will learn old and new best practices related to list and library web parts, compared to views of other types of data sources.
Form Approval Process – Best Practices
Audience: Business Analysts, Project Managers, Information Workers, Power Users
Session Level: 100
In your company, forms are everywhere, and they usually have some type of workflow associated with them. Approval workflows are a very common request in SharePoint, and there are several different ways to go about creating this process. SharePoint Designer and InfoPath are common tools that are used to not only create the business form, but to run it through an approval. Depending on the business requirements, there are different best practices involved. In this session, attendees will learn how SharePoint 2010 and InfoPath 2010 can be leveraged the most efficiently to create an approval process that is best for the specific project. Improvements from 2007 to 2010 will also be discussed.
See you all there!
