Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Atlanta!

On June 8, 2013, SharePoint Saturday will be held in Atlanta at Georgia State University. I’m really looking forward to it!  My session will be:

InfoPath and SharePoint Designer Workflows Together

In your organization, forms are everywhere. InfoPath is a program that lets you quickly and easily create forms for business users to fill out and submit. The easy part is creating the form… the more complicated part is finding out what needs to happen when it gets submitted, and automating that process. This is where workflows come in. InfoPath forms and SharePoint Designer workflows can be used in conjunction, in order to create a complete business process. In this session, Laura Rogers will discuss and compare the different ways that forms can be submitted and streamlined, so that the life cycle of the form is efficient and logical. This includes best practices around the form’s data connections, buttons, rules, views, and the workflow that sends the form through an approval process. All of this is done with no code needed, just making the most of the InfoPath and SharePoint Designer out-of-box functionalities. The concepts in this session can be applied in any version of SharePoint.

Book Signing

I’ll be giving away 15 free copies of my new book, Beginning SharePoint 2013: Building Business Solutions, at our Rackspace booth.  Come to the booth in the morning and put your business card in the bowl.  We’ll be doing the drawing in the afternoon, and will contact the winners to pick up their signed book!

Registration is now open, so I’ll see you all there!



  • Enjoyed your session at SharePoint Saturday Atlanta! Have the 2013 book already (didn’t bring it with me Saturday or I would have had you sign it).

    Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for a great session with just the information I needed.


  • Thanks Robin!
