My Sessions from SPC and SPTechCon
SharePoint Conference (SPC) was in Las Vegas in March. Here is the recording of the session that Jennifer Mason and I did, called
Tips & Tricks to make the most out of your SharePoint site and maximize adoption
This is a very basic session, geared towards power users and site managers. A lot of the tips we mention have been around for a few years, and some of them are brand new. With each tip we cover, we give you some resource links that will help you go further with that solution. Here is our spreadsheet of links.
Also, while at SPC, Karuana Gatimu interviewed me for SPCtv. We talked about requirements gathering for automating business processes in SharePoint.

Last week was SPTechCon in San Francisco. I taught 4 sessions.
The one called “Creating an Approval Workflow” was a fun new one. I went over the easy, out of box ways of doing approvals in SharePoint, then went into a more real-world scenario with a more complex workflow. There is also a zip file in there associated with this presentation, which has the actual workflow diagrams I exported from SPD. Here are the files:
- Creating an Approval Workflow – This is the PowerPoint presentation
- Creating an Approval Workflow – New Hire Demo – This is the diagram of the complex workflow
- Creating an Approval Workflow- Diagrams to import to SPD 2013– This is the workflow itself, exported from SharePoint Designer 2013.
I was in your presentation on Friday morning.
You said somthing about rerouting certain users to a list, page or library depending on who there are.
It was just mentioned and not shown in the demo.
Do you have a post with the procedure to do that.
Everything I look for requires coding..
In web part settings, you can pick a specific audience of people to be able to see that web part. Also, if you had a web part that simply had some simple redirect code, you could target that web part to an audience, so that you would only get redirected if you were in that audience. Here’s a post that shows that redirect code https://www.nothingbutsharepoint.com/sites/eusp/Pages/redirect-a-sharepoint-site-by-using-the-content-editor-web-part.aspx
