Making the Most of the Out-Of-Box Web Parts

There are over 50 out-of-the-box Web parts in the enterprise version of SharePoint! In this class, you will learn just how flexible and useful these Web parts are. Not only will you get a detailed look at the Filter, Excel, Social, Rollup and Media Web parts, but you will also learn about a few new ones in SharePoint 2013 such as the Content Search Web Part. You will then learn how to customize some of these Web parts, see examples, demonstrations, and learn about new features.   All of this is done without writing any code. Push SharePoint as far as you can with out-of-box functionality! This class is a mixture of 2010 and new 2013 Web parts.

Creating an Approval Workflow, Part I

Forms and documents are everywhere in your organization, and a lot of them must go through an approval process. SharePoint is such a flexible platform it provides us with multiple methods that can be used to build our processes. In this class, learn about these different out-of-box ways to create a workflow around a form approval process. You will see the various alternatives when creating an approval workflow such as content approval, out-of-box workflows, and the task process designer in a SharePoint Designer workflow. Quickly create and implement intuitive workflows for your critical IT and business systems with no programming involved! The concepts in this class are applicable to both SharePoint 2010 and 2013. This is part one of a two-part class, covering only the simple and purely out-of-box settings and functionalities.

Quickly create and implement intuitive workflows for your critical IT and business systems with no programming involved!
