Speaking at SharePoint Evolution Conference

This April, I’m very excited to be invited again to speak at the SharePoint Evolution Conference in London.  This is the largest SharePoint conference in the world in 2015!

There really is no conference like this one.  Besides the fact that it’s just awesome and it brings together the top experts in the world, the conference also provides attendees with a set of DVDs of all conference sessions afterwards!  Also, as a bonus, a new 4th day has been added as a free dev day for Office 365 developers.

See you there!

My sessions are:

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

There are over fifty out-of-the-box web parts in the enterprise version of SharePoint!  In this session, 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 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 using out-of-box functionality!

Creating a Business Solution Workflow, Part 1

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 session, learn about these different out-of-box ways to create a workflow around a form approval process. Laura Rogers will show you the various alternatives when creating an approval workflow: 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 session are applicable to SharePoint 2010, 2013 and Office 365.

This is part 1 of a 2 part presentation. This first part has only the simple and purely out-of-box settings and functionalities.

Creating a Business Solution Workflow, Part 2

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.  Quickly create and implement intuitive workflows for your critical IT and business systems, with no programming involved!  In this advanced session, learn about creating a completely custom new hire approval process.  In this part 2 session, Laura Rogers will build out an HR onboarding workflow in SharePoint Designer, using a complex example that involves a process with both serial and parallel components, with multiple workflows.  The concepts in this session are applicable to SharePoint 2010, 2013 and Office 365.

This is part 2 of a 2 part presentation.  This second part has only advanced concepts geared towards those who are already familiar with SharePoint Designer workflows.

    Hi Laura, question on your HR Onboarding Power Hours! They really helped a ton!! (I also posted on YouTube)

    Question… There is the New Hire Lookup:ID field we created in the Workflow Tasks “app” we added during one of the the power hours. There is another field named ID in Workflow Tasks but this ID does not relate to the New Hire Lookup:ID. For instance for a New Hire, the New Hire Lookup:ID=77 but the ID=271. I noticed this when I modified the New Hires view and added “ID” to the New Hires list. I need to find that field and use it elsewhere in the Workflows but every time I reference ID, I get the 77 returned, not the 271 I want. Reason I need this field is this is the field I can use when bypassing the “Edit Item” button and going right into the Approve/Reject screen. Thus saving a click. When i Edit Item, ths ID=271 is in the URL and it is very usable if I can find it.

    Thanks if you can help!!
