SharePoint Jumpstart Program

SharePoint-Jumpstart-Program

Learn to navigate SharePoint sites and maximize your day-to-day SharePoint skills

Has your company recently realized the power of SharePoint? Are you currently working on implementation and aren’t sure where to start? Maybe you simply want to get more out of SharePoint?

SharePoint is a compelling business application but often when implemented, companies don’t know how to arm their users with the skills to incorporate SharePoint benefits into their everyday work. SharePoint can be a powerful platform for areas like business process automation, business intelligence, development, and project management but often turns into an expensive content management system when your team does not have a full understanding of how to take advantage of its features.

The SharePoint Jumpstart Program is designed to give your team the necessary knowledge and skills to realize the full benefits of day-to-day SharePoint collaboration.  The courses provide a complete understanding of application features that can be implemented to ensure SharePoint is an effective technology solution for your company.

In this program, students will:

  • Learn how other businesses leverage information management using SharePoint
  • Explore the value of Communities and how they drive teams to work together better
  • Get a comprehensive introduction to the SharePoint interface as well as its new features
  • Share documents and collaborate on documents with your team using Libraries
  • Fully understand Enterprise Content Management and how to use SharePoint to guarantee your corporate information is useable and findable
  • Learn how to use the out-of-the-box (OOTB) Workflow system to automate business processes as well as how to use SharePoint Designer to start building custom workflows
  • Leave this course with the understanding of how the many components of SharePoint come together to create a complete platform.
  • And much more...

Introduction to SharePoint for End Users

The first class in this series is a "SharePoint 101" class to introduce users to SharePoint navigation, core tools, and features for team and project member day-to-day collaboration with SharePoint. This class is targeted to End Users (team members, project members). Students will learn the basics of SharePoint through questions and answers with a SharePoint subject matter expert. They will have a clear understanding of the value of SharePoint and will be able to benefit from the rest of the series.


SharePoint Site Owner and Power User Boot Camp

In this class, an in-depth study of how to use Lists and Libraries, students will learn how to navigate a SharePoint site, how to work with data in Lists and how to use Libraries to store and collaborate on documents. As an organization creates new Lists to manage business processes, the student will be able to immediately use those new custom lists. Once a solid understanding of the basics is covered, more advanced topics addressed directly to those SharePoint user roles that own and manage the content will be covered. Because this course is a deep-dive into advanced concepts, the student will not only understand how to configure and build Lists and Libraries, but how to do so to address the bigger picture of being able to find valuable information across the enterprise.
 

SharePoint for Business Process Automation

The final course in this program is designed to provide students with a deep dive into SharePoint automation ranging from working with documentation to managing records to full workflow processes and task tracking. The discussion begins with a quick review of SharePoint core concepts such as out-of-the-box apps. Once students have a solid foundation of basic and advanced tools, the class shifts to web based forms using InfoPath. Students will then finish with methods of modifying workflow templates, as well as producing powerful custom workflows from scratch using SharePoint designer to solve actual issues in the work place.
