Course Description: This introductory hands-on course teaches students how to deploy, configure, manage and customize a SharePoint 2016 environment. The course begins with students installing Windows Server, complete with a rudimentary Active Directory domain. Next, a thorough overview of SharePoint's "out-of-the-box" features is presented, followed by the installation of IIS, SQL Server and SharePoint Server. SharePoint management using PowerShell and the Central Administration utility is a primary focus of the course.

Students learn how to generate new sites using built-in templates, as well as how to create sites from scratch. Popular content components are also covered, including wikis, blogs, team sites, Web databases and meeting workspaces.

Included are techniques for using built-in lists to promote information sharing, as well as the creation of custom lists. Document and file management are also covered, including content approval settings, document versioning and document check-out. Co-authoring of Microsoft Office documents is also covered.

Students will learn how to use built-in workflows to automate business rules. Business Connectivity Services (BCS) will also be used to connect "external" database tables to SharePoint Web pages.

SharePoint social networking features are reviewed. These include how to configure My Sites, which allows users to manage their own Web content. Also demonstrated is the Tags & Notes feature, which allows users to "like" and comment on SharePoint Web content. Synchronization of Active Directory user profiles with SharePoint is also covered.

Comprehensive hands on exercises include creation of common SharePoint components such as lists, libraries, blogs, calendars, wikis, announcements and tasks. Students will add custom pages to their SharePoint sites and build navigation systems thereto. Students will also practice implementing business rules and content access permissions. Content security and integrity are emphasized throughout.

Course Prerequisites: Familiarity with daily Windows Server 2012 R2 system administration. Basic understanding of Active Directory domains and organizational units (OUs). Basic understanding of NTFS file & folder permissions and network access.
