Course Description: This hands-on course thoroughly covers out-of-the-box features of SharePoint and how to customize these features to make the most of your SharePoint environment. The course begins with an overview of SharePoint system architecture, then moves on to creating SharePoint web applications, site collections and sites. From there, students will add Web pages to sites and create navigation solutions for users to easily locate data. Students learn how to create new sites from scratch, as well as by built-in template. Included are team sites, wikis, blogs, web databases and meeting workspaces. Web parts and pages are then added to sites to provide greater flexibility in the way SharePoint is presented to users.
Included are techniques for using lists to promote information sharing, creating surveys, managing tasks and projects, as well as sharing calendars. Document and file management is also covered, including setting up content approval, managing major and minor file versions, and checking-out/checking-in documents.
Students will learn how to use built-in workflows, as well as how to display database records on SharePoint sites using Business Connectivity Services (BCS).
Key administrative tasks are reviewed, including site backup/restore and user access permissions assignment.
Comprehensive hands on exercises illustrate the concepts and techniques presented, and provide practice creating common SharePoint components.
Students who need to administer and configure SharePoint for an "enterprise" should register for the five-day course SharePoint 2010 Customization and Administration rather than this course.
