Course Description: This hands-on course thoroughly covers the out-of-the-box features of SharePoint 2010 and how to customize these features to make the most of your SharePoint environment. The course begins with a thorough overview of the out-of-the-box features and customization using SharePoint Designer 2010, then moves on to adding pages to sites and adding navigation solutions for sites. Students learn the details of how to create new sites from scratch or by using site templates, pages and web parts available in SharePoint 2010, including wikis, blogs, team sites, web databases and meeting workspaces. This includes web parts that work with Outlook, such as displaying an inbox or calendar, sharing Visio diagrams, and co-authoring of Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. The course also covers how to create custom web parts from scratch.
Included are techniques for using lists to promote information sharing, create surveys, mange the status of tasks and projects and share calendars, as well as the creation of custom lists either from scratch or based on spreadsheets. Document and file management are also covered, including setting up content approval, managing major and minor changes to documents, and checking-out/checking-in documents.
Students will learn how to use built-in workflows as well as how to create custom workflows using SharePoint Designer 2010. The SharePoint Designer will also be used to define custom master pages to control the look and feel of sites, as well as use cascading style sheets (CSS) to completely customize and standardize site and page appearance. Also covered are techniques for displaying database records on SharePoint sites using Business Connectivity Services (BCS).
Key administrative tasks are reviewed, including how to manage workflows and manage user permissions and security.
Comprehensive hands on exercises illustrate the concepts and techniques presented, and provide practice creating common SharePoint components including lists, libraries, blogs, calendars, wikis, announcements and tasks. Exercises also include use of the SharePoint Designer 2010 tool.
Students who will also need to administrate and configure Sharepoint for the enterprise should register for the five-day course SharePoint 2010 Customization and Administration rather than this course.
