On Thursday, May 13th, we conducted a webinar on Making the Best use of SharePoint Designer 2010. In this webinar, I started with an explanation of why you would want to use SPD 2010 instead of the browser to create your site components. Then I dug deeper into showing how you can create powerful workflows. Then the last thing I demonstrated was how easy it is to fetch data from a database and show on a SharePoint page. Along the way, there were many good questions that attendees asked and I attempted to answer as many as I could in the allotted time.
Due to overwhelming request, we decided to record the webinar and make it available to everyone. You can watch the recording in its entirety here:
This webinar recording will be available for everyone until May 26th. It will then be moved to the subscribers only area.
I’ll be teaching the SharePoint Designer 2010 course again online next week. It’s a 5 day online course packed with info on SPD 2010. Hope you can join me. Check out this page for more info:
Missed the SharePoint and Office 2010 Launch on Wednesday, May 12th? You can watch the recordings for this event here:
In a previous article regarding Workflow Designer in SharePoint Designer 2010, I had tried to point out as many new things as I could think of at the time regarding the workflow designer environment. However, the fact remains that a video will always be a better way to communicate ideas than an article ever can (at least about a technical subject). So we have made the video on List Workflows using SharePoint Designer 2010 free on the site for a limited amount of time. This video highlights the following areas and more:
- Designing workflows using the workflow designer environment
- Moving actions/conditions up and down within and across workflow steps
- Parallel branching in workflows
- Workflow settings
- Focus on a few activities: Send an email, Set workflow status etc.
Check it out and let me know your thoughts/comments. Thanks.
