SharePoint Designer 2010 Webinar Recording

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.


List Workflows on SharePoint Designer 2010

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.
