Did you know that in the past three years, we have conducted dozens of no-cost webinars? Focus of each one has been purely on educating SharePoint users from a variety of SharePoint experiences. In the beginning, we weren’t recording these, but then we got smarter and started recording them finally a couple of years back. All of the past webinar recordings are listed on the site. We haven’t done a webinar in the past few months unfortunately and itching to get another one on schedule. If you have a good idea for a seminar, let me know. I’ll see what we can do.
The reason for this post is to make you aware of the webinar recordings that are out there on the site. No need to register or anything, just click on the link and watch the webinar. Hopefully, it is helpful to you. If not, pass on this info to someone else who you think can benefit from it. Here are some of the webinars:

Generally the best story for creating custom workflows in SharePoint 2010 is to stick with the declarative and most productive option: use SharePoint
Designer 2010. However there are situations when SharePoint Designer cannot achieve some business requirements. One common example is when you need to implement some sort of a loop. In this session, you’ll see what’s involved in creating a custom activity (action) in Visual Studio 2010 and deploy it to SharePoint so it can be used in SharePoint Designer based workflows.

Business Connectivity Services allows you to both read from and write data
back to your external systems! BCS allows you to surface your external data in SharePoint AND inside of Office applications, meaning your data is that much more accessible! One of the big stumbling blocks in getting started with the BDC was the lack of tooling support from Microsoft. With BCS, both SharePoint Designer 2010 and Visual Studio 2010 have first-class support for building solutions with the BCS. What’s even better, many common scenarios can be handled with just SharePoint Designer 2010, without needing a developer or Visual Studio.

However, it can be a challenge for a project manager to share project information and collaborate with the project team with Microsoft Project alone. Microsoft SharePoint 2010 can complement Microsoft Project 2010 and address this gap.

Nearly every organization already uses SharePoint at some level for simple things like document management, but many times all of the other things SharePoint does really well go unused. This webinar shows how to leverage features like discussion boards, task lists, shared calendars, roll-up web parts and more to manage most or all of your projects in one place! We discuss ways for providing self-serve status updates that automatically roll-up to the summary pages per each project (and even across all of your projects).
In this webinar, demonstrations and discussions were conducted by the panelists. Some of the topics talked about in the panel: SharePoint Calendar sharing SharePoint Designer in Production Data View web part Using PowerShell to list all SharePoint sites and subsites Printing of SharePoint list data Downloading more than one file at a time without a 3rd party add-on Checking permissions for a user InfoPath 2010 resources and more.
