SharePoint Designer can be used to create powerful workflows on your site. You can create workflows on a list or library, create reusable workflows or create site based workflows. This video focuses on creating list workflows. While showing you how to create a list workflow, the various capabilities of the workflow designer environment (such as steps, conditions, actions, parallel branching, moving actions around etc) are explained so you can take full advantage of this robust environment.

Our Real World SharePoint 2010 book is finally available now. One chapter each from 22 MVPs. That’s a lot of ‘expert’ content and hopefully will be beneficial for folks looking to get deep into SharePoint 2010 (this book is also available on the Kindle).
The chapter that I wrote in the book focused on ‘Automating Business Processes using InfoPath 2010 and SharePoint Designer 2010’. Wrox publishing has decided to make this chapter available to download for free here. Enjoy!
Beginning SharePoint Designer 2010 book now available on the Kindle:
Also available on the Nook and as an electronic eBook to read on other devices.
Well… hopefully all the answers :-). Our SharePoint Designer 2010 book went on sale a couple of days ago. It’s been awesome to work with Woody, Bryan and Marcy to write this book.
Only time will tell how good it does in the market. However, in my humble opinion, I think everyone who is using or planning to use SharePoint Designer 2010 should pick up a copy (and I’m honestly not saying this because 0.0001% of the book proceeds will come my way 🙂 ).
Anyway, the chapters that I contributed to the book dealt with the following subjects:
- Workflows (fundamentals and advanced functionality – 2 chapters)
- XSLT List and Data Views
Even though the book is called ‘Beginning’ SharePoint Designer 2010, it honestly is not only for beginners. If you are looking to start from scratch or you already have been using SPD 2007 or SPD 2010 for a while, either way it will help for sure! There is a lot of good content that we have all tried to put in this book. Some of it is not available anywhere else on the web (that I was able to find at least).
If you do happen to pick up a copy, I would like to request that if you get a chance, please write a review of it on Amazon. Appreciate it! Happy reading!
