Course description

Many technologies that support the creation if a social enterprise have been around for over 10 to 15 years. As a result a special group of users has grown accustom to taking technology into their own hands and building solutions to meet their needs. In this course we’ll honor these power users by reviewing the advanced features within SharePoint 2013 that support these initiatives. We’ll not only take a look how a power user can encourage peers to collaborate but how they can control navigation and manage security. In this course you will truly learn to take advantage of SharePoint’s features through the utilization of metadata applied to lists and documents and how to present this information on custom pages of your own.


This course assumes a basic level of familiarity with Microsoft Office 2010 or 2013 and Internet Browsers: Explorer 8+, Firefox, or Chrome.
