Topic: Build Successful SharePoint Libraries

SharePoint libraries are designed to store many types of business documents, but there are times when a SharePoint Site Administrator needs to control and monitor closely the documents in a library.

This month’s SFSPUG meeting we will be discussing SharePoint’s four main tools for controlling library content.

Join us for “Build Successful SharePoint Libraries” and learn to control:

  1. Library Content
  2. Document Versions
  3. Check-Out Policy
  4. Retention Policy
  5. An Introduction to Metadata: The important role it plays in your business

Presentation: The Intranet Reloaded – Not your grandma’s old Intranet

The Intranet was long been viewed as a basic portal to share news and information about the business and possibly keep link to a few documents.

More recently, a different train on thought has flipped this idea on its head and challenged us to think about using the concept of the Intranet as a focal point for digital content to deliver a more managed and integrated workplace experience.

Shailen will present on just such a journey that a client has taken with their Intranet site to reach a higher maturity model by leveraging the Intranet as a platform for integrating News, Notifications, Videos, Payslips, Search, Rostering, Careers, Targeting, Multi-device support, Documents and People Search and all of this in just the first release with plans to build a lot more functionality on top.

Topics presented in this talk will include:

  • The Digital Workplace Maturity Model
  • Office 365
  • Azure
  • ADFS
  • Taxonomy
  • SharePoint Add-Ins (formerly Apps)
  • Thinking of Performance as a feature
  • Differences between an Intranet and a Digital Workplace

Presenter: Shailen Sukul

Shailen is a SharePoint/Office 365 Consultant, Azure Architect, SCRUM Master and Evangelist and has worked for clients in the US and Australia on technologies in SharePoint and Azure.

When not working with SharePoint/Azure, he likes to tinker with Kiosks for his Startup in his spare time.

He currently lives in Melbourne, Australia with his wife and 4 year old boy, but also commutes to California for work occasionally.
