SharePoint 2010 Part 2: Power User (Super-User)

A course for Site Owners to discover how SharePoint can work for you!

SharePoint has a plethora of wonderful features that enable people to manage business data productively, provided these features are in the right place, at the right time, and doing the right job. Having people working properly with SharePoint is only half the battle; having SharePoint working properly for people is the next challenge.

Any successful SharePoint deployment only delivers when it works properly. We can sculpt your SharePoint environment to suit your business need, or we can train up nominated individuals within your organisation to do it. If you want to delegate responsibility back to the business, providing quicker change turnaround and bringing a sound working knowledge of the SharePoint environment into the department, then this is the course for you!

Purpose of this course

Considered a follow-on course fro our SharePoint 2010 Part 1: End-User  - course, this part-2 course uses plenty of practical exercises to provide attendees with skills and knowledge required to transform default sites into bespoke organisation-specific functionality, creating a SharePoint environment using features explored in our End user course.

Who is this course for

The content and structure is directly aimed at non-technical users seeking to extend their journey which began in the SharePoint 2010 Part 1: End-User  - course into a role where they create a SharePoint environment for their users. Using features found in the End User course, attendees will configure those components in the form of practical exercises to enable SharePoint to be used to its fullest potential within the business. 

You will learn how to
  • Appreciate the role and responsibilities expected of a Power User
  • Take ownership of a site collection and customise it to business requirements
  • Appreciate SharePoint security concepts and manipulate permissions safely
  • Create surveys, discussion boards, libraries, lists and views confidently
  • Implement library and list features to control content changes more effectively
  • Customise libraries with custom fields, new content types and workflows
  • Create new sites and customise them by manipulating web parts
  • Configure and define site searches and scopes
  • Manage objects found within an entire site collection
Benefits for your organisation

To obtain the greatest benefit from SharePoint, sites need to be properly created with the right functionality to fulfill specific business requirements. If your organisation uses SharePoint, it makes sense to have nominated individuals empowered to manage SharePoint sites, delegating responsibilities way from IT sections and back into the business.

Benefits for you as an individual

Your SharePoint journey continues! you will take control of an entire Site Collection and begin building your own site using a variety of features experienced from the End User course. You will reconfigure sites quickly, securely, and confortably; whilst contributing strategically to the effective organisation of data within your business unit.

Your answers to daily questions won't just be "SharePoint can do that!", but often "I know how we can do that in SharePoint!"
