Please join your peers February 15th for the monthly SharePoint Community of Practice Meeting. The purpose of a NYS Forum Community of Practice group is to provide a setting for the community to focus on a technology established in NYS government. The NYS Office of Information Technology Services (ITS) has adopted a single operating platform, Office365, for consolidated Office applications and email in a cloud based system for the agencies ITS supports. It is important that staff make the best use of the available enterprise tools. The goal of this group is to maximize the utilization of the SharePoint platform in ways which will assist NYS government to increase the efficiency of business processes.

February Agenda:

"I have a Site Collection now what?"

We will have interactive sessions that will jump start your mind and help you get the "Process Started!"

Sessions - Common User Questions:
  • What's so good about SharePoint? Why do I need another place to store documents?
  • Why is it so hard to find things on the SharePoint page?
  • How can I get Site Owners to setup a site that I want to use?
What you will leave with:
  • Workplan including checklist of activities for Site Owners to use when planning a site
  • Improved skills to setup an interface that is easy to navigate and has webparts
  • Understanding of why prototyping possibilities before setting up your site works

Community of Practice presentations and discussions are provided by your peers in the SharePoint community. What topics would you like to have presented? Would you like to share your experience with the community? Please email [email protected] with your suggestions or comments.
