SharePoint Saturday is an educational, informative, and lively day filled with sessions from respected SharePoint professionals and MVPs, covering a wide variety of SharePoint-orientated topics. SharePoint Saturday is free, open to the public, and is your local chance to immerse yourself in SharePoint! Breakfast, lunch, and a snack will be provided courtesy of our generous sponsors. They will also be raffling off lots of exciting gifts.

Running Effective​​ Projects in Office 365

Many organizations create project site templates to manage their projects in SharePoint, either online or on premises. However SharePoint is only part of the equation when it comes to collaborating effectively on projects. Office 365 Groups attempt to go further with that, but ends up scaling back on what you can do in SharePoint. We've blended the best of both together.

This session will cover the following:

  • Review of a Projects site template we've created in Office 365 using SharePoint Online and Office 365 Groups
  • How we extend the Office 365 Groups UI, and also include it in the SharePoint sites
  • Build a site creation workflow process to automate the creation of sites and groups in Office 365, project groups in Extranet User Manager, and configure all the permissions
  • Using Nintex Forms and Workflows to drive this process
  • Inviting external users into the project site with Extranet User Manager
  • How to maintain private internal content and project content shared with the external group
  • Single sign-on to other project tools outside of Office 365
