Here’s some examples. Say you wanted to plan a conference, keep a record of sports equipment loans, or track complaints. You might use Microsoft Lists to store those records. Power Automate to request approvals and send confirmation emails and develop a SharePoint site to host the system. The sessions in this series will help you achieve tasks such as these.

Here's a quick description of each session, scroll down for the schedule and to sign-up.

  • SharePoint Administration in 2021 - This session explores how to administer and customise both “old” SharePoint (SharePoint 2016) and SharePoint Online (the storage platform behind Teams), as staff are likely using a combination of the two.

    In this session you will learn how to customise team sites by adding text, images and web parts, how to configure a team's site navigation and how permissions and sharing work.

    The course is relevant to any SharePoint administrator, from small project teams sites or large school or unit site collections or owners of a team.

  • Simple data storage with Microsoft Lists - Microsoft (AKA SharePoint) Lists can be used to store and track data when no other appropriate system exists. This session explores scenarios for using Lists and how to create and manage them.

    Microsoft (AKA SharePoint) Lists can be used to store and track data when no other appropriate system exists. Say you wanted to plan a conference, keep a record of sports equipment loans, or track complaints. If no corporate system can do that, Microsoft Lists comes to the fore.

    This session explores scenarios for using Lists, how to create lists from a template or from scratch and how to manage them.

  • Automating processes with Power Automate - Microsoft Power Automate allows you streamline repetitive actions such as seeking approval, sending emails, tweeting messages, moving files or creating list items.

    This session will explore some of the "flow" templates available and how to customise them with actions and conditions to suit specific situations. No coding is required; Power Automate flows are created in the browser through a fairly intuitive interface.
