Morning Workshop 9:00 am – 12:30 pm, Wednesday – WS 502 – Automate your business processes with tools from today and tomorrow
One of the big advantages of implementing SharePoint in the enterprise is process automation. By using Out of the box workflows as well as easy to create custom SharePoint Designer Workflows, Power Users are able to automate processes, avoid repetitive tasks, and boost team productivity. Furthermore, new tools such as Flow which are exclusive to Office 365 at the moment allow you to easily create workflows, and integrate SharePoint Online with other systems.
In this half-day workshop, you will learn how to use SharePoint Designer and Flow to create workflows that solve real problems and to automate your business processes in SharePoint On-Premises and SharePoint Online.
OFF 105 – Getting Started with PowerShell for Office 365
Take your Office 365 Administrator skills to the next level by learning to manage Office 365 and automate repetitive tasks using the magic of PowerShell.
In this session, you will learn how to use PowerShell for Office 365!
ADM 205 – Integrating SharePoint and Office Online Server
Office Online Server (formerly known as Office Web Apps) allows your users to view and edit Office Documents directly in the browser, without having to download them locally as well as enables the Durable Links functionality with SharePoint Server 2016. Lastly, since Excel Services is not part of SharePoint 2016 anymore, Office Online Server is mandatory in order to enable Business Intelligence features in SharePoint Server 2016.
In this session, we will look more in detail at what Office Online Server is, best practices on how to install it and how to design an Office Online Server Farm. We will also learn how to properly integrate it with SharePoint Server 2016, and lastly, what features it can bring to other Office Servers products such as Exchange and Skype for Business.
