Our Newest Class – Mission: Automation – SharePoint Workflow and InfoPath
by Ricky Spears
For the past year, students have been telling me they wanted more information on how to use Workflow Designer in SharePoint Designer to write workflows to automate their business processes. I hear this after they use the out-of-the-box workflows in our MOSS Core Features class. When I wrote the MOSS Advanced Features class, I included an entire module dedicated to SharePoint Designer Workflows and InfoPath. Students continue to tell me that was great, but they still want more about workflows and InfoPath.
I'm excited to announce our newest class – Mission: Automation – SharePoint Workflow and InfoPath. For three exciting days, students will dig into InfoPath, Forms Services, and SharePoint Designer workflows.
On day one, you'll focus on learning the basics of InfoPath, Forms Services, and Workflow Designer in SharePoint Designer. On day two, you'll continue to build on those skills while you learn how to interact with external data, convert existing Word and Excel forms to InfoPath forms, work with digital signatures, and explore e-mail enabled forms in InfoPath and e-mail enabled lists in SharePoint. On the last day, you will continue to expand your knowledge by learning how to send your InfoPath form data to a database, how to work with forms on a mobile device, and how to work with an InfoPath form that contains code. Whew! I told you it was exciting!
If you want to make SharePoint far more than just a place to store information, this is the class for you. Register today! The class is geared towards Information Workers who want to learn how to use SharePoint to automate common business processes, Power Users, Enterprise Planners and Teams, Webmasters, Application Designers, Systems Analysts, Help-desk and end-user support professionals, Trainers, and IT Pros and Developers who are primarily interested in out-of-the-box functionality and features. Note: this course does not teach workflow development using Visual Studio and .NET.
