SharePoint Saturday Boston is scheduled to take place next weekend Saturday September 10, 2016. SharePoint administrators, end users, architects, developers, and other professionals that work with Microsoft SharePoint Technologies will gather for the 9th SPS Boston event at the Microsoft Office located at 1 Cambridge Center, Cambridge, MA 02142.
Stacy Deere-Strole will be speaking all about User Profiles and their benefits. Stacy has given this presentation numerous times as it is very popular with attendees and has great take-aways. Administrators can immediately start implementing what they have learned into their SharePoint environments upon returning to work.
How many of you know what User Profiles can do? When I typically ask that question I get responses such as: It connects to Active Directory so that properties can be synced into SharePoint so we can use that info (but not sure how), or the most popular, we can add pictures to our profile and other information that others can see. Both of those answers are true but only scratch the surface of what User Profiles can do in SharePoint and most importantly for your organization. I could talk for hours about all the great things that User Profiles can do, but, in addition to talking about it I’m going to show you all the things that a User Profile can do and how the functionality can improve meeting preparation, company bonding and getting to know more about the organization you work for. I won’t stop there either as we will also venture down the path of application integration and how it can streamline processes and limit human error in day to day processes. With the user of User Profiles you can be on your way to building that one stop shop for company information.
Areas that will be covered in this session:
• Deep Dive into a Profile
• Custom User Properties
• Active Directory Integration
• Building Moral & Bonding
• Get to know your Company
