Course Outline

1. SharePoint Introduction

SharePoint is a collaboration tool at it's heart. It's primary goal is to make it easy for users to find and share information and there are many features built into SharePoint to facilitate this. SharePoint's library system feature can provide a superior alternative to the traditional file server. SharePoint lists can be an easy-to-design and easy-to-use alternative to sharing spreadsheet files or more formal database tables. Both lists and libraries can be customised and extended to provide enhanced appearances and functionality such as calendars and discussion boards to name a couple. All of this collaboration can be done through a browser interface and, in some cases, through integration with Microsoft Office applications.


  • SharePoint Versions
  • Team Site Layout and Navigation


2. SharePoint List Basics

Lists are a fundamental building block in SharePoint that provide a way for users to store and view data. SharePoint comes "out of the box" with many predefined list templates that are easy to use. Lists can be further customised by adding columns to store just about any type of information. Additionally, list columns can be validated as well as linked between lists. Lists are a very flexible and powerful tool in SharePoint.


  • List Templates Creating Lists, List columns, Column Validation


3. Library Basics

SharePoint Libraries share the same characteristics as SharePoint lists such as columns, views and validation to name a few. What distinguishes SharePoint libraries is that each item in a library has an underlying document. Therefore, in addition to the data stored in library columns the document stores its own data based on the type of document. Because of the extra data that can be stored in columns that can be used to filter and search by and because of features such as versioning, libraries are considered a great replacement for the more traditional file server system. Libraries are, like lists, a fundamental building block in a SharePoint site.


  • Library Templates
  • Creating Libraries
  • Managing Documents and Versioning


4. Working with Lists and Library Views

Views provide a flexible system to display SharePoint list and library data in an easy-to-read and easy-to-use manner. Every SharePoint list and library can have multiple views created and configured, and some list and library templates come with special views preconfigured. View can be defined for personal use or shared use.


  • Default Views
  • Custom Views


5. Working with Sites

All SharePoint content is accessed through a site. A SharePoint site is the container for lists and libraries and provides a starting point for basic administration. The content, lists, libraries, and basic look and feel of a site is initially determined by the Site Template used to create the site.


  • Site Templates
  • Creating Sites
  • Site Navigation


6. Page Content

SharePoint offers a couple of ways to add content to the pages in a site. The latest technique and the technique implemented by the Team Site template is through Wiki Style pages. Another method that has been part of SharePoint since the beginning is the use of Web Parts and Web Part pages. Both techniques are similar in the output that can be created and both Web Part pages and Wiki pages support share the ability to add Web Parts to them. Web Part pages sill have one advantage in that you can connect Web Parts so information can pass between them. That option is not available on a wiki page.


  • Wiki Library Pages
  • Web Part Pages
  • Working with Web Parts


7. Forms Library

SharePoint Forms library is a special library designed to store Microsoft InfoPath form documents. Microsoft InfoPath comes with a designer tool for graphically creating forms with a wide assortment of fields and controls. The InfoPath Designer can then be used to publish the forms you design to SharePoint, rendering them as web page templates for Forms libraries.


  • Creating a Forms Library
  • Creating InfoPath Forms
  • Creating InfoPath Forms to SharePoint


8. Site Columns and Content Types

One method of customising SharePoint, in a way that can be reused throughout the site or site collection or even the whole farm, is to create Site Columns and Content Types. Site columns are the simplest element; they are essentially the same as list and library columns except that you create them at the site level and then they can be used throughout that site and any child site. Content Types are a combination of Site Columns as well as additional settings and information such as document templates and workflows.


  • Site Column Gallery
  • Creating Site Columns
  • Site Content Type Gallery


9. Office Integration

One of the nice features of SharePoint is its ability to integrate with Microsoft Office applications. Just about every Office application offers some level of integration with SharePoint whether it be simple, such as importing a spreadsheet to create a new list, or more full features, such as SharePoint Workspace. Some integration features enhance what is available online througha browser, while others allow access to SharePoint content offline such as a mobile computer environment. This lesson will use a series of demonstrations and exercises to show how each Office application can integrate with SharePoint.


  • Excel Integration
  • Outlook Integration
  • Access Integration


10. Managing SharePoint Site Permissions

Permissions on a SharePoint site are assigned when a site is created. The default is that permissions assiged to the root of a site collection are inherited by child sites. At any time, permissions inheritance can be turned off at a site, list, library, or even at the time level in a list or library. The permissions themselves can be assigned to either SharePoint groups, individual users, or groups outside of SharePoint such as Windows groups.


  • SharePoint Groups
  • Assigning Permissions
  • Permission Levels
  • Permissions Inheritance
