    As a site owner, you will be presented with a selection of site templates. You will use a variety of popular site templates to develop an enhanced understanding of each sites function and appropriate use.

In most site templates, creating and managing web pages is a simple, fast, and rewarding way to present essential information and apps. Also covered are SharePoint spaces, a type of page that supports Virtual Reality.

    SharePoint can also be used as an Intranet for internal news. Due to the high visibility of these websites, it is common to place more control over the release of new web pages or updates to existing pages. For this reason, SharePoint has publishing sites and communication sites.

    SharePoint lists serve as the structure for calendars, discussion boards, contacts, and tasks. This module explains the concept of lists and then reviews popular options.

    A document library is a location on a site where you can create, collect, update, and share files including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF. We will show you the benefits of using a library and teach you how best to work with files in a library.

  • Businesses depend on business processes. SharePoint gives users the ability to automate some of those business processes using workflows. Workflows allow you to track items within a list or library, distribute tasks to obtain approval or feedback on an item, or to determine whether an item should be deleted or retained, or to request digital signatures within Microsoft Office files.

    This module introduces you to workflows ‑ what they are and how they can be used in a business environment. You will learn the types of workflows which are available in a standard SharePoint Server SE implementation, and how to deploy them to lists, libraries and content types. In addition, you will learn how to monitor workflows once they have been started and check the history of current or completed workflows.

    When working with business processes, often digital forms, rather than documents are used to capture information. We will look at options for customising the way data is captured through list forms to ensure it carries the same business logic as the workflow.

As a site owner, you can customise permission levels. This means that you can create levels of access that are aligned with the responsibilities of your site’s users. An example of this would be allowing a group of users the ability to upload content but not delete content. Additionally, we will focus on locking down or opening areas within your site to make it more tailored for your needs. You will also see how to use the Share button to quickly share documents with other users.

In this module, we will help your team establish reusable file templates and automate document lifecycle management.

    I was sceptical at first whether to enrol with Microtek Learning or not, however, I am glad that I did- I got everything that was promised (maybe more). The trainer was very patient and knowledgeable and with his effort and mine, I was able to clear the exam with ease! Keep up the good work everyone.

    I was recommended the ITIL 4 Foundation course by an IT professional who had completed the same course at Microtek Learning. The training gave me a thorough understanding of service management that I felt I could take back to my job as an IT Project Management and apply it to improve the value of products and services.
