SharePoint Fest Chicago 2018

Reading Time: 2 minutes


I’m excited to announce I’ll be heading to Chicago as a speaker for the SharePoint Fest conference from December 3-7, 2018.

If you have a couple of minutes to spare, check out my video where I talk about my sessions at the conference!

I’ll be delivering a half-day workshop on my own:

WRK503 – From metadata to retention & disposal: what you need to know about Content Services in Office 365

When: December 4, 9:00AM to 12:30PM

Synopsis: The modern workplace has changed and the way we manage information needs to change along with it. Join Joanne Klein on this half day workshop as she talks about the move from traditional Enterprise Content Management to Content Services to manage your content. She’ll work thru some practical examples of using Office 365 features to manage your content from creation thru to archival and disposal.

And a second half-day workshop with Susan Hanley:

WRK603 – SharePoint Information Architecture and Content Services Hands On and Unplugged

When: December 4, 1:30PM to 5:00PM

Synopsis:  Join Susan Hanley and Joanne Klein in this hands-on lab where concepts learned from Sue’s Information Architecture and Joanne’s Content Services sessions will come together and be brought to life. Bring your laptop and a site you create in your own Office 365 tenant and you’ll get an opportunity to work through an end-to-end example of designing and building a Communication Site that leverages Content Types and Columns to practice the best practices you learned in the Information Architecture and Content Services workshops. Note: a laptop and an Office 365 tenant where you can create a Communication Site are required for this workshop.

In addition to the two workshops, I’m also delivering 2 sessions:

CM204 – Build a Modern Office 365 Adoption Center

When: December 6 from 4:20PM to 5:30PM

Synopsis: Similar to her Microsoft Tech Community blog post and done with real customers, Joanne will show how to build an Adoption Center on a modern SharePoint Communication site from end-to-end using no code. This session will cover the underlying information architecture and how to leverage it to build and organize tagged modern pages. Bonus: You can use this same technique to tag and organize pages for many use-cases in your SharePoint environment.

ADM104 – Taking a “Crawl, Walk, Run” approach to Office 365 Retention

When: December 5 from 3:00PM to 4:10PM

Synopsis: This session will cover the new retention options in Office 365 including retention labels and retention policies and discuss the “crawl, walk, run” approach for implementing them. This session will walk thru specific examples of how to do this and what each step means from both an administrator and end-user perspective. Session is based on experience from a real world use-case.
