Title: Building a Knowledgebase With Web Part Connections
Description: You may be a fan of wikis, but they may not be the best tool for a knowledgebase. Wikis lack consistency from categories to formatting to navigation. They also do not give you standard list-based functions such as filters and views.
Come learn how to build a knowledgebase with custom lists and libraries and connect them together on one page – all from the browser. No need to click through links to find out content doesn’t exist! Give your customers search AND great navigation all at once!
In this session, we will:
1. Review common aggravations.
2. See a sample of a custom knowledgebase.
3. Build the custom lists and libraries.
4. Build the web page and connect the web parts.
Erin Glenn is a passionate SharePoint Business Solutions Architect. In the early 2000's, she asked her software development manager how she could get into "web stuff" when she didn't want to write code and is certainly not a graphic designer. Little did she know that SharePoint was that "web stuff" she wanted to do!
She has been working with SharePoint since 2005 (SPS2003) for several Richmond, Virginia organizations which include two large Virginia law firms (Hunton & Williams and McGuireWoods), an IT consulting company, and the Virginia Housing Development Authority. Today, she is the SharePoint Administrator for Goodwill of Central Virginia. She has also co-lead the Richmond SharePoint User Group since 2009 and is currently the group’s president.
She is passionate about the end user, focusing on not over complicating solutions, such as providing a phased approach. She also focuses on just in time training - giving them just enough information to perform their actions. She wants them to get comfortable doing five steps first. Then, she will show them five more. She performs her own requirements gathering/business analysis sessions and builds the solutions herself with out-of-the-box tools, including browser-based, SharePoint Designer, and some third-party applications. She also creates her own user documentation and facilitates training.
