Stacy Deere-Strole - Taking User Profiles to New Heights
Please join Jim and Julie at the Microsoft Store in Salem, NH for pizza (provided by Alexander Technology Group ( and conversation. Online presentation link: Topic: Taking User Profiles to New Heights 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 • Search • Social • Building Moral & Bonding • Get to know your Company Presenter: Stacy Deere-Strole (MVP) is the Owner of Focal Point Solutions LLC, a Cincinnati, OH based company that provides SharePoint Solutions for the Enterprise in the mid-to-large market.
