And now, for this months topic:Content is King - Enterprise Content Management in SharePoint 2010

solutions, starting with classic authoring, versioning and approvals.
From there, we'll move through real world best practices on metadata and
content types, rules based content organizers, records management and
eDiscovery, and Information Lifecycle Management. We'll conclude by
diving into web content management and Microsoft's reference

|Architect: Search and Enterprise Content Management - Find your content now!||7/7/2012 5:08 PM|
Ivan Sanders presents Search and ECM:
How many of you have copied contents from File Shares only to find that you can still not find anything just not find it faster? I will show with a few simple steps how to implement automatic tagging or in place tagging so you don’t have to wait for your next migration or force management to use s spreadsheet to identify every document by using Boolean search not just synonyms as part of your Term Set. If you choose to only use the Enterprise Keyword Settings on every document library I will give you a script to enable this feature on every document library. If you choose to use your own site columns I will provide a script that will make your Content Type the primary and apply it to every document library, then show how to modify the search result refiners so that you can drill through your search results. You don’t have to wait to make search work today.
|SharePoint Administration: Best Practices & Tips from the Field||6/4/2012 6:53 PM|
For our June 13th SharePoint Users Group, we'll present "SharePoint Administration: Best Practices & Tips from the Field" by Nedra Allmond and Wahid Saleemi.
This session is similar to what was presented at SharePoint Satuday Los Angeles 2012. However, we'll speed through the slides and get to some demos in a live environment.
In this session, attendees will learn to sift through the clutter of ULS logs, Event Logs, SharePoint Health Analyzer and focus on the most common areas that affect users. In the session, we’ll give attendees some free tools, scripts, and ideas on how to automate the maintenance of their SharePoint Farm.
The job of a SharePoint Administrator is one of the most demanding. Your responsibilities often include infrastructure (servers), operations, optimizations, user training, even development. That, in addition to the day to day user support/helpdesk.
We’ll talk about how best to handle all of that. We explore some best practices and tips we've learned from managing SharePoint in different organizations. Whether you have a large budget (anyone?) or no budget, we’ll propose solutions to help make you a more efficient administrator.
Make sure to RSVP for our next event!
