One reason to write a book was to book (pun intended) speaking engagements to travel to exotic locales (like Chicago) and spread the word about my consulting and SharePoint development. It’s happening! I’ve been invited to present for VisualSP later in February, and last night I did a talk for the amazing Vancouver Office 365 Users Group.
In discussion with event organizers, I suggested speaking on project management, governance, user engagement and practical tools. In both cases the organizers selected a “practical tools presentation” gleaned from Part 2 of the SharePoint in Practice book. So I’ve developed how-to videos for several of the most popular tools, including step-by-step video instructions and a supporting handout with complete specifications. I will share these with you here.
Today’s offering is a simple leave calendar, enabling your SharePoint users to view who’s away, post planned leave, and get manager approval.
I suggest you download the hand-out to follow along with the video and refer to the details.
Here’s the video:
I hope this is useful to you! If you have successes, or questions or ideas, please let me know in the comments below.
