Slides from Week3 Session–Who? What? Where? Searching in SharePoint

Thank you all who attended my Week3 webinar today! I always enjoy chances to speak, and enjoy being involved in Week3. Generally my sessions are more technical than not, and Week3 gives me a great chance to bring it down to the business user level.

As promised – here are the slides from my session today. Please leave me feedback letting me know how you thought it went, and if you have any questions!

Be sure to catch other Week3 webinars in the coming months – lots of good content from great speakers. Within the next couple of days, a recording of today’s webinar will be available here:


Speaking at Week3–Collaboration Technology Interest Group on September 21st, 2011


One of the groups I help out with has been Week3. And while I have helped in the planning and marketing of it for some time, I have yet to speak for one of its online sessions. This is changing next month, I will be presenting a session on search. See below for more information on Week3, as well as the session, and I hope you can make it! (it’s free, and online!)


Who? What? Where? – Searching in SharePoint

This session will cover the importance of search in a SharePoint environment, as well has how to make use of it from the end user, site collection administrator level. We will not discuss search architecture, or managing search in Central Administration. This session will focus on finding information, as well as making information findable.

When: September 21st, 2011 – 11AM EST



What is Week3?

We are an online interest group designed to provide a platform of discussion and learning around how collaboration technologies can optimize business productivity. Our focus is on ROI, not code.

Week3’s mission is to create an open, unbiased community of business professionals, dedicated to the growth and development of collaboration techniques, using technologies such as Microsoft SharePoint (2010, MOSS, WSS) as a means to improving organizational productivity.

What’s that? You missed a Week3 Presentation??

Please, have no fear. In fact, instead of sitting on the couch, attempting to overcome your Turkey, Turducken (I could be so lucky…) or Tofurkey coma on Friday and over the weekend, it may be a good time to pick out the bits of cranberry sauce from your keyboard, and head on over to, and catch some recorded webinars from Week3, specifically, at this page here:


What is Week3? (Hint: it takes place on the 3rd week of the month…)

Week3 hosts webinar sessions on various relevant topics, using real-world information and case studies, during the third week of the month. We are sponsored by a team of companies that are dedicated to giving back to the collaborative community.

  • Monthly sessions are not “infomercials” or product promotions in disguise.
  • Our goal is to maintain a business focus around collaboration technologies.
  • We provide grounded, real-world information and case studies.

We encourage your suggestions and ideas to make sure Week3 sessions meet your need for balanced collaboration technology information.

There is some excellent content up there, that is not all developer or administrator focused, there is a high amount of business user content up there as well.

With that, be sure to sign up for the January Week3 event (we’re taking December off), where Grace-Hunt’s own Charlie Delong and Mike Davenport will be presenting: What is SharePoint 2010 and how can it help my Organization?

Currently there is a lot of buzz around SharePoint 2010 and all the great things it can do to help your Organization.  Join us and see real world examples of how SharePoint can enhance business process, streamline communications, and increase collaboration within your teams.  Through the context of these examples you will also be introduced some of the new features and functionality of SharePoint 2010.  If you can identify a particular pain point within your organization you will have a compelling argument to initiate a SharePoint project to improve your Organization.  These real world examples will help focus your project and send you down the path of  a successful deployment.  Your competitors are doing it why shouldn’t you?
