MPUG Essentials Certificate Series: Managing Projects with SharePoint
In this 3-day members-only essentials course, BrightWork CEO Éamonn McGuinness will present, explain, and demonstrate which pieces of SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 will help you with project and everyday work management.
Microsoft SharePoint 2010 has been in market for over 3 years with over 120 million users. The Microsoft SharePoint 2010 release included a new task list that synchronizes with Microsoft Project, extending the capabilities of both SharePoint and Project to manage work and projects. Then in January 2013 Microsoft formally released SharePoint 2013. In this latest release there are an amazing amount of slick new features. It’s clear the Microsoft SharePoint team are really encouraging us to use SharePoint to collaboratively manage projects. In this essentials course we will present, explain and demonstrate which pieces of SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 will help you with project and everyday work management.
