After this course the participants are able to use SharePoint sites, consult and share information, work together on shared documents, communicate with each other and synchronize activities, both through a web browser as well as directly from MS Word, MS Excel and MS Outlook.


Classroom training with a strong practical and hands-on approach.


This course is aimed at information workers who (will) actively use SharePoint: consult, upload, add, edit, share and update documents and list data.

During this course, participants get a full and intensive introduction to the functionality of Windows SharePoint.

After a general introduction, we set about learning how to use Lists and Libraries: consult and add information, navigate through the various parts of a site, use Application Parts, manage List data, document management (uploading, Check-in/out, Versioning, Content Approval, Workflows, Document Sets) and communication with other users. Special attention goes to other methods to manage documents and information as well as the use of meta data. This section takes the lion’s share of the day to complete.

The next part is dedicated to the interaction between SharePoint sites and MS Office applications. Through the implementation of SharePoint, applications such as MS Word, MS Excel and MS Outlook offer a clear added value to the user: synchronization of shared documents, exporting of existing lists, keeping a finger on the pulse through Alerts and staying informed through RSS feeds.

The Social Features such as the MySite, Newsfeeds, Community Sites and OneDrive (Pro) are a separate chapter in which we show how an individual user can optimize the interaction with SharePoint and facilitate the communication with colleagues.

Finally, we take a look at the different ways to specifically search information based on content, meta data, author, etc. in SharePoint.
