In this session, we are going to explore the configuration needed to use cross-site publishing. We will then configure the sites needed to quickly configure and implement cross-site publishing, by creating a content portal that author’s will use to manage content, and a separate publishing site collection that displays the content in the Search Query Web Part.

PWR302 - The Peter Pan complex: Determining when a SharePoint site should grow into a hub site

Sarah Haase  MVP, MLIS
  

SharePoint hub sites enable us to create a shared experience for a group of related SharePoint sites, including: common navigation, unified branding, aggregated news displays, and multi-site search. But how do you determine which sites should be hubs? And how do you manage the fulfillment of hub site requests?

As SharePoint site owners are educated about the capabilities of hub sites, demand for new hubs will increase. This session outlines key business criteria you'll want to consider as you start leveraging hub sites.

You'll learn:
• What hub sites are and how hubs can be leveraged
• How to determine when a hub site is needed (e.g. should every department have a hub site? What are the criteria for leveraging a hub site?)
• How to build an organizational strategy for usage and governance of hub sites
• Practical ideas for managing the provisioning of hub sites

PWR303 - From SharePoint to PowerApps: Evolution of the 'Intake Form’ Solution

Wes Preston  MVP
  

SharePoint and O365 power users solve business problems by combining out of the box SharePoint lists, libraries, and components into multi-page solutions.

The introduction of PowerApps and Flow changes how power users build solutions to accommodate:
• Users need to submit a request, manage or have visibility to their requests, and access archived requests
• Folks managing requests need visibility to new requests, the ability to review or triage them, and then assign requests to the appropriate resources
• Folks responding to requests need to have visibility to what is assigned to them, need to see request details in order to respond to the request, and close requests.
• Management needs to see an overview of what’s being requested and how effective their team is at working the requests.

By replacing SharePoint forms and augmenting, or outright replacing, legacy approaches. Walk through a simple intake request list example and see how PowerApps brings new features, capabilities, and accessibility to these solutions.

PWR304 - Business Process Automation with PowerApps and Flow

William Huneycutt  MVP, MCT
  

In 2016, Microsoft introduced two new tools for Office 365: PowerApps and Flow. PowerApps is designed for power users everywhere to connect, create and share business data with your team on any device in minutes. Flow is designed to create automated workflows between your applications and services, such as SharePoint, to get notifications, synchronize files and collect data. 

In this session, users will learn how to get started quickly with the PowerApps to create apps with an Microsoft Office-like experience. Users will discover how to use built-in connections to connect PowerApps to services such as SharePoint, Office 365, and OneDrive, and even on-premises systems such as SharePoint. Users will also learn how to share PowerApps with coworkers to take advantage of an app you created. 

This session will also discuss how to get started with Microsoft Flow. Users will learn how to take advantage of pre-built templates for creating workflows. Users will also learn how to create their own flows in an easy visual designer that works anywhere on the web. Finally, we'll discuss how to manage your Flows during and after runtime.

The future of SharePoint is exciting, and the addition of PowerApps and Flow can help to address the myriad of business processes faced by today’s business teams.
