The SharePoint Shepherd's Guide

 for End Users: 2013

The Ultimate Online Guide for SharePoint 2013

Enterprise Wide Toolkit to Accomplish More

The SharePoint Shepherd’s Guide for End Users: 2013 is an essential tool to enable your organization to maximize the value of SharePoint and build exciting functionality.  It includes more than 120 easy-to-follow lessons with clear directions, tested advice, and tips proven to help end users. The SharePoint Shepherd’s Guide for End Users: 2013 expands upon the features of prior versions of SharePoint and will enable users to take advantage of all that Microsoft’s newest version has to offer.

Do your users ask questions like these:

  • If I only have to do this process twice a year, how am I going to find this again?

  • How do I know which type of site is the right one to choose?
  • Is there a simpler way to upload items?
  • Can I share documents with my team members who work remotely?
  • How can I get this information from SharePoint into an email?
  • Should I create a page or a site?

Utilizing the search functionality inherent in SharePoint, your users will find the SharePoint help they need simply by knowing what they want to get done. Users receive step-by-step lessons via on-demand video screen casts and detailed written instructions. Each screencast is only a few minutes. In total there are over 3 hours of screen casts. With step-by-step guidance for the tasks users do most, they’ll never have to worry about remembering how to create a list, add a field, add a user to a group, or many other SharePoint tasks. The video files are delivered in formats that play on the machines in your organization.

The corporation license includes these features:

Printable PDF – We know that some users want a traditional manual for reference. Give your users the content in book format including full color screen shots with a printable PDF. This feature gets you a single PDF file with all of the content from the book.

Word Files - In addition to delivering the printable PDF version, the Word files allow you to modify the printable content for your internal use. You can add your own screen shots to make the printable Guide look and feel like it was designed specifically for your organization. Each of the tasks in the 2013 Guide is delivered as an individual file.

Wiki - Makes the book a living part of the conversation with your users. Allow users to comment on what they're struggling with, add their own tips, and suggest or write new content with the Wiki edition of The SharePoint Shepherd's Guide for End Users: 2013. In addition to the word files, and the printable PDF, you get a client installer application that you install on a workstation and can then upload the contents of the Guide to your local SharePoint server or to Office 365.
