1. Let’s get started with modern collaboration! Office 365 Groups are a solution developed with people and collaboration in mind. These Groups are providing a new way for your team to work together and new challenges as an administrator. If you are in Office 365 or moving to it, you will need to learn what Office 365 Groups are and how they fit in into your enterprise. We are going to break down Groups from a technical level and see what experiences you have from an end user to strategies to govern them as an administrator.

  2. To kick things off Mark Kashman, Senior Product Manager at Microsoft, will provide updates from the product team coming out of the SharePoint Conference and will open up the Q&A session. After Mark's Q&A, our local panel will give their reactions to the SharePoint conference which was recently held in Las Vegas. If you weren't able to attend, this is your opportunity to ask a SharePoint product team member and our panel questions around what they heard, what they are excited about and what you should be looking at based on the information provided out of SPC. The panelists are sure to discuss announcements regarding Content Services, PowerApps and Flow, SharePoint Framework, SharePoint 2019, Microsoft Teams, and any other questions you may have.

  3. It’s your turn to shine!!! We always have a great response to real world case studies and this month will feature members of the MNSPUG community sharing their stories on specific use cases. All of those who submitted were asked to talk about the following during their presentation:

    • What was the business need?
    • What options did you have (if any)?
    • Why did you choose this option?
    • How did you implement?
    • Was there any ROI after implementation?

    Here are the members and what they will be presenting:

    Joseph Satre – Carver County
    Modernizing the invoicing and payment tracking system used by Jail Services
    Learn how Carver County utilized SharePoint with external systems to track payments and invoices by connecting CIS and utilizing Business Connectivity Services and Nintex to pull it all together with some light JavaScript development.

    Noah Spannbauer – Minnesota Twins
    Using the SharePoint Framework to develop a central event based visual solution
    Important event information critical to the operation of the business is kept in multiple locations: SharePoint, SQL Server, Excel, Publisher, and Outlook public folders. Executives and Managers have to go to multiple places to locate event information so they can make informed decisions that impact the business, in which they aren’t able to quickly make business critical decision regarding events. By developing a SharePoint Framework client-side web part that leverages PnP JS we were able to retrieve event information using SharePoint Search and displaying the results in a single calendar view using an open-source Full Calendar project.

    Don Donais – Ameriprise Financial
    Using SharePoint to manage SharePoint
    Moving from SharePoint on-premise to SharePoint Online can be a daunting task, even with a small farm. Moving all of the content into a new site architecture needs to have high visibility and tracking throughout the long process. See how we used SharePoint to manage our process of moving to the cloud to ensure no site was left behind, unless we wanted it to.
