We had a great time at the SharePoint Conference North American last week in Las Vegas. I had the great pleasure of hosting a panel discussion with Microsoft MVPs: Sue Hanley, Ruven Gotz and Marc Anderson.
The panel discussed why profiles are the center of the digital workplace for organizations. Each of the speakers spoke in context of the consultancy work they do in the real world.
Catch up on Sue, Marc, Ruven and my session, as we discuss:
- What is available out of the box in SharePoint and Office 365 for finding people.
- See how you can improve the people search experience in a few simple steps.
- Get a walk-through on how to build your own employee directory in SharePoint or Office 365.
