Components for SharePoint 2010 can be easily produced with SharePoint Designer 2010. In a video curriculum that covers the functional no-code fundamentals of SharePoint Designer 2010, authored by Asif Rehmani, we present an overview of building components for SharePoint 2010 with SharePoint Designer 2010. This entire curriculum can be accessed either through:
- an unlimited annual subscription for a single user to all of the SharePoint-Videos instructional content on our web site, or
- one of our SharePoint-Videos dot com “people” subscription plans which provide unlimited access to all of the content on our website, on an annual basis, for a group of users at the same organization, or
- a hybrid subscription offer that provides a combination of local and remote access, as appropriate, for a range of users at an organization or,
- finally, through the purchase of either an individual use or enterprise use license to a hard copy DVD that includes all of our content on SharePoint Designer 2010
Our instructor summarizes for us that it is “faster, easier and more effective” to create components for SharePoint 2010 with SharePoint Designer 2010 than any other method. In a short 7 minute video tutorial, “Easily Create SharePoint 2010 Components with SharePoint Designer 2010,” Asif Rehmani demonstrates how easy it is to create sites, lists and pages that users will find beneficial with this tool. We tour the Back Stage of SharePoint Designer 2010’s user interface, where all of the different types of components can be created. Our instructor accesses the Subsite component, selects a theme from the template gallery and, with a single click, creates a sub site for our example.
With one click a list is added from the set of components included with the theme template selected for the subsite. From the ribbon a type of SharePoint list is selected. With two or three subsequent clicks of the mouse the list is custom configured for the purpose of our subsite example. Finally, a web part page is added once again, simply with one or two mouse clicks.
An example of editing a page from the SharePoint Designer 2010 interface affords our instructor an opportunity to prescribe that operations such as an edit ought to be performed with SharePoint Designer 2010 in “Normal Mode” rather than in “Advanced Mode” to ensure that other areas of the site are properly insulated from any possible mistakes that might create serious damage to the site. This type of caveat is indicative of the high quality of our video tutorials, which clearly delineate user understanding of the range of possibilities of working with SharePoint 2010 components with this software.
