The continuum of solutions with Microsoft Lists and the Power Platform
No-code and low-code solutions are essential productivity boosters in Microsoft 365. Microsoft Lists provides a no-code approach using templates, conditional formatting, rules, views and more. Additional tools from the Power Platform - Power Apps and Power Automate - provide additional low-code capabilities to customize forms and flows. Start a list and expand from there to make your unique app work for you and your team.

Using Power Apps to transform your SharePoint Forms
SharePoint forms are ok, they give you the basic interface to be able to create, edit and view data, but they are extremely limited. Power Apps to the rescue! With the constantly improving relationship between SharePoint and Power Apps, we can transform our list forms into something much more functional and graphically rich.
In this session we will look at how we can use Power Apps to take our forms to the next level, looking at some of the capabilities, shortfalls and little gotchas that you need to be aware of.

Building no-code chatbots for Microsoft Teams
Chatbots are a good solution for employees to find answers to their questions, help them onboard, participate in processes and much more! We used to think that building a bot requires development. With Virtual Agent this is not true anymore! If you want to learn more how to create a chatbot without a single line of code and give it to Teams users, join this session!
You will learn:
* What is Power Virtual Agent
* How you can build your own chatbot
* How you can integrate that chatbot with other sources using Power Automate
* How you can embed chatbot in Microsoft Teams
Well designed and operating chatbots can save you hours on solving simple employees' problems and answering the most common answers.
Caching and SharePoint: What Works, What No Longer Works, and Where We Are Today
Caching is a critical variable in the SharePoint scalability and performance equation, but it’s one that is oftentimes misunderstood or dismissed as being needed only for large scale/large site scenarios. In this lively and fast-paced session, we’ll build an understanding of the caching options that exist within the SharePoint platform: object caching, BLOB caching, page output caching, and SharePoint’s Distributed Cache service. We’ll examine each option, discuss how it works, identify how it can be controlled, and cover common pitfalls that may impact its use. We’ll also clarify if and how each option works (or doesn’t) in SharePoint Online and the important implications that are carried. Those who attend this session will leave with the knowledge needed to understand and make the use of caching in their own SharePoint environments, whether those environments are on-premises or online.

For the hundreds of children and families that are supported by CHSW we are a literal lifeline offering respite, symptom control and sadly end of life care. Office 365 applications were rapidly deployed to support our doctors and nurses communicate, collaborate and support children, so we can continue to make the most of short and precious lives.

Protecting Microsoft Teams from Cyber Security Threats - a Practical Guide
While Microsoft Teams adoption is growing incredibly fast with over 80 million active daily users in 2020, some highly regulated organizations are often hesitant to deploy Teams or limit the deployment of Teams due to information security concerns and possible cyber security threats. Supporting any platform with that many daily users you can be sure that hackers are watching closely and will do everything they can to gain a foothold in your environment.
During this presentation we will cover real-world attacks and cyber security threats as well as details for hardening your security configurations to protect your Teams deployment. We'll also cover the available Microsoft add-on solutions to improve security, including Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), increased logging options, and Azure AD P1 licenses that improve Teams governance capabilities. Some of the topics we'll discuss:
- Credential theft campaigns
- Identity spoofing for user impersonation
- Man-in-the-middle attacks
- Locking down 3rd party application implementations
- Conditional access policies
- Permission management settings
- Information boundary configurations
- And more…

Migrating On-Premises and Cloud contents to SharePoint Online at no cost with Microsoft Migration Tools
Migrating On-Premises and Cloud contents to SharePoint Online (SPO) and OneDrive For Business (ODFBN) is a process that should not be manually done, but automatically using a migration tool. Until the debut of the SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT), Microsoft didn’t provide a migration tool to move On-Premises and Cloud Contents to both SPO and ODFB. But now in 2020, we have a complete offering of free migration tools (SPMT, Migration Manager and Mover) that can be used to migrate contents to SPO and ODFB at no cost. In this session we will take a look at each of the Microsoft Migration Tool in terms of the features provided and when we should use each one.

Go with the Flow for Your Custom Global Navigation
Do your business owners need to update custom navigation links? Does your custom navigation control break every time someone edits the links?
In this session we will walk through a real life scenario for using a multi-level SPFx custom mega menu. We will create a dynamic way for non-technical business users to create and edit navigation items. Next, we will use PowerAutomate to pull it all together connecting the dynamically generated data to the mega menu.
You have the best of both worlds - an easy to read and performant data structure with an easy way for business users to edit the navigation elements. Remove yourself as the roadblock to update the navigation and help end users help themselves.
Cosmos DB: An Azure Odyssey
In the vast IT Universe, there are two dominant types of particles: the SQL electron and the NoSQL positron. Everyone has seen SQL, but not many have seen NoSQL, or even understand it.
Spark your imagination in an IT Universe where replication works at a magical quantum level, and .Net planets coexist with Cosmos DB star clusters.
Disclaimer: Mixing SQL electrons with NoSQL positrons may lead to the destruction of the known universe. Doing it right however, you can create the brightest supernovas!
Cool & Exciting Ways to Use Forms to Engage Users
Many believe the new Microsoft Forms is the replacement for InfoPath and other form tools. However, that could not be further from the truth and I am so glad that it is. The new Microsoft Forms can increase user engagement by creating a fun and easy way to get users to provide information and learn about their company. Forms is not only the new survey replacement but it has an additional type of form called Quiz, yes I said Quiz!!! Excited yet? I know I am, as many individuals will take a quiz or fill out a survey if there is a competition involved and\or some type of reward. Forms brings all of that to the table and more!
Forms has created an engaging results overview and an option to post the results of your quizzes. Who doesn’t like to see their name at the top of a scoreboard? If you’re an organization that has external consultants, partners, clients, etc. well no fear as you can set surveys & quizzes to be internal only or allow for external users to participate. Just think of ALL the possibilities! Come join this session and let’s explore the many ways Microsoft Forms can help improve user engagement throughout your entire organization and who doesn’t love easy User Adoption methods!!

M365 Governance Automation at scale
As the adoption of Microsoft 365 / Office 365 continues to rise, it becomes increasingly difficult for you to manage the rapid growth of your services like Teams, SharePoint, Power Platform etc. In the end, you give up, facing the inevitable sprawl of inactive teams channels, unused accounts for external users, and unknown publicly shared content.
However, it doesn't need to be like that. There is a way to scale M365 governance effectively and stay in control.
In this session we'll share lessons learned from the field as well as many good practices to help manage and govern your Micrsoft 365 tenant on a large scale without compromising on features or usability.
The art of information architecture in Office 365
Too many organisations jump straight into Teams and Microsoft 365 without considering how they want technology to transform their processes. Few consider they'll have the platform for the foreseeable future. This session will range across process vision setting, search, information lifecycles and continuous improvement - and what you need in the IA to support it.
