Description

This content packed approximately half an hour course helps the SharePoint admins be able to bridge the custom dev gap by creating a custom solution using out of the box (OOTB) features WITHOUT having to custom code anything, all from the UI, at a very high-level. The SharePoint admin is in this course guided in the most simplistic way on how to create a custom search page with refiners, in order to meet an enterprise business requirement like one that needs the organisation's taxonomy and metadata incorporated into a search page.

The course has a build-up approach, 100% packed with video demos, yet step by step guided.

As SharePoint Search is a large topic in its own sense, this course will open doors to those administrators that want to some day maybe become Search experts, as it explores a rarely seen side of the SharePoint search engine, and hugely affords the admins to speak the search language.

Who is the target audience?
  • SharePoint Farm Administrators
  • SharePoint Site Collection Administrators
  • Any SharePoint Search enthusiast
  • Anyone interested in seeing how the SharePoint Search backend works
