About This Class

In this class, we will do an overview, and then jump right into some examples of custom business solutions in SharePoint. Then we will go over the requirements gathering process, and the most common requirements, as well as how to start planning before building the solution. We discuss common components that are involved in an automated business solution, and what functionality is typically expected from the business. This is important to understand in going through the process of translating expectations and requirements into a fully-baked SharePoint solution.  After taking this class, you will be ready to start building solutions with whatever products you choose, such as PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, or even good old SharePoint Designer or other 3rd party tools.
