This session introduces Business Users to SharePoint 2013 Workflow using SharePoint Designer (SPD). You'll be able to review terminology, learn what's new in 2013, what has been removed that was available in 2010, and how you can still run your SPD 2010 workflows in 2013.

This session won't cover how the backend works, but will focus on all the cool new stuff you can do once Workflow is up and running in your 2013 environment. It will also review some examples of workflows and when you should choose between 2010 or 2013 workflows. Whether you're a power user looking to solve a problem by creating a workflow, or an end user that is working with someone who is creating your workflow on your behalf, this session will give you the knowledge and terminology to know where to begin.

You will learn:

  • What's new in 2013 SPD Workflow
  • What's been deprecated from 2010 workflow
  • How to use 2010 workflow functions that have been deprecated
