  • The following materials are included with your kit:Clinic Handbook A succinct classroom learning guide that provides all the critical technical information in a crisp, tightly-focused format, which is just right for an effective in-class learning experience.
  • Total time for this module: 35 minutes
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes Note that you must use PowerShell to manage routing rules and throttling rules.
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes Office Web Applications and SharePoint apps are covered in more detail later in this lesson. The search service is covered in the next module. 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 3 minutesConsider briefly showing how document libraries and lists are displayed as apps in the SharePoint site user interface. Explain that this is to provide users with consistent terminology and user experience—libraries and lists work in exactly the same way as in previous versions of SharePoint; they are not packaged in the same way as the apps you download from the Office Marketplace. 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesExplain that running sites in SharePoint 2010 mode is not like the Visual Upgrade feature in SharePoint 2010. Components such as site definitions, site templates, control templates, features, and web parts can all run in a genuine SharePoint 2010 mode until the site is upgraded. 
  • Timing guide: 10 minutesWeb application authentication options are covered in the next lesson. 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesMention that classic authentication mode will be removed in a future release, so Microsoft recommends moving to claims. SharePoint 2013 includes a PowerShellcmdlet (Convert-SPWebApplication) that you can use to convert a Windows classic authentication web application to a Windows claims authentication web application.As an aside, the Distributed Cache service relies on AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server. Without the distributed cache, if a user was redirected to a different WFE server they would need to re-authenticate—hence the need for sticky sessions.
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes  
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes  
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes  
  • Total time for this module: 30 minutes 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 1 minuteYou will demonstrate adding an OData connection at the end of this lesson, so there's no need to go into more detail here. 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute  Remind participants that SharePoint 2010 used a simple request/response model to get changes from an external system. In other words, the user would need to refresh the list or view to see whether anything had changed. 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute  
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesThe slide is designed to emphasize the relationship between app-scoped BDC models and the farm-scoped BDC connections on which they rely. An app-scoped BDC model can be associated with only one SharePoint app. A farm-scoped BDC connection defines connection details, such as endpoint URLs and authentication information, for a specific external system instance. A BDC connection can be used by multiple BDC models. 
  • Timing guide: 10 minutes 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 3 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesEmphasize that the continuous crawl option described in the previous topic will improve index freshness and therefore relevance. Note that Promoted Results were called Best Bets in previous versions. 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Total time for this module: 25 minutes 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesThe slide image shows an example of how you might use workflow stages. A helpdesk process could be modeled as a series of stages – opened, assigned, resolved, confirmed, closed. At each stage, you run a collection of conditions and actions. Transitions allow you to move freely between stages. For example, at the Confirmed stage, if the customer reports that the problem is not resolved, the workflow will return to the Assigned stage. 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 10 minutes To perform this demonstration you will need a configured SharePoint 2013 environment that contains a list or document library with which you can associate a workflow. You will also need an installation of SharePoint Designer 2013 and Visio 2013, either on the SharePoint 2013 server or on a computer that can access the SharePoint 2013 server. 
  • Total time for this module: 30 minutes 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesNote that you can also use folders to structure the default content within a document set. 
  • Timing guide: 1 minuteNote that using managed metadata for navigation is covered in far more detail in Module 6. 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 10 minutesTo perform this demonstration you will need a SharePoint 2013 installation with at least one web application provisioned. You will also need to connect your SharePoint 2013 installation to an Office Web Applications installation. 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesNote that eDiscovery tools are covered in the next topic. Preservations are defined and applied from a Discovery Center site. 
  • Timing guide: 3 minutes 
  • Total time for this module: 30 minutes 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesNote that you will demonstrate the new My Sites functionality at the end of this lesson. 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 12 minutesTo run this demonstration, you will need:A SharePoint 2013 environment with the User Profile Service application configured and a My Sites web application configured.An Active Directory environment containing at least three users.One or more site collections (such as team sites or project sites).Within your site collections, one or more document libraries containing sample documents.At least four sample documents to demonstrate uploading and sharing. 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesIf you want to provide a quick demonstration of contemporary view for mobile devices, add the query string ?Mobile=1 to the URL of a site that supports automatic mobile browser redirection (for example, a team site or a project site). 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutesThe slide shows a simplified view of how push notifications work for SharePoint. Typically, all the IT professional will need to do is activate or deactivate the Push Notifications feature. 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes 
  • Timing guide: <1 minute 
  • Timing guide: 2 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 3 minutes 
  • Timing guide: 10 minutesThis demonstration  relies on the availability of the sample Product Catalog resources that were included with the SharePoint 2013 private beta 1 release. These resources include an upload script, SharePointImport.exe, that creates a Product Catalog site and adds sample data. If these resources are not available then you may want to consider providing a brief tour of the cross-site publishing functionality as an alternative demonstration. If more resources are available, you may be able to provide a more polished demonstration.To prepare for the demonstration, copy the Contoso Assets folder to the computer running your SharePoint 2013 installation, and then run the SharePointImport.exe file in the Upload Script folder. The executable should provision a Product Catalog site at http://[localhost]/sites/productcatalog and populate it with data.When the site provisioning process is complete, run a full search crawl to ensure that the product data is added to the search index.   This demonstration will need reviewing carefully against the VM set that we make available to instructors. The private beta 1 set includes demonstration data and an upload script for the source data. It also includes various publishing site resources, but no guidance on how to add or integrate them.
