Product Description

From the Back Cover

Build successful solutions to business challenges with SharePoint 2010

Although many organizations have embraced SharePoint, most just scratch the surface of its potential to provide comprehensive business process automation solutions—even though all the components are there to do so. Written by two SharePoint MVPs, this comprehensive guide shows you step by step how to build solutions to real-world problems using SharePoint 2010 and leverage the exciting new workflow capabilities Microsoft introduced in the platform. The authors dive into a variety of common challenges that companies face every day and explore them in great detail—while also offering specific instructions and screenshots—so you can confidently know when and how to use SharePoint Designer as well as Visual Studio.

Professional Workflow in SharePoint 2010:

  • Presents an approachable and highly effective method for engaging with your end user community

  • Empowers non-technical users to create simple but valuable business applications thereby freeing developers for more complex tasks

  • Demonstrates ways to use SharePoint Designer to create a variety of top-notch solutions, including on-boarding, time off requests, helpdesk ticketing, and many more

  • Shares ways to build custom actions using Visual Studio® to be integrated directly into SharePoint Designer

Wrox Professional guides are written by working developers to address everyday needs. They provide examples, practical solutions, and expert education in new technologies, all designed to help programmers do a better job.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Donia Strand on March 5 2012
Format: Paperback
I've been struggling with the instructions in Chapter 3, there are missing sections, items that are mentioned once and then never mentioned again (or missing instructions on how to implement). P44 references a Master ID, and a New Hire Task Status List, and the screenshot following contains no Master ID, and a reference to a New Hire Task Statuses custom list created earlier (when?).
Later chapters are just as bad, you can't trust the instructions. I'm quite upset I paid money for this. It also wasted my time. It certainly won't help me create a solution, too much is missing.
Obviously no one tested the solutions in the book before it went to press. And, why aren't there clear steps for implementing these solutions? I can't tell always what is a comment and what is a step. Ug.

Don't buy this book. Dec 28 2011
By bighamp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Don't buy this book. Beginning in chapter 3, the author begins to make major errors and has major omissions. It is impossible for even an experienced developer, such as myself, in Windows Workflow and Sharepoint to follow the instructions and complete the examples. If you go to the Wrox site and look at the forum for this book, you will see 10 major complaints. No one on the forum could get past chapter 6 because of all the errors. Dispite the complaints made in the Wrox forum, the author has not responded or created an errata document. Amazon should review that forum and withdraw the book. Amazon is doing a major disservice to your readers if you continue to feature this book.

Once again, FLAT OUT, everyone DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. If you bought the book, request a refund, such as I am doing.

Can't reccomend this book Jan. 3 2012
By Nathan_IL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think that the author is technically savvy at workflows and Sharepoint design. But he is not a technical writer. The editors are just as much to blame here as well. There is no way this should have gone to print. The gaps are so large that it is impossible to follow most of the time. I've been able to work my way through it and there are some good points in the book, but I was expecting to be able to use this to take me over the hump and be able to develop solid workflows from it. That is simply not the case.

I would strongly suggest you find a different book on Sharepoint 2010 workflows and buy that one instead.

Can't follow the procedures Feb. 13 2012
By M. Imhoff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you're going to include procedures in a technical book, you need to number the steps. In this case most of the steps aren't numbered, so it's unclear which sentences contain background information and which contain steps to be followed.

You also need to have someone test the procedures to make sure they work. It's obvious that nobody did this. Maybe readers who already have an in-depth knowledge of SharePoint can fill in the blanks. For the rest of us, this book is an exercise in frustration.

Worst tech book EVER !!! Jan. 18 2012
By Wayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think they may have assumed that a savvy technical person could fill in the gaps and edited out some of the details. They left out how to complete the lessons. They referanced directions in the text that didn't exist. Obviously, nobody attempted to follow the direction in this book before it went to press.

That being said, there were some valuable insights on design limitation in SPD and how to work around them. Go figure.

Still it is really BAD

Too many errors and missing instructions to be helpful March 21 2012

Please review the book's forum at Wrox detailing the issues with it before you buy. It's really too bad, it would have been a great book if it had been edited and tested before it was released. I can understand a few errors, but Chapter 3 was absolutely riddled with them and the errata doesn't even begin to address these.
