Welcome

Hi, I'm Gini Courter. Welcome to SharePoint Designer 2013: Custom Workflows. In this course, I'll be showing you how to create and document workflows. Steps that are taken automatically by SharePoint to automate the work in your organization. I'll show how to use SharePoint's built in workflows, but then we'll quickly go beyond that to build simple, custom workflow steps. You'll learn how to set up workflows to behave the way you want them to behave.

You'll learn how to create conditions within workflows, so that the workflows themselves do what's necessary without additional intervention. And I'll show you how to create and use forms in your workflows, how to send email notifications, and how to incorporate core workflow actions, such as performing calculations, storing values and creating, updating, and deleting list items. We'll also look at two types of workflows that can be reused within SharePoint. Reusable workflows, and site workflows.

We have a lot to do, so let's get started with SharePoint Designer 2013 Custom Workflows.
