Hi! I am Simon Allardice and welcome to SharePoint 2010 Essential Training. In this course, we are going to dive deep into exploring SharePoint's features and benefits. We'll see how to create SharePoint sites and work with Site Collections, handle Office integration, security and permissions, and even explore advanced features like document management and business intelligence. We're going to go beyond just what you need to get started with SharePoint and really get to grips with this technology. SharePoint is huge and it can take time to really learn.

But when you choose correctly, it makes your life easier. If you're looking for SharePoint to help grow your business, help you or your colleagues work together, or maybe you've just heard that you're supposed to know this thing called SharePoint, you're in the right place. SharePoint is one of the fastest- growing products that Microsoft has ever had, and it's becoming more important every day to know how to work with it. Now you may have had some exposure to SharePoint already, but I'm going to start from the very beginning. So I expect no SharePoint knowledge, but you should be familiar with the Microsoft Office products, things like Word and Excel and Outlook.

So with that, let's begin with SharePoint 2010 Essential Training.

Q: In the "Adding a user to a site" movie, the instructor shows how to add a user to SharePoint and demonstrates by adding a user named “gini.” But gini is already set up and recognized by SharePoint. What if I have no users set yet? How can I add someone?
A: SharePoint doesn't store a separate user database; it wants to be pointed to an existing source of users, like Active Directory. If you don't have that, you need to first add your new users as local accounts on the Windows box you installed SharePoint on. Only then will you be able to give them permission on a SharePoint site.
