Welcome

- Hi, I'm Gini Courter. Welcome to SharePoint Designer 2010 Building Custom Workflows. In this course, I'll be showing you how to create and document workflows. I'll show you how to use the built-in workflows, how to build simple workflow steps and how to set up workflows to behave the way you want them to behave. I'll show you how to create conditions within workflows so that the workflows themselves do what's necessary without your intervention. I'll show you how to create and include forms, send email notifications and incorporate core actions such as performing calculations and creating, updating and deleting list items.

You'll also see how to update data and create reusable and site workflows, two types of workflows that are new to SharePoint 2010. Let's get started with SharePoint Designer 2010 Building Custom Workflows.
