SharePoint Tuesday Recap: Episode 6

It feels like summer is almost over. Vacations are wrapping up and kids are getting ready to head back to school – if the stores have anything to say about it, at least. It seems that summertime is quickly passing by.  But don’t let the latest episode of SharePoint Tuesday pass by. If you missed our July 17th episode of SharePoint Tuesday we’ve got it archived for download, so you can listen to it or watch it at your convenience.

SharePoint Tuesday events are virtual open forums hosted on the first and third Tuesday of every month. These hour-long virtual Q & A sessions give you access to SharePoint911 thought leaders who are now part of the Rackspace team. If you’ve joined us in the past for our educational series, then you know SharePoint Tuesday isn’t a typical webinar series. There are no set topics of discussion. Instead, each week we give you the opportunity to jump on the chat and ask your specific questions to a team of experts.

To make it a little more interesting, we want you to put our experts to the test. Participants are encouraged to bring hard questions — we mean it! If you Stump the MVP, Rackspace will donate $100 on behalf of you or your company to charity:water. We’ve already awarded a handful of attendees with this honor and this week we congratulate Julie Olivieri, a Senior Technology Auditor — congratulations Julie!

In Episode No. 6 (July 17) Microsoft MVP Laura Rogers answered questions from participants on a variety of SharePoint subjects including:

  • Connecting a SharePoint form library to a non Web access database
  • For info path using external content types, adding dropdown boxes from other SQL sources when multiple data sources are not allowed
  • Different no code options available to extract the contents of a list in an external SQL database

Download the SharePoint Tuesday episode No. 5 mp3 or watch the flash video from July 17, 2012, and we hope you can join us for the next SharePoint Tuesday session on August 7th from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. CST.
