Detailed Course Content:

The document management (DMS – Document Management System) planning process consists of the following major steps:

Identify document management roles:

Ensure that your plans incorporate the feedback of your organization’s key stakeholders, you have the best team to implement the solution, and you know who will participate in document management processes.

Analyze document usage:

After you identify who works on documents, determine the kinds of documents they work on and how they use them. This covers in the Session Identify users and analyze document usage (SharePoint Server 2010).

Plan the organization of documents:

You can organize documents in site collections, sites, and libraries.SharePoint Server 2010 offers a range of features to help organize and store documents, from specialized sites such as the Records Repository to loosely structured libraries for quick document creation and collaboration. Within a library, you can further organize content into folders and subfolders. This covers in the Session Document library planning (SharePoint Server 2010) and Enterprise content storage planning (SharePoint Server 2010).

Plan how content moves between locations:

It might be necessary to move or copy a document from one site or library to another at different stages of its life cycle. For example, the publishing process might include moving a document from a staging site to a public Internet site. This covers in the Session “Plan the flow of content” in Document library planning (SharePoint Server 2010).

Plan content types:

Use content types to organize information about documents, such as metadata, document templates, policies, and workflow processes. This is an important step to help you organize your documents and enforce consistency across your organization. This covers in the Session Content type and workflow planning (SharePoint Server 2010).

Plan workflows:

When you plan workflows for your organization, you can control and track how documents move from one team member to another as each participant collaborates in a document’s life cycle. SharePoint Server 2010 includes workflows for common team tasks such as reviewing and approving documents. SharePoint Server 2010 also supports creating and installing custom workflows. This covers in the Session Content type and workflow planning (SharePoint Server 2010).

Plan content control :

You can plan the appropriate degree of control based on content type or storage location. For example, you might require that documents in a particular library be checked out before they can be edited. This covers in the Session Versioning, content approval, and check-out planning (SharePoint Server 2010).

Plan policies:

For each content type, plan information management policies to ensure that documents are properly audited, retained, labeled, and otherwise handled according to your organization’s institutional and legal requirements. SharePoint Server 2010 includes policies that implement auditing, document retention, labeling, and bar codes (to ensure that printed content can be correlated with corresponding electronic versions). This covers in the Session Information management policy planning (SharePoint Server 2010).

    Student Testimonials

    I recently completed my Interior designing softwares and it was an amazing experience. I studied AutoCad, Revit and SketchUp here. The time schedule was really flexible. I had two tutors and one of them was Sarath sir, he was very helpful and improved me a lot in software skills and as well as other professional skills. And to specially mention, all the tutors and staffs were friendly and supportive. There are many other courses in this institute and I strongly recommend to try those here.

    I just completed my VAT course at the Spoton training institute. I was new to Dubai and was a little scared to explore and learn new things but my trainer made it very easy, he made the course interesting and delivered it simply. If any doubt arrives in the class he will clear that doubt with some examples from his work experience so that I can understand easily. I got more knowledge from this class, so I thank spoton institute.

    I had a fantastic experience with the fashion designing course at Spoton Training Institute . The curriculum covered a diverse range of topics, including fashion digital illustration, fashion draping, garment construction, and pattern making. Ayana, our trainer, was exceptional, providing thorough guidance and expertise. The classes were engaging, and the overall atmosphere was conducive to learning. I highly recommend this institute for anyone looking to pursue a comprehensive and hands-on fashion design education.

I highly recommend SpotOn for their VAT course, especially for the convenience of online learning and the expertise of trainers like Jiss Thomas.
