Insights On Getting Users On Board Faster and More Sustainably

Caveman user adoption strategies

Posted by Eric Eaton on Nov 14, 2017 9:03:00 AM

I’ve been doing some speaking lately on the topic of user adoption. It’s an important subject, not least of which because so many times we, as an industry, get it wrong. We either ignore it (build it and they will come) or treat it like a project (training classes will be complete by August 1). In my experience, neither of those things work. Success is not rocket science, though. There are many books and posts out there that discuss adoption from more conceptual perspectives related to vision, communications, and human behavioral changes. Those discussions are certainly valid, but I plan to tackle the topic from a more functional perspective and discuss strategies and activities as they apply to the team behind the platform.

WEBINAR - Find Out How to Put SharePoint Learning Into Your Site Collection

Posted by Alex Brown on Jun 7, 2017 9:00:00 AM

*Multiple Times Available*

When SharePoint users understand how to complete their tasks, they are quicker to adopt the system. They can get help, training, and performance support they need to adopt SharePoint faster without relying on ineffective traditional training, unmanageable Internet searches, and other wasteful options. Site Collection Administrators can now drive learning on SharePoint without heavy investments in IT.

The VisualSP for Site Collections product provides users with training through a convenient Help tab that sits on the right of the screen. Users can move the tab up and down to improve screen viewing, and a quick click opens a menu of help and training topics for the page being viewed.
