  1. Hey Sarah,
    I have seen you speak several times at various SharePoint events and have always enjoyed it. I am former SharePoint instructor at Benchmark Learning and am now in a new position within a large organization. I am tasked with reorganizing their knowledge content using SharePoint. One thing that I have really been interested in is the process you take your clients through when they come asking for SharePoint sites. Do you happen to have any documentation or resources around this topic of site control? If so, I would love to see it. Thanks!

    1. Hi Mark –
      Sorry for the delay in getting this blog post created, but I’ve just posted an overview of my storyboarding process. Enjoy, and let me know if you have any other questions!


  2. Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for such a useful source of information.

    I have a requirement like same as you described in one of your post .I have to send 3 reminder mails
    1) Due date before 90 days
    2) Due date before 60/30 days
    3) Due date before 15 day

    I had created a retention policy also & tried to enable the related timer jobs in CA. I am currently working on SharePoint 2010. Please mail me the process.

  3. Thank you for your excellent blog.

    Like you, I am a librarian, but have had no prior exposure to SP. Having taken a role in a small IT department, I now find myself responsible for content management. I’m gleaning a lot of useful insight here as I try to formulate a plan to rework my company’s existing SP site collection. I’m looking forward to working on content as soon as I come up with a plan for the information architecture. Ruven Gotz’ book is going to be my first step. My plan is site architecture, taxonomy/classification, information life cycle, and then look and feel/aesthetics.

    Any suggestions/comments are welcome and thanks for your contribution.

  4. Hi Sarah,
    I attended several of your sessions at SharePoint Fest D.C. last week. I wanted to connect with you on ROI but it just didn’t happen. Maybe next year!

    Anyway, during your “When Cookie-Cutter User Adoption Doesn’t Cut it” session you mentioned a video that provided the model that you used for the COE of which you spoke. Can you point me in the direction of said video? I’d love to watch it as I’m in the process of building out a team at this very moment. Thanks so much!!!
