  • Introduction to Microsoft Syntex (as it is today).  
  • Get started with setup - how to setup the trial of Syntex in your environment and configuring the environment.
  • Build out Content Processing - using Syntex with some sample documents (Note: This uses PnP PowerShell to help get started but it isn't needed to use the same skills with your own content).
  • Part 2 - The End-User Experience & Licensing

  • In this part, we will take a tour around Syntex to fully understand it from an end-users point of view.
  • We will also discuss dreaded "L word". We will learn about the licensing needs for model builders, administrators and end users
  • The exciting future - an overview of the announcements for Microsoft Syntex from Ignite 2022 including translation, backup/restore and archival
  • Description:

    An LMS Is So Much More Than A Simple List Of Courses And An Attendee.

    When you consider the Power Platform, you may think it's only suitable for quite simple applications. When you buy off the shelf software (and pay a LOT for it) you do so because you believe you have more complex requirements that mean you need something 'more'. But what if all it takes is a little experimentation and some easy to gain new skills?

    This workshop will prove that you don't need to reach for the finance team immediately when you want to solve a business problem.

    Using our BLUE model (Build it, learn it, Use it, Enhance it), you'll quickly create a cost effective prototype, gain new skills in the Power Platform, be able to take your solution for a test drive in your own time and help make a decision on whether its something you want to enhance further. This 5 hour investment will pay you back in spades with what you'll learn from the experience.

    What Can you use Microsoft Syntex for?

    • Accounts (Invoices, Reciepts, etc) - With the ability to extract customer details, dates and amounts, you can catagorise all your documents, as well as automate the related business processing ensuring all steps are taken at the right time.
    • Order Processing - Simply uploading an order document into SharePoint either manually or via OCR (optical character recognition) could be the trigger to automate you order processing.
    • Automatically Create Documents - Remove the repetition involved in Creating multiple similar documents by using templates and auto populating with data from other files or data sources. 
    • Contract Renewals - Automatically remind your teams of dates held within any documents e.g Contract Renewals, Training Renewals and Review Dates.

    This training includes:

    • 5 hours of training
    • Access to the Collab365 Academy
    • Workshop Resources
    • Watch on Desktop or Mobile

    Thoughts from the Collab365 Team:

    "Knowing we can deploy an automated "librarian" & "document analyst" as one, is likely to be a huge game changer!"

    If - like us - you have a huge array of different content (videos and documents), knowing that you can analyse meta data, add tags, potentially re-route and update only certain parts of your library without having to manually check or build complex solutions, could be a game changer.

    Firstly, Syntex can analyse your content, looking for key pieces of information inside and associated to each item

    Secondly, you can perform complex interactions, cataloguing and re-routing all within an intuitive interface using MS Syntex. (and a WHOLE LOT more...)
    One thing we didn't want to do however is buy into a 'one trick pony' that could only catalogue our document metadata.

    We wanted a tool that could pull in data, arrange, add to and complement our SharePoint information with sources outside of SharePoint. For example using OCR to digest our invoices and more.

    Microsoft Syntex allows us to do this and unlock a whole lot MORE besides.
    If you are keen to know more about "how to solve a problem like content" in your organisation, this workshop is a must see.
