Frequently Asked Questions – Answers:

While the search principles discussed during the workshop can be applied to any search engine (including SharePoint on-prem versions, of course), the technical topics, discussions, and hands-on exercises will be specific to SharePoint Online only.

No. What you need is an account that can be added to Microsoft Teams which is the official platform of the training.
If you have a developer/playground tenant with your own test or dummy content, then you can use that during the course. Otherwise, we can provide a separate site for you which you can use to do all the hands-on exercises.

The short answer is no. We do two live sessions every day because of the significant time difference. So if you prefer option 1 you join that call, or if you prefer option 2 (I suppose everyone in the US and Canada) you join option 2. Or you can join both if you like 😊 
Also, we record every call so you can watch them later. 

We limit the number of attendees in order to be able to help everyone, regardless of their level of previous experience. You consume the pre-recorded videos and written materials in your own pace. During the live calls Agnes responds all questions – being it deep technical or high-level strategic or conceptual. Also, Agnes is online for 12 hours every day during the workshop, and helps everyone 1:1 on Teams as needed (chat as well as 1:1 calls).
In the previous workshops, we had attendees with various job roles and backgrounds:


Yes. We’re discussing all the application landscape in Microsoft 365, their search features. However, the primary focus will be on SharePoint Online, especially when discussing custom search applications.

This course is for you. We’ll discuss what and how you can achieve with the out-of-the-box toolset, and also where the boundaries and limitations are. Also, we’ll discuss what to do if you need custom search pages or complex search applications in SharePoint Online.
