You have heard that SharePoint can find anything, but you are not seeing those results. You have important content that you want to find in the SharePoint Search center either in Office 365 or SharePoint on-premises. In this presentation Matthew will demonstrate how to run a search project for a specific kind of content, like Invoices, Templates, Sites, Contracts, Resumes, or whatever it is that you need to find. This session will outline the steps required for a successful search project and then demonstrate how to configure the content, the site, and the search center to deliver actionable results for your end users.

Autumn season is here, with so many events again: the calendar is full with workshops and conferences again.
One of the sessions I am doing this season has the title “Findability in YOUR Organization”.
The reason why I highlight the word *YOUR* is that each organization is unique with different needs. Therefore each organization needs a different approach and a different solution. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to search.
