Automating the site creation process

  Asked By: Garrett    Date: Jul 14    Category: MOSS    Views: 1044

We are about to embark on opening a global Sharepoint 2007 system.
Part of the process will be to have users submit requests for sites
(Teams, projects, working groups, etc...). The system administration
team will take the requests and process them. We have created templated
for the different types of sites and will use them in the creation
process. The next step is to AUTOMATE this process so that we can a)
take the human error out and b) process the requests quicker.

I am looking for examples of how to do the automation, based on a
manual process.

What would you say is a best practice?
have you done this before and willing to share ?

We are looking at possibly doing a similar thing. On our local systems, we use
Nintex2007 for our workflow management, and I know that it has a built-in action
called " Create a site". You feed it details such as the parent site, the
template to use, etc... and it does all the heavy lifting for you. Couple this
with an infopath form to gather the required info and some approval steps, and
you've got a nifty solution that is quick, and more importantly, consistent.
