  Shared By: Asia Meyers    Date: Jun 16   Category: Sharepoint    Views: 163808

Office SharePoint Designer 2007 uses FrontPage technology, but the new name reflects the emphasis on creating and customizing SharePoint sites and customizing applications on the SharePoint platform. With Office SharePoint Designer 2007, you can build sophisticated no-code solutions such as Data Views, reports, and workflow tracking quickly and easily by using menus, task panes, and templates.

This six-part training demo series provides information on how power users can get the most from Office SharePoint Designer 2007.

Office SharePoint Designer 2007 has a user interface that should look familiar to anyone who has used Microsoft Office products in the past. However, one of the noticeable changes from other Microsoft Office applications is the extensive use of task panes. Task panes allow users easy access to the tools that are most relevant for their current task.

Office SharePoint Designer 2007 provides an intuitive what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) environment for creating and customizing SharePoint sites and applications using Master Page and CSS technologies. You can take advantage of the power of ASP.NET as well as industry standard Extensible Hypertext Markup Language (XHTML) code and cascading style sheets (CSS) to build SharePoint sites that meet your needs and that meet industry standards for browser compatibility and accessibility.

Office SharePoint Designer 2007 has all the tools to help designers create ASP.NET master page layouts. Using master pages, you can create a single page template and then use that template as the basis for multiple pages in an application, instead of having to build each new page from scratch. With page layouts in Office SharePoint Server 2007, designers create the look and feel for a type of page, without worry about non-designers will break the brand or flow of the site.

Office SharePoint Designer 2007 allows you to design workflows that add no-code application logic to SharePoint sites and applications. Using the Workflow Designer, you create rules that associate conditions and actions with items in SharePoint lists and libraries. Changes to items in lists or libraries trigger actions in the workflow.

With Office SharePoint Designer 2007 no-code features, solution creators need not be solution developers. Designers can build sophisticated, collaborative, no-code tracking, reporting, and data-management solutions quickly and easily.

With Office SharePoint Designer 2007, the end-to-end developer can use sophisticated design tools. Seamless integration with Microsoft Visual Studio allows for simple creation of Web parts, site features, and custom site definitions.
