SharePoint’s New Swiss Army Knife: The Content Search Web Part

Topic Details

Each release of SharePoint has delivered new tools to make SharePoint sites sparkle, but few of these tools have been as exciting as SharePoint 2013’s Content Search Web Part (CSWP). Much like a Swiss Army Knife, the CSWP can be manipulated and configured in a multitude of ways. It can be used for everything from showing basic search results to displaying personalized content that is both interactive and dynamically generated. Whether you are using SharePoint on-premises or in the cloud, and whether you are “just” an end-user or a hard-core developer, the CSWP is one built-in web part you will want to understand in order to make your SharePoint sites shine. In this demo-heavy session, you will learn what you need to know to become productive with the CSWP in no time at all.
1. Dive into how the CSWP works and how it can be configured
2. Identify where the CSWP can be used and when there are better options
3. Demonstrate how the CSWP can be used in-place of custom code for certain scenarios
