Workflow Configuration in SharePoint 2013


Below are the steps I have followed to configure SharePoint 2013 workflow:

1. Understand workflows in SharePoint 2013: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219638.aspx .

2. Initially, the Workflow Service in SharePoint 2013 is not connected for it requires a compatible workflow service such as Workflow Manager, and the SharePoint Designer 2013 has only SharePoint 2010 Workflow platform option.

3. Download and install Workflow Manager 1.0. The download link and other information are available at http://www.microsoft.com/en-my/download/details.aspx?id=35375 .

4. Download and install Workflow Client in SharePoint server. The download link and other information are available at http://www.microsoft.com/en-my/download/details.aspx?id=35375

5. Configure workflow in SharePoint server. Please refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj658588(v=office.15) for the guide.

6. At this point, the Workflow Service will already be connected, and SharePoint 2013 Workflow platform option in SharePoint Designer 2013 will already be available.

OneNote Notebook in SharePoint Server 2013


After integrating Office Web Apps Server 2013 with SharePoint Server 2013, a OneNote shared notebook will automatically be created upon creation of a Team Site. We can use this notebook to apprehend and share information.

Hoping to share some points on SharePoint.

Office Web Apps Server 2013 – SharePoint Server 2013 Integration


Office Web Apps enables users to view and edit Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote files using a supported web browser on computers and mobile devices. While this piece focuses on the integration of Office Web Apps Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013, OWA is as well available through SharePoint Online and Office 365, SkyDrive, and Office 2013.

Below are the steps I have followed to integrate Office Web Apps Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013.

  1. Install and configure SharePoint Server 2013. In this instance, I am running a SharePoint Server 2013 RTM, Windows Server 2012, and SQL Server 2012.
  2. Install Office Web Apps Server 2013 in a distinct server. Office Web Apps Server could not be installed on a SharePoint server.
  3. Activate Web Server Role, Application Server Role, and Ink and Handwriting Services Feature in the Office Web Apps server.
  4. Deploy Office Web Apps Server 2013 using the guidance provided at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219455.aspx .
  5. Configure SharePoint Server 2013 to use Office Web Apps 2013 using the guidance provided at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff431687.aspx.

At this point, we could now enjoy viewing and editing our Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote files using a web browser on computers and mobile devices.

Hoping that I have shared some points on SharePoint.
