April 2009 K2 User Group

Update 4/16/2009 - here is the recorded presentation.


I will be making a presentation to the K2 User Group on Tuesday April 14th from 11am to 1pm central US time. Below is information for attending via LiveMeeting.

I will be making a presentation on how to do document management with SharePoint and K2 with no code. This is a demo that I have given a few times and really demonstrates the power of the wizards within K2 to some really effective business processing. The information below says that the demo is on blackpoint, however it is all built on blackpearl. However since it is a no code implementation, it can be done completely on blackpoint…


Phillip Knight from Merit Energy will be hosting the K2 user group meetings at Merit Energy, located at 13727 Noel Road, 2nd Floor Conference room, Tower 2, Dallas, Texas 75240. Parking information is included in the linked map below. Remote attendance information is included at the bottom of this message.

Link to map: Reminder: Merit Energy is on the 5th floor, but the meeting will be held in a 2nd floor conference room. Once off the elevator, go to the reception area and we will bring you back to the conference room.

Please RSVP to me via email
