A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconUse SharePoint to automate the distribution of phone messages within an organization. This is the second article in a series.

In the demo below Peter Kalmstrom, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows how to create a simple SharePoint list app for phone messages, a list that can satisfy a small company or a limited number of users. (In later articles we will show a more advanced solution that will work over many site collections in a SharePoint tenancy or farm.)
