To truly realize your investment in SharePoint, it is
recommended for all organizations to utilize Microsoft SharePoint
Designer 2010 (SPD) in at least some capacity. Just like the
browser, SPD will let you build SharePoint site components like
subsites, lists, libraries, pages, site columns and content types.
The difference is that doing it through SPD is much faster, easier
and has a lot more customizable options. For example, creating a
list and modifying its schema can be performed in just a couple of
steps. In addition, you have the option to define custom actions
(such as starting a workflow or displaying a form) that can be
executed on each list item. You can also configure SharePoint site
security directly within SPD.
In this video below, we explore the various interfaces of
SharePoint Designer 2010. You will find more video tutorials on
SharePoint Designer at SharePoint-Videos.com.
