Introduction to SharePoint Designer 2010

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.
