Passageways PowWOW Learning1. Learn Something New

On Tuesday October 9, we’ll open PowWOW this year with Passageways University classes. This two-day hands-on classroom-style training sessions is perfect for new employees, if you need a refresher, or if you’re want to expand what’s possible on your portal.

Passageways University will include tried and true workshops like Help Desk App Training, Products and Services App Training, OnSemble Document Management, and more. This year we’ll also be holding open sessions to simply ask a Passageways pathfinder about anything that’s on your mind. We’ll have Pathfinders on hand to demo products, address support questions, or just network! Show up anytime and ask away!

Finally, if you haven’t had an opportunity to explore the new OnSemble releases over the past year like the System Permissions App, you’re in luck. We’ll be hosting sessions around everything new.

You can see a full list of the university sessions here.

So if you have new team members, need a refresher, or just want to get to know our solutions better, come, learn, and enjoy Indianapolis in October.

Passageways PowWOW Meet New Friends

2. Meet Someone New

One of the best aspects of PowWOW is the opportunity to connect, learn, and share among peers. We’ve heard from countless attendees that they’ve learned a new best practice or saw an inspiring new portal design and came home motivated to drive change. The people who come to PowWOW share so much in common from their roles and responsibilities to a shared passion for Passageways solutions – PowWOW turns out to be an event where friendships bloom.

Those friendships make PowWOW an impactful event, bringing together bright minds that are helping drive the future of digital collaboration.

Each year after the keynote, Passageways OnBoard and OnSemble product managers provide a retrospective and layout their plans for the year. What’s changed, what’s coming. PowWOW attendees not only have a front row seat, they have the opportunity to shape the future of our products.

PowWOW attendees have the unique opportunity to not only provide direct feedback to the Passageways team, their ideas make it into our products. From unique use cases that drive future development, to improvement that can be made, the Passageways team takes your feedback and runs with it – driving the future of our products and digital collaboration.
