We are looking at deploying the SharePoint 2013 personal site/ MySite feature but management wants to change a lot of things that come with the default template. We want to suppress certain features and add custom features the link to existing ERP systems.
I've only barely started with 2013 and I'm having trouble finding a place to start. We are going to be deploying on-premise enterprise SharePoint (legal and security insist that we deploy on-premise). The site creation and configuration has to be completely automated due to the number of employees we have. My questions can be summarized as:
- Can the personal site / MySite template be customized or the application changed to deploy a different template?
- Is this a good idea?
- Where should I start looking for information on this?
I am having a horrible time finding information from Technet and web searches aren't getting me very far. I'm wondering if I can't find information because most people don't do this. At least getting the basic site up and running was easy...
