    20 Apr 2015 | 5:41 am
    Ever since Angular 2.0 was announced at ng-Europe in October 2014, there's been quite a bit of fud around it with many people being frustrated and fretting about having to completely rewrite their apps. All this is to be expected... the Angular team did a poor job of announcing it with poorly done slides of tombstones & very little explanation for those of us who weren't in the audience. Then they took forever to clarify but in March 2015 at ng-conf in Salt Lake City, Utah, they did a much better job. In this post I'm going to give my take on trying to explain where I see things and how…

    SharePoint makes life really easy with being able to create new sites, lists, libraries, columns, etc.  In fact, it makes the process too easy.

That is, if your organization wants to provide any kind of “joined-up” experience that works well for end-users, across sites in the cloud and sites in an on-premises SharePoint environment.

    Being the president of your own company has its advantages. However, it doesn't mean that you always get your way or that you've always got the power to tell others what to do. There are committees, boards, and other places where you're not in charge. In my case there are also clients who are – in effect – my manager. They are the people that I serve and I'm rarely in a position to "tell" them what to do. Though I can advise them – I can't make things happen.

Essentially people are seeing all the messaging we are communicating from Redmond around the Office 365 Developer platform and wanting to know how they can prepare now where they are still on SharePoint Server 2007, 2010 and 2013. The biggest misconception was that the app model only worked in SharePoint Online on Office 365, mainly due to the messaging saying the “cloud app…

    Nikander & Margriet Bruggeman

    Security assessments typically advise to lockdown IIS and limit the number of available HTTP methods that can be used to the minimum. Tools such as Urlscan (http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/473/using-urlscan) can help with that, but the big question is if it is a good idea to use such tools in a SharePoint environment. For a typical web application, support for the HTTP GET and POST methods may be enough, but SharePoint is not aywhere near typical. Forstarters, it supports the WebDAV, REST, and FrontPage Server Extensions protocols. The following URL contains a list of all known HTTP methods:…

    The combination of the properties OnClientClick and UseSubmitBehavior prevent a button from being clicked twice before completed. The following makes sure the button can’t be clicked twice: OnClientClick=”javascript:this.disabled=’disabled'” But, this also means the ASP.NET click event won’t happen!!! In order to do so you need to set the following: UseSubmitBehavior=”False” Setting this property to true bypasses the client browser’s submit mechanism in favor of the ASP.NET postback mechanism. Setting this leads to the insertion of some client-side script…

Collections that are being modified do not like to be processed with FOR EACH."Collection was modified; enumeration operation may not execute" For example:$web = Get-SPWeb someurl...

      The SharePoint Group object has a property named "Description", but it appears to be ignored. When you edit a group in the browser there is no "Description" field, but there is one named "About Me" that is a rich text field. Turns out there's a few secrets you need to know to set this seemly simple little property. Secret #1: Many of the group's properties are stored in another object, the

When you invoke the Register Add-in Express Project command in Visual Studio, Add-in Express shows a message suggesting that you use the Any CPU platform instead. Below I describe how to work around this

    Now, finally, we can move and copy files within our OneDrive for Business web GUI ” ‘ Some random document… Some time, early 2015, Microsoft introduced the ability to move/copy files in OneDrive for Business. This has been one of the major obstacles for using OneDrive for Business as a E1 user without the Office applications installed locally. Or rather, as a Online only user no matter what license. As a long time SHarePoint user and technician, this is a long awaited feature in SHarePoint as well, so now I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this ‘simple’…

    ‘new document’ now supports Content types in SharePoint Online ‘ Thank you Microsoft, Content types just got user friendly and easy to use and promote! ‘ The new- new document dialog ‘ Before yesterday, I knew that the ‘new document’ button in a document library became useless when you enabled Content types in a document library. This has for me and many of my customers been a huge drawback since the ‘new document’ button was still there, in plain view and for the regular user, what they were meant to use. This old behavious was that…

    Welcome to an article which goes into the land of SharePoint Training. This attempts to examine various levels of training and how they can and are being mapped to SharePoint information workers, irrespective of whether they are SharePoint on-premise, or SharePoint through Office365. Please note, that whilst I go into some detail on training delivery that I am not a SharePoint Trainer; however, I think I’ve got enough experience through the implementation of SharePoint Training strategies for many organizations, so I suppose I’ve got some points that may be useful either to you as…

    When delivering an Office 365 service, you will need to ensure that the customer has access to resources to help them understand and get up to speed. As seen with SharePoint ‘getting the users on-board’, there is always a danger of ‘recreating’ adoption content, simply because information is non-centralised – that also means having to spend time gathering and crafting that content so that it is visually appealing (for example)! This is particularly true of those who focus on particular aspects of Office 365 and yet are seen as the provider of the platform to…

    When utilising a collaboration tool the key productivity rationale is to automate processes through the content stored within that collaboration tool.

Therefore, it is crucial that when thinking of what workflow tool should be used to automated business process that you understand also the options, strengths, weaknesses of the various workflow options that can be utilised with SharePoint.
