    3 Feb 2015 | 7:38 pm
    I’m not following SharePoint, no, but you have to be blind not to have noticed there is a new version coming out. Like I said two years ago and started describing three years ago. Doesn’t matter. What matters is how it’s done. Let me point out a few of Microsoft’s “here’s what’s coming” projects. .NET … Continue reading SharePoint 2016, Like It Always Was The post SharePoint 2016, Like It Always Was appeared first on Furuknap's Corner.

    27 Mar 2015 | 3:19 pm
    As I prepare to talk at the upcoming Ignite and SharePoint Evolutions conferences (will post details soon), I was reflecting on the technology landscape I’m currently working in.  As I’m not the first to mention, for many SharePoint developers the world is a different place now to how it’s been in previous years. If you work with the cloud in some form (Office 365, Azure, Yammer or other platforms) then you’ll probably be nodding your head at that statement. If not, then maybe the wave hasn’t hit you yet but could do in the next 12 months. Either way, the level of change seems…

    SharePoint has the capacity to allow “tweaking” to make it do more and more precisely what you need for it to do. For that reason, users are constantly requesting changes to their SharePoint environment.Handling those change requests usually falls squarely on the shoulders of the SharePoint Farm Administrator. But not anymore! Meet ChangeBot.ChangeBot is the new automated change request attendant who can process those SharePoint change requests from request to approval to task completion -- automatically! If you’ve been processing SharePoint change requests manually, then ChangeBot…

  • Lots of Updates for Breeze + SharePoint

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:34 am
    Last year about this time I blogged about using Breeze with SharePoint... you can go back and read those three posts that explain the benefits to using Breeze with SharePoint. What does Breeze do for you, the SharePoint developer? When working with the REST API in SharePoint you have to write a bunch of plumbing code... this is very much like writing the connection objects & T-SQL strings to interact with data stored in SQL Server if you were doing things on the server. On the server we now have technologies like LINQ for simplified queries you write in code & Entity Framework that…

    Last week I put together two sample Apps for Office for use at the hackathon at ng-conf. Two two apps, one for Excel & one for Outlook, were a bit different from your typical App for Office because of a few things: Built without Visual Studio (I used WebStorm / Brackets) Built using Angular & Angular Material Built on OSX, not Windows These decisions were made because the majority of the audience used OSX and the goal was to get people aware of and ideally interested in building Apps for Office. Well it worked! If you aren't familiar with Apps for Office, in a nutshell you create an…

    This weekend I had the privilege to work with Southern Cross Animal Rescue of Laurel, MS on becoming digitally enabled.  This is an organization that I was introduced to through a friend.  While exploring options with them I found that Microsoft has some pleasant surprises for non-profits with their Office 365 offerings.While Microsoft in general has treated nonprofits well, with Office 365 they've taken it to the next level.  An organization can setup a trial account and go through a process for Microsoft to verify that the non-profit is indeed a valid 501(c)(3)…

    Whereas marketing and sales as well as financial departments have been using advanced analytics for quite a while, it seems that HR is still in one of the early maturity phases of analytics usage. This  is a view which seemed to be shared by CEOs. In a recent study CEOs gave their HR department a 5.9 (out of 10) for their analytical skills.  (See CEO niet overtuigd van analytische skills HR ) Whereas HR controls a lot of data (and needs to keep it up to date) it does not seem to be able to use this data to provide strategic advise to the board of directors.

  • Resetting content index in SharePoint Server 2013: why and how

    jopx
    2 Mar 2015 | 7:16 am
    When you are developing against SharePoint Server 2013 search, you might forced to reset the search index. You can do this using the SharePoint user interface through the screen shown below or using PowerShell. I prefer to use PowerShell since resetting through the user interface seems to give me timeouts especially when the index is a quite large. One of the reasons why you are required to reset your content index is when your Search Service Application got into an unhealthy state because of insufficient disk space (See Fixing the Search Service after the Index Drive fills) but I also…

    I read and reviewed Schools without Failure where I was introduced to Dr. Galsser's work on Reality Therapyand the subject of this book review Choice Theory. Fundamental to Choice theory is that we all make choices that we're not victims and we have the ability to make choices. You've seen my frustration with victimhood and helplessness in some of my other book reviews (See Boundaries, Beyond Boundaries, Daring Greatly, and Change or Die.).

However, I've not found many resources that focused on the humble job aid – that is until Job Aids and Performance Support: Moving from Knowledge in the Classroom to Knowledge Everywhere.

I can't tell you how few people would find a book on effectiveness in psychotherapy interesting – but I know that it's possible I'm in the minority here. However, I've been to a few counselors over the years.

It is hard to believe that 14 years have since the introduction of Windows SharePoint Services. According to Microsoft, there are now 125 million SharePoint users and over $1.5 billion in annual SharePoint revenues – not bad for a product once dismissed by the major enterprise content management (ECM) providers as not ‘real’ ECM.

  • SharePoint Online and Azure AD Dynamic Groups

    22 Mar 2015 | 1:47 pm
    One very common requirement in SharePoint, and other portal solutions for that matter, is to have the possibility to target content to a dynamic audience of users and even secure information based on dynamic rules. Traditionally this has been done with Audiences in SharePoint. Audience is a dynamic set of users that is compiled, usually once a day, and at compile time the rules of the Audience is evaluated. A SharePoint Audience is used to target information, but cannot be used to protect content - ie as a security group. The Azure Active Directory released a new feature the other week,…

  • Word Stemming in SharePoint 2013 Search

    Mike Smith
    15 Mar 2015 | 1:32 pm
      Word Stemming Word stemming is when a search engine resolves a word to its root form and then returns variations of the word. For example, search for one of these and return the rest: run, ran runner, running, runs fish, fishes, fisher, fishing   SharePoint 2013 Word Stemming SharePoint 2013 only does "stemming" on singulars and plurals. So all we get for "run" is "runs" and for "fish" is "

All you had to do was enter the URL to the problem item and click Remove Now. SharePoint then remove the item from the index and wrote a Crawl Rule to make sure the content was ignored by the crawler in all future
  • SharePoint 2013: Missing Search Box

    Mike Smith
    5 Mar 2015 | 9:09 pm
      You have a search box over your list or library and I don't! Why? SharePoint 2013 has added a search box to most lists and libraries that is scoped to the current list. When the user performs the search they will stay in the list’s page. They will not be redirected to a search results page. They can continue to sort or filter the results using the column heading dropdowns.     Pretty cool!

    For the past couple of weeks Google is sending explicit warning notifications to webmasters with critical mobile usability errors. By April 21st, sites not seen as mobile-friendly by Google Search will be penalized or how Google nicely put it “will therefore be displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users.” These warning notifications are sent via emails and Google Webmaster Tools. If your website is recognized by Google as “mobile-friendly”, you could be rewarded with a ranking boost in the Google search results. Since June 2013 when Google introduced a…

So, Microsoft confirmed the roll out of SharePoint Server 2016 in the second half of 2015. The new version will make available some features developed and deployed first on SharePoint Online. According to Microsoft, the new SharePoint Server 2016 has been designed, developed and tested with the Microsoft Software as a Service (SaaS) strategy at its core, drawing…
