Microsoft Flow

April 30, 2016

Up early on a Saturday playing with a preview of Microsoft Flow ( What a nerd I am. If you’ve used Zapier, it’s a similar concept. Pretty excited about the future potential for all kinds of organizations.

FindTime and Wunderlist

April 25, 2016

I wanted to take a minute to share with you two products that have changed the way I work. I’ll admit, I’m continually excited by new and shiny things. If there’s something new out there I will give it a try. Rarely, however, do I find something that actually shifts how I approach fundamental aspects Read More

Office Online Inline

April 20, 2016

Recently on a project we needed a way to display PDFs inline on a page within a “document viewer” we were building. Basically there is a table of contents driven by a library going down the left hand side and when the user chooses a document we wanted to render it in a panel on Read More

We came across a situation recently where we needed to enable Publishing (at the web level – ie. It was already on at the site collection level) using PowerShell.

SharePoint JavaScript Working with Hyperlink Fields

February 28, 2016

The following should look familiar: itemVariable.get_item(‘abc’) where abc is the internal name of the column. (Remember the good old _x0020_ for spaces). But if you try to do the same on a Hyperlink column you will be returned Read More

Search Outlook Without Yammer

January 21, 2016

Thought I’d share a little pro tip today that I showed my colleague Kelly and she thought was quite useful. If you use Yammer, you undoubtedly get email notifications. I do my best to turn them all off but they still come for certain groups or features I’ve missed. Or maybe you like getting 10,000 Read More

SharePoint Online Invite External Users with PowerShell

January 19, 2016

Ever wished you could bulk invite external users to your SharePoint Online site? Turns out you can. Here’s the PowerShell.
