Using the Filter Pane in a Modern SharePoint Library in SharePoint Online

February 24, 2017

I’ve been using the new modern SharePoint library experience in Microsoft SharePoint Online for some time now. However every now and then I stumble across a button I haven’t used before in this new experience. These are not new buttons… I haven’t found a reason to use the function until I seek them out.

How to Open or Save As a File to a SharePoint Location from Word 2016

January 18, 2017

When you’ve been working with SharePoint for a number of years, some tips and tricks become ingrained and second-nature.

How to Make “Hidden Files” with No Checked in Version Visible in a SharePoint Library

May 16, 2016

In a SharePoint Library that has “Required Check Out” turned on in the Library’s Versioning Settings, there is a risk that brand new files that are uploaded to the library will be hidden from other people’s view.

Yep, I haven’t posted in a loooong while. I also haven’t been *this* excited about a Microsoft announcement until now. We attended the webcast of Microsoft’s “The Future of SharePoint” live event. I’ll save a summary of my first impressions and *gasp* worthy moments for later day, but for now I want to share two useful Read More

Have you ever clicked on the “Post” button in SharePoint Online? While hunting for a “there’s gotta be a faster way” solution to co-worker Sean Wallbridge’s “Copy Shortcut – Gonzo in SharePoint Online!” blog post, I spotted a “new” (to me) button that we suspect has been around for quite some time in SharePoint Online.

How to Open a Link in a New Tab in Any Internet Browser

June 22, 2015

One of the students at a recent SharePoint class I delivered, asked: “Where is the setting to have links in a SharePoint Links list open in a new tab?” Great question!
