I was watching the SharePoint Conference North America 2018 Keynote (#SPC18 on Twitter) and I must admit, I “geeked out” a little bit about SharePoint Spaces and started to contemplate how I could convince the executive team to sign off on a Commercial HoloLens. If you are not familiar with SharePoint Spaces head over to the GeekWire article on SharePoint spaces by Nat Levy.

When a user attempts to log into their SharePoint site and gets a “Not found in SharePoint Directory” error, this usually means that the user received the External User invite at one email address, but used a different email address to accept the invite. When this occurs, the only fix is to remove all occurrences of both the user’s accounts (invite and acceptance) on the SharePoint site, explain the error to the user and how to properly accept the invite, then re-send the invite.
NOTE: In order to remove the email accounts of the external user, the person performing this task must have Site Collection Administration rights.

When using the ADAL package on the Xamarin iPhone emulator, it requires quite a process to get up and running. Installing ADAL requires the NuGet Package “Microsoft.IdentityModel.Clients.ActiveDirectory”. Once that’s installed, you must create an authenticator service to assist with authenticating.
I was in requirements gathering meetings all day, so this evening I was doing some “actual work” when a I received an email congratulating me on my Microsoft certification. Being that I haven’t taken an exam in a few months I was a little perplexed. Not that I mind getting more certifications but I generally like to actually know about it beforehand.
