WHAT’S NEW IN OFFICE 365 (August 2018)

With a little over 6 weeks to go until Ignite and the Business Application Summit last month we are sure to be getting some new features and enhancements galore over the next couple months.  As an FYI: Microsoft has made most of, if not all the Business Applications Summit sessions available on demand. If you’re thinking about how your organization can take advantage of the Microsoft Power Platform (Power BI, PowerApps, Flow and Dynamics 365) it’s worth looking through the sessions.

What’s New In Office 365 (July 2018)

It’s been another busy month for Office 365 updates.  Many of the updates that rolled out Duane Odumwere ahead of schedule which can be nice for folks that were waiting on a specific update to implement a solution.  However, it’s nice when the Office 365 Roadmap is accurate😊.

Microsoft 365 Admin Center

This one’s been in the pipeline for some time but if you haven’t checked it out yet be prepared for some changes.  Content is still very similar so it’s not a terribly difficult adjustment but anything with Administration rights in Office 365 should get familiar with the new layout sooner rather than later at https://admin.microsoft.com.

Setup Xamarin iOS to Login to Azure ADAL and Sharepoint Online

misc1This project takes a lot from this and makes changes for the new API (you must register your SharePoint application with Azure AD).  This document sets up Azure AD for Sharepoint Online.

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.

Managing Content for Similar SharePoint Sites

Mike BerrymanI have a client that has over 50 subsites of the root site in a SharePoint site collection that are all pretty much the same.  There’s a site for each county in the client’s state, each one with web parts to show some data from the root site that’s relevant to that specific county (contacts’ information, documents, that kind of thing).  Whenever they wanted to make a change to, say, the contacts web part for these county site, they had to modify over fifty copies of the same web part.  Tedious to say the least.  After a few rounds of making these kind of repetitious modifications it was decided that I would need to come up with a solution to make managing this stuff much easier.

So I did.

Inject Scripts in SharePoint with JavaScript

Mike BerrymanDon’t worry, it’s the good kind of Script Injection!

I was recently working in a SharePoint environment where I wanted to have some JavaScript libraries (like jQuery and moment.js) available across the entire site collection.  The most obvious solution would be to add a reference to each library into the master page(s) used across the sites in the site collection but for this situation editing any master page was not an option.  Instead I wanted to use User Custom Actions to do script injection.

How Document Sets Improved Our Sales Support Process

6We’ve been working with documents sets for a couple of years now.  Document sets are a great way to group the different types of documents that we create to combine into one Statement of Work that is delivered to our clients.  It is also a great place to store any and all of the emails and documents that the client may give to us to refer to as we put together our SOW.

Don’t Let SharePoint Online Become the new SharePoint Foundation

1_bgOver the past five years I have worked on over 100 SharePoint projects in both an IT Professional and Developer capacity. In that time, many things have improved with SharePoint, but I wonder if SharePoint Online is going to be the new SharePoint Foundation.
