SPSNL wrap-up and my Fourth (Third) MVP award received.

For the first couple of years, January the 1st was always a nervous day despite generally nursing a hangover. There would be some frantic monitoring of the mail box (including the junk mail) until the notification popped up from the MVP Global Administrator congratulating you on being re-awarded for another year. Then in 2017, Microsoft …

Enforced MFA for Office 365 Admins – Don’t get caught out!

I’ve been working on conditional access for a while now with a client, trying to find the right balance of command and control versus usability for the organisation. Just as I thought we were there, I noticed a new policy called “Baseline policy: Require MFA for admins (Preview)” had appeared. Given that this is buried …

Configuring default Office 365 Labels using PowerShell

Office 365 Labels over Information Management Policies? Office 365 labels are starting to get quite prolific across the stack now and I’m starting to see better uses for them over SharePoint Retention policies. If you’re not familiar with Office 365 labels, my MVP colleague Joanne Klein has a great blog post from last year that …

ContentTypes added to SPO using PNP PoSH not working as intended!

I’m in the process of building a large scale DMS solution for a client and part of this work is deploying a lot of content types to various libraries. I wrote the deployment scripts a couple of months ago and they have been working just fine.. or so I thought. I’m using the PNP PowerShell …

In an earlier blog post, I took a closer look at the CopyTo function that has been available in the Modern OneDrive and SharePoint experience for some time now. Whilst this was a definite improvement on the previous CopyTo functionality available in SharePoint, it was still a few steps short of what would be needed …

Classic Site collection deletion issues with Office 365 Retention labels

UPDATE – Fellow MVP Joanne Klein reminded me of the Retention Containers via twitter. These are used to wrap up expired groups and their content when a Retention Policy label is in play. It would appear that this is the behaviour that we’re seeing below in Classic Site collection. This actually makes a lot of …

Microsoft Teams PowerShell Cmdlets – Serendipitous arrival!

Microsoft Teams PowerShell cmdlets I’m working with a client currently that wants to be able to control the creation of groups, using their existing provisioning system to trigger a PowerShell script for the creation after an internal approval workflow is executed. Whilst this worked fine for the creation of Office 365 groups, what it didn’t …

Microsoft Ignite – Day 2

Wow, suffice to say that Day 2 of Ignite did not disappoint the SharePoint crowd one bit, with a whole host of announcements coming out during Jeff Tepers much awaited session this morning. As usual, the session started with a few stats that outline just how popular SharePoint and Office 365 has become. More than …

Ignite 2017 – Day 1

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to swing a trip to Ignite this year which is a real pity as this year there’s been some great announcements already on Day 1, with the real meat of the SharePoint and OneDrive announcements to come during Jeff Teper’s session tomorrow. Whilst not all of the content is available by …
